ORANGE, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Tangoe, Inc. (NAS: TNGO) , a leading global provider of Mobile Communications Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced that it has signed a Software Development Cooperation Agreement with SAP AG. Under terms of the agreement, Tangoe and SAP will work cooperatively to integrate Tangoe's Mobile TEM software suite with the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio including SAP® Afaria® 7.0.
