Verizon (News - Alert) Enterprise Solutions has added new features to its cloud-based Mobile Workforce Manager solution to help organizations better manage and secure corporate-issued and employee-owned devices.
The company has also signed a resale agreement with enterprise mobility management provider MobileIron.
Mobile Workforce Manager (MWM) enables users to tap the cloud to manage everything required to be productive and secure access gained through mobile devices. This popular Mobile Workforce Manager solution is available in about 30 countries and territories including Argentina, Australia, and Austria.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions offers industry-specific solutions and a complete range of global wholesale offerings. The company was in the news earlier this year for signing a memorandum of understanding with SAP (News - Alert) that lays the foundation to deploy the SAP HANA platform in Verizon's data centers.
SAP HANA, SAP's in-memory platform, will be made available to customers across Verizon's cloud offerings, including Managed Hosting, eCloud and the new Verizon Cloud.
“Through collaboration with leading companies such as Verizon, we intend to provide our customers with even more choices to run applications developed on SAP HANA,” said Bob Grazioli, global head, Cloud Ecosystem, SAP. “We expect that our partners' cloud offerings will be able to offer SAP customers the world-class service and innovation they have come to expect from SAP.”
This year, Verizon Enterprise Solutions also formed a partnership with Oracle (News - Alert), to help customers to use Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware on Verizon's cloud infrastructure.
While Verizon allows large and mid-size businesses to tap into the power of the cloud, Oracle offers a wider number of choices and flexibility to customers through multiple deployment options for its software.
Customers have the option of either bringing their own Oracle licenses to the Verizon platform or purchase Verizon cloud services, which include Oracle licenses.
The existing Verizon eCloud and Managed Hosting customers can use Oracle software on a per-hour cost basis by leveraging existing Oracle licenses.
“This deal represents two market leaders coming together to create a compelling cloud offering that will help enterprises succeed in a highly competitive market environment,” said Oracle president Mark Hurd (News - Alert).
