Delivering Enterprise Information When And Where You Need It
Above All Software, a provider of award-winning business integration software, announced a strategic partnership with Good Technology, Inc., the leader in wireless handheld computing software and service for the enterprise. Under this agreement, Good Technology is packaging and reselling the Above All Studio(TM) with GoodAccess(TM), making possible the rapid assembly of composite applications to deliver enterprise information to mobile employees when and where they need it. In addition, Good Technology will embed Above All Mobile Server technology in GoodAccess to provide vital functionality for deploying wireless composite applications.
Good Technology announced the GoodAccess platform today at a launch event in San Francisco where GoodAccess and Above All Studio were demonstrated to industry press and customers. GoodAccess extends Oracle, Siebel, Salesforce.com and other mission-critical enterprise applications to mobile professionals on a broad range of Palm-, PocketPC- and, in the future, Symbian-powered handheld devices and smartphones. Using GoodAccess with Above All Studio, businesses can quickly assemble integrated, composite wireless applications that combine data and functionality from multiple systems such as order management, product catalogs, invoicing and messaging, for an integrated experience that conforms to the needs of the mobile business user.
“Until today, mobile professionals had limited access to enterprise applications. Our vision is to enable the next generation of mobile computing where users can interact with business information from multiple enterprise applications from a single point of access,” said Danny Shader, CEO of Good Technology. “To do that, it was an easy decision to partner with Above All Software since the company shares the same vision around the mobile deployment of composite applications and has a unique and powerful solution for mobile devices with a lightweight footprint.”
“Above All Studio now makes it easy for business users to access and interact with critical business information stored in multiple silos through the assembly of composite applications — and IT professionals benefit by rapidly transforming existing assets into high-impact solutions that can be deployed to multiple environments,” said Roger Sippl, CEO of Above All Software. “We are excited to be working with an industry leader like Good Technology to extend business information to the mobile professional in an integrated and cost-effective way.”
Most companies today have a variety of back-end and front office applications that drive their business. For mobile professionals to be truly productive, they must have real-time access to the numerous, disparate enterprise applications that exist within and outside the organization. For instance, a mobile sales professional must be able to access his CRM solution at the front-end to track and manage his client contacts, but also integrate with back-end systems while on the road to get the most current information to update the account, or process an order — integrating CRM, ERP, finance and customer support. An effective mobile solution will extend the same access to front and back office applications to mobile devices that are available within the corporate walls and the best way to achieve this integration is through the assembly of composite applications. Together, Good Technology and Above All Software make this possible.
GoodAccess provides an industry-standards-based platform for rapidly developing and deploying mobile applications. Leveraging the same infrastructure as GoodLink(TM), Good Technology’s award winning wireless messaging software and service, GoodAccess connects mobile professionals to enterprise applications residing behind the firewall through a secure transport layer and standards-based integration.
