HP has announced a mobility platform for communications service providers (CSPs) that enables them to help enterprise customers increase productivity by supporting employee use of smartphones and tablets.
The HP Enterprise Mobility platform enables enterprises to provide internal mobile applications (apps) to employees so they can access company data quickly, easily and securely on their personal mobile devices.
The core components of the HP Enterprise Mobility platform are:
- HP Enterprise Mobile App Store enables CSPs to help enterprises create, certify, distribute and manage ”mobilized” versions of company apps for employees. Hosted at the CSP site and managed for the enterprise, the HP Enterprise Mobile App Store provides employees an easy-to-use portal for downloading apps.
- HP Enterprise Mobility Gateway enables CSPs to help enterprise employees access the right enterprise data at the right time by connecting mobile applications with an enterprise’s back-end systems. Available on the customer premises and as a service from the CSP, the gateway enables developers to create data-rich apps that run effectively even when bandwidth is limited.
Service providers are at a point where they need an enterprise service delivery platform, not just a telco service delivery platform stated by Glen Ragoonanan, lead analyst, Infrastructure Solutions and SDP Strategies, Analysys Mason. It makes sense to work with a partner like HP that has both telco and IT heritage and can bring the two worlds together.
Based on the widely deployed HP Service Delivery Platform (SDP), the HP Enterprise Mobility platform features a flexible service-oriented architecture. CSPs can adapt the core HP components to suit specific, complex needs, and they can integrate other HP and third-party solutions to further enhance functionality.
CSPs must invent new business models to win in a 4G world stated by Yugan Sikri, product manager, Business Solutions, Communications Media and Entertainment, HP Enterprise Services. HP’s offering enables CSPs to generate new revenue by helping enterprises tap the productivity potential of smartphones and tablets used by employees.
In addition to offering mobility services to enterprises, CSPs can use the HP platform to manage mobility services for their own employees, including the development and distribution of new apps.
Designed for CSPs to offer to their enterprise clients, the HP Enterprise Mobility platform also will be sold directly to enterprises by HP, as an on-premises solution.
