It’s time to pump up enterprise mobility management (EMM).
Since the advent of BYOD, IT departments have had time to do little more than catch their breaths. Accommodating the steady flow of mobile endpoints into the enterprise – both corporate issued and employee owned – has increased complexity and pushed IT into a defensive posture, where it has remained for much of the past few years.
It’s impossible to overstate the importance of making sure that a diversity of mobile endpoints has access to corporate information without compromising security or user experience. But while IT has been busy reacting to an influx of smartphones and tablets, more meaningful mobility management tasks have been neglected or taken up by so-called shadow IT entities. Those tasks include:
• The mobilization of existing business processes and meaningful mobile app development
• Mobile app life cycle management
• Modern content enablement and protection
