SUNNYVALE, Calif. and COLUMBIA, Md., Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Technology™, the leader in secure enterprise mobility, and BoxTone®, the innovator of automated Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), announced a strategic partnership to deliver the industry's only complete EMM solution today, and innovate new critical mobile device and application management capabilities to meet the rapidly-evolving needs of IT and lines of business leaders.
IT organizations now recognize that standalone mobile device management ("MDM") simply does not meet the demands of a fully-mobilized enterprise. In response, commodity MDM vendors are scrambling to bolt-on new mobile app security, containerization and perhaps service management features – core capabilities that Good and BoxTone have made industry standards for years. Thousands of organizations worldwide, including half of the FORTUNE 100, trust Good Technology and BoxTone to safely, efficiently and reliably scale their mobile enterprises.
In fact, in recognition of the growing need enterprises have to manage both mobile devices and mobile applications, IDC has decided to merge two previously distinct markets —mobile device management enterprise software and mobile application management software — into a new market called mobile enterprise management (MEM) software. According to Nick McQuire, IDC Research Director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies, "More and more companies are recognizing that they need to take a strategic approach to enterprise mobility, moving beyond standalone MDM or MAM to an integrated solution. A deeper relationship between Good Technology and BoxTone will certainly help customers take a more comprehensive and analytical approach to managing and securing their mobile lifecycle across users, devices, applications and platforms."
Now these two mobile enterprise veterans are partnering to deliver the four critical capabilities of the mobile lifecycle: mobile security, mobile device and application management, mobile analytics and mobile service management. Through this complete EMM solution, enterprises and government agencies worldwide can confidently transition to mobile-first organizations to increase employee productivity, improve customer service and create new sources of revenue.
"Mobile enterprise environments are increasingly complex with a diverse mix of BYO and company-owned smartphones and tablets, multiple mobile OS platforms, and more business and productivity apps than ever before. Companies looking to harness the full power of mobility to boost employee productivity, increase competitiveness, and better serve their customers need a secure, reliable, and easy to use platform to manage the entire mobile lifecycle – across all users, apps and devices," said John Herrema, Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy, Good Technology. "We're excited to work with BoxTone to provide the enterprise marketplace with comprehensive service management, sophisticated analytics, and unified reporting so they can enhance the health, ROI, and compliance of their mobility deployments."
Good Technology and BoxTone already enable enterprises to get more from their EMM investments by providing full visibility and control over enterprise mobile ecosystems. Bringing together the mobile app and data security technology found in Good Dynamics® and Good for Enterprise™ with BoxTone's mobile device, analytics and service management capabilities, global organizations now have a unified platform to efficiently secure, manage and monitor enterprise iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry smartphones and tablets and the apps that run on them. The strategic partnership will provide Good Technology customers with access to BoxTone's advanced mobile device management, mobile application management and mobile service management capabilities.
"Today's leading companies are realizing that enterprise mobility isn't just about connecting and configuring devices, or securing email alone. Rather, mobilizing their businesses and workforces requires a three-pronged approach: a technology solution that secures the device, apps, and data; a platform to deliver secure enterprise apps; and a full-lifecycle EMM platform to manage, monitor and support all users, apps and devices," said Brian C. Reed, Chief Marketing and Product Officer, BoxTone. "With more than a hundred joint customers already, our strategic partnership with Good will help more companies remove the barriers to mobilizing their enterprise safely, efficiently and reliably, laying the foundation for long-term mobile success."
Good Technology's secure email, collaboration and application solutions are already deeply integrated with BoxTone's sophisticated EMM platform with automated policy and configuration management, real-time monitoring, proactive alerting, and automated diagnostics -- all designed to get mobile users connected fast and keep them up, running, and productive 24/7 as the enterprise scales to 100 percent workforce mobilization. With the growing focus on business-critical applications, Good and BoxTone are also jointly developing more sophisticated mobile analytics and dashboards to provide enterprises with deep insight into the usage and performance of these mobile apps, enabling IT and app owners actionable insight to make better business decisions about their rapidly growing app portfolio.
To learn more, register for the live webinar, "BoxTone and Good Technology Partnership: A 2013 Mobility Gamechanger," on Wednesday, December 5th at 1PM ET/10 AM PT.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
