Kony Development Cloud

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is great for the company that needs a one-stop-shop for their complete e2e solution. No more having to maintain multiple applications separately. This is good for the company that needs to unify their solutions under one umbrella and allow the seamless bi-directional flow of data from start to finish. SAP Cloud Platform is not for everyone. Those smaller companies that may not have the budget or may not have the complexity of applications may not benefit as much as larger companies with a much larger footprint.

Pros

Kony Development Cloud

  • Cross-platform mobile development - we used this for developing the app on a native platform (which could be iOS, Android). Kony offers tools that are useful because they decrease costs and increase the speed at which apps are developed. In addition, cross-platform mobile development tools are generally quite simple to use as they are based off of the common languages for scripting, including CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It has become easy to find resources with the skill set especially because this is based out of common languages.
  • In Kony mobility platform Visualizer makes app development quick and easy. Tons of documentation online.
  • Used Kony to develop an amazing app that serves our customers well. WYSIWYG interface is great for building interfaces quickly. Build and test quickly for many different targets.

Cons

Kony Development Cloud

  • Manuals or instructions need to be streamlined with its high pricing.
  • It's a very intricate platform. It only performs moderately while the app is currently in operation.

SAP Cloud Platform

  • It can do better on availability.
  • If some advance notification can be provided on security patching plans, then we can be better prepared. Recently a security patch on the platform killed some function on our portal that used some older protocols - we couldn't test these as we didn't see the patch coming to avert this outage.

Alternatives Considered

Kony Development Cloud

We evaluated variety of platforms like Xamarin, Sencha, PhoneGap. When we were initially evaluating Xamarin, it was not Microsoft and so the releases and features were not very streamlined. Also licensing was a issue with that.Sencha was a very attractive cross mobile platform but was expensive. Just for handful of developers price was high. Ours is big enterprise so licensing costs became huge.PhoneGap is based out of open source Apache Cordova project and is completely free to use, which goes some way to explain its popularity. The enterprise version boasts marketing features via Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, so when it launches it will probably be monetized.Comparing with the features platform has to offer and the price tag attached to it, we narrowed down to using Kony.

SAP Cloud Platform

Whilst Heroku will interact nicely with Salesforce, from my experience, SAP's integration is better for enterprises. The connection of several data sources is really the main advantage with the addition of the platform working on top of your existing SAP landscape. User access management is also very easy for the organisation.

Return on Investment

Kony Development Cloud

  • Positive on ROI. I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing.
  • It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS.
  • Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach.

SAP Cloud Platform

  • It has helped to test the business's capability within minimal time and limited investment.
  • Successful integration between ERP and cloud applications.
