IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Unified Endpoint Management Software for Small and Midsize Businesses 2022 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of providers offering unified endpoint management (UEM) software through the IDC MarketScape model, with a focus on the SMB market. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for UEM software. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses each vendor relative to one another, and the framework highlights the key factors that are expected to be the most significant for achieving success in the UEM market over the short term and the long term.
"SMBs across all industries are adopting sophisticated endpoint device use cases and deployment models, targeting the same level of efficiency and productivity as larger firms," says Phil Hochmuth, program vice president, Endpoint Management and Enterprise Mobility at IDC. "At the same time, SMBs look for greater levels of integration, automation, and product portfolio from the UEM technology suppliers. Vendors targeting this market must take into account these additional needs."
