HP mobile app catalog empowers companies to deliver BYOD
The spread of BYOD means that employees increasingly expect a seamless experience, accessing content on the device of their choice.
With the launch of its new HP Access Catalog, HP lets enterprises create a secure app store so employees can instantly download applications and digital content across both mobile and desktop devices.
The software as a service catalog supports the Android and iOS platforms and is delivered by both native mobile clients and a web interface. By using open-standard technologies it offers a secure, cross-platform solution. HP Access Catalog gives companies increased productivity by simplifying the delivery and management of mobile applications and allowing employees a self-service experience.
"As organizations embrace mobility, they need a simple, secure and reliable mechanism to manage the delivery of apps to their employees", says Dragan Milanovich, vice president, Web Services, Software at HP. "The HP Access Catalog provides enterprises with a robust, flexible and easy-to-use solution, making it easier for users to be productive on their device of choice".
The catalog has a native identity management system or can be seamlessly integrated with existing enterprise identity systems so admins can ensure users get the right software for their role. It also allows IT departments to push updates to users and so make certain they have the latest apps and data, improving their productiveness without harming security.
HP Access Catalog will be available from HP and its channel partners in March, as a standalone product or as part of the HP Anywhere enterprise mobility platform. Pricing will be on a simple, per-user annual subscription model.
