Flexera Software Extends Application Readiness Support of Apple iOS Mobile App Deployments via AdminStudio Suite Integration with AirWatch

Enhancement facilitates Application Readiness best practice processes for all application types including physical, virtual and mobile

Schaumburg, IL - Dec 12, 2013 - Application Usage Management provider, Flexera Software, today announced that AdminStudio Suite, the market-leading Application Readiness solution, now supports AirWatch mobile device management solution, further enabling mobile app deployment within the enterprise. Now organizations that have implemented AdminStudio Mobile Pack, which enables centralized management of mobile apps, can automatically deploy Apple iOS enterprise applications via AirWatch.

"IT is under pressure to support the new application formats required by mobile devices. However, without a strategic approach to managing all enterprise applications using the same Application Readiness best practice processes, IT staff risks losing control and falling behind," said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. "With today's announcement, AdminStudio Suite customers can now leverage the same automated processes for deploying their mobile apps via AirWatch that they use for their physical and virtual applications."

AdminStudio Suite is the only strategic solution that automates each step of the Application Readiness process including:

  1. Identify: Identify deployed and used applications
  2. Rationalize: Eliminate duplicate and un-used applications
  3. Assess Compatibility: Know which applications will install and run on target platform
  4. Plan: Scope, resource, and plan projects
  5. Fix & Package: Fix compatibility issues and convert applications to required deployment format
  6. Deploy: Prepare and pass packaged applications to deployment tool and to enterprise app store

AdminStudio Suite Mobile Pack enables organizations to identify, manage, track and report on Apple iOS and Windows Store apps in AdminStudio alongside Windows applications. Today's announced integration eliminates the previously manual process, allowing IT to automatically manage and publish internal Apple iOS enterprise applications directly via AirWatch, as well as view and edit a package's deployment data.

"The key benefit of AdminStudio Suite is that it takes the worry away for IT Administrators who are constantly barraged with change and have to safely and reliably deploy applications in new and emerging environments," said Polte. "With the ability to use the same tool to automatically test, remediate, fix and deploy applications in all environments - they can focus on strategy rather than on the tactics of how they'll get those applications ready for their users."
