Sybase, a provider of enterprise and mobile software, has announced it is powering the Software as a Service (SaaS) device management solution from MobiDM, European specialists in mobile technology.
The mobile device management and security service, powered by Sybase Afaria and SQL Anywhere, enables users to centrally install, secure and maintain mobile devices. The self service management solution is simple to use, making mobile security and device management more accessible for businesses of all sizes.
MobiDM leverages leading technology from Sybase for its web-based console that automatically manages routine system management tasks across all major mobile operating systems. As a ready to go SaaS device management solution, it eliminates the need to install server infrastructure thereby accelerating implementation timelines and reducing the cost of mobile deployments.
“The beauty of MobiDM is that it’s a user friendly portal into Afaria®, which is widely regarded as the leading device management solution. Not only can a business be up and running in as little as 15 minutes regardless of its size, but it can easily scale its mobility strategy as it develops,” said Alex Bausch, founder and director of MobiDM.
“Despite the continued growth of the mobile workforce, a tough economic climate has forced many large enterprises to limit investment in mobile projects. The low total cost of ownership of SaaS applications, such as MobiDM, address these very issues.”
Bausch continued: “Sybase’s experience, innovative technology, non-intrusive interface and commitment to hosted multiplatform products coupled with an aligned vision for the future made the company an obvious choice. The success we have seen following Vodafone’s deployment of MobiDM in December 2008 has clearly defined the successful relationship.”
Said Nigel Doust, VP of EMEA Sales, Sybase iAnywhere, said: “The straightforward nature of MobiDM means that it’s an equally ideal tool for SMEs and enterprises alike. By using Afaria’s comprehensive management capabilities, MobiDM simplifies multiple device management and complex security needs, whether a business has 50 or 5000 devices. Its ease of use and clear return on investment mean that MobiDM has a huge impact on the way that companies are approaching mobile device management. It is this influence and potential that makes them such a valued partner.”
MobiDM was recognised by Sybase during its ninth Annual Innovator Awards, following the company’s innovative implementation of Sybase’s technology. The Sybase Innovator Awards are presented to select customers and partners who have used Sybase technology to create cutting edge applications and success for their organisations.
