Cisco has introduced AppHQ, an application ecosystem built specifically for its Cius tablet that provides new ways to create, manage and rapidly deploy tablet applications in the enterprise.
Cisco says Cius, an Android-based tablet created for the enterprise, combines voice, video, collaboration, and virtualisation capabilities unlike any other tablet on the market today. With Cisco Cius, organisations can now deliver an optimised tablet with enterprise-grade security, as a natural extension of the enterprise network. The device provides customers with mobility, centralised manageability, virtual content creation and computing capabilities, and a suite of collaboration applications.
AppHQ provides developers with tools and resources to create, test and market applications for Cisco Cius, and allows IT managers to control which applications can be used on the devices. Additionally, companies can create private, custom-branded application storefronts for their organisations where employees can find, publish and procure applications that complement their business environments.
