Read this interview with Thorsten Stephan, the Development Manager for SAP responsible for Mobility, to learn about SAP's current and cutting-edge mobile projects. See three ways Google Glass and SAP mobile technology can make warehouse management safer and more efficient and how they are doing it. Find out if augmented reality is the next evolution of the UI.

Thorsten Stephan is a Development Manager for SAP and responsible for Mobility. He’s an SAP thought-leader and was wearing the iconic thought-leader jersey when I met him. It seemed like everyone at the convention wanted to talk with him, but I managed to get a few minutes to talk with him about what may just be the future of SAP Mobile, augmented reality.

What does mobility mean to you at SAP?

In that area [mobility] we always look for new technologies and see how we can adopt them as business scenarios and this is what we are doing with augmented reality. So, here we see augmented reality as a new UI technology, basically, which provides us with the ability to aggregate data individualization and data that comes from various data sources and allows the end user to be much more productive in a very consumer-like style.
