Terry Stepien, president of SAP Sybase's iAnywhere unit, has said enterprises will be "mostly using HTML 5" in two years' time to deliver business software to various devices.

Stepien, speaking to bloggers at SAP's Sapphire conference in Orlando, was outlining Sybase integration and its plans to deliver enterprise apps to mobile devices. SAP is planning to build on one mobile stack. At present, SAP apps are built on mobile NetWeaver as well as Sybase's platform.

As noted before, SAP is working towards HTML 5 as a way to hit multiple devices such as Apple's iPad, RIM's PlayBook and assorted Android tablets. Currently, Adobe's Flash — a delivery method for enterprise dashboards — works on PlayBooks and Android devices, but not on the iPad, which has seen some enterprise take-up.
