Kony Brings Order from Chaos in Mobile Enterprise Application Development
Kony & Gartner Group Offer Insight into Solving “Bring-Your-Own-Device” IT Challenges via New Webinar
ORLANDO – Kony Solutions, the leading mobile enterprise application platform (MEAP) provider, today announced a new Kony-Gartner Group webinar addressing how IT organizations and business managers can deal with the widespread “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) phenomenon.
The new webinar will be offered Wed, Feb. 22 at 10 am, 1 pm and 4 pm ET. Registration details are available at: http://www.konysolutions.com.
“Companies of all sizes, educational institutions and government agencies are being inundated with requests from employees for access to corporate resources from an ever-widening array of mobile devices,” said Ken Dulaney, vice president and distinguished analyst for Gartner Group. “In our recent survey, over 60% of our clients said they either had or were planning a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policy.”
In this webinar, Gartner will explain the BYOD trend and why it’s inevitable, as well as look at the challenges and outlook for BYOD. Kony will demonstrate its approach for addressing BYOD concerns with a single unified platform for building, deploying and managing enterprise applications across the full range of devices – including smartphones, tablets, feature phones and more – that employees are bringing into organizations.
Participants in the webinar will:
- Learn how to design rich, compelling mobile applications that can be deployed across all mobile devices
- Understand how to create and support an Enterprise App Store and Mobile Application Management for their BYOD solution
- See a demo of mobile application development and deployment spanning both employee and consumer user communities
Kony’s flagship product is its KonyOne mobile enterprise application platform, which supports both business to consumer (B2C) and business to employee (B2E) applications; Kony’s “Write Once, Run Everywhere” technology enables developers to deploy their apps across more than 9,000 mobile smartphones/tablets/kiosks and operating systems from a single codebase. Changes and upgrades can then be handled rapidly, without the need for rebuilding or republishing the mobile apps.
“Our platform allows IT departments to implement a secure, scalable, flexible and manageable BYOD strategy, and bring much–needed order out of the current mobile chaos,” said Sam Lakkundi, vice president of Strategy, Kony Solutions. “We have the broadest, deepest, most future-proof platform on the market, and the only platform with complete support for both B2C and B2E implementations from a single codebase.”
All Kony applications can be delivered in native and mobile web (HTML5 and non-HTML5) and Kony is the only vendor to offer Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for support of new operating systems, form factors, and devices, thereby enabling enterprises to stay ahead of the mobile technology curve.
