Salt Solutions was one of the mobile partners that caught our attention at the SAP Mobile App Challenge 2012. We managed to track down Mike Weide, Salt Solutions Consulting Manager, the day before SAPPHIRE Now Madrid kicked off.

We got Mike’s take on whether SAP’s Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) can help Salt Solutions build better mobile apps. Mike also shared Salt’s design priorities for retail solutions.  He also explains why making apps available for free (on a trial basis) is an important part of Salt’s mobile business model.
