Dec 09. 2015

Collabouration offers businesses new ways to develop increased functionality and a seamless mobile experience

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 09 December, 2015 – At Oracle OpenWorld 2015, Samsung Electronics showcased premier enterprise solutions created for Samsung’s best-in-market mobile devices and developed through Oracle’s industry-leading architecture. Together, Samsung and Oracle are improving the end-user experience by delivering solutions unique to Samsung devices and Oracle Mobile Cloud Services.

From smartphones to tablets and wearables, Samsung and Oracle are driving enterprise mobility and allowing professionals to be more productive. The new Cordova plug-in for Samsung developers, also on display at Oracle OpenWorld, makes enterprise app development easier through the packaging of key Application Programme Interfaces (APIs) for the best Android business capabilities on the market. The Cordova plug-in integrates perfectly into Oracle’s developer tools while granting access to Samsung’s unrivaled hardware features such as multi-window and the S Pen.

“As two of the world’s leading drivers of enterprise mobility, Samsung and Oracle are positioned to deliver an unrivaled user experience that pushes the boundaries of productivity in the workplace,” says Paulo Ferreira, Director of Enterprise Mobility at Samsung South Africa. “Our alliance with Oracle is not only powering professionals and businesses through mobility, but also enabling developers and systems integrators to produce unique enterprise solutions that help organisations reach new levels of growth and success.”

All enterprise solutions presented by Samsung at Oracle OpenWorld are immediately available for incorporation into the daily professional environment. Examples include solutions from systems integrators such as HCL and AuraPlayer, which will be displayed on a range of devices including the Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy Tab A. HCL’s predictive maintenance solution allows the management of machinery and heavy equipment that typically created a backlog of paper files. AuraPlayer’s collision reporting system enables rapid entry of critical incidents so that transportation authorities can take immediate action.

“Oracle Corporation is the market leader in Enterprise Software and Technologies, so it makes sense to partner with a global mobility leader such as Samsung. The partnership will ensure our joint customers benefit from our enterprise mobility and productivity solutions that will allow them to leverage the Internet of Things (loT), in order to drive corporate revenue growth and global expansion. This model is designed to attract not only the boardroom’s attention, but also that of the millennial digitally native generation,” says Adv Stefan Diedericks, Alliance and Channel Director, Oracle South Africa.

Wearables are the next generation of innovation in business, and Samsung will highlight several use cases of wearables at Oracle OpenWorld. Australian business solutions provider Rinami built a field asset management tool specifically designed to work with wearables, which will be demonstrated on the Samsung Gear S2. Australian Agricultural Company, one of the largest producers of wagyu beef, worked with Rinami to create a wearable app that improved livestock management. Instead of carrying cumbersome laptops and field notebooks, ranchers are able to collect data, interpret in the field and make effectual decisions through their mobile device app for dramatic increases in production.

Visitors to Oracle OpenWorld can also learn about the Samsung Enterprise Alliance Programme (SEAP). SEAP is a program highlighting a wide range of global enterprise partners and developers to provide business customers with differentiated solutions built on Samsung mobile devices.

collabouration with Oracle is a part of Samsung’s continued efforts to expedite key mobile application development for enterprises such as the recent Samsung Business Services’ work in the U.S. in the areas of workforce management and business tasks.
