BOSTON and TORONTO, May 22, 2013 /CNW/ - TELUS and Apperian today announced the launch of a new Mobile Application Management
service designed to help Canadian enterprises protect and manage their
corporate mobile apps and data when employees use their own wireless
devices at work. Without requiring intrusive and cumbersome technology
on users' devices the TELUS Mobile Application Management, powered by
Apperian technology, makes it incredibly easy for businesses to roll
out employee mobile apps and data on users' own devices.
"Mobile Application Management is changing the enterprise mobility
landscape. It presents a fantastic opportunity for businesses to find
new opportunities for productivity, efficiency, and agility in their
organization by rolling out corporate mobile apps to field workers in a
secure fashion," said Tony Krueck, vice-president of Business Products
and Services at TELUS. "By partnering with Apperian, we're helping IT
managers support their users' ability to add corporate apps directly on
employee-owned devices, while still enabling IT to enforce their
policies on these corporate apps."
Mobile Application Management gives companies the ability to secure,
manage and publish corporate apps on mobile devices without
inconveniencing users or requiring the installation of additional
software. With this service, Canadian enterprises can manage all
aspects of deploying apps in the enterprise in one secure location.
Using Apperian's cloud-based enterprise platform for managing mobile
apps, IT managers can easily roll out an enterprise app store with full
mobile application management capabilities. Employees can then discover
corporate apps in a catalog that looks and feels similar to mobile app
stores with intuitive ways to sort, search and install the corporate
apps they need.
"There are many large, global, sophisticated companies headquartered in
Canada that are realizing the value of employee apps, and now they can
rely on TELUS to help them get their employee app program off the
ground," said David Patrick, CEO at Apperian. "Working with TELUS,
we're helping Canadian businesses eliminate the complexity of managing
mobile apps - making it easy to support the ever-changing versions of
apps, operating systems and devices."
