The main growth driver for the global EMM market will be the shift from enterprise client-server computing to mobile applications and devices (both corporate-owned and BYOD). The report said that EMM’s role will expand in enterprises as IT organizations address challenges of securing and managing increased usage of mobile devices, apps and data.
“EMM is on the verge of taking over many traditional IT management and security functions in the enterprise as more applications and business processes move to smartphones and tablets,” says Phil Hochmuth, director, Mobile Workforce Strategies at Strategy Analytics.
EMM’s role will expand to the Internet of Things (IoT) as well, said Strategy Analytics. Enterprises will look to EMM as a management and provision platform for all types of connected devices — from tablet-enabled point-of-sale machines and kiosks, to more broad IoT deployments across a range of industries, where the connected devices are based on smartphone hardware and software.”
