mobile card kit

New to SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services, mobile card kit feature?

Share data from virtually any back-end to iOS and Android devices in a mobile-friendly format with this new feature in SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services. Download the SAP Mobile Cards client app to get started.

Share Data from Fiori Applications

Once configured, end users can select content from their SAP Fiori Launchpad to share the card deck on the device.  Select the content you want to add to the application on your Mobile Device, select Add to Mobile and you will see a successfully added Card that will send content to your mobile device.

Push

SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services uses Apple's Push Notification Services (APNs), Google's Firebase Cloud messaging (FCM) to inform SAP Mobile Cards client that new content is available, as well as the client will fetch new content because of the APNs/FCM message.

iPhone Features

Use the iPhone Spotlight feature to search for cards that contain information you are looking for like contacts.

Use the iPhone Shake Gesture to detect a card with a timestamp, address, or both.  When you shake the device relevant cards within the location or within the day of the timestamp will be shown.

From the card deck, quickly call, text, email, locate or edit content using native iOS applications.

Offline


The offline capabilities of SAP Mobile Cards app let’s end users access information even without a network connection. Card content with the most up-to-date information that was available before going offline is stored in the card deck. While offline, end users can view both sides of each card and delete them.


Fiori Templates

System Administrators can define new card types, creating a card with the data they want to display, and make them available to end users who in turn, can publish the content to their respective SAP Mobile Cards applications on the device.

Interact

When content is sent that requires user input, such as approve or reject, allow for the end user to act on that content and submit back to the server.

Under the hood

SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services acts as a gateway between the SAP Fiori front-end server and the mobile card kit feature by retrieving information from the server and making it available to SAP Mobile Cards app.
