Mformation® Software Technologies LLC, the leading global provider of solutions for managing wirelessly connected devices, today announced the expansion of its leadership team to address the evolving requirements of carriers, service providers and enterprises, in an increasingly mobile world.

“Mobile devices are predicted to outstrip the global population. In technology-driven parts of the world, users already average more than 3 mobile devices each and the demand for those devices to become increasingly more connected is evidenced by the exponential growth and expanding use cases for M2M. When you consider that growth along with increasing end-user requirements around usability, productivity, and convenience, it is clear that our customers face unique challenges and limitless opportunities,” said David Shimoni, who was appointed as Mformation’s President and General Manager, Carrier Division mid-last year. “This leadership team was specifically selected to help our customers capitalize on all of these new possibilities. We have a renewed focus on driving success for our customers around the globe and in reclaiming our leadership position as innovators in mobility management solutions.”

Christine has also served as the AVP of Marketing for the Americas region at Nokia, Enterprise Division and has held a variety of leadership roles at Cingular Wireless and SBC Communications. “The Mformation platform has been designed for unprecedented scalability and performance, enabling management of billions of wirelessly connected devices for leading carriers worldwide,” says Bolles. “I am elated to be part of the Mformation team and to be able to bring our partners mobility management solutions for the evolving market on a platform that they have used to manage their core business for more than a decade. In 2014, we will be supporting next-generation network migrations with expansion of our ADD/ADC offerings and mobile data offload support. We will also continue to make a big splash in the M2M device management space, while simultaneously focusing on helping our carrier partners improve customer care, gain consumer insights, and manage the customer experience.

I have joined Mformation to make sure that we do that by delivering great products, solid support and high level of customer satisfaction in this very demanding market,” says Barton.
