AT&T Mobile Application Management Powered by Apperian® Simplifies Delivery of AppsDALLAS, Jan. 9, 2012 — Mobile apps designed to drive productivity for businesses are cropping up all over the workplace. It’s no surprise – with the number of enterprise smartphone users expected to reach 285 million worldwide this year1, employees are well equipped for the mobile app revolution. But it’s often a challenge for companies to deliver applications to dozens, hundreds or even thousands of workers with different job functions and various types of devices. That’s where a new mobility solution from AT&T* can help. Available today, AT&T Mobile Application Management powered by Apperian gives businesses the tools they need to distribute, manage, analyze and help secure applications. And for employees, the cloud-based service includes a customized enterprise app store, making it easy to download the latest mobile applications to their smartphones or tablets.

Always on the cutting edge of technology, the IT department developed several mobile applications to boost productivity. This global business also decided to implement a “bring your own device” policy to support employees’ desire for flexibility and offer mobile applications to a wide personnel base.
