Infotech Lead America: AppSense has named Ajay Arora as the chief technology officer (CTO) of mobile.
Arora will be responsible for leading the continued development and implementation of the company’s overall mobile product strategy. In his new post, Arora will play a vital role ensuring AppSense meets the needs of enterprises and their employees around the world in response to the rapid growth of BYOD and the mobile workforce.
According to Gartner, 65 percent of enterprises will adopt a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution for corporate users over the next five years. With the rapid adoption of MDM and Mobile Application Management (MAM) solutions, AppSense is in a prime position to capitalize on the mobile industry growth.
Meanwhile, AppSense has promoted Jon Wallace to chief technology officer (CTO), cloud and emerging technologies.
Wallace will work with Keith Turnbull, AppSense Chief Development Officer (CDO), as well as the cloud and emerging technologies team to service and expand product lines to accelerate the company’s rapid growth.
Wallace was responsible for the original foundations, principals and designs of the AppSense DataNow product, a leading enterprise data orchestration platform. In this new role, Wallace will focus on and lead the software strategy beyond the current enterprise stack.
“For almost 10 years, Jon has been responsible for creating and developing key cloud-based technology products, including DataNow,” said Darron Antill, CEO of AppSense.
Gartner recently predicted that the worldwide cloud services market will surpass $109 billion by the end of this year. As cloud adoption continues to increase due to driving forces such as bring your own device (BYOD), data management and access and the mobile workforce, AppSense is able to penetrate the cloud market through its cutting-edge user virtualization and data management technology solutions.
