Capgemini, Sybase and SAP are working together to provide enterprise mobility services.

The collaboration aims to provide customers with mobile device management and mobile enterprise application platform services.

Capgemini will host Sybase's managed mobility technologies as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS), while Capgemini and SAP have agreed to build a range of new mobility services for its customers.

Fernando Alvarez, vice-president and mobile solutions practice leader at Capgemini, said it will provide customers with "the most complete suite of SAP solutions" either on-premise or as-a-service.

Capgemini will offer the mobile end-to-end services for a monthly fee, which uses mobility software from SAP, as well as hosting and application support.

The companies will make use of SAP's mobile sales application, Sybase's mobile workflow application for SAP Business Suite and SAP's mobile service application, as well as inventory management, materials management and warehouse management applications. Products will also include point-of-sale (PoS) systems for consumer products and retailers.

Chris McClain, senior vice-president of global mobility and Sybase solutions at SAP, said he anticipates one billion people will be "unlocking additional value" from SAP back-office systems via mobile devices and tablets.

"Working with strategic partners such as Capgemini is critical to helping SAP unlock this value for our customers," he said.
