Capgemini, a provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, is cooperating with Sybase, an SAP company, to manage the deployment of enterprise mobility solutions. Capgemini will host mobile solutions powered by industry-leading Sybase Managed Mobility technologies and offer them on a software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service basis. In addition, Capgemini and SAP AG intend to enter into an agreement to build differentiated mobility solutions, through which Capgemini plans to make mobility solutions from SAP available to customers.
"We believe now is the time to expand into this market in cooperation with SAP and Sybase, leveraging our expertise and knowledge in mobile solutions," said Fernando Alvarez, vice president and Mobile Solutions practice leader at Capgemini. "We are able to offer one of the most complete suites of SAP solutions available on premise or as a service, providing multiple options to meet customers' needs from licensing to implementation, hosting and operation."
Through the agreement with Sybase, Capgemini mobile solutions can be provided via an on-premise environment as well as a hosted environment, through the public or private cloud, including:
Capgemini will also provide mobile end-to-end solutions through simple monthly fees covering mobility software from SAP, hosting and application support that will benefit customers as follows:
- Reduce levels of complexity associated with mobility by bundling software and services from installation to operations without any upfront investment required
- Allow customers to leverage existing technology investments in SAP solutions and execute transactions through new easy-to-use interfaces
- Accelerate customer ROI through real-time and accurate mobile data collection, streamlining data, and reducing manual intervention
- Reduce risks from custom program development and avoid drawbacks of proprietary IT applications
Capgemini and SAP plan to develop a structured go-to-market model aimed at promoting greater cooperation between their sales teams. The two companies will leverage service offerings from Capgemini in support of high-value mobile applications from SAP. These may include the SAP Mobile Sales application, Sybase Mobile Workflow application for SAP Business Suite, SAP Mobile Service application, inventory management, materials management and warehouse management applications, as well as point-of-sales solutions for key vertical markets such as consumer products, oil and gas, manufacturing and retail.
"Mobility is a real game-changer for the enterprise, and we anticipate that 1 billion people will be unlocking additional value from their SAP back-office systems via their mobile devices and tablets," said Chris McClain, senior vice president, Global Mobility and Sybase Solutions, SAP. "Working with strategic partners like Capgemini is critical to helping SAP unlock this value for our customers. We look forward to leveraging Capgemini's mobility expertise to accelerate adoption of mobility solutions from SAP."
