Businesses can now use EASE to deploy and manage mobile business applications for iOS and Android

Boston, MA, November 15, 2011 – Apperian (, a company that empowers businesses to create, deploy and manage mobile applications, today announced the release of EASE for Android. Having played a pivotal role in helping companies solve the problems of enterprise mobility, Apperian has applied that knowledge in developing EASE for Android. The company has worked closely with partners, developers and customers on its most recent release for the burgeoning Android market. The EASE platform is used by businesses of all sizes, including Fortune 1000 firms in the pharmaceutical, retail and consumer goods industries, to create, deploy and manage mobile applications. With the rise of bring your own device (BYOD) polices in companies, Apperian customers are empowering their employees and improving their satisfaction by allowing them to use their own mobile devices, without fear of their private data being seen or deleted by the employer. Apperian customers have used EASE to roll out and manage a variety of mobile applications, including those that help pharmaceutical companies provide doctors with access to the latest information about life saving drugs, provide just-­‐in-­‐time reports to remote sales teams, and help women choose the latest in cosmetics at the most popular makeup counters in the world. With the release of its Android product, Apperian has expanded its EASE platform to support millions of devices across the world. Businesses can now manage the entire mobile lifecycle for Android mobile applications with the rich user experience they have come to expect from Apperian. EASE addresses the management of the fragmented Android landscape, which includes multiple smartphone and tablet models and various versions of the operating system. “Android has seen greater than 10-­‐times growth in enterprise adoption in the last two years,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless for The 451 Group. “According to our ChangeWave Research division, 31% of US companies are now reporting that a portion of their employees are using Android-­‐powered smartphones. We see this growth continuing, which means that companies need enterprise-­‐grade, cross-­‐platform mobile application management solutions. Having a private-­‐branded corporate mobile app storefront for all smartphone and mobile tablet platforms is necessary to ensure the success of a company's mobile strategy.” “EASE eliminates the complications faced by businesses looking to make both iOS and Android devices an integral part of the workplace,” said David Patrick, Apperian CEO. Key features of EASE for Android include:
  • A private branded app catalog that gives employees easy access to authorized applications, including in-­‐house apps, Android Market apps, and HTML5 web apps
  • Over-­‐the-­‐air delivery of single or multiple applications to user devices enabling deployment to thousands of users in minutes, with automated push notification of new apps and updates
  • Secure delivery of content, including rich media, PDF files, and Microsoft Office documents, including word processing files and spreadsheets
  • Administrative control to add, update and remove in-­‐house apps and profiles, authorize users and groups, and see the status of all users and detailed app usage
