HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Appnetic, a revolutionary mobile sales enablement platform, using patented technology, today announced its public beta release to a test group of selected registrants. The new platform enables, for the very first time, nontechnical sales and marketing managers to create, customize, and distribute sales tools and marketing materials and resources to an unlimited number of users.
Appnetic's mission is to make mobile sales enablement accessible for all businesses through Software as a Service (SaaS). Its patented technology provides a comprehensive, integrated platform that includes custom app design, native and cross-platform mobile apps, content management, analytics, user management, help desk, content monitoring, sales enablement optimization and landing pages -- all via one web portal.
"Enterprises of all sizes have consistently told us about challenges in their sales and marketing departments," stated Tien Wong, CEO of Appnetic and its incubator, Tech 2000. "Sales tools are not readily available on mobile devices, marketing doesn't know if their collateral is useful or even being used, and salespeople are using outdated or incorrect presentations. Appnetic solves these pain points by arming salespeople with access to the right information they need, efficiently and 'just in time,' so they can close more deals."
Appnetic was created to capitalize on the explosion in mobility, particularly in sales departments. Marketers want to supply better systems and leads, sales teams want to spend time selling -- not mining for information -- and managers want to ensure the highest productivity from their teams.
The Appnetic platform helps companies better deploy, update, and adapt sales programs in the field, giving them the ability to distribute marketing assets and collateral, send and receive notifications, update existing content, and expire outdated content "real time," while providing data-driven decision support in the field to better empower cross-selling and consultative selling on a just-in-time basis.
"According to a study by the American Marketing Association, salespeople consider 90% of the materials created by marketing useless," added Bill Smith, Vice President of Product & Growth. "The problem is not just the materials themselves, but also the ability to have a platform for easier customization and navigation of those materials. Appnetic will change the way sales, marketing, and managers work, sell, and go-to-market."
Features available in the beta version of Appnetic include:
- Custom Design: Adaptive templates to create any kind of mobile view of your tools, including promotions, case studies, video demos, and collateral briefcases, no matter your level of technical skill.
- Content Management: Step-by-step instructions to easily build customized applications in a matter of minutes.
- Publish and Track: Real-time publishing capabilities, alongside analytics and tracking mechanisms for management to utilize.
Appnetic will provide a Free Trial for users interested in better understanding how the platform can work in their environments, and will soon offer standard, professional, and enterprise versions of the platform with varying feature sets. Future capabilities in the Appnetic roadmap will include:
- Multiple content profiles
- Text messaging and interactive push message capabilities
- Expanded sharing of documents, photos, videos, etc.
- Infographics and detailed audit logs
- Integration with Salesforce.com, Oracle and other leading CRM and CMS platforms
Registration for the beta platform is now available at http://www.appnetic.com/contact/.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos.
In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
