Telstra Eyes Enterprise Mobility Growth With New Acquisition
Telstra is looking to enterprise mobility expansion, entering an agreement to acquire enterprise mobility solutions provider MSC Mobility.
Telstra has today advised that it expects the transaction to complete in the coming weeks, with the move to further expand its enterprise offerings, following the telco’s recent acquisition of Readify.
MSC provides mobile device management and provisioning services for large organisations, with its Enterprise Mobility Management platform incorporating mobile device management software such as AirWatch and MobileIron.
MSC is Telstra’s largest enterprise mobility management partner, having already partnered with the telco for a decade.
Telstra states the acquisition will enable it “to build on this existing relationship that manages the end-to-end enterprise mobility life cycle, including valuable reporting and analytics that help customers drive better business outcomes”.
“This acquisition is an investment capturing the fastest growing segment of the enterprise mobility market: managing the supply of apps, content and mobile services to enterprises,” Telstra executive director global products Michelle Bendschneider commented.
“To achieve our growth aspirations in enterprise mobility, we need to develop our customer relationships from a holistic mobility view, rather than just what sits on their device or tablet.
“By acquiring MSC, we can now work with a customer’s entire enterprise mobility experience and can manage it through one unified platform.”
