Mobile Application Management Company Provides Leading Native User Experience to Drive Engagement and Adoption

BOSTON – March 4, 2015 – Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management (MAM®) company, today announced support for the latest Android operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop, as well as a redesigned enterprise app store for Android users. Two thirds of devices used in the enterprise this year are expected to be running the Android operating system. Enterprise support for Android can no longer take a backseat to iOS, and Apperian offers the most robust support available, boasting a native user experience that drives user engagement and app adoption. “Android 5.0 devices are already being shipped and enterprises should be confident in their ability to support this new operating system as it comes into the enterprise,” said Alan Murray, Senior Vice President of Products at Apperian. “We’ve invested heavily to provide the industry’s number one and best possible experience for Android and understand the importance of supporting all workers, across all of the operating systems they use. We did it on iOS, we did it on Android, and we’re doing it on Windows.” As BYOD continues to grow and users make the choice to go to Android 5.0 and other upgraded operating systems on their own, IT must be prepared to offer a superior and native user experience to drive the adoption of mobile apps. Specifically, Apperian gives enterprise customers the ability to provide all their Android, as well as iOS, users with the best Enterprise App Store experience, with features such as complete branding control for enterprise app stores, a native experience for end users, and rock-solid security and IT management capabilities that don’t require the mobile device management (MDM) approach. “Enterprise mobility strategies focused on MDM can't easily stop users from upgrading to a new mobile operating system, which is often as soon as it's released – well before IT is ready,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Enterprise Mobility at 451 Research. “Android 5.0 is here, and if IT isn’t providing a great user experience for Lollipop or other mobile OSs, engagement levels for enterprise mobile apps will suffer. Being able to provide a rich, consistent, and intuitive native experience is key to maintaining and increasing user adoption.” Apperian’s best-in-class platform for managing the full mobile app lifecycle, and now Android 5.0 support, allows enterprises to drive the highest possible levels of adoption and ROI for enterprise mobile apps.
