German information communication technology(ICT) developer eves_IT AG, which has been operating its support centre in Sri Lanka, is looking to expand and diversify its presence in the country with the change of regime.
“We want a deep footprint here with the coming of the new government,” eves_IT AG CEO Ralph Schmitt spoke during the launch of its DME mobile app in Sri Lanka.
The company is a notable player in the current hot topic of mobile security and Schmitt said that it will work to gain a significant market share in Sri Lanka.
He said that eves_IT has already conducted meetings with mobile network providers to develop applications and to resell the existing ones.
“We also want to enter new markets like travel and tourism,” he added, while saying that the global support centre operating under its subsidiary eves_Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd would be extended to a 24/7 service.
He noted that the company has invested 150,000 Euros a year for the past five years in the operation run by a staff of 17.
eves_IT provides a multitude of ICT solutions, including mobile security, business intelligence, app development, framework and tool development and project management.
The DME app allows the employees of a company to use their personal devices or company-provided devices to access online and offline Enterprise Resource Management systems securely from anywhere.
“Employees demand online data and apps for mobiles and offline data too… but most companies only care about giving a mobile,” eves_IT IT & Mobile Solutions Head Jorg Giffhorn said.
He expressed that companies had been operating under the assumption that ‘bring your own device’ or BYOD meant ‘bring your own disaster.’
“All employees will have three to
five devices by 2016. Currently it’s one to two phones but more will be coming,” Giffhorn said.
He added that the BYOD strategy has shown an increase in employee productivity due to the freedom of their product choice and said that the DME software and the accompanying G/On software for PCs
were developed to ensure the security of corporate information.
“It’s great for working from home without a company laptop. There will be no residual info on the home laptop. It will be erased,” Giffhorn spoke of the G/On service, which comes in a dongle.
