VMware to Work with Oracle to Leverage ACE Best Practices for Oracle Mobile Cloud Service
FREMONT, CA: VMware announces partnership with Oracle to deliver customers the secure mobile based enterprise applications. The Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, which includes the Mobile Application Framework, will now be compatible with the ACE approach.
Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, a Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) is a model that provides a consistent way for business professionals to analyze, mine and manage backend data. It simplifies and enables a secure connection of mobile applications to enterprise systems and other cloud services.
ACE (App Configuration for Enterprise) is an open-standards approach to build management and security features into enterprise apps and a consistent way for developers enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendors to configure and secure mobile applications by practicing around native operating system capabilities. The standards establish uniform programming language to enable better integration with EMM systems, a seamless user experience across managed apps, tighter controls for IT administrators, and a method for creating apps that are ready for enterprise at the outset.
ACE defines standards for the categories: app setup and configuration, app-to-network connectivity, single sign-on authentication, access control for native apps, data loss prevention configurations, and standard device and enterprise wipe. It removes that barrier by unifying enterprise apps with a standard methodology that any developer or management provider can apply; ensuring single app versions are compatible across EMM systems and ultimately opening the door for enterprise users to download hundreds of apps that now integrate with their EMM platform.
"Oracle is pleased to help provide customers with the ability to more simply deploy and use mobile apps in the enterprise. This is a crucial step in the next generation of business mobility and best practices like those recommended by ACE, simplify deployment and increase user adoption, which is key. Together with VMware, we look forward to helping transform enterprise mobile app adoption," said Chris Tonas, Vice President, Mobility and Development Tools, Oracle.
