With Sapphire Now, SAP’s annual gathering coming to a close later today, it’s hardly surprising that there is a bit of something for everyone. There’s cloud, mobile and databases, with the ERP king announcing the release of around 70 apps that do different things with different systems.

What is new is that SAP has released a bunch of mobile apps that will interact with its software in such a way that users will be able to access and work with that software remotely.
