What is the Difference Between MDM and EMM? | EMM Expert

What is the Difference Between MDM and EMM? I virtually sat down Walter Paley, to get this EMM Expert’s thoughts: Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is the term for the comprehensive security and enablement platforms that are evolving specifically for mobility.  Mobile Device Management (MDM) is one of the facets within a complete EMM solution, providing a broader set of tools for IT.  These include the ability to require a PIN lock, identify and exclude jailbroken or hacked devices, and the power to remotely lock the device in case of loss.  While today’s EMM products feature more granular and less intrusive controls, MDM features remain an important foundational piece of mobile enablement. Big thanks to: Walter Paley, Marketing Manager at Bitzer Mobile I highly recommend following him in Twitter | @Bitzer_Walt For more information, see our (coming soon) EMM Comparison with more hints and quotes from top Enterprise Mobility Management – EMM Experts!...

EMM Comparison | What is (EMM) Enterprise Mobility Management?

EMM Comparison of 2013 | In Progress. EMM companies contact me via Twitter. Webster Dictionary has EMM listed as: Not Defined. So Enterprise Adoption is here to help! In the coming months we will be piecing together an Enterprise Mobility Management EMM Comparison. This will list all EMM companies, and be similar to Consumer Reports, but will be comparing EMMs. Best part is, with no dogs in the fights (we are enterprise app developers), we can provide an honest and unbiased EMM reviews and comparison. First lets look at Wikipedia‘s definition of EMM: Enterprise mobility management (EMM) is the set of people, processes and technology focused on managing the increasing array of mobile devices, wireless networks, and related services to enable broad use of mobile computing in a business context. This is an emerging discipline within the enterprise that has become increasingly important over the past few years as more workers have bought smartphone and tablet computing devices and have sought support for using these devices in the workplace. Now does this differ from MDM? The first term and more popular term used in mobility security. Yes, here is Wikipedia‘s thoughts on Mobile Device Management: Mobile Device Management (MDM) software secures, monitors, manages and supports mobile devices deployed across mobile operators, service providers and enterprises. MDM functionality typically includes over-the-air distribution of applications, data and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices, includingmobile phones, smartphones, tablet computers, ruggedized mobile computers, mobile printers, mobile POS devices, etc. This applies to both company-owned and employee-owned (BYOD) devices across the enterprise or mobile devices owned by consumers.[1][2] By controlling and protecting the data and configuration settings for all mobile devices in the network, MDM can reduce support costs and business risks. The intent of MDM is to optimize the functionality and security of a mobile communications network while minimizing cost and downtime.[3] With mobile devices becoming ubiquitous and applications flooding the market, mobile monitoring is growing in importance.[4] Numerous vendors help mobile device manufacturers, content portals and developers, test and monitor the delivery of their mobile content, applications and services. This testing of content is done real time by simulating the action of thousands of customers and detecting and correcting bugs in the applications. Companies are alarmed at the rate of employee adoption of mobile devices to...
