AirWatch recently announced their participation in the App Config for Enterprise (ACE) initiative, and we were happy to support the initial launch for one essential reason: it makes it "sesame street simple" to deliver Lua as part of your AirWatch deployment. Gone are the days of convincing your ISV to do a complicated 'app wrapping' and the frustrating bugs that accompany it. With ACE, Lua can focus on delivering value and leave the heavy lifting of EMM to AirWatch.
Here at AirWatch Connect 2015, Courtney Sowerby posed the question to her customer panel "beyond the basic email, calendaring, and contacts, what are the ‘carrots’ you’re offering your employees in terms of meaningful productivity?" The first answer was ‘Secure Messaging,’ and for good reason: 90% of smartphone use is messaging related. Furthermore, 65% of users cite using texting for business purposes. There’s an inherent reason we send texts instead of emails: it’s faster, easier, and as a result it makes us more productive.
It’s pretty easy to see how messaging is a key consideration when deploying an EMM strategy. With AirWatch as your management and security foundation, messaging can drive productivity across your entire staff. Whether that’s a nurse sending PHI to a physician, a retail staff sharing insights across locations, or a global logistics network coordinating issues as they arise…messaging enables a truly mobile, real-time workflow.
With ACE and its ecosystem of mobile solutions, deploying an EMM strategy that makes employees more productive just became a whole lot easier!
