REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- Zenprise®, Inc., the recognized leader and innovator in mobile device management (MDM), announces two innovative customer use cases demonstrating the next generation in enterprise mobility. Red Robin International, Inc. and Encompass Home Health are tackling strategic mobile initiatives to help improve business processes and grow the top line. According to Aberdeen, "best in class" organizations are three times as likely as all others to tie business process to users' mobile devices.
Rather than thinking about mobility as just a security liability, these organizations are approaching mobile strategically with clear business objectives in mind.
Red Robin International, Inc.
Red Robin is a casual dining restaurant chain that serves more than two dozen high-quality, fresh gourmet burgers, as well as salads, sandwiches, entrees and soups in a family-friendly atmosphere. Red Robin is using 1,700 iPads across North America to check-in guests, let customers know when their tables are ready and provide immersive learning experiences.
The national restaurant chain also uses the iPads to enable communication between managers via an enterprise social networking app and to deliver diverse learning solutions to Red Robin Team Members. Red Robin selected the Zenprise platform to place innovative solutions that enable collaboration, personalized training and knowledge directly into the hands of Team Members. Zenprise also allows Red Robin to remotely manage and secure company iPads, in addition to providing a platform to manage the deployment of mobile applications and content.
For Red Robin, Zenprise has been particularly useful in deploying custom iPad apps and ensuring that all Team Members are using the most current version of applications. Zenprise also helps Red Robin get data out of paper documents and into interactive apps and custom built games that broaden the appeal of training. In short, Zenprise has enabled Red Robin to easily deploy iPads for different roles and purposes and evolve those to fit rapidly changing business needs.
Encompass Home Health
Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and with over 100 locations in ten states Encompass Home Health is a provider of home health, hospice and pediatric care to homebound patients. Critical to the company's technology strategy is its mobile deployment -- consisting of more than 2,300 Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tabs equipped with a mobile, clinical documentation app developed by Homecare Homebase, an industry-leading developer of home health software.
Encompass uses Zencloud to support Encompass' mission-critical operations including HIPAA compliance requirements, in reporting for the company's compliance and cost control initiatives and as an easy-to-use administrative interface for managing thousands of devices. With Zenprise as its MDM partner, the Encompass team has a reliable, secure mobility platform that is essential to the company's superior healthcare and hospice practice.
"As the platform for the most mission-critical technology in the company, MDM reliability is vital," said Scott Beard, Director of Information Technology at Encompass Home Health. "The new system absolutely needed to work so we selected Zenprise over other MDM vendors because without a reliable solution in place, we had no way of being able to successfully manage the remote devices and assist staff when needed."
Zenprise recently announced Zensuite, the only integrated solution for end-to-end mobile productivity. Zensuite offers IT the ability to secure and manage mobile content across content repositories, email, intranets, and apps while preserving the native mobile device and app experience that end users have come to expect.

Take the Long View with Digital Transformation By @IoT2040 | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #API #Microservices #InternetOfThings
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
