Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed and VPP
Qlik Sense Mobile Client Managed can be deployed using the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP).
The Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) is a service that allows registered organizations to purchase iOS apps in bulk. After making a bulk purchase, the organization receives redemption codes for each app bought. Those app codes can then be distributed to individual users, who use the codes to download public apps from the Apple App Store. Codes can be distributed to users through email, a web portal, or Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) software. Instead of pushing software and profiles out to devices, organizations can push licenses to devices while downloading apps directly from the Apple App Store.
Volume-purchased software and licenses can be distributed to users in the following ways:
- Email redemption URLs directly to users, which allows them to download and install the app.
- Post redemption URLs on an enterprise-hosted web page that is accessible only to authorized users.
- Use the Apple Configurator utility to push redemption codes to local connected devices. Note: Note that this method is only recommended for small work groups.
- Push redemption codes to remotely managed devices using EMM software to push redemption codes to remotely managed devices.
The Apple Volume Purchase Program allows businesses and schools to retain ownership of purchased apps, so apps can be reclaimed and redistributed as needed.
