AirWatch has always operated on the premise of simplicity. The AirWatch Marketplace echoes that sentiment. AirWatch continually works with hundreds of technology companies to help enable your enterprise and discover the solutions that best fit your mobility strategy. Our partner’s solutions needed a centralized portal, a place to be discovered – and so the AirWatch Marketplace was created.
AirWatch Connect Atlanta was the second stop on the Connect world tour. Throughout Connect Atlanta, John Marshall and company introduced an abundance of new products and feature updates. One of which, the AirWatch Marketplace, garnered a good amount of praise among attendees – and rightfully so.
AirWatch CEO, John Marshall, describes the reasoning behind the project, “We developed AirWatch Marketplace so our customers and partners could easily identify technologies that complement their investments in AirWatch and mobile. AirWatch continues to build the most comprehensive platform and ecosystem for enterprise mobility.”
Below are the top 7 things you need to know about the AirWatch Marketplace.
