There are lots of rapid changes in the mobile app industry, never seen before. New trends in the industry are expected to replace wallets, monitor our health, control our cars and home and support several functions of our lives that were not possible with older technology. Rapid innovation in sensors, wearables, bluetooth, mobile payments and IoT has allowed mobile apps to become more advanced, impacting the lives and thoughts of consumers, small businesses, enterprises and government.
Mobile apps have emerged as a prominent business driver and are used across many businesses and industries. Using the apps in BYOD environments is on the rise. In today’s business environment, there is no escaping from the BYOD trend, which holds huge potential. When fueled by mobile apps it can transform business, enable agility and encourage innovative ways of interacting with customers and business partners.
What organizations need is an overall solution for the management of BYOD and that solution is Apperian, the leading enterprise-class mobile application management and security platform for the delivery of critical apps to 100% of users across an organization.
Apperian provides fine-grained security and dynamic policy controls at the individual app level for deployments where mobile device management approaches are not possible or desired, such as BYOD, contract workers and other unmanaged devices.
Being on the ‘Winning Line’ of the Competition
Most organizations today are seeking greater business efficiency through mobile BYOD programs. On the other hand, BYOD has created challenges in balancing security and enabling workers with mobile information, whether in the office or on the go. The Apperian Mobile Application Management and Security platform solves this through helping companies secure, manage and deploy mobile applications to 100% of employees, including BYOD and extended enterprise users (partners, contractors, dealer networks).
Unlike traditional EMM and MDM platforms, Apperian takes an app-level (versus device-level) approach to security and management. End users are not required to enroll devices in a device management platform, which means the organization only secures and manages what matters most – the apps and data – and does not have control or visibility into users’ personal information or device. Apperian is the only enterprise mobility vendor that offers this and is the reason both Fortune 500 and SMB organizations turn to Apperian to fuel their mobile and BYOD strategies, making them stand on the winning line of the competition.
Apperian’s platform offers significantly reduced time and app management costs, while also, increasing mobile app security,quality higher levels of app adoption and ROI for customers achieved through the industry’s #1 private enterprise app stores, dynamic app policy engine, automated app signing server and universal app distribution capabilities.

The emerging millennial workforce will also boast the highest percentage of smartphone ownership, a trend that will change how and where we work for years to come.”
Brian’s Valuable Guidelines for Startups
Brian gives valuable guidelines for startups:
“Get out of the office and in front of customers. Getting close to and learning from customers, understanding their goals, and working with them to solve real challenges is hugely important for product development. Many technology startups today follow an agile methodology and having close customer collaboration can make the development process extremely impactful. Your customers, and their network, are also the best market research and marketing channels. This must be number one for every startup.”
