HP launches new partner ecosystem to fuel enterprise app development
HP is rolling out a new partner ecosystem that will leverage each company's respective strengths to help businesses build and integrate end-to-end mobile solutions that bridge the gap between consumer and enterprise experiences.
"Applications are increasingly becoming the face of an organization, particularly as mobile applications become one of the most significant opportunities and threats to an organization's customer experience strategy. There is no room for error when interacting with existing or recruiting new customers," said Katherine Garcia, HP's senior vice president for applications and business services. "HP understands this and through the ecosystem we are helping our clients improve their customers' experience by bringing key agencies across different industries together to offer a one-stop-shop for designing, developing and deploying applications."
HP is kicking off the initiative in tandem with five partners: customer experience solutions provider Critical Mass, digital engagement services firm Cynergy, digital marketers DigitasLBi and Organic and mobile application development vendor projekt202.
This spring, HP launched a cloud-based enterprise mobility management platform for data, applications and devices. HP Enterprise Cloud Service-Mobility provides separation of enterprise apps and data from personal apps and data, as well as security and control of file storage, synchronization and sharing from the cloud across multiple mobile operating systems and devices.
With the platform, employees can download approved enterprise apps from a secure app storefront, upload files for collaboration and synchronize those files between the HP cloud infrastructure and mobile devices. Data is encrypted in transit and at rest. The platform provides IT with the ability to configure cloud file storage that can scale and offers local storage options that address data sovereignty and compliance requirements. It is integrated with Citrix, SAP and other enterprise platforms.
