App47 delivers an enterprise mobile application solution focused on enhancing the mobile user experience by uniquely leveraging a holistic mobile application lifecycle approach.

App47, an innovative provider of Mobile Application Management tools that allows enterprises to streamline and automate the entire mobile application lifecycle, emerged from stealth mode today to announce that it received $1 million in first-round funding from Valhalla Partners in January 2011 and will release App47 version 1.0 later this month.

App47 delivers enterprise Mobile Application Management tools and intelligence to optimize the mobile user experience and provides a powerful, integrated, lifecycle view of mobile applications and the entire mobile user experience—without compromising the privacy of enterprise data. Their cloud-based Mobile Application Management solution can be deployed in minutes, providing key analytics and performance data to assist in design, deployment, configuration, and security of mobile applications.

The visionaries behind App47, Chris Schroeder and Sean McDemott, earlier founded RealOps, the pioneer in enterprise management Run Book Automation solutions, which was acquired by BMC Software in July 2007. After recognizing a need for mobile enterprise app management solutions that didn’t require massive amounts of orchestration, setup, or configuration, the two have joined forces with Valhalla Partners once again to bring another innovative solution to market.

“App47 is the only mobile application solution focused on enhancing the mobile user experience by uniquely leveraging a holistic mobile application lifecycle approach,” said Chris Schroeder, Co-founder and CEO. “Our solution focuses on managing mobile applications, not devices, allowing enterprises to manage and automate highly complex, multi-tired mobility workflows. With App47’s powerful, context-aware tools and deep application intelligence, enterprises can ensure the best possible user experience for the mobile applications and unleash their true business value.”

“With overwhelming success of Apps in the consumer sector, the widespread adoption of enterprise mobile Apps is inevitable. We want to ensure that managing the mobile application user experience meets the essential enterprise needs,” said App47 Chairman and Co-founder Sean McDermott. “The App47 objective is to enhance enterprise mobility by providing the means to deploy mobile applications easily, manage their effectiveness, and analyze their performance via one solution, delivered from one source.“

Co-Founders Chris Schroeder and Sean McDermott will be participants at the Mobile Venture Summit (OnMobile 2011) June 15, 2011, taking part in an expert panel discussion centered around “How Tablet and Phone Apps Will Revolutionize the Enterprise” and at the Mobile Computing Summit on June 29, 2011, presenting “Real-Time Monitoring for Enterprise Mobile Apps”.
