HP Launches Enterprise Mobile Software Partner Program
Mobile software is shaping up to be one of the next big battlegrounds in the IT industry. This week Hewlett-Packard, in a bid to build up its partner ecosystem around its mobile software offerings, launched a partner program focused on its HP Anywhere and HP Access Catalog enterprise mobile software products.
The HP Anywhere Partner program offers training, certification, sales and marketing tools, and other resources to partners who work with the vendor's enterprise mobility software. The HP Anywhere product line of cross-platform development and testing tools includes the recently acquired Shunra tools for testing on 3G and 4G networks.
Ingram Micro executive vice president and Americas group president Paul Bay says rather than focus on technology and its delivery, Ingram Micro today is all about the business outcome the channel needs to deliver.
