    Good discussion on SAP’s moiblity position based on customer feedback and working sessions. a0Thanks for laying it out for people. a0I always appreciate what you guys have to say. Nice job.a0There is no question that SAP could make a significant number of applications itself, but I have consistently heard that SAP wants partners to make the bulk of the apps. a0It does not matter if SAP makes 2 or 200 apps, customers will buy the apps that improve their ability to execute and allow them to leverage their existing investment in SAP (Business Suite / On Premise) in a meaningful way. a0I do not think any partner should be waiting to see what SAP is building in terms of enterprise mobile LOB apps. a0Especially at this time when demand is growing quickly, people with good ideas, validated by customers willing to pay to see them executed, should get out in front. a0Yes, they may eventually compete with SAP, but for an ecosystem to thrive there has to be some competition. a0SAP needs to make its plans with SUP much more clear to both customers and partners.Full disclosure I work for SAP, but do not have any direct connection to our mobile strategy currently, so I am just speaking as an individual trying to look at it from a customer and partner perspective. a0I also used to run the solution management for SAP EcoHub (until feb 2011) so I can confirm that the mobile app store is currently a subset of EcoHub but there have been, and will continue to be more investment in this area. a0I think SAP does realize that to rely on the ecosystem it will need to support the ecosystem with at least some of the required market mechanisms (including some form of enterprise mobile application marketplace).Thanks again for the good discussion on an important topic.
