SAP and Apple have announced that Core ML will be available as part of the Cloud Platform SDK for iOS. Core ML is Apple’s on-device machine learning technology. In the new version of the Cloud Platform SDK, this makes it possible to create your own, intelligent iOS apps, driven by SAP Leonardo.

The new version of SAP Cloud Platform SDK should be available later this month. In that version, machine learning models are automatically downloaded to the iPhone and iPad so apps can run offline. If they are connected to SAP’s Cloud Platform, they can update dynamically.

With the partnership, SAP has rebuilt its most popular mobile apps for SuccessFactors and Concur solutions, and Asset Manager, so they can run native on iOS. The apps are fully integrated with iPhone and iPad to maximize Apple’s security, performance and latest platform innovations. It has also been announced that the native iOS experience in the broader application portfolio will be expanded, starting with Ariba solutions.

The company also announced the expansion of its app offering to Mac, building on the success of its iOS deployment. New apps for Mac are emerging to match the power and simplicity of using iOS apps.


The two companies offer nine ready-to-deploy apps for organizations that need help getting started with iOS apps. The nine apps are intended for different industries, and come from developers who have proven experience building with the Cloud Platform SDK for iOS. The apps are available on the SAP website.

“Enterprise customers see real business benefits when using iOS,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We’re excited that SAP is expanding these experiences on iPhone and iPad, and bringing them to Mac for the first time. This is an important milestone in our collaboration.”
