SAP and its mobility unit Sybase rolled out a slew of apps designed for manufacturing, consumer product, utilities, retail and other industries.

More importantly, the apps highlight the collaboration between SAP and Sybase, which was acquired about a year ago. SAP and Sybase have been pushing their mobile enterprise vision at Sapphire with multiple demonstrations of enterprise processes delivered via iPads, RIM PlayBooks and smartphones.

The apps are built on Sybase's Unwired Platform, which will be the basis of future mobile enterprise apps.

Most of the apps are designed for workers in the field. SAP's Field Service mobile app is designed to bring data to mobile workers and connect to the company's enterprise software such as customer relationship management. The Field Service app will feature mapping, service order management and field assignments.

Retail apps will allow for customer management on the fly, product details and surveys and audits. There's a laundry list of apps for SAP's human resources, procurement, finance and sales software.
