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 now seen as a strategic platform for managing a wide range of enterprise endpoint computing devices, and the apps and data these endpoints access," says Phil Hochmuth, program director, Enterprise Mobility Research at IDC. "Unified endpoint management — combining mobile management functions with PC and laptop client devices — is an emerging requirement for EMM platforms. EMM software is also extending into some IoT device management use cases, where smart connected devices run standard mobile operating systems."
