Fifteen enterprise application leaders have just announced their commitment to standardize public applications and development in the enterprise with ACE (App Configuration for Enterprise).
ACE is an open standard approach for managing and securing apps deployed via enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. Founding members of ACE, launched in early 2015, include AirWatch, Box, Cisco, Salesforce, Workday, and Xamarin.
“Once an application developer implements ACE standards, users simply download the public-facing application and corporate resources are automatically configured, allowing users to instantly and securely use the app in their jobs,” according to a formal announcement from ACE.
Those new ACE members include bigtincan, Deputy, DocuSign, Dropbox, Everbridge, Imprivata, Kony, Lua, MicroStrategy, OnBase by Hyland, ScrollMotion, ServiceMax, Showpad, Syncplicity by EMC and Webalo.
“While app developers are fundamentally changing the way that consumers engage with companies, organizations too are transforming business processes and workflows through mobile applications,” ACE asserts, pledging to accelerate that transformation by “making deploying applications in workforces easier and simpler for end users and organizations.”
