Big Nerd Ranch Finds Mobile App Management Solution With App47
Reston, VA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
A mobile application management (MAM) solution provided by Northern Virginia-based App47 has streamlined distribution and management of internally developed enterprise mobile apps for Big Nerd Ranch, saving time and improving efficiency in testing and evaluation. According to company leadership, using the App47 MAM solution has made deployment, monitoring, and management of apps used by the company's engineers and instructors so simple that it's become essentially invisible.
“We needed a way to manage our internal mobile applications, and speed distribution and testing of apps in the development phase,” explained Emily Herman, director of software products for Big Nerd Ranch. “We're busy enough meeting client needs for programming boot camps, corporate training, and app development. We wanted a MAM solution that made it easy to manage all our apps from a single dashboard and get them into the hands of the right people, whether instructors or the development team, for testing.”
According to Herman, the “set it and forget it” aspect of the App47 solution eliminated internal deployment difficulties that had previously delayed the release of apps. She estimates that App47 saves several hours in testing and deployment time per build.
“In one instance,” Herman explained, “we tried to deploy through another well-known app testing solution, but it kept getting hung up. We shifted to App47 and the issue was resolved almost immediately.”
App47 CEO Chris Schroeder further noted that the MAM solution's ability to get the right version of an app to the right group of people at the right time is helping many of his company's clients ensure timely release of rock-solid, fully tested apps.
“We receive a lot of praise for the effectiveness and the painlessness of our app store,” said Schroeder. “Many of our clients, who perhaps engaged us at first using the app store or our crash analytics, subsequently start using our entire MAM solution. They are able to then effectively address deployment, configuration, monitoring, management, and security – all essential to realizing real enterprise mobile app ROI.”
App47 specializes in the enterprise mobile application management (MAM) life cycle, from deployment, through management, to performance analytics and ROI while ensuring enterprise and user data privacy, and optimized mobile user experience. App47 offers a free trial version of its MAM solution, and allows users to automate mobile application deployment by creating their own self-service enterprise app store.
