Enterprise mobility grows in importance

Enterprise mobility is evolving from an option to a necessity, according to research from Reportlinker.com. Modern IT departments have the responsibility of supporting a wide range of devices on their networks, and they must be able to deliver multiple applications across many different software platforms.

"The mobile application management solutions assist IT managers to develop, deploy, integrate and distribute applications across the mobile ecosystem of the organization," the report states. "These solutions will help enterprises meet their mobility objectives and goals, while ensuring desirable ROI."

The report summarizes the main conclusions derived from Reportlinker's analysis of the North American mobile application market. It found mobile application management (MAM) is gaining importance because of productivity advantages that could be achieved by deploying software applications across mobile devices. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend and growing diversity in mobile applications are expected to drive the MAM market. The current trend of enhancing mobility has refreshed the demand for IT to focus on efficiency as it chooses management solutions - employees want seamless access to the resources they need to work.

Mobile device management: Keep apps user-friendly

Mobility adds business value by giving employees greater access to company data and resources, so it's important that MAM solutions do not erode this value by making life difficult for end users.

According to a recent ComputerWorld article written by a security manager whose name was withheld, the process of securing mobile devices on enterprise networks has evolved into remote management. The problem with traditional mobile security solutions is they can be unfriendly to the end user. Solutions that use "containerization," for example, store company data within a security application, instead of in email or document apps, to the consternation of some workers. New technology enables IT leaders to enforce password security and encryption policies, rather than having to put software on each individual device or limit access to sensitive data.

"Whether I decide to go on-premise or in the cloud, I'm definitely leaning toward the modern MDM approach," the article states. "So, having confronted the prospect of a growing number of mobile devices in my security plan, I'm probably going to be able to improve the end user experience and save the company money. That sounds like a win-win-win."
