Google has made it very clear that it wants Android to dominate the enterprise market and to help further this goal the company has launched Android for Work. This program was announced back at I/O 2014 but is just now launching to help more companies start bringing Android devices to the workplace.
Over a billion people today carry Android smartphones—devices that are more powerful than the computers we used just a few years ago. For many, these phones have become essential tools to help us complete important work tasks like checking email, editing documents, reviewing sales pipelines and approving deals. But for the majority of workers, smartphones and tablets are underutilized in the workplace. Their business and innovation potential remain largely untapped. Today we’re announcing the Android for Work program to tap into that potential. With a group of partners, we’re helping businesses bring more devices to work by securing, managing and innovating on the Android platform.
