This IDC Survey presentation highlights results from the 2018 Enterprise Mobility Decision Maker Survey: Software, with a focus on enterprise mobility management (EMM), unified endpoint management (UEM), and enterprise mobility security technologies. This Survey presentation also shows trends in technology partner preferences among enterprises with regard to enterprise mobility projects, as well as differences among enterprises with strong usage of a single mobile OS type.
"Mobility management and security challenges are growing for a number of reasons in the enterprise," says Phil Hochmuth, program director for enterprise mobility at IDC. "The proliferation of mobile devices in the enterprise — from general smartphones used by employees to single purpose and workspace IoT endpoints deployed in specific business functions and use cases — creates new and complex device configuration and data security scenarios. Businesses are addressing these issues with a range of software platforms and point products, with increasingly sophisticated integration and interoperability requirements."
