Today, managing mobility is not just confined to embracing the bring your own device (BYOD) or corporately owned, personally enabled (COPE) concepts in your enterprise, or which device platform or operating system you use. The focus has shifted to more advanced strategies that enable enterprises to become connected and reach a new level of agility through digital transformation.
While the modern enterprise mobility management landscape has transformed significantly, it has also brought about more complexities.
Employees now work from locations all over the world, access data from various data centers and share this data not only through corporate networks, but also through cloud services and APIs. Because of this sense of globalization and the advent of cooler and more convenient mobile devices, enterprises started adopting mechanisms that consider all these factors in their infrastructure in order make their employees and their company as a whole more productive.
This made device management not only about managing, securing and storing device data. It’s now about making mobility management part of the entire enterprise ecosystem. This means you need to think about broader aspects like governance, analytics, and identity provisioning. Such a system needs to
- Be extensible enough to support all devices and operating system types.
- Have a plug-in model that allows you to integrate with other tools (such as analytics and governance tools) existing in your environment.
- Be able to moderate, approve and provision applications through a corporate app store.
- Produce analytics dashboards, audit trails and reports to supplement business strategies.
- Have comprehensive policy management and enforcement functionality with capabilities such as compliance monitoring, containerization, data encryption and password enforcement.
