Portugal Telecom And VeliQ Partner To Enable The Mobile Workplace

Portugal Telecom (NYSE: PT) and VeliQ today announced a commercial partnership whereby Portugal Telecom will offer VeliQ’s mobility Platform as a Service solution (mPaaS ) to its customers in Southern Europe, Brazil, Latin America and Africa.

Portugal Telecom will offer the VeliQ mobility Platform as a Service globally, through its state-of-the-art hosting Data Center in Covilhã, Portugal.

“The innovation that VeliQ has delivered allows us to offer our customers a world-class enterprise mobility solution in a cost effective fashion,” added Miguel Moreira, Managing Director of Portugal Telecom Sistemas de Informação. “Our customers are asking for cloud-based mobility solutions and as of today, we can offer them a complete mobility Platform as a Service.”

Leveraging SAP’s industry leading Afaria © mobile device management engine and SUP, SAP’s Mobile Application Development Platform, VeliQ’s mPaaS provides users a highly scalable, multi-tenant, SaaS based solution for mobile device management, application management, content management, security, development and deployment of mobile applications. Additionally, VeliQ’s mPaaS incorporates into one unified console the means to integrate corporate back end systems such as Active Directory or enterprise data to provide complete mobility enablement.

“Organizations are increasingly recognizing that an enterprise mobility platform does not have to be provided as a cumbersome on premise solution,” said Alex Bausch, founder and CEO of VeliQ. “While employees continue to demand the ability to bring their own devices to the workplace, IT departments need a powerful, yet easy to deploy and use system for securing mobile devices, develop applications and distribute content. This allows companies to focus less on managing devices and instead focus more on enabling their mobile workforce.”

This announcement is the latest in a series of significant technology and go-to-market partnerships that continue to validate and reinforce VeliQ’s ecosystem approach to accelerate, innovate and integrate in the cloud-based enterprise mobility market. This ecosystem approach allows VeliQ’s partners to provide their customers the most complete, best-of-breed mobile technologies in an easy to use SaaS model.
