  • How to connect the SAP Mobile Cards application to your SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services

Prerequisites


Step 1: Understand SAP Mobile Cards

SAP Mobile Cards is a feature within SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services which provides our customers access to a micro-application platform to publish data into a consumer-grade wallet or passbook-style app. It allows companies to quickly create simple, yet highly valuable quick-win apps. These apps can give access to useful organisational tools like to do lists, payslips, time sheets and workflows like Leave request approvals, or Purchase Order approvals.

You can find more details on the SAP Mobile Cards developer page.
