Hello all,

actually I'm not shure what of these things I need to configure and manage the hybrid UI5-Apps in company?

Is SAP Afaria (which belongs to SAP Mobile Secure - correct?) or SAP Mobile Service for App & Device Management the right tool for me? I already have a SAP Mobile Platform for my offline-Datas.

Please - can anybody help me and say, what I should use?

Thanks a lot.

App and devive management service on SAP Cloud Platform is what you need if you are looking for device management solution i.e MDM solution. Afaria is for on premise customers. Can you be more specific on what you are trying to do? Do you have trial account or production account? Are you trying to develop a Hybrid App? Are you to mobilize an exsiting application from an SAP back-end system?.

Thank you,

Hi Aziz,

Thanks for your answer. I have a SMP3.0 for hybrid mobile Apps, now I'd like to manage these Apps on my own App Store and have a MDM for all these devices.

So, I'm not shure what to do, because no SAP Cloud Platform but a SAP Mobile Platform.

I think I need Afaria for this, but I'm not shure...

Thanks a lot




Hi Marcel,

You may want to check our documentation for App and device managment here:

You can use this service to deploy your applications to your users. You have a few options, you just need to select the one that suites you best.

SAP's MDM solution in the cloud is "SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Service for app and device management". Earlier it was known as "SAP Mobile Secure". The on-premise version of this solution is called "Afaria". Both of these solutions are same with differences in features - the enterprise app store you mentioned about is available only on cloud version.


Hi Aziz & Midhun,

your answers were very helpfully. I'll check the doc for App & device management again. That the enterprise app store is available only on cloud version was one of the information I didn't found.

Thanks for you help.
