22 Android Apps for Meeting Success

One of the great ironies of mobile computing is that when all is said and done, IT organizations might wind up having an easier time of managing the application environment than ever before.

Looking to help IT organizations get to that point, Hewlett-Packard today unveiled the HP Access Catalog, a software as a service (SaaS) application through which IT organizations can provide end users with access to mobile and desktop applications along with other forms of digital content.

viz20140213-01Tim Rochte, director of product management for HP Software Web Services, says that at this juncture, many IT organizations are looking for more of a turnkey approach to managing applications in a world where users now have access to a broad array of devices. Thanks to the rise of the bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon, IT organizations don’t have as much control over the actual devices. But the one thing they can control is the corporate applications that they make available to end users.

Of course, end users can still load their own applications, but the HP Access Catalog does provide a mechanism through which IT organizations can deliver applications that have been vetted and approved. Once made available via the HP Access Catalog, end users can then self-service their own application downloads.

Naturally, IT can opt to build its own application store, too. But as a SaaS application, the HP Access Catalog is already open for business; it just needs somebody willing to mind the application store.
