SAP has expanded its Mobile Secure portfolio with the addition of a mobile application management component - a white-label, localizable and secure enterprise app store that companies can use to proactively push their mobile apps to employees, business partners and consumers.
The new enterprise app store, mobile place, is included at no additional cost with the purchase of SAP Mobile Secure portfolio. For managed users, it identifies when their device is out of compliance and directs them to download the appropriate mobile device management (MDM) solution, regardless of the MDM vendor, before they are able to install any apps. Mobile place is included at no additional cost with the purchase of SAP Mobile Secure portfolio.
Mobile place provides an enhanced user experience on both MDM-managed and unmanaged devices. For IT admins, it enables a single destination to publish, manage and analyze apps, content and profiles — including any MDM, enterprise mobile management (EMM) and mobile content management (MCM) offering. For end users, it enables discovery and download of relevant apps and set up-related services such as network access, email, identity and more.
“With the expansion of the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio on both managed and unmanaged devices, we are delivering the best mobile experience for our customers for consuming enterprise apps,” said Senthil Krishnapillai, vice president, SAP Mobile Secure. “For example, a large beverage company will use mobile place to make their mobile apps easily accessible to distributors, and a healthcare provider can provide a single mobile app to authorized patients. The discovery features of mobile place help ensure any corporate developed or licensed apps can be easily configured.”
Mobile place provides a secure, multi-channel central hub that offers self-service capabilities to best serve employees, business partners and consumers while reducing IT support costs. This solution brings the management of content, apps and devices together in a seamless workflow for IT admins, application developers and end users.
