Azurati launches Gone Fishing, a new free HTML5 Out of Office notification app

Gone fishingHave you ever left the office to go on a business trip or on vacation and forgotten to set your Out of Office notification?  Azurati has come to the rescue with the immediate availability of a new free HTML5 application called Gone Fishing™!

Gone Fishing is available on any mobile device as an HTML5 mobile web application and allows users to set their Out of Office notifications in Microsoft Exchange, modify the Out of Office message and turn the notification off.

Azurati developed the Gone Fishing app as a sample mobile web application to be published into the Azurati Mobile Portal™, an HTML5 mobile application container that allows corporate users to access corporately approved mobile web applications securely from any mobile device.

Here are some details of how the Gone Fishing app works:

  • The user accesses the Gone Fishing app through the Azurati Mobile Portal in the normal way. And chooses the Gone Fishing App.

  • After the user enters their mail box address, the Gone Fishing app then retrieves their current out of office message status from the Exchange Server. The user can then choose to turn off or turn on/update their message. In this case I already have an out of office message which reads “Gone fishing”, I disable my out of office message and then set it to read “Gone fishing to Alaska”.

  • Once an out of office message has been set, the change happens immediately on the Exchange server as can be seen from the test e-mail below.  The Gone Fishing app can also be installed on the home screen, like other web apps.

  • The Gone Fishing app stores the user’s mail box in persistent HTML5 storage. This means that when the user next accesses the App, they don’t need to type in their mail box address again. The App also automatically retrieves the user’s out of office message status on start-up  The App also gives the user the ability to clear all the stored data.

  • Offline mode.  The App will run in offline mode, although because it relies on a connection to the server, all it’s functions are disabled.

  • However, the Gone Fishing app automatically detects when the status of the connection changes and the App is online again. At this point it will automatically retrieve the user’s out of office message status.

Azurati Gone Fishing app6

 

  • A new feature of this App is that is can automatically detect when a new version of the App is available on the Mobile Portal and it prompts the users to install the new update. This code can be added to other HTML5 Apps published by developers to the Azurati Mobile Portal container.

New year; new enhancements for Azurati’s enterprise mobility solutions

The development team at Azurati would even have impressed Santa’s Elves this Holiday season with the raft of new exciting innovations and enhancements that they have managed to roll-out to support our secure, cross-platform mobile enterprise proposition.

Today, we are excited to announce a number of new innovations that have not previously been available to any enterprise mobile users, which we hope will boost the adoption of HTML5-based mobile applications in the enterprise:

Azurati Mobile Portal
The Azurati Mobile Portal provides a new way for enterprise users to access HTML5-based mobile applications securely from any mobile device.  With the Azurati Mobile Portal, enterprise users are able to authenticate themselves once and then use the Mobile Portal interface as an HTML5 mobile application launchpad, enabling mobile apps to be launched with secure single sign-on.

Azurati Mobile Portal for HTML5 mobile applications

The Azurati Mobile Portal is great for both IT and the mobile user community because it provides a secure environment to access HTML5 mobile applications that can be centrally controlled (without needing expensive Mobile Device Management solutions).

HTML5 mobile applications are published to the Azurati Mobile Portal via the Azurati ASAP mobile application platform.

Azurati Apps
Azurati Apps are HTML5 applications that can be developed as cross-platform mobile applications from the ground-up, or as cross-platform mobile versions of existing enterprise software applications.

What’s more, for the first time, Microsoft SharePoint users who frequently access custom developed Web Parts in SharePoint, can create specific full-screen mobile applications from Web Parts that can be accessed via the Azurati Mobile Portal.  Examples of these may be Staff Contact lists, Product data lists, Company news and discussions, etc.

Azurati Apps

Azurati Apps can be developed to support Dynamic Offline access so that mobile users can continue to work and be productive even when Internet connectivity is lost.

Enhancements to Azurati V-Parts in SharePoint2Go
Azurati has made a number of enhancements to our V-Part architecture that now makes it easier than ever to convert custom developed SharePoint Web Parts and access them via Azurati’s cross-platform mobile SharePoint solution, SharePoint2Go.

