HP introduces new service for the Microsoft ecosystem

HP has added Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) to its mobility portfolio.

This addition offers the channel a set of end-to-end, enterprise-grade services for the Microsoft ecosystem that will have HP service accountability. The market opportunity for EMS in the channel is for solution providers to enable customers to work seamlessly across mobile devices and PCs while helping IT manage the user environment and data security at the user level rather than at the device level.

Microsoft and HP already have an alliance partnership in place and both vendors believe this addition will build on the Office 365 and HP service delivery offering, by including EMS. Adding service delivery for EMS to HP’s Microsoft ecosystem offerings delivers a common management platform across multiple operating systems and devices, and using a common identity delivers capabilities such as single sign-on to apps, self-service password reset and rights management.

Mike Nefkens, executive vice president of HP Enterprise Services, said when deploying mobility and workplace solutions in the enterprise customers want a simplified, consumer-grade experience in an anytime, anywhere on any device scenario. By implementing EMS into an existing Office 365 environment it will enable customers to realize the full potential of both solutions while providing a lower cost on-ramp for Windows 10 upgrades in the future.

Scott Guthrie, executive VP of the Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group, said HP’s position as a Preferred Partner will help enterprise IT embrace the mobile-first, cloud-first world. By adding EMS to HP’s offering we’ll provide a simple and natural extension of the benefits already experienced by over six million devices currently managed by System Center Configuration Manager and HP Managed Desktop.
