The Challenge

Mobile and social media use in the enterprise is growing exponentially with consumer demand for more convenience, speed and interaction.

Mobile phones have overtaken PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide (source: Gartner). The workforce of tomorrow doesn't grow up with PCs, fixed desk phones and Microsoft Outlook. Rather, they use mobile devices, wireless communications and a range of social software rooted in the cloud. As these workers enter the workplace, they will want to leverage the many tools they have become accustomed to during the education phase of their lives. But the current workforce, more than ever, also expects to be connected to their critical business processes while on the go.

A modern business communication software suite must offer a complete solution for enterprise mobility. If the suite provides native applications on all leading mobile devices, users are able to communicate, take action, track events, send requests, receive notifications, and integrate with existing ACM, CRM, BPM, ERP and database systems, even when out of the office.

The Needs

More sophisticated users in the workforce, a broader array of lower cost devices, and rapidly evolving consumer computing options are pushing employee-owned devices into your organization whether or not you are aware of it, and whether or not you want it. In fact, some companies are beginning to embrace "Bring Your Own Device" as a way to save money and/or to get out of the business of managing end-user hardware.

However, changing ownership doesn't eliminate the problems of mobile application development, security and compliance, or even all of the costs. It does create the need for new application and security architectures, new management and deployment processes and even new support models. The growth of employee-owned devices is inevitable you can either manage the process or be overwhelmed by it.

The Solution

With Papyrus we enable customers to future-proof their application investment because we provide standard software for a broad range of platforms and mobile devices - with no need to program-specific languages for those platforms and devices.

The Papyrus Platform is suited to serve the most complex application landscapes where multiple back-ends can run on different operating systems. In short, Papyrus Mobile offers:

  • Full integration with back-end systems (data and content)
  • Application defined and maintained on the server side
  • Single User Interface (UI) definition
  • Secure access via HTTPs with Papyrus Portal
  • User roles define access capabilities and authorizations
  • Corporate data not stored in device, avoiding loss of data
