This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of providers offering enterprise mobile mobility management (EMM) software through the IDC MarketScape model. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for EMM software. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses how each vendor stacks up to its peers, and the framework highlights the key factors that are expected to be the most significant for achieving success in the EMM market over the short term and the long term.
"EMM is evolving beyond its original scope of mobile device, app, and content management," says Phil Hochmuth, program director, Enterprise Mobility Research at IDC. "EMM is extending into unified endpoint management — combining EMM functions with PC and laptop client devices, from both a company-owned device and BYOD perspective. EMM platforms are also extending to non-traditional connected endpoints, such as wearables, digital signage, kiosks, and other IoT-related scenarios such as connected offices and workspace. 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."
