GO!Enterprise is the perfect platform for development, deployment and management of secure mobile apps. GO!Enterprise solutions are built rapidly using a codeless development environment which produces cross-platform mobile GO!Apps with a native look and feel. GO!Enterprise supports centralized distribution of GO!Apps on any mobile device and provides enterprise-grade functionality for end-to-end management of mobility solutions. GO!Enterprise enables seamless and secure integration with any back-end system like ERP, CRM, ordering, billing or ticketing and is ideally suited for the delivery of mobile services supporting secure transactions, e.g. m-banking, m-booking, m-shopping, m-parking etc. GO!Enterprise is ideally suited for the implementation of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mobility strategies.
The GO!Enterprise mobility platform consists of three main components:
GO!AppZone Studio , for codeless and rapid development of mobile GO!Apps;
GO!Enterprise Workspace , a secure managed container which hosts and renders GO!Apps on mobile devices;
GO!Enterprise Server , a versatile middleware server which enables secure communication with back-end systems, data synchronization and mobile application management.
What is a GO!App
When a developer compiles a GO!Enterprise project, the main result is an application definition file, called a GO!App. Each GO!App is described using GLOBO’s XML-based (patent pending) cloud application markup language called IRIS. Using IRIS, an application is defined in terms of UI elements, data handling structures, configurations and actions. Actions can be triggered by the user or executed automatically according to specific settings and conditions.
The application definition file is used by:
GO!Enterprise Workspace to dynamically render the app’s UI on the mobile device, and
GO!Enterprise Server to implement connections with back-end systems and synchronize data.
Small and medium businesses (SMBs) have considerable needs for mobility solutions, just as large enterprises do.
However, they cannot easily provide their employees with mobile access to business information and applications.
They often face obstacles such as limited IT resources, small IT budgets and the inherent integration challenges of existing disparate back-office systems (on-premises or cloud-based).
Typical enterprise mobility solutions do not offer SMBs the kind of scale, cost or simplicity they really need.
GO!Enterprise247 is an innovative, all-in-one, cloud-based mobility solution, tailored to the needs of SMBs.
Based on proven GO!Enterprise technology , it provides:
Mobile-ready, integrated hosting service for email, contacts, calendar, tasks, notes, file storage and enterprise-class instant messaging.
The necessary tools for rapid and easy mobilization of other business data and applications, on-premises or in the cloud.
Using the intuitive GO!Enterprise Workspace , employees can securely access GO!Enterprise247 services and custom mobile apps from their Android, iOS, Windows Phone or BlackBerry devices. Of course, access to services like email and file storage is also available from your PC or laptop using a web-based user portal or your Microsoft Outlook client (for email and personal information management).
GO!Enterprise247 is a BYOD-friendly service, since it allows employee-owned devices to access business data and applications in a secure and centrally controlled manner, without imposing limitations on device configurations or the use of personal data and applications.
