Lifecycle Management Solution for BT Enterprise Customers 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/13 --   Apperian, Inc., the
enterprise mobile application management (MAM) pioneer, today
announced that BT, one of the world's leading providers of
communications solutions and services, is launching BT Mobile
Application Management powered by Apperian. This new solution comes
as a key part of BT's Enterprise Mobility Portfolio to coincide with
the launch of its BYOD campaign -- Beyond Your Device. With Apperian,
BT intends to support its enterprise customers in their pursuit of
transformation through mobility, by providing them with capabilities
to deploy enterprise applications on corporate or employee-owned
mobile devices through a familiar consumer style app store
experience. 
BT Mobile Application Management lets enterprises authenticate,
secure, manage and deploy mobile apps through an easy-to-use portal.
As a result, employees are able to easily find and access mobile apps
through private and enterprise branded app stores. By integrating
with enterprise security authentication systems, the BT solution is
designed to ensure that only the right apps are offered to the right
employees, thus creating a more productive workforce. The solution
also protects and manages mobile apps and data without installing
intrusive technology on users' devices, making it suitable for both
corporate and employee-owned mobile devices. 
BT selected Apperian's award-winning enterprise mobile app management
(MAM) platform because of the breadth and depth of capabilities for
enabling enterprises to manage the complete lifecycle of corporate
mobile apps. Apperian also brings a strong track record empowering
global enterprises to protect and manage mobile apps and data without
requiring intrusive and excessive technology on users' devices. This
unique approach makes it easy for organizations to roll out their
mobile enterprise strategy with a seamless user experience, ensuring
the highest level of user adoption. Under the terms of the agreement,
BT will offer Mobile Application Management services from Apperian to
its customers worldwide. 
"BYOD is changing the enterprise mobility landscape," said Jonathan
Brasnett, head of global mobility capability at BT Global Services.
"Demand for enterprise apps is growing. By adding mobile application
management from Apperian into our portfolio, we can help our
customers take full advantage of the benefits that mobile apps can
provide to workers. This solution helps our customers securely manage
mobility at the app level and eliminate complexity and the need for
additional infrastructure." 
"Mobile app utilization in the enterprise continues to skyrocket and
organizations now need to be thinking about their mobile app strategy
and new ways to ensure adoption," said David Patrick, CEO at
Apperian. "Adding Apperian's solution to its Managed Mobility
portfolio complements BT's device management solutions by allowing
its enterprise customers to focus on managing the individual apps of
interest. It also helps them take full advantage of the potential
business opportunities that arise as a result of the growing trend of
enterprise mobile apps."
