NEW YORK, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte today launched its Mobility and Usability Lab, a collaborative effort co-sponsored with SAP and Sybase to address the growing mobility needs of their combined client base. This new innovation unit researches, designs, builds and tests new industry-focused mobile applications to help put clients' mobility strategies on the fast track, with an emphasis on usability. The lab is an extension of Deloitte's Mobility Practice in support of SAP® solutions.
Deloitte has already developed more than 30 modular, market-ready applications designed for easy client adoption. Sybase® Unwired Platform for mobile enterprise applications development is a technology which supports the lab. These applications target a spectrum of mobility needs Deloitte identified through its extensive work around the world in areas ranging from mobile time entry and customer self-service, to order management and medical device service.
"More frequently, we are seeing the need for all types of new mobile capabilities by our clients," said Carl Lay, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and SAP mobility practice lead. "So we collaborated with SAP and Sybase to develop foundational applications our clients can use to accelerate their mobility efforts. When a client wants to see how a potential solution would work, we can give them an up-close view. And, when it's time to implement, we already have many of the assets they need."
"Deloitte adds strong business insights, technical know-how and speed to deliver high value mobility solutions to our enterprise customers," said Chris McClain, senior vice president, Global Mobility and Sybase Solutions, SAP AG. "Their mobility practice is a natural extension of our mobile collaboration, and we're thrilled to see it in action."
Deloitte will be demonstrating several of the mobility applications developed through this collaboration as an exhibitor in booth 2402 at the SAPPHIRE® NOW customer conference, in Orlando, Fla., May 15-18.
