Unified Endpoint Management: The Next Stage of Enterprise Mobility
Part 1: Evolution
The Evolution of Enterprise Mobility
Years ago, organizations adopted mobile device management (MDM). Then they moved on to enterprise mobility management (EMM). Today, as business requirements shift from connectivity to cross-platform innovation, organizations are thinking more broadly — and evolving to unified endpoint management (UEM).
Beginning of the millennium: connectivity: connect employees securely to corporate resources
Turn of the decade: productivity: improve productivity and enable secure mobile versions of apps.
Today and beyond: growth and efficiency: leverage modern mobile management to reduce IT cost and improve security for any endpoint—including desktops—for both remote/mobile and on-network users.
Part 2: Risks and pain points
UEM brings modern IT and user efficiencies
In the modern enterprise, mobility creates unprecedented challenges for IT and business leaders. Without UEM, these challenges pose significant business risks.
4 Reasons to adopt UEM today:
- Pain point: Legacy tools that don’t adequately support remote users and mobile workforces
- Risks: off-network devices that cannot easily be managed, leading to security risks and high IT costs
- How UEM helps: Keep all endpoints, whether in the office or remote/in the field, up to date and compliant with corporate policies with minimal IT involvement.
- Pain point: Siloed management and tools across mobile, desktop, and rugged/purpose-built devices
- Risks: Disjointed management leading to higher costs and inconsistent security across platforms
- How UEM helps: Use one unified toolset to consistently manage any endpoint and any app — from mobile-cloud to desktops and even the Internet of Things (IoT).
- Pain point: A lack of visibility across endpoints, apps, and user
- Risks: Reactive management and poor security
- How UEM helps: Leverage modern mobile management capabilities for real-time operations and compliance status, regardless of device location.
- Pain point: Locked-down devices with little or no self-service
- Risks: A poor user experience and high IT support costs
- How UEM helps: Enable a consistent user experience across endpoint devices. Support self-service processes.
