Hundreds of global customers are using Kony’s “no external middleware” approach to mobilize their systems across manufacturing, utilities, consumer packaged goods, pharmaceuticals and many other industries. Kony offers a unified solution that supports sophisticated integration and the complete lifecycle of mobile applications. Three key integration options include SkyMobile, SAP NetWeaver® Gateway services, and SAP® Java Connector (JCo). These integration options, coupled with our packaged business integration modules, provide the optimal solution for mobilizing all aspects of your business, from mission-critical enterprise applications, to lightweight productivity solutions.
The Sky Technologies SkyMobile solution designed for use with SAP NetWeaver® is certified by SAP® to help ensure compatibility with releases and compliance with standards. It is a complete solution (as opposed to just a connector), designed to support mission-critical enterprise applications requiring high levels of security, management, scalability and complexity. It has a SAP NetWeaver® ABAP™ add-on component that provides sophisticated interface management and data synchronization controls, thus eliminating the need for external middleware, which tends to be the major bottleneck for performance and scalability issues. SkyMobile Data Objects may be explored and automatically incorporated into Kony Studio to provide efficient data synchronization and secure offline storage.
You may integrate Kony applications with SAP NetWeaver® Gateway services to deploy lightweight, real-time productivity applets. Unlike the SkyMobile platform, this option requires an intermediate Kony server to authenticate and synchronize data with the mobile devices. You may still use the powerful SkyMobile ABAP® add-on with this option to utilize data objects and manage the interfaces.
The SAP Java Connector (JCo) provides remote function call (RFC)integration to easily invoke BAPI® and other custom functions. You can easily explore and incorporate RFC function modules from within Kony Studio. This option is well suited forreal-time solutions with a low volume of users and data. You may still use the powerful SkyMobile ABAP® add-on with this option to utilize data objects and manage the interfaces.
Kony enables rapid pre-built SAP mobilization by providing packaged modules that act as an effective abstraction layer from the complexities of the backend system. They consist of pre-defined objects and definitions that support deep, rich mobile functionality for a specific business process. You may customize and extend the modules as required. In our experience, over 70% of a project effort deals with integration with back-end business processes. These modules effectively reduce that effort by providing a comprehensive consistent foundation for mobile integration.
