HP this week released the HP Access Catalog, an on-demand mobile service that the company said allows employees to “instantly download applications and digital content” across mobile and desktop devices.
“The trend in consumerization has indelibly marked the enterprise,” the company said in a release.
“Employees expect access to content from their device of choice, their enterprise apps to work intuitively and their experience to be seamless. IT organizations, in turn, are facing increasing pressure to deliver a marketplace experience that makes it easy for employees to find and install applications and content that drive workforce productivity, while maintaining enterprise security and controlling costs.
The HP Access Catalog offers organizations a secure, private “app store” for employees to browse, search and download mobile applications and digital content onto their devices of choice, including mobile and tablets devices, as well as desktops. It currently supports Android and iOS platforms, which comprised close to 94% of the mobile device market share in the third quarter of 2013.
