[Free Webinar] Making the most of your information investments

Making the most of your information investments: Webinar with Ovum & Canon

When: Thursday 28th May 2015 at 14:00

In today’s always-on working environment, knowledge workers are overloaded with information. Even though investments in information management have been on the rise, the tools and training that workers need to properly share, store and use this information are often lacking – resulting in a loss of efficiency and productivity. Ovum and Canon have brought together a range of primary research studies, getting to understand the point of view of both end-users and enterprise IT departments around how they use and manage information.

Join us to examine:

• The scale of the information mis-management problem
• The potential solutions to it
• The benefits of getting information management right

Ovum in partnership with Canon, are offering an introductory webinar to help today’s businesses making the most of their information investments. Please join us.

Telstra Selects AppDirect to Power its Business Apps Marketplace #cloudasia

Collaboration with Australia’s Largest Telco Enables One-Stop Shop for Millions of Small Businesses to Find, Buy and Manage Apps

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., October 28, 2014 – AppDirect, the cloud commerce service company, announced today a major collaboration with Telstra — the largest telecommunications and information services company in Australia with a global presence that spans 230 countries — to power the new Telstra Apps Marketplace. The Telstra Apps Marketplace provides a one-stop shop and management portal for customers to find, buy, and use today’s best business apps. The new marketplace is live today and features two applications from Box and DocuSign.

“We’re very proud to work with Telstra to continue to push the boundaries of innovation in cloud services. Telstra was the first in its market to drive cloud services for its customer base and is continuing this leadership across its large global service footprint and among its well-established network of resellers. Working with Telstra, we’ve had the opportunity to not only power its new marketplace but provide a full scope of monetization and management services that make it incredibly easy to engage and benefit from cloud services,” said Daniel Saks, co-CEO of AppDirect. “AppDirect’s vision has always been to create a world where businesses have easy access to the technology tools they need to thrive. By collaborating with Telstra, we’ve been able to bring this ideal to life for millions of Australian small and medium businesses.”

New features for customers

The AppDirect-powered Telstra Apps Marketplace will deliver new features and capabilities, including faster on-boarding and go-to-market availability for new applications, as well as real-time updates so customers have access to the most up-to-date products. By logging into the Telstra Apps Marketplace, customers can use it as a central hub to manage their apps, including Box and DocuSign, and can also easily access and browse a catalog of specifically curated business apps and related services. Box is a cloud file sharing and collaboration app that lets businesses securely share and access important business files and documents, whether it’s the latest invoice for a customer, project proposal or pitch presentation. With access to DocuSign, businesses can quickly, easily and securely collect and transact business information and sign documents anytime, right from the marketplace. Telstra will continue to onboard more business applications over the coming months and migrate apps from Telstra’s previous platform in 2015.

Will Irving, Telstra Business Group Managing Director said, “Telstra wants to help businesses be the best that they can be, moving to cloud based business and mobile apps gives them greater flexibility, enhancing the ability to work on the move and reducing administration, leaving them more time to work on what matters most – their core business. Working with innovative providers such as AppDirect, we can deliver a simple online experience for our customers that will make it easy to find and use the right apps for their business.”
