SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services Overview

SAP Cloud Platform Mobile services (SCP Mobile Services) provide reusable building blocks that enhance the mobile user experience like

  • Offline Data synchronization for apps
  • Push Notifications
  • Enterprise Security

Offline Apps

Today, most top rated modern apps will work offline. If not, they will display cached data. This helps to enhance the user experience and result in serious business benefits.

Why offline Apps?

Business doesn’t always happen where networks exist

Even in the world’s most developed countries, cities have data connectivity issues due to the crowded population, coverage variations, zero reception zones, unreliable connections, and problems incurred through traveling.

So, the apps built should have some offline fallback mechanism.

SAP Cloud Platform SCP App development


  • Synchronize with backend services and run them locally on a device.
  • The client database is UltraLite (optionally encrypted).
  • Offline OData services work in both read and write mode, allowing users to enter data on their device. When the user comes back online, OData updates are played back to the originating OData service.

Push notification

Push notifications can engage users and share important information based on their anticipated questions or needs. Admin can send Emergency updates and Scheduled reminders to the users via push notification

SAP Cloud platform mobile services for development and operations uses the native notification mechanisms APNS, FCM and WNS provided by the individual device platforms for iOS, Android, and Windows respectively, to forward push notifications it receives from notification provides ( back-end systems) to mobile devices

    The cloud platform is much safer because the server-side attack becomes nearly impossible still they are increasing the security in their systems. If you face Skype Mic Not Working while using the system then there is a very good solution for you.

    I totally agree about the safety of cloudy platforms. It is very common nowadays using them in businesses. But we don’t have to forget that the threat always exists. So be careful with your data and all the important information. You don’t have to give unlimited trust to any app or technology. AND PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK THE DEVELOPERS whom YOU TRUST PROJECTS OR IDEAS of yours.
