Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is evolving beyond its original scope of mobile device, app, and content management
For many analysts, Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platforms that will succeed in the short term, and survive long term, must meet all of today's enterprise mobility requirements and be in position for the UEM/IoT future.
As key vendors, we have Blackberry, Cisco, Citrix, Huawei, IBM, Ivanti, Jamf, Microsoft, MobileIron, SAP, Sophos, SOTI, VMware, and Zoho.
New IDC MarketScape which evaluates Enterprise Mobility Management Software Providers reveals that
- EMM vendors generally meet most requirements of today's enterprise mobile device and application management functions across the most relevant mobile operating systems (Apple iOS and Google Android).
- Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) capabilities in EMM platforms are mainly focused on Windows 10 management, although legacy Windows PC OS support is available by some EMM vendors. Mac OS management is growing, as well as Google's Chrome OS.
- IT buyers looking at EMM software today are looking closely at solutions with future UEM and IoT capabilities in mind.
