New: Compare Leading ‘Unified Device Management’ Solutions at WhatMatrix!

Mobility has become an integral part of our personal lives and we see these consumer-driven approaches being pushed in to the Enterprise. The new reality is that multiple communication devices are no longer an “option”, they have become a common business need. A large portion of the information flow and collaboration activity now happens via small form-factor devices.
On the other hand we have the desire to consolidate IT operations and the need for consolidated device management. For IT vendors like VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, IBM and others, this market has become a significant business opportunity.

The recent industry focus on “unified” endpoint management is further driven by two primary enterprise platforms in use today: (Mac) OS X and Windows. OS X has had Mobile Device management (MDM) APIs for several years, but with Windows 10 Microsoft now provides similar capability to manage a variety of devices and form factors. The proliferation of devices and platforms drives the need for tools that are cable of managing the entire spectrum.

There are basically two types of management solutions available in the market today. The first one are products that have their root in Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), trying to leverage MDM APIs to also manage bigger form-factor devices like desktops and laptops. The other category are the more traditional device management products like Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager and IEM, that provide limited MDM on their own and rely on integration with MDM tools like Microsoft Intune & Airwatch.
