HP Access Catalog
- The trend in consumerization has indelibly marked the enterprise. Employees expect access to content from their device of choice, their enterprise apps to work intuitively and their experience to be seamless. IT organizations, in turn, are facing increasing pressure to deliver a marketplace experience that makes it easy for employees to and and install applications and content that drive workforce productivity, while maintaining enterprise security and controlling costs.
- With the HP Access Catalog’s user-friendly web interface, organizations can streamline the deployment of mobile applications to employees, easing administrative burdens. Through the catalog’s native identity management system or seamless integration with enterprise identity systems, IT organizations can ensure that users can easily nd and download the right applications for their role. In addition, the catalog allows IT organizations to drive updates to users to ensure they have the most current applications and data, increasing their mobile productivity and eﬀectiveness without compromising security.
- Seeing a need in the market, we were tasked to build a product that delivered via native mobile clients and a web interface, a pure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) oﬀering that helped organizations reduce the cost and complexity of managing applications on company-issued and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobile devices.

We really began by looking at the two biggest app stores: Android and iOs - and looking at how they could be translated into a multi-platform system. A lot of things mimick both of these but adding the complexity of having desktop and mobile apps means that these two platforms did not fully meet our requirements
