Ready or not, the global mobility trend is forcing enterprises to enable a mobile workforce with business productivity tools on any device, regardless of the underlying operating system. As mobile users increasingly demand the ability to use their own devices for everything personal and work-related, IT is quickly losing control over end-user technology decisions. Enterprises can no longer ignore this reality, especially given the explosive global demand for mobile devices. According to IDC, “the worldwide smartphone market reached a new milestone in the second quarter of 2014 (2Q14), moving past the 300 million unit mark for the first time in its history.” IDC also found that BlackBerry shipments were 78 percent lower than the previous year, which followed three consecutive quarters of sequential decline. It’s clear: The heyday of the locked-down corporate device is over.
How can organizations prepare for what’s coming? Rather than avoid or deny the mobility juggernaut, this guide is designed to help enterprise leaders securely empower mobile users to achieve business transformation. Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is a comprehensive solution that helps organizations support a multi-OS environment that allows employees to use their preferred devices to access corporate apps and data while meeting critical security and compliance requirements. The three components of EMM — Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM), and Mobile Content Management (MCM) — help provide a secure, scalable, and enterprise-ready architecture that puts the user experience first.
