SAP Mobile Architect

Dear SAP Guru,

I would need your expert advise, from few months I am interested in the role of SAP Mobile Consultant and I was wondering which skills, sap modules and programming languages a mobile consultant should have?

Right now I am working on SAP FICO, I will also take SAP ABAP and SAP CRM Classes.

Thanks a lot

Lorenzo Giovannini

    Hi Lorenzo,

    as Rodrigo said, SAP's mobile roadmap changed dramatically over time. The "oldschool" stuff (ITS, ITS Mobile, SAP NetWeaver Mobile Engine) which could be used by you as an ABAP'ler is nearly obsolete, except if you plan to use specific mobile transactions in ERP/SCM/CRM world.

    The "one and only" valid way for up-to-date mobility is SAP Mobile Plattform (SMP) to be found here SMP Developer Center

    Depending on your target knowledge skill (backend, frondend or architect) I would propose

    • SAP NetWeaver Gateway (for ABAP backends)
    • WDE360 UD development with UI5
      --> this 2 courses allows you to develop nice FIORI things without SMP
    • MOB020 for Mobile Plattform
    • SMP541 for SMP in conjunction with hybrid apps on end user devices
    • SMP530 for SMP with GW100 (OData) usage

    But overall, you may have to forget ABAP and get in touch with Java (Script), HTML5 and OData.

    Best regards,

      Thank you very much for your helpful answer Rodrigo,

      I am challenged to understand all the possible developments in the SAP World (Adobe Forms, Cloud..), I do have 28 hours of training on SAP HANA, 68 hours on ABAP which includes Enhancement, Forms, Interfaces and a lot of material, 50 hours of training on SAP UI5 and Netwaver with ODATA.

      I think your idea of training on UI5 instead of old Webdynpro is very good, and I will follow your advice, I am getting a very good insight of SAP FICO and I am enjoying learning ABAP code. I think I will try to work as ABAP/FICO developer for at least other 2/3 years while I get my training on other fields.

      I think SAP is amazing and I really hope in a great expansion/success of the software.

      Thank you

      Best Regards

    Hi Lorenzo, if you are really interested in SAP mobile I'wll advice you to start learning SAPUI5 and take a look into SAP Fiori. As far as I know there is no SAP Mobile consultant and if there are I rly doubt there will be any future with "SAP Mobile"

    Sadly SAP regards "mobile" never had a trully platform, there was something called SAP Mobile, then something with SYBASE, even was a marketplace to purchase apps.

    The future is S/4 HANA (SAP for HANA) and it uses SAP Fiori as interface (based on SAPUI5, this means its responsive, can be used in desktop, tablet or phones) and this is NOT done with ABAP, at least not the layout part.

    To simplify a little, SAP Fiori is the interface (JavaScript) but it consume ODATA Services (done in SAP Gateway (ABAP).

    I'm an ABAPer since a decade ago and I found myself in a position were I don't know were SAP is going, something things don't work out... ilke SAP Mobile or SAP Portal, but it seems that SAP is betting hard with S/4 HANA.
