Put the Power of SAP Data in Your Pocket
For amazing performance and experience when accessing
SAP data, use SAP Fiori® apps on mobile devices powered by
Intel® Atom™ processors
Your Challenge: Deliver
SAP Apps with Performance and Usability
for Mobile Users
Organizations like yours rely on SAP data
for sales, marketing, human resources
(HR), and other activities in the enterprise.
Client apps collect and present SAP data
that can help run day-to-day activities and
enable analysts to make smarter business
decisions. Using traditional tools, building
and maintaining those apps can require
significant time, planning, and resources.
This is particularly true for forward thinking
businesses that strive to support a growing mobile workforce. To meet the needs
of mobile users, IT developers need to
design apps that are easy to use, that fit
the way users work, and that are optimized for users’ devices. Users also need
devices that are built to accommodate
mobile apps with optimum performance,
efficiency, and security for sensitive data.
With SAP Fiori® and mobile devices
powered by Intel® Atom™ processors,
you can quickly roll out SAP apps that
provide a simple, responsive user
experience for mobile users, along with
speed, efficiency, and enhanced security.
A New Approach to
SAP Mobile Apps
SAP Fiori is the new user experience
(UX) for SAP software. With SAP Fiori UX,
you can quickly design and roll out SAP
Fiori apps that are fast, responsive, and
may be easier to configure and use than
traditional enterprise apps. SAP Fiori apps
are built with SAPUI5, a framework based
on HTML5, which allows apps to automatically adapt to any mobile platform. In
addition, SAP Fiori apps are designed to
consume data through open standards
using RESTful (OData) services during
runtime. This means that they can deliver
a personalized experience for SAP software, where users are presented with only
the relevant tasks and activities that they
need to do their jobs.
SAP Fiori apps are designed to offer an
improved user experience over traditional
transaction-based enterprise software.
But for an enhanced experience on mobile
devices, users need underlying hardware
that can accommodate and enhance
the real-time data experience that SAP
Fiori apps offer.

Peak Performance
for Key Insights
When users run SAP Fiori apps on devices
powered by Intel Atom processors, they can
more securely access SAP data from the
cloud or data center in real-time, from any
location. With that level of real-time, anywhere access to key insights, users are empowered to make great business decisions.
To demonstrate the performance gains
of the combined SAP Fiori and Intel Atom
processor solution, Intel engineers ran
timed tests for several real-world tasks
in SAP Fiori apps running on Android*
mobile devices powered by
Intel Atom processors.
The tests were run on two mobile devices:1
• Dell Venue 8 7840* tablet built on the
64-bit-ready Intel Atom processor
Z3580 running Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
and Google Chrome* version 43
(Note: The Dell Venue 8 7840 is now
available with Android 5.1.0 Lollipop.)
• ASUS ZenFone 2* smart phone built on
the 64-bit-ready Intel Atom processor
Z3560 running Android 5.0 Lollipop
and Google Chrome version 43
Testing consisted of three scenarios using
SAP Fiori apps. All tests were run using
the Google Chrome browser (version 43).
Results are the averages of 10 runs.
Scenario one used a transactional app
called Shop, which is an online shop
where users can view available products
and order them using the shopping cart.
Users can also write reviews and manage
a favorites list.2
Scenario two used a transactional app
called Manage Products, which lets users
manage (add, edit, and delete) products
that are available in an online shop.3
And finally, scenario three used the
transactional app Approve Purchase
Orders, which lets users view and
approve pending purchase orders.
Users can also forward approvals to
other employees for further processing.4
Tests included refreshing product-list
pages, viewing product details, adding
an item to a cart, and other real-world
tasks. In each case, data was queried
and retrieved from the SAP HANA®
platform. The data was then presented
on the mobile device’s screen using a
simple, responsive design that was
automatically formatted for each device.
As seen in Figure 2, both Intel® processor–
powered devices showed very fast performance for all tasks, with total times ranging from under one second to just over
three seconds for the longest task. The
tests, all performed on devices powered
by Intel Atom SoC platforms, demonstrate
the great performance that you can expect
when you run SAP Fiori apps on Intel
processor–powered mobile devices.
