Mformation Signs Agreement with HP to Promote Mobile Device Management Solutions1
Mformation Technologies, an independent provider of mobile device management (MDM) solutions, announced that it has expanded its relationship with HP. Mformation is now HP’s preferred MDM solution provider.
The expanded cooperation between Mformation and HP covers the needs of mobile operators and enterprises for the management of mobile devices and services. Mformation’s product expertise in the MDM category, combined with HP’s global reach and scale, customer relationships and consulting knowledge, delivers the breadth and depth needed by the most demanding customers around the world.
The HP cloud-based solution for enterprise MDM (HP Cloud Services Enablement for Device Management as a Service, Sept 2010) is the most recent example of how the two companies are cooperating to bring new capabilities to market. This broadened relationship allows Mformation and HP to expand their MDM solution set for both cloud-based and in-network deployments, targeting both service providers and enterprises. The two companies plan to promote solution offerings worldwide, leveraging successful deployments in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Mformation and HP will address opportunities in high-growth markets such as the Americas and Asia-Pacific.
"Traditional client management tools can’t manage the unwired world," said Ed Forker, VP, Worldwide Sales and Services. "Whether the data resides on the device or in the cloud, Mformation has unique and patented capabilities to securely manage all classes of wireless devices. We are thrilled to partner with HP around these expanded solutions and global market opportunities." "Mobile operators and enterprises can manage devices using the combined capabilities of HP and Mformation," said Nigel Upton, director, Communications and Media Solutions, HP. "Building on our long track record of success, HP and Mformation can now offer the products, the integration expertise and the customer relationships to address a broader global market." The market is exploding - over three billion smartphones and connected computing devices will ship in the next four years. These devices all require more advanced management.
