MOBILITY FOR A GLOBAL ENERGY GIANT
The ChallengeOne of the world’s largest global energy suppliers needed infrastructure and services to support 100,000 globally distributed users with mobile devices in more than 60 countries. Many field workers are stationed on oil rigs and in other remote locations, so the global support network needed to be comprehensive and robust.
Our InsightBased on several strategy sessions with stakeholders around the world, we determined that we would need twelve globally distributed data centers, along with a highly scalable mobile device management (MDM) system, to securely support our client’s large number of workers and devices.
CREATING SECURE, SCALABLE MDM
Given the client’s broad array of devices and stringent security requirements, we recommended and implemented MobileIron for mobile device management (MDM). MobileIron delivered the right combination of security and data protection, scalability and manageability to meet our client’s needs on a global scale.
BUILDING A CUSTOM MOBILE ENTERPRISE APP STORE
Our client also needed to securely roll out and manage an extensive set of enterprise mobile apps. And with its far-flung workforce, they needed to offer employees an easy-to-use self-service portal that would provide immediate service, any time, day or night. We deployed and continue to manage a customized enterprise app store. We also conducted all of the app certification and testing necessary to ensure our client’s data and apps are safe and secure.
RAPID ROLLOUT. MASSIVE SCALE.
We deployed this mobile solution in record time. At the project’s peak, we were registering and activating more than 1,000 devices per day. Now our mobile service centers continue to keep users connected and productive all the time, wherever our client’s business takes them.
We deliver all the benefits of mobility for our client, with none of the burdens. Mobility management is handled seamlessly on a global scale, freeing our client’s IT department to focus on strategic initiatives that drive competitive advantage.
