Mobility Management Made Easy

With the heavy adoption of mobile devices such as laptops, iPads and smart phones, managing your mobile environment has become more critical as well as challenging. Some SAM tool providers are focusing on how best to manage mobiles and have developed tools to make Enterprise Mobility Management, and the ITAM Manager’s job, a whole lot easier.

Some SAM tool providers are focusing on how best to manage mobiles and have developed tools to make Enterprise Mobility Management, and the ITAM Manager’s job, a whole lot easier.

What exactly is Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)? EMM is the set of people, processes and technology focused on managing mobile devices, wireless networks, and other mobile computing services in a business context. EMM tools are used for provisioning, auditing, tracking, reporting, enterprise data protection and support.

From an IT Asset Management perspective, the ITAM Manager needs to track the physical assets and applications that are installed on the devices, control the versions of the applications, ensure the data is secure and manage software compliance.

Eracent envisioned the need to develop a solution for EMM and as a result provides two approaches that enable you to see everything in your mobile environment as part of your organization’s overall asset portfolio.
Approach #1: If your organization requires a comprehensive EMM solution

Eracent Mobility Manager™ offers a broad range of functionality and is based on the leading IBM MaaS360® platform. IBM MaaS360 with Watson Mobile Device Management gives you visibility and control of iOS, macOS, Android, and Windows devices from one unified cloud platform.

Approach #2: If your organization already utilizes another EMM tool such as AirWatch, MobileIron, Microsoft InTune or Blackberry Enterprise Mobility Suite (Good Technologies)

Pre-configured Eracent Data Extractors (EDEs) make your mobile device and application data from these tools available for management and reporting alongside data about your server and desktop assets and software. So, no matter what EMM tool you are using, the EDEs will bring in the information you need so that you will have a single pane of glass view from a hardware and software standpoint. This consolidated access point permits more accurate reporting of all assets that are owned and being utilized, and it makes tasks like refresh planning and budgeting easier as well.

Many organizations have tools in place and do not necessarily need a highly sophisticated solution for managing their mobile environment. However, Eracent Mobility Manager™ provides flexibility and the best of both worlds – the option for full EMM, or to use the tools you have in place and extract the data into a single view within Eracent’s IT Management Center™ (ITMC) system.
