SAP and Research in Motion said Friday that they are collaborating to bring the ERP giant's applications to the BlackBerry.

Under the deal, SAP will develop its applications for RIM. Among the key points:

  • SAP CRM application will be the first to run native on the BlackBerry smartphone and integrate with RIM's email, address and calendar apps. Companies that already have SAP's CRM apps for the BlackBerry will "require only basic user training and minimal incremental IT infrastructure investments."
  • RIM will enhance its framework for building workflow-enabled apps. Once this framework is in place more SAP applications will be available on the BlackBerry.
  • Data will be synchronized via the BlackBerry Enterprise Server automatically.
  • Deployments will be centrally managed and companies that already have BlackBerry Enterprise Server and SAP apps can use their existing infrastructure.

RIM and SAP will demo CRM on the BlackBerry next week at Sapphire in Orlando.
