Antenna Software, Inc., helping enterprises to build, manage and publish mobile apps, and websites that transform business, today announced it has been recognized as one of six "Hot Vendors in Mobile, 2012" [i] by Aragon Research, a new technology focused research and advisory firm founded by former Gartner analysts.
Antenna's selection by Aragon Research as a "Hot Vendor" validates its industry-leading enterprise mobility platform, AMPchromaTM, the first mobile management suite of its kind that addresses the full mobile lifecycle, with cloud-based mobile application development and management tools. It helps businesses reduce the cost of "going mobile" by eliminating infrastructure investments and the redundant operating costs associated with multiple mobile projects. The suite supports a holistic approach to mobile - helping CIOs and chief mobile officers develop an enterprise-wide mobile strategy, while allowing IT departments to manage and secure mobile devices, apps and data, and empowering individual business units to connect with customers through the mobile channel.
According to the report,"Bringing mobility into the mainstream of enterprise technology strategy is a top priority for most businesses. BYOD ("bring your own device") has raised the pressure on IT organizations to respond. A lot is needed to successfully deploy mobile devices and apps and to do it securely and efficiently. Mobile providers like Amazon, Apple, Google, Microsoft and RIM are building mobile ecosystems, but that doesn't mean the job is done for the enterprise. There are many aspects to successfully navigating the mobile evolution. Aragon Research is constantly looking for vendors that can provide our clients with helpful solutions."
"Mobile is the hottest segment of business today - it touches virtually every industry and every job function. It is also an essential business driver and is transforming the way people work and how businesses interact with customers, partners, and employees. As such, it has created complexity and new challenges for businesses globally," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO, Antenna Software. "The recognition from Aragon Research underscores our commitment to helping companies make sense of the opportunities that mobile brings, while ensuring they have the tools and strategic mindset needed to monetize mobility initiatives. Aragon's report validates what we've set out to do - empower global enterprises to deliver on their strategic goals and make employee and customer mobility a successful reality."
