Significant advancements in mobile technology have instigated a new generation of uses for devices ranging from mobile phones to tablets and now tablet PC’s. Users now have access to fully fledged workstations at their thumb taps. Market researcher Canalys predicts mobile device shipments of 2.6 billion devices by 2016 with smart phones compound annual growth rate increasing at a rate of 18%.
This revolution has already taken shape in the way that users are conducting work driven activity on personal and company owned devices. Corporate information and applications are no longer limited to a single location or dedicated PC. This shift in work flow has seen an increase in productivity but also brought about challenges involved in managing, controlling and securing these devices.
Whether a midsize business (SMB) ranging to the larger enterprises or even the scholastic environment, a mobility management solution is crucial to address these issues while also supporting and cultivating an increase in user productivity.
What to Look for in a Mobility Management Solution?
With mobility management fully matured from a concern into a core IT service, IT administrators need a robust, scalable and future proof solution to tackle the associated challenges.
Mobility management solutions typically combine mobile information management (MIM), mobile application management (MAM) and mobile device management (MDM) methods to exercise control over connected devices. MIM deals with informational concerns such as which network and email accounts devices have access to, while MAM restricts which applications users are allowed access to and MDM handles the enrolling, managing and locking down of devices.
In addition, Device Management enables businesses to address challenges that relate to the registration and management of large numbers of devices easily, efficiently and from a central management console. Location Management facilitates a businesses’ ability to know where devices are currently located, where they have been and where they should go next. Application Management is needed to deploy, monitor, remove and secure applications on connected devices. Email Management tackles the complexities associated with the deployment of email accounts and also aims to restrict data leaks. Lastly, BYOD Management allows employees to use their own devices for work related activity by implementing a BYOD policy, separating corporate and personal data.
