ICT solutions and services provider Dimension Data has announced it will launch Enterprise Mobility-as-a-Service (EMaaS), signaling its intent to provide a suite of cloud-based end-user computing services on a global basis.
EMaaS establishes the platform for the group?s future initiatives that will see Dimension Data announce increased functionality and feature sets that assist enterprise clients to deal with their rapidly changing end user computing requirements.
Dimension Data?s EMaaS offering is an integrated enterprise mobility management service that provides organizations with the ability to deliver policy-based, device-independent, mobile device management, mobile expense management, integration to the enterprise, and underpinned by cloud principles of automation and consumption-based commercials.
The service, which utilizes a cloud-based consumption model, enables organizations to scale deployments while managing the complex environment of mobile devices, data access, and expense management.
Due to the complex nature of mobility deployments, the EMaaS offering is complemented by Dimension Data?s Systems Integration and Professional Services competencies and addresses the full spectrum of an organization?s enterprise mobility needs.
Neville Burdan, Dimension Data Asia Pacific?s general manager, end-user computing, said, ?The launch of EMaaS is an important step for Dimension Data as it marks the establishment of the platform that we will use to rapidly evolve to deliver enterprises with a suite of services that addresses their emerging user-centric end-user computing requirements.?
Burdan says EMaaS was designed to address an immediate requirement of enterprise clients around mobile devices, smart devices, and how to ensure these new devices can be incorporated into their business in a rapid, yet controlled and secure way.
EMaaS provides enterprise clients with:
? An extensive policy framework and secure access to corporate information from any device, ensuring appropriate authentication and corporate governance adherence
? Rapid provisioning, automation and user self-service via the cloud-based principles gained from Dimension Data?s globally recognized cloud services investments over the last four years
? The ability to upload corporate mobile invoices for analysis, enabling clients to gain insights into the costs associated with their mobility fleet
? Extensive reporting and analytical capabilities that deliver a comprehensive view across all enterprise mobility usage patterns
? Pay-for-use consumption pricing that benefits from the economies of scale delivered by cloud-based deployments
Dimension Data has completed numerous mobility engagements globally, utilizing a consultative-led approach via its Enterprise Mobility Development Model (EMDM).
This approach has enabled Dimension Data to provide context to clients that addresses the multiple facets associated with complex mobility projects.
EMaaS has been developed as a cloud-based solution, based on the experience gained and results achieved from these global managed mobility customer engagements.
Dimension Data?s EMaaS is commercially available in the next half of this year via a self-service client portal.
