536 views

Published on

Mobile device management (MDM) provides the endpoint-focused processes and solutions for accelerating user productivity and device reliability. However, selecting an MDM platform that directly addresses an organization’s unique requirements and challenges can often be confusing given the diverse range of features and cost elements offered by competing solution providers.

These slides from Steve Brasen, managing research director at leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), reveal key results from the recently published EMA Radar™ on Mobile Device Management. In this side-by-side comparison of the 12 leading MDM platforms, solutions are empirically compared and graded against a broad range of measurements to objectively determine overall product strengths and cost efficiencies.
