To provide its customers enhanced solutions and strategic support for their enterprise mobility strategies, Dell Services is partnering with Apperian, Inc. and Kony, Inc., for development, deployment and management of mobility applications.
The Apperian and Kony offerings are available through Dell’s Business Innovation Services portfolio—providing digital solutions to users in the form of Mobility, Social Media, Cloud and Analytics.
“Mobility is extremely strategic and critical to our customers who are looking to enhance their business outcomes. By pairing up with these companies we will be able to offer our customers more choice and further help them create and manage applications that adhere to the policy and process requirements of their organizations, yet answer the unique demands of the mobile worker,” said Raman Sapra, Global Head of Business Innovation Services, Dell.
Apperian and MADP
Apperian’s mobile application development platform (MADP) allows enterprises to secure, deploy and manage mobile apps through an easy-to-use console, permitting employees to access mobile apps through enterprise-branded “app stores,” whether on their corporate-owned or personal device (BYOD)—this allows Dell to introduce mobile apps leveraging Apperian’s intuitive user experience, ensuring the highest level of user adoption and return on investment.
“We have seen first-hand how mobility drives better performance—reacting more quickly, collaborating seamlessly and getting more work done in more places. However, how these companies decide to embrace mobility can be the difference between growth and falling behind more agile competitors. Providing the necessary tools to solve challenges from the endpoint to the backend infrastructure is key to Dell’s strategy of helping our customers achieve long-term business growth and transformation,” said Suresh Vaswani, President of Services, Dell.
The Kony Experience
Dell will deliver mobile apps based on the Kony Experience Platform: an end-to-end, integrated, cloud-based platform to support an app software development lifecycle (SDLC) that empowers enterprises to quickly define, design, build, test, deploy and manage multi-channel app experiences.
The solution reduces app development costs with an open and standards-based platform with integrated design and development tools, cloud services and collaboration and an extensive library of APIs spanning UI/UX, device and utility features.
Developers can build native, hybrid and web apps for phones, tablets and desktops with a single-code base and rapidly deploy to the cloud. Dell will work with Kony to develop and deliver business-critical enterprise and consumer-facing apps that integrate easily with customers’ backend systems and align consistently with app user experiences across any digital channel.
