New App Platforms will Accelerate Enterprise Mobility Adoption

Kony, Inc. a leading provider of Enterprise Mobility solutions has announced a partnership with Citrix, a leader in mobile workspaces for business.

This partnership will allow Kony and Citrix to deliver a unique mobile application to customers across the entire lifecycle, from initial mobile design and development to the deployment and management of solutions.

"We are excited to work with Kony to help power the mobile enterprise with industry-proven applications, visualisation, development, and management tools for a wide range of industries, including banking, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and government," said Scott Schwarzhoff, Vice President of Mobile Application Platforms, Citrix. "The unique combination of Kony's comprehensive mobile app platform and XenMobile EMM solution will significantly empower customers to accelerate their mobile strategy, to deliver world class mobile experiences."

Kony's aim is to empower customers to get to market faster with Kony Apps, which are now verified by the Citrix Ready program. These apps provide multi-edge experiences that are fully customisable, easily integrated, highly secured, scalable, and business-ready with reporting and analytics.

With Kony Apps, customers receive individualised solutions from quick-start app templates, designed to efficiently mobilise the business or customer processes to meet business requirements, exceed user expectations and drive business results.

Kony's apps are all built on its Enterprise Mobility Platform to meet the development needs across the full mobile app development and operations (DevOps) lifecycle. Built to support both IT and lines of business, this full DevOps solution encompasses unique app UI design tools (Kony Visualiser) and multi-channel app development tools (Kony Studio), empowered by Kony's Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) offering (Kony MobileFabric), as well as testing and analytics.

These features can then extend fully to the end user through the addition of Kony Apps, allowing customers to get to market faster.

"Leading companies across the globe are successfully using mobility as a catalyst for business innovation," said Dave Shirk, President, Products and Marketing, Kony. "Enterprise mobile apps are no longer a 'nice to have'. It has now become a strategic imperative for businesses to effectively compete in this new mobile era. We are excited to work with Citrix, a long-standing industry technology leader. Together, we will empower enterprises to fast-track their mobile strategy with a proven mobile-centric approach from start to finish, with leading technology at every level."
