The 2013 Mobile Application Management Challenge

Round 1: The 2013 Mobile Application Management Challenge

The Mobile Application Management Challenge

Mobility has become the norm within enterprises, and mobile apps are the key to increasing productivity and opening new opportunities. This trend is great for the enterprise as a whole, but it presents new challenges to IT. How do you manage this revolution? What is the best way to protect the data in the apps and keep prying eyes from seeing how your new apps are transforming your business? Apps can be gotten from app stores, developed by IT and even created by people in your business units and in the field.

How do you minimize the chaos and control the risk that proliferation of apps can create?

A new category of solutions for the enterprise has recently emerged called Mobile Application Management (MAM). MAM provides a way for enterprises to gain control over mobile apps and protect valuable corporate data. It addresses the entire life-cycle of an app, from adding management and security to deploying, updating and retiring an app. It is a must-have solution for any enterprise.

But how do you know which MAM solution is right for your enterprise? Who has the solution that will allow you to gain control of your mobile app environment? I have brought together four of the top MAM vendors to help you answer that question. Specifically, AirWatch, Apperian, Good Technology and Symantec have come together in this year’s MAM Challenge to shed light on how their solutions solve the app management puzzle. They explain what makes their solution the right one for your enterprise in a handy guide you can download.
