Apperian Adds App Signing Automation to Mobile Application Management Platform

New Capability Streamlines App Lifecycle Management While Saving IT Pro's Time and Headaches

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 14, 2013) - Apperian, Inc., the enterprise mobile application management (MAM) pioneer, today announced the availability of Auto Signing, a new capability of its Enterprise App Services Environment (EASE) platform. Auto Signing simplifies app lifecycle management by eliminating the complexity of the app signing process and allowing non-technical administrators to sign mobile apps from the admin portal without developer involvement or the need for a manual signing process. 

"Signing apps can add days to our workflow and delay projects -- especially considering that iOS apps need to be re-signed annually at a minimum and we're consistently pushing out updates to our catalogue of in-house apps," said Ty Rollin, Chief Architect at Mobiquity, Inc. "Now every signing or re-signing can be managed automatically using Auto App Signing and can easily be handled by anyone, saving us a significant amount of time and headaches. Each department now has control to publish their own apps while maintaining the security of our brand's certificate."

The feature is designed to deliver significant time and efficiency benefits to IT professionals and enterprises including the ability to:

  • Rapidly deploy new apps and new app updates to a broad range of mobile app users

  • Greatly reduce the effort, time investment and complexity around signing apps for mobile IT administrators

  • Eliminate the dependency on developers or third-party app providers by empowering non-technical staff to deploy apps

  • Repeat the signing process with predictable & dependable results

"Any app deployed in an enterprise must be signed properly before deployment. Until now, the process of signing apps has been complicated, confusing, error-prone, and time-consuming for many organizations," said Carlos Montero-Luque, CTO at Apperian. "It is in Apperian's DNA to deliver innovation in the creation of value to enterprises. With the Automatic App Signing capabilities, we have re-imagined and automated the app signing process in response to our customers' needs. This capability is already simplifying processes and reducing risk and time waste in our customer base."

The Auto Signing Server is available today for all users of Apperian's EASE platform. To learn more about the new feature and Apperian's EASE platform please visit: http://www.apperian.com/get-started/ease-platform.
