Custom mobile apps hold the promise of increased productivity. AppCentral® allows businesses to realize that promise by safely unlocking corporate information for use in the extended enterprise – employees, contractors, even ecosystem partners and distributors.
The smart device market is exploding. With the mainstreaming of BYOD, many of those devices that are purchased for personal use will be used within the enterprise. Custom mobile apps that leverage a company’s know-how will help organizations realize the productivity benefits of BYOD. The more smart devices that can get access, the bigger the benefit. However, retaining control will be a concern, as apps will likely contain or have access to proprietary business information. Additionally, apps will need to be updated, perhaps multiple times, and eventually retired.
As your company builds out a mobile app portfolio, consider the following questions:
- How will apps be controlled on devices that are not owned by the enterprise?
- How will apps be distributed to employees, contractors and ecosystem partners?
- How will apps from multiple sources be managed and updated?
Focus on the Apps, not the Device
AppCentral makes it easy for enterprises to distribute, control and manage the mobile apps that are driving new levels of productivity, even on devices beyond corporate control.
