Few trends in history have been more explosive than the rapid adoption of smart phones and tablets. Suddenly, visionary business and IT leaders in every corner of an organization can take advantage of the incredible computing and networking power in every employee’s pocket. The trick is to get relevant apps and content into the hands of the people who need them.

This is especially challenging when the company does not own the devices on which the apps and content must safely run. And device manufacturers or OS providers haven’t made the transition painless.

Whether you need to secure, distribute and manage one app or dozens, we understand what it takes to drive adoption in the enterprise.

For business leaders, we can get apps or mobile content rolled out today. Our familiar, consumer-like user experience makes it easy for end-users to adopt and is IT-approved.

For IT leaders, we take away the pain of securely managing mobile apps across the enterprise. Our workflow-based platform was purpose-built to manage the full lifecycle of mobile apps and content.

IT & Mobile App Administrators

Using smartphones and tablets makes work easier for everyone across the business. Business users probably expect new apps and content to be available as quickly as they pinch, zoom, and swoosh. If they only knew what was required!

You know there’s a lot that goes into ensuring that the right apps and content are secured and made available to the right people. Apps need to be sourced, onboarded, inspected, secured, deployed, and then managed. You need the ability to remove corporate content and update corporate apps, but don’t want the liability of interfering with users’ personal content. You need the right mobile management platform.

You could go the containerization route, but that has proven to be an awful user experience for accessing and using apps. Adoption rates will inevitably suffer. Trying to use a device management infrastructure to manage apps and content isn’t any better. These systems have been architected to solve a different problem: to lock down and wipe the device itself. Using an app catalog via device management in a BYOD setting requires you take control of the employee’s device. And even then, you lack true app management capabilities. Managing the full lifecycle of mobile apps and content at scale requires a lot more than an app catalog.

Apperian provides the industry’s best win-win mobile management platform –where corporate data is protected on employee-owned devices with a truly seamless experience for both users and IT. Our platform was purpose-built to manage apps at scale. We continually receive top grades from IT pro’s and industry analysts because of our ability to help you to protect and manage what matters most –business apps and content– without requiring SDK’s or containers, and while virtually eliminating the complexity of ongoing management.

Business Executives

You have an amazing opportunity through smartphones and tablets to enable your teams, colleagues and partners. Across a limitless range of business functions, mobile apps and content can make people more productive and change the way they get work done. Don’t just think about “remote” or “mobile” people. Nearly everyone is already carrying a smart device and will benefit from instant access to key content or business critical data.

The challenge of identifying and sourcing mobile business apps is only the first step. Getting them securely into the hands of the workers who need them poses a real challenge to many organizations. But that’s where we shine.

Some IT organizations make the common mistake of using “device management” tools to distribute their apps. These systems were architected to lock down and manage devices themselves – not to handle the complexities of individual apps and content. Your users will reject this intrusive and cumbersome approach, and in most BYOD settings device management is a nonstarter. You want to choose a solution that doesn’t limit the adoption of the very apps intended to make people more productive.

Advances in mobile and cloud-hosted technologies have enabled business units like yours to ramp in days rather than months. Apperian allows you to take control with purpose-built solutions for distributing mobile business apps and content that can be activated today in an IT-friendly way. We mean it, most of our customers are up and running in a single day. Our user experience is second-to-none and will drive the highest possible levels of adoption. We guarantee it.

Commercial App Developers (ISVs)

Enterprises are mobile-enabling their workforces as the smartphone and tablet penetration nears 100% for most critical workers. Organizations are rapidly extending existing enterprise functions and content as well as rethinking processes through a new mobile lens. Increasingly enterprises will request custom or branded commercial apps as a way to speed their time to market while also tailoring to the organization. ISV’s able to respond will quickly gain share.

Unfortunately, no viable enterprise application distribution options have existed to help ISV’s easily deliver customized, configured, or branded versions of their apps to end customers – without imposing significant, and often insurmountable, overhead. Using public app stores forces a “one size fits all approach, and isn’t feasible for some ISV apps.” Working with “device management” infrastructure technology providers forces ISV’s to write specifically to closed platforms and forces their customers to deploy using mobile device management, or even dedicated servers or appliances. End-users often resist using these apps on these platforms because of the user-experience and cumbersome and intrusive technology required.

Apperian has changed the game for ISV’s. Our platform was purpose-built to manage mobile apps and content in the enterprise. We require neither source code modification, nor an SDK, yet enable you, the ISV, to deliver customized and branded apps for every one of your enterprise accounts. Your customers will be thrilled because they will receive the apps they want in a completely manageable way.

Learn how Apperian helps ISV’s with enterprise application distribution:

  • Customize, configure and private brand apps for customers to differentiate your software
  • Streamline your app distribution experience for easier and faster customer onboarding
  • Focus on innovating core app functionality and leverage Apperian’s best in class application management capabilities for ISVs
  • Manage enterprise signing of apps automatically and in a protected way
  • More easily deliver app updates and fixes

Enterprise App Developers

Mobile is red-hot. There is a lot of demand to get cool, helpful apps in the hands of workers. You’ve got a huge opportunity to transform how your colleagues get their work done, and learning to apply new languages and technologies, such as Objective-C and Java, is always fun. But as the person chartered with enterprise application development for your company, you know that getting them built is just half of the challenge.

Traditional processes for getting applications distributed in the company just don’t work for mobile. With end-users expecting things to go as smoothly as they do in consumer app stores, they can get turned off pretty quickly when accessing enterprise apps doesn’t work that way. Building the best app in the world is pointless if it’s not used.

This is where Apperian helps you with enterprise application development. You focus on creating killer apps. We’ll help get them distributed in a structured and easily manageable way – at scale. We organize and distribute your apps in a familiar, consumer-like and company-branded app store. Behind that is the industry’s leading app management platform that handles everything you need to manage the complete lifecycle of the app. We’ll handle app onboarding, signing, inspection, security and policy wrapping, app updates, app delete, usage metrics, and more. No source code modification, no containers, no SDK’s, and no device management required. Just a purpose-built app management platform built by app developers for app developers.

End-users will love you for using us. And we know you will too.

IT Executives

The mobile industry is evolving quickly and forcing IT leaders to rethink mobile management solutions to leverage new technology. Each day there are new devices, new versions of operating systems, new apps, and new daily updates. Users are passionate about their devices, want to use them to be more productive, and are bringing them to work in droves expecting IT support to access corporate assets.

As an IT executive, you have an opportunity to transform your company. Providing access to apps and enterprise content can fundamentally change how and where people get their jobs done. You can now drive these innovations, while ensuring that corporate IP is protected. Yet, BYOD policies will make this particularly challenging.

You could go the containerization route, but that has proven to be an awful user experience for accessing and using apps. Adoption rates will inevitably suffer. Trying to use a device management infrastructure to manage apps and content isn’t any better. These systems have been architected to solve a different problem: to lock down and wipe the device itself.
