Forrester has released their latest report on Enterprise Mobile Management, which includes scoring for 11 key providers and how they stack up against one another:
IBM, AirWatch by VMware, MobileIron, citrix, And BlackBerry Lead The Pack
Forrester’s research uncovered a market in which IBM, Airwatch (recently acquired by VMware), MobileIron, Citrix, and BlackBerry lead the pack. Soti, Good technology, Microsoft, SAP, and Sophos offer competitive options. Landesk lags behind.
Infrastructure and Ops professionals are focused on application management, security, and Unified Device Management (UMD)
The enterprise mobile management market
is growing because more infrastructure and operations professionals see mobility as a way to address their top challenges. This market growth is due in large part to the fact that I&O pros increasingly trust Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) providers to act as strategic partners, advising them on top mobile transformation decisions.
Data, App, And Unified Device Management are key differentiators
as mobile device management (MDM) technology becomes outdated and less effective, improved app and data management will dictate which providers lead the pack. Vendors that can provide a combination of data, app, and unified device management position themselves to successfully deliver a productivity and security solution to drive workforce enablement for their customers.
