Gaming house Electronic Arts (EA) will discuss its work with mobile app management (MAM) vendor Apperian and mobile app development platform (MADP) provider Red Hat Mobile at a Red Hat event later this month.
The collaboration between Apperian and Red Hat Mobile aims to combine the two companies’ technologies, with app lifecycle management to support continuous development and greater security for deploying apps. The proposed solution will also utilise a privately branded enterprise app store for increased governance and agility.
“Many enterprises face challenges in building a continuous volume of cross-platform apps and getting them in the hands of authorised users in a secure way. They’re also looking to become more agile with development,” said Caleb Mills, VP of operations at Apperian. “By integrating app development and mobile app management on a single platform, Apperian and Red Hat are tackling these challenges to help provide better apps, higher levels of mobile security and greater reach of those apps for companies in all industries.
“Our top priority is to more securely distribute mobile apps to 100% of users, both inside and outside of an organisation,” he added.
The partnership also indicates a meeting of minds and a blending of technologies in enterprise mobility management (EMM). While analysts argue that end to end EMM requires MAM, MDM, MADP and so forth – and the major providers do, albeit in arguably more of a primitive form than specialists – this represents an interesting development of two providers in different areas coming together.
Apperian, Red Hat Mobile and EA, a joint customer of both companies, will appear at the Red Hat Summit on June 29 to discuss the collaboration.
