Unified Endpoint Management, The Velocity of Change From Mobile Devices to All Devices

Topics: Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Mobile Device Management (MDM) Unified Endpoint Management (UEM)

If there’s one thing we can count on in our fast-paced world, it’s change. The velocity of this change has been increasing in our technology-driven world and is showing no signs of slowing down. Change, in and of itself, is generally a positive force. Technology is constantly changing to help make us more informed, healthier, and lead better lives overall. It is evolving through AI and machine learning to become more helpful, more predictive of our needs, and make us more productive people. As a business, we want people to be more productive – productivity creates efficiencies which lead to profitability. These are all good things, but the high velocity of change in technology can create chaos for business – chaos in learning how to utilize and manage it.

This chaos, caused by the velocity of change, is where Vox Mobile thrives. We live in the chaos so you don’t have to. In business since 2006, we have seen everything. We started in the days of Good Mobile Defense and BlackBerry Enterprise Server 3, back when PIM (personal information management) was all the rage. Being able to receive email, contacts, and calendar on a mobile device was truly revolutionary! Fast forward 13 years, we now have the ability to manage more than ever dreamed possible.

While the software stack in order to manage devices has been called many things over the years – MDM, EMM and now UEM, the technical enhancements keep evolving. Through Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), we have the ability to give employees conditional access to corporate resources, including documents and applications through single sign-on, manage whatever device type they carry whether it’s a phone, tablet, or computer with a unified experience – and do all of this securely and easily with no hassle for the end user. UEM offers the ability to utilize one platform to manage all devices regardless of ownership model and maintain total employee privacy.

When looking at the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for UEM providers, in the Leaders quadrant alone we see a new software release on average of once every 9 days. That’s right – there is a new software release among one of the five providers every 9 days. If that isn’t enough chaos, when was the last time you actually read the release notes? How up to date is your deployment of Workspace ONE, or are you still running AirWatch? Have you looked to see what Identity Manager could do for your end user experience? Have you deployed MobileIron Core 10 yet? Have you looked at how Apps@Work could enable user access to corporate resources? Do you use Office365 and utilize Intune MAM yet? If you are suddenly concerned that you aren’t getting full use of your UEM, you’re not alone. Vox Mobile reads all of these release notes and understands how new and improved functionality can fit into your use case.

The velocity of change is high – let Vox Mobile help you in your digital transformation to embrace this change.
