SAP Mobile Start App

SAP Mobile Start is the native mobile app for employees to access their SAP apps, processes, and business data on iOS and Android devices.

SAP Mobile Start helps employees stay up to date with the latest information through notifications and widgets that can be easily responded to with a simple "tap". The app is integrated with SAP Task Center to enable you to quickly view and manage workflow tasks, and with your mobile device's search function to help you quickly find the content you're looking for. Users can personalize their individual home page, and organizations can add their own customization and branding with the extensible framework. SAP Mobile Start also supports integration with different UI technologies and third-party web apps.

SAP Baseline Activation Service

SAP Baseline Activation Service for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition

The SAP Baseline Activation Service for SAP S/4HANA Cloud, public edition is a service that provides a pre-configured exploration environment within a short period of time, personalized to the customer and enriched with the customer's own sample data to help them visualize and consume SAP Best Practice business processes. Ideally, the environment could later become the customer's productive environment, where they could expand on the foundation by deploying additional functionality in future iterations.

The predefined scope is a selection of Finance-led ERP business processes, which are already used by the majority of our customers. Finance-led ERP covers core processes in the Finance, Sales, and Procurement lines of business with one company and one legal entity. The scope is fixed and meant to be a foundation that would be followed by implementation of additional scope in the future.

The activation, configuration, and testing is completed in a public cloud 3-system landscape. This is an agile and modular subscription-based cloud service that is quick to implement with a nominal fee. The landscape is powered by automation and accelerators to simplify the onboarding process from provisioning to go-live and can be an ideal starting point for small and mid-size customers.
