BT, one of the world’s leading providers of communications solutions and services, has deployed BT Mobile Application Management powered by Apperian. This new solution comes as a key part of BT’s Enterprise Mobility Portfolio to coincide with the launch of its BYOD campaign – Beyond Your Device.
With Apperian, BT intends to support its enterprise customers in their pursuit of transformation through mobility, by providing them with capabilities to deploy enterprise applications on corporate or employee-owned mobile devices through a familiar consumer style app store experience.
The solution lets enterprises authenticate, secure, manage and deploy mobile apps through an easy-to-use portal. As a result, employees are able to easily find and access mobile apps through private and enterprise branded app stores.
By integrating with enterprise security authentication systems, the BT solution is designed to ensure that only the right apps are offered to the right employees. The solution also protects and manages mobile apps and data without installing intrusive technology on users’ devices.
“BYOD is changing the enterprise mobility landscape,” said Jonathan Brasnett, Head of Global Mobility Capability, BT Global Services. “Demand for enterprise apps is growing. By adding mobile application management from Apperian into our portfolio, we can help our customers take full advantage of the benefits that mobile apps can provide to workers. This solution helps our customers securely manage mobility at the app level and eliminate complexity and the need for additional infrastructure.”

MAKO Surgical Corporation has deployed BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 to manage its mobile investments. The company cited two reasons for the decision: the solution offers the highest level of control required to handle all the mobile data requirements and security issues unique to the medical device manufacturing environment.
“MAKO Surgical Corp. is committed to the new BlackBerry 10 platform and we’re very impressed with the unique enterprise benefits the platform brings to our organization,” said Ernie Wittyngham, Senior Director of Information Technology, MAKO Surgical. “Having secure and reliable support provided by BlackBerry makes sense as BlackBerry is a trusted partner and has been for a long time.”
Founded in 2004, MAKO Surgical Corp. is an innovative medical device company that markets both its RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System and proprietary RESTORIS family of implants to surgeons for a procedure called MAKOplasty knee resurfacing and total hip arthroplasty.
“Technology is moving fast, and we needed a solution that could manage our complex fleet of devices and operating systems through a single platform and management console. We’re confident that our investment in BlackBerry 10 is the best technical solution for our mobile workforce,” Wittyngham said.
