The collaboration combines the breadth of Samsung’s mobile device portfolio with the depth of Red Hat’s open source middleware, mobile and cloud technologies.
The next generation of mobile business solutions is expected to be defined by greater levels of openness, agility and access to critical business information, while maintaining required levels of security.
Samsung Business Services provides a diverse portfolio of technologies targeted for business from smartphones to wearables, tablets, digital displays, hospitality TVs and printers.
The company said joint mobility solutions from Red Hat and Samsung Business Services will help businesses advance and accelerate their mobile initiatives.
Additionally, Samsung Business Services and Red Hat will offer business applications, developer ecosystem, support services and business collaboration.
The applications will run on the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform and address key workforce management and business tasks such as business intelligence, field and customer service, inventory management and sales catalog, pricing, ordering, and invoicing.
Company officials said applications can optionally be customized and tailored to fit the needs of an organization’s unique needs and will run on Android and other operating environments via the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform.
The new ecosystem of enterprises partners and developers will promote rapid innovation and availability of solutions that meet both current and emerging needs in mobility.
This apart, Red Hat and Samsung Business Services will engage in joint go-to-market activities for the solutions developed through the alliance.
“We are excited to collaborate with Red Hat to deliver the next generation of mobile enterprise applications and solutions, and are committed to shaping the future of innovation,” said Robin Bienfait, executive vice president, chief enterprise innovation officer, Samsung.
