VMware: Breaking Down Unified Endpoint Management
In the last decade, we moved from mobile device management (MDM) into enterprise mobility management (EMM), and now we’re shifting towards a unified endpoint management (UEM) model. You may be asking what exactly is UEM? In its simplest form, UEM is bringing together the management of mobile and laptop/desktop devices into one solution. This is something that hasn’t been entirely possible until just recently.
Today, at least a couple of different device management products often exist within the enterprise. At minimum, you will typically come across a solution that manages traditional desktops and laptops with an imaging solution and another that manages mobile devices via an MDM/EMM solution.
Our users have come to expect a more natural and consumer-like experience in the workplace. To meet their needs and provide a more efficient experience with the needed security, enterprises need to start their journey to UEM. A UEM solution is able to manage a device from the top down and able to manage a device “out of the box” with the original operating system (OS) on the device. This is a significant change from the traditional model of device imaging, a model that has historically worked, but a model that is ready to be disrupted and simplified.
So what can we expect from a UEM solution in the enterprise? Let’s take a look and break down the components we should expect to be available to effectively and efficiently manage all end-user devices within the enterprise.
