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.
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.
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.
