Another entry into the “as a service” (aaS) platform market comes from Dimension Data. The company launched an enterprise mobility-as-a-service (EMaaS) solution, which provides organizations with the ability to deliver comprehensive policy-based, device-independent, mobile device management, mobile expense management, and integration to the enterprise underpinned by the cloud principles of automation and consumption-based commercials.
The service, which utilizes a cloud-based consumption model, enables companies to rapidly scale deployments while easily managing the complex environment of mobile devices, data access and expense management.
Dimenson Data also offers systems integration and professional services to address the complex nature of mobility deployments. Ettienne Reinecke, Dimension Data’s Group CTO and Group Executive, End-user Computing, said, “EMaaS was designed to address an immediate requirement of enterprise clients around mobile devices, smart devices and how to ensure these new devices can be incorporated into their business in a rapid, yet controlled and secure way.”
