Dear Portal Experts,

We are pleased to update you that SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.3 SP8 is available on Service Marketplace.

As you probably know, with the previous SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.3 Service Pack (SP7), we have released the first official set of capabilities enabling the consumption of the portal on mobile devices (a.k.a. “Portal On Device”). This new release (SAP NetWeaver 7.3 SP8) includes several significant new enhancements for the consumption of the SAP NetWeaver Portal on mobile devices. Among them are:

  • Out of the box, fully supported, tablet framework page (in addition to the smartphone framework page already shipped with SAP NetWeaver 7.3 SP7).
  • Enhanced and streamlined branding and theme-ing capabilities for the mobile framework pages and mobile applications.
  • Customizable Toolbox area for the smartphone and tablet framework pages. Toolbox is an overlaying list of launchable items, such as Favorites or Contacts, which you open and close using a tab on the left side of the mobile framework page.
  • Out-of-the-box available configurations, such as: An Every User Mobile Role, enhanced logon pages for on-device usage, device group mechanism is active by default, and more.
  • Consumption of Web Page Composer content on mobile devices.
  • Wizard based NWDS plugin for consumption of SAP NetWeaver Gateway services.

Combined with the upcoming planned release of Enterprise Workspaces 1.1 Service Pack 3 (planned for Q4\2012) – we now have a truly compelling solution for our existing SAP Portal customers to easily “mobilize” your existing portal content.

Below you can find a short YouTube video demonstrating the consumption of the SAP NetWeaver Portal on a tablet device:

I would recommend you all to review the detailed presentation. The full list of new portal capabilities released with SAP NetWeaver 7.3 SP8 is available in the Service Pack release notes.

All these new capabilities will be demonstrated in the coming SAP TechEd conference. Looking forward to meeting you there!
