First came mobile device management (MDM), a way for companies to remotely configure and control mobile devices to provide employees with basic resources for work. Then, enterprise mobility management (EMM) evolved in response to the demand for increased access to corporate data and business-critical applications.
Now, unified endpoint management (UEM) affords companies a simpler and more sophisticated way to manage every endpoint. Now, if you aren’t even considering UEM, you’re already behind.
Exactly what is UEM? How does UEM work, and how are companies using UEM to push the boundaries of device management? Download our newest whitepaper now for a comprehensive overview of UEM—what it is, the benefits, essentials for true UEM and how it works for your business.
Yes, you’re in the mobile-cloud era, but let’s face it, laptops and desktop computers are still a keystone of work technology. For employees, this mix of mobile devices and desktops often means an inconsistent end-user experience. For your IT organization, this means more pressure to support a growing mix of devices and operating systems—and typically with separate tools for mobile devices, desktops, legacy devices, emerging technology and more. These technology and IT silos make efficiency and security all the more challenging across your massive device ecosystem.
But what if you could introduce rapid, automatic, self-service and on-demand capabilities for IT—and improve end-user engagement and productivity? These are a few of the gains to be made with the rise of UEM.
“UEM emerged as a way to address these pain points by extending the concepts of MDM and EMM beyond smartphones and tablets. UEM became a reality with the release of Windows 10, which allowed IT to manage desktops and laptops over the air in the same way we’ve become accustomed to managing mobile devices. However, UEM is platform-independent by design. It provides a universal platform for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. This ensures that end users have the same consistent experience regardless of what device they use to access the corporate environment.”