If you find that the true value in SharePoint is not in its out-of-the-box feature set, but in the custom developed Web Parts and SharePoint apps (like Staff contact lists, project task lists, company news, BI reports, sales pipeline data, etc.), then for the first time, you will be able to continue to use these functions

Live editing of documents from SharePoint2Go
A common request from Azurati customers was the ability to edit documents from SharePoint2Go.  Up until now, this has been technically complex because of the fact that SharePoint2Go is a mobile web application.  However, we are pleased to announce a new capability that will allow live editing of documents from SharePoint2Go using Microsoft Office Web Apps on iPads.

The following screenshots show how this works (click images to view enlarged view):

1. Select document from library

2. Select Edit Document

3. Edit document in Microsoft Web Apps (this requires a valid user licence for Office Web Apps)

SharePoint2Go On-Premise deployments
We are pleased to announce also, that we are now able to offer On-Premise deployments of SharePoint2Go in addition to our standard Microsoft Azure Cloud option.  Enterprise customers who feel that they are unable to make use of Cloud-based services may install the Azurati SharePoint2Go server on internal servers behind the corporate firewall.

Navantis Joins Forces with Azurati to Elevate BYOD Offerings for SharePoint

Azurati announces a strategic partnership with Navantis Inc., a Canadian IT leader and 2012 Microsoft Global Partner of the Year (Canada).  Navantis will be offering Azurati’s SharePoint2Go® and enterprise mobile application platform to customers in Canada and North America.  The partnership will focus on offering customers SharePoint2Go®, a cloud-based service that represents a breakthrough in making Microsoft SharePoint simple, secure and accessible on any smartphone or tablet, while helping  businesses address the exponential growth of bring-your-own-device (BYOD).

Gartner has predicted that by 2014 “90% of organizations will support corporate applications on personal devices”.  Earlier this year, the Navantis Expert Series provided thought leadership around this trend when it hosted a series of BYOD events across Canada. The theme of the series was to educate IT and business professionals on the challenges raised by BYOD and to provide real solutions that are working today.  One of those solutions now includes SharePoint2Go®.

Built on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, SharePoint2Go® is designed to specifically address the concerns that organizations operating Microsoft SharePoint will face with respect to BYOD. Mobile security features are the heart of the SharePoint2Go® solution, making it one of the most secure mobile SharePoint solutions on the market today, providing a range of features unmatched by its rivals. Designed from the ground-up to offer a secure mobile deployment, SharePoint2Go combines ease-of-use, simple user interface and single sign-on, coupled with strong security features.

“As the top Microsoft Partner in Canada, we pride ourselves on delivering solutions for clients that solve business problems,” said Randy Lenaghan, CEO Navantis. “Part of our strategy is to select quality partners in the Microsoft ecosystem to jointly deliver unique value driving global competitiveness for our customers.  Azurati was chosen by our team after a rigorous and thorough validation process. We are excited to be working with them on several initiatives.”

The Navantis strategy of selecting best-of-breed technology partners to deliver outstanding results to their client community has resulted in significant industry recognition in the past twelve months.  This included being named as a winner or finalist for technology collaboration with best-of-breed partners at both the CDN Elite Awards as well as the Microsoft Canada IMPACT Awards for work at Direct Energy, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and PHO.

“We are delighted to be working with Navantis, one of the world’s leading Microsoft partners,” said Ronan Lavelle, CEO, Azurati. “Organizations are focusing more on their enterprise mobility strategies and we believe that it is vital that the mobile experience is feature and function-rich, rather than being a compromise compared to desktop applications. Navantis has the experience and vision enabling our technology to deliver value to the enterprise.”

Providing education, roadmaps and proven solutions for corporate IT enabling any computing device, smartphone or tablet access to the business without the worries of IT setup, support and security is a priority for both Navantis and Azurati.

This partnership combines Navantis’ experience and successful track-record with Azurati’s innovative SharePoint2Go® offering. Developing today’s most advanced IT solutions takes great partnerships with thought-leaders who share the same vision of empowering clients to exceed their goals.

• Corporate email
• Intranet (SharePoint)
• Social Collaboration

The use of mobile devices in the enterprise is increasing as companies permit multiple mobile devices as part of enterprise mobile or BYOD strategies.

Mobile is key to boosting Intranet user adoption and user engagement.

Is your business ready to support mobile working?  Does your SharePoint-based Intranet address the needs of your mobile staff.
