What OS Continuity Across Platforms Means for Enterprises

App Management

The cross-pollination of mobile and desktop operating systems – from Windows Phones, to Android on the desktop, to Linux-based mobile OS -- is generating a broader range of choices for employees to use and for IT departments to manage. This multichannel, OS continuity environment has become the new norm. The continuing propagation of operating systems across the enterprise highlights the increasing demand for dynamic mobile support.

More than ever, corporate IT departments need to be able to support enterprise apps that run across the multiple operating systems and devices that employees continue to bring into the workplace. Increasingly, employees want to be able to use the same apps on their smartphones and tablets as they use on their desktop devices, whether this is Dropbox, LinkedIn, sales force automation, analytics, or other productivity tools.

On the surface, this creates additional complexity for IT to have to track, administer, and manage enterprise mobile apps and data being used on multiple device types and operating systems. A robust enterprise mobility management solution can simplify these requirements for IT, in part by securing the end-point of the app instead of the device since this allows for more granular control by IT while being less intrusive to users.

Enabling enterprise mobility starts with having the right mobile management platform that allows employees to access role-specific apps whenever and wherever they need them. Apperian is the trusted choice for administrators who are striving to enhance the end user experience while driving the highest levels of secure adoption.
