DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4p7wwc/radar_for_mobile) has announced the addition of the "Radar for Mobile Device Management (MDM): Q1 2016" report to their offering.
Productivity with an increasingly mobile workforce is dependent on the reliability and performance of portable devices - including smartphones and tablets - to access and run business applications while still meeting business requirements for security and compliance. Mobile device management (MDM) provides the endpoint-focused processes and solutions for accelerating user productivity and device reliability. This Radar report identifies the sixteen leading MDM platforms and empirically compares and grades them against a broad range of measurements to determine overall product strengths and cost efficiencies.
The Scope of MDM
Mobile employees are only as productive as the devices on which they rely. Although enterprise mobile management (EMM) processes have evolved with the goal of abstracting business resources (including data, applications, and services) from the mobile devices (i.e., smartphones and tablets) hosting them, any argument that management of the physical devices is completely unnecessary is eminently naive.
At some point, something has to run locally on the devices to enable access to the business resources, and if that device or that point of connection should fail, it can profoundly impact the performance of the user. MDM includes the critical processes necessary to ensure user devices are able to optimally and securely access and run business resources without compromising enterprise requirements. MDM practices can be logically segmented into five distinct areas.
It is important to note that MDM practices are entirely device-oriented. For instance, while the administration of an enterprise software catalog or the security hardening of enterprise data access points may be important characteristics of a broader EMM approach, they are not device management activities, and are therefore outside the scope of MDM. Some bring your own device (BYOD) features - such as containerization and virtualization - do directly impact the device and are therefore technically a part of MDM. A prime assumption in the MDM Radar evaluation is that all managed endpoints are dedicated to performing business tasks.
