IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software 2017 Vendor Assessment

By: Phil HochmuthProgram Vice President, Enterprise Mobility

Abstract

This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of providers offering unified endpoint management 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.

"Enterprise PC and mobility management control are consolidating into a single IT function as the line blurs between mobile and traditional endpoint computing activities and device form factors," says Phil Hochmuth, program director, Enterprise Mobility Research at IDC. "Enterprises are just now starting to deploy unified endpoint management with the goal of consolidating multiple configuration, provisioning and management systems, and unifying policy and security enforcement across all end-user computing devices — from smartphones and tablets to PCs and laptops and everything in between."
