As you get into a high delivery pace for your beta-testers or clients, managing your apps’ versions can be dizzying.
Most of our clients use several private app stores to manage their deployment strategy, following their internal organization. For example, we have met some that use one store as a dev repository, using continuous delivery tools integrations ; another one for bêta-testing ; and eventually a last one for massive BYOD or COPE deployment of the same apps. Some use one Appaloosa store per business unit or country that they address. So, it goes up to 150 or 200 stores for the most active clients.
As many of you know, Android now enables mobile app managers to use a special configuration - called a Work Profile - on Android devices to better control their deployment strategy. It creates a work-dedicated and secure partition on the device, that does not mix with personal-related data.
As a new year has just begun, let’s take a quick tour of Appaloosa’s product evolutions over 2018 and a few or our upcoming projects for 2019.
After its announcement on February 21, 2018; Google has released its Android Entreprise Recommended program which aims at providing large companies with efficient mobile management solutions.
The suspense is over! Android 9 will effectively be called Android Pie and will be available on all compatible devices between late 2018 and 2019, depending on the manufacturer.
