Samsung pursues enterprise users

Nancy Gohring, IDG News Service | March 25, 2011
Looking to sell more phones and tablets to enterprises -- and get around Android's reputation as not yet enterprise-ready -- Samsung is developing its own software, helping customers build their own app stores and reworking its sales operation.

Samsung already partners with Sybase and will also look at other strategic partnerships for device management functionality, he said.

He hinted at other enterprise-focused developments to come from Samsung. In addition to supporting security functions like AES, Samsung is partnering with companies including Cisco for VPN support and Citrix for thin client technology for tablets. Samsung plans to continue forming strategic relationships and hopes to develop capabilities that no one else can offer, he said. "We are progressing toward having something that is strategic from us from a software perspective," he said.
