The Business Web Initiative at SAP Research addresses both the cloud and mobile fronts, and the rapidly blurring boundaries between these two worlds. The Business Web is envisioned as a true business cloud that provides a marketplace & a real time trading network, with the necessary infrastructure, technologies, applications, content and connectivity, to deliver end-to-end business services that are very easy to use, that are well optimized for mobility & smart operations in real time, and that are extremely easy for the ecosystem to build and deliver.
