ASG Technologies Acquires Mowbly’s Process Mobility Platform
ASG Technologies, a provider of enterprise solutions for information access, management and control, has acquired Mowbly, a business process mobility platform company. According to ASG, the acquisition extends its enterprise information management capabilities with the introduction of business process management (BPM) capabilities and enables businesses to construct applications and processes from the perspective of a low-code agile platform with a mobile-first approach.
Mowbly’s approach to process mobility addresses the needs of modern businesses to deliver high-level user experiences while also “flawlessly” managing business processes, according to Charles Sansbury, president and chief executive officer of ASG Technologies. For ASG customers and partners, Mowbly’s process mobility capabilities will help ensure that these two critical elements will always be aligned, he added.
In ASG’s view, the consumerization of IT has set high expectations among the increasingly mobile workforce that now expects immediate access to information, applications and the processes that drive the business regardless of where they are working or what device they are using. In addition, IT organizations are looking to work effectively with the business users to seamlessly and securely deliver process-centric content and applications, accessible anytime and anywhere. This business need for real-time data and information marks the beginning of a broader wave of digital transformation underway in enterprises around the globe. According to ASG, organizations are continually seeking new ways to increase worker productivity and enable business process execution, but doing so quickly and in line with corporate policies represents a major challenge.
With the acquisition of Mowbly, the introduction of BPM capabilities will allow users to define, manage, and automate complex bi-directional processes, which are optimized for ASG solutions and can integrate with third-party systems and span multiple repositories. The company says that users will also benefit from workflow services, giving them the ability to quickly define and execute workflows tied to policies such as document review and approval in ASG Mobius as well as responding to changes to critical data elements in ASG Enterprise Data Intelligence.
The integration with Mowbly also supports agile application development, wherein customers and partners can rapidly build web and mobile applications (including ASG Workspaces widgets) utilizing a low-code approach and visual designer that does not require specialized skills. With the ability to build workflows, processes and applications that leverage the existing content, analytic and delivery capabilities of the current ASG product suites on an open platform, businesses will be able to efficiently and securely connect users with the information and processes they need across PCs, tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.
