WALLDORF — SAP SE today announced the expansion of the SAP Mobile Secure portfolio with the addition of mobile application management, a brandable, localizable and secure enterprise app store that makes it easy for companies to simply and proactively push their mobile apps into the hands of employees, business partners and consumers. The mobile place feature offers a superior experience for users and delivers apps, services and content in a simple way to both managed and unmanaged mobile devices. 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 for the enterprise has to be both intuitive and secure,” said Maria Yauger, director, Messaging, Meeting Technology and Web Infrastructure, Phillips 66. “Being able to manage our environment so that these two important facets of mobile come together is critical for the success of our mobility strategy.”
Mobile place provides an enhanced user experience on both MDM-managed and unmanaged devices. For IT admins, it is the 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 is the place to easily discover and download 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.
