Chief IT Architect of Emory University and Emory Healthcare to Discuss Mobile App Management and the Emory Enterprise App Store

BOSTON – August 4, 2015 – Apperian® Inc., the mobile application management (MAM®) company, announced today that its customer, Stephen Wheat, Chief IT Architect at Emory University and Emory Healthcare, will be presenting at the Gartner Catalyst Conference. Mr. Wheat will share how Emory is leveraging mobile apps to improve the quality and reach of healthcare at Emory Healthcare, as well as meet mobility needs of students, faculty and staff at Emory University. Additionally, he will speak to the value of mobile app management and Emory’s use of enterprise app stores for driving app adoption. “In service-oriented organizations, such as healthcare and higher education, there is a growing demand for mobile tools,” said Stephen Wheat, Chief IT Architect at Emory University and Emory Healthcare. “Mobile app management has allowed us to get our apps out to every kind of device and user securely. It helps us stay focused on building impactful apps and driving adoption because it centralizes and simplifies app security and distribution. I look forward to sharing our experiences with other IT execs looking to empower their users with mobility.” As Gartner analysts Jason Wong and Monica Basso said in Gartner’s July 2015 report, ‘Hype Cycle for Enterprise Mobile Security, 2015,’ “Enterprise mobile app stores are useful for organizations with even just a handful of mobile apps – whether custom built, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) or publicly sourced – to support easy discovery and distribution of apps, as well as additional app security controls and analytics.” About Gartner Catalyst Conference:
