Mumba appears in the Australian Financial Review
Mumba has been featured in the AFR this month with an article titled "Mumba gears up as mobile app demand rises." The article highlights our recent successes as mobility continues to grow within Australian enterprises.
Angelo Demasi from Boston Consulting Group mentioned in the article that "this market is definitely growing" and he expects enterprise demand for mobile apps to double in the next three years.
Accenture, Australia's mobility leader Abraham Sahley said that he expects mobile applications to become a normal part of enterprise technology however he believes the expense is currently a deterrent.
Most interestingly, the industry pundits have identified the precise issues that Mumba is currently tackling regarding the costs of development and ongoing ownership. In fact next month we are releasing our report that details the 'total cost of ownership' for an enterprise business app. Please contact us if you would like early access to this report.
Mumba launches in ISS Facility Services
The team has been very excited this month to launch the Mumba app in ISS Facility Services.
The roll-out to date has been very well received as site locations are coming online around Australia. The roll-out should be completed with all 13,000 ISS staff in Australia having access by the end of the year.
The ISS app includes notifications, latest news, employee self service profiles, roster integration with Kronos, payslip data from Chris21 and leave requests from Kronos and a manual leave process.

Mumba was at Dockercon in Seattle this month
Greg Keys, our Head of Engineering attended Dockercon in Seattle to discuss topics around micro-services and scalability in the cloud.
Greg hobnobbed with industry experts including Adrian Cockcroft from Netflix fame - who were all very impressed with our technology stack.
Some of the key learning's from the conference include advanced techniques to achieve containerisation so that our micro-services can be easily deployed in swarm clusters with in-built redundancy. We're also looking at using signed containers to verify that we only deploy containers that are cryptographically approved.
If you are interested in using micro-services within your business then please contact us to discuss how we can be of assistance.
