February 27th, 2014 By: John Rath
CA Technologies (CA) has introduced a comprehensive Management Cloud for Mobility. Delivered as a cloud service, the new offering consists of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) to manage and secure mobile devices, applications and content; Mobile DevOps to accelerate application development and deployment; and Enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) to enable the adoption of internet-connected devices.
“The explosion of new devices, applications, content and transactions in the mobile environment has opened new challenges for enterprises of all sizes, worldwide. The CA Management Cloud for Mobility will help enterprises transform the challenges of the new mobile economy into significant opportunity,” said Ram Varadarajan, general manager, New Business Innovation, CA Technologies. “With solutions that power innovation, drive productivity and accelerate the development of new mobile applications and offerings, CA is extending its leadership in IT management to help businesses capitalize on the next technological and business shift – mobility.”
Enhanced Mobile Experience
The EMM suite addresses the management and security for four areas – devices, applications, content and email. Working across multiple development tools, languages and methodologies, Mobile DevOps makes it easier to build and test API-based mobile applications, and gain insights into performance, user experience, crash and log analytics, and automate and support these mobile applications when deployed onto millions of devices. Four new products are available within the Mobile DevOps suite.
“The growth of mobile devices and apps in the enterprise is blurring the lines between personal and corporate data and leading to new challenges for enterprises,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless, 451 Research. “The EMM space is evolving as companies are looking for more complete offerings that support customers and productive mobile employees. Secure container technologies must provide enterprise scalability and comprehensive security across app development, delivery and support, all while preserving the familiar native look and feel of nearly any mobile device an employee chooses to carry.”
