"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."
