Enterprises are entering the next generation of remote access, productivity, and connectivity by offering access to corporate data and applications on personally purchased mobile devices. While most enterprise applications are available from anywhere today using a browser on a laptop, the poor experience of mobile browsers and security holes leveraged by rouge applications has curbed the adoption of the same applications on mobile devices.
Consumerization of the Enterprise
The explosion of native applications for B2C web apps like Kayak and Amazon has proven that native applications increase usability, experience, and productivity for consumers. Furthermore, the same consumers are employees who demand their enterprise employers support and offer remote access to work-related applications as native apps. These same employees also want work-related native apps on their personally purchased Apple, Android, Blackberry, and Windows mobile devices.
Demand for a Secure Mobile Access Solution
To help management and employees become more productive, enterprise CIOs, IT and developers are looking for a comprehensive mobile solution. This mobile solution needs to secure and isolate corporate data on personal devices, enable native app-based access to enterprise applications, provide offline synchronization capabilities, and most importantly, give IT full control of company data and access rights to corporate data but not necessarily to the employee’s personal mobile device!
Enter Bitzer Mobile
Bitzer provides a platform that allows IT personnel to mobilize existing enterprise applications very rapidly. They can do that securely by consolidating all enterprise data inside a secure container that is completely under their control. Once they mobilize an application the user can interact with it from an iOS, Android or Blackberry device. IT does not have to worry about supporting multiple evolving platforms or creating custom mobile applications.
