Exclusive Networks Group has outlined its Mobile Enterprise Eco-System initiative. Fuelled by the Consumerisation of IT (CoIT) and user driven trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Bring Your Own App (BYOA), enterprise IT departments are drowning in a tsunami of smart devices and apps entering the corporate infrastructure. Enabling IT to embrace these trends and thereby leverage the productivity, collaboration and user buy-in benefits promised, represents a clear and present revenue opportunity for reseller organisations.
According to global research company MarketsandMarkets, the worldwide Enterprise Mobility market is set to triple from $67.21 billion in 2012 to $181.39 billion by 2017.
For resellers, the Mobile Enterprise Eco-System delivers education and practical answers to the clear market opportunities that exist. Moreover, by gathering together and integrating technologies and vendors with distinct best-of-breed capabilities, and enabling valuable professional/managed services opportunities, it represents the most coherent enterprise-grade approach to solving the challenges of 'consumerised' business user devices and behaviour.
"Enterprise Mobility is at the very top of most enterprise agendas today and is presenting IT departments with a huge headache," commented Barrie Desmond, Director of Marketing & Global Accounts, Exclusive Networks Group. "We want to tool up resellers with end-to-end solutions that give IT teams the visibility, control, management, and compliance of devices, apps and access methods to assure the mobile experience in a secure environment. We believe this will help them differentiate themselves in the market and lead to new revenue streams."
Desmond continued, "We've now entered a new era of IT whereby the user is driving and dictating the computing platforms, devices and apps they want to use, and this represents an enormous challenge to IT departments. The 'Age of HumanITy' has arrived! Enabling IT departments to embrace this cultural change and harness the proclaimed benefits it delivers is a massive opportunity for resellers. We are committed to helping them exploit this opportunity."
By integrating an array of technologies within the Exclusive Networks Group portfolio, resellers are able to take to market an end-to-end enterprise mobility solution that includes device and app management and control, device and information security and network access and performance optimisation. The Mobile Enterprise Eco-System portfolio includes technologies from a select number of disruptive and innovative vendors that include Aerohive Networks, Aruba Networks, Exinda, Fortinet, Palo Alto Networks, MobileIron, and LogRhythm.
