ManageEngine Details 2013 Course to Mastery of Mobile App Usability, Device Management

Feb 26, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- ManageEngine, a real-time IT management company, announced the first phase of its mobile product roadmap for 2013.

According to a release, highlighted by the industry's first voice-enabled mobile apps for the help desk and deeply enhanced mobile device management (MDM) capabilities, this year's mobile roadmap enables IT organizations to both securely manage and leverage the industry's dominant mobile trends, including "bring your own device" (BYOD).

A 2012 Forrester Research report1 found that 54 percent of North American and European firms have deployed BYOD programs for smartphones and tablets. Moreover, Forrester claims that "mobile is the new face of engagement," predicting 200 million employees will bring their own devices into the enterprise by 2016.2 Related developments, such as "bring your own application" (BYOA), will further entrench mobile devices in the enterprise.

"Mobile gives enterprises - and enterprise IT organizations - the opportunity to truly operate 24x7, and we want to make that opportunity a reality for IT professionals," said Raj Sabhlok, president of Zoho, parent company of ManageEngine. "With that goal in sight, we're taking mobile enablement and mobile device management to the next level this year. We will be introducing breakthrough new voice functionality to improve productivity for IT staff. We'll be extending our BYOD feature set and introducing BYOA capabilities, so companies can accommodate those trends while maintaining their security." As mobile plays an increasingly dominant role in enterprise IT, ManageEngine continues to mobilize its product suite, improving IT professionals' ability to manage mobile devices - from behind a console and on the go. Throughout the year, the company will deliver a number of solutions to enhance mobile device management as well as mobile enablement, including: -ServiceDesk Plus and ServiceDesk Plus-MSP will gain iPhone apps that feature voice recognition technology, emerging as the industry's first help desk applications to feature voice-enabled mobile apps. The new iPhone apps will let IT professionals execute commands, dictate notes and make other extended text entries, promoting multi-tasking and reducing response times. Both ServiceDesk Plus and ServiceDesk Plus-MSP will also add iPad apps to their portfolios.

-Desktop Central will extend its MDM capabilities to ensure IT can maintain enterprise security standards while supporting BYOD and related trends. To that end, Desktop Central will get several BYOD enhancements as well as support for BYOA, near field communication (NFC), geo-fencing, Samsung device policies, mobile content management and the Windows 8 mobile operating system.

-Password Manager Pro will gain an iPhone app to make the company's enterprise password management software available to IT staff from their iPhones - at any time, from anywhere.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
