Over the past few years, more and more employees have been demanding to do work from mobile devices like iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets. Back in days when BlackBerry dominated the market, dealing with mobility was easy for companies. But today's Android and iOS devices aren't so easy to manage, and the tasks that employees want to do with them far more advanced than what they did in the BlackBerry days.
The enterprise mobility management (EMM) industry has responded with technologies like mobile device management (MDM), mobile app management (MAM), mobile virtualization, app wrapping, “containerization,” and mobile file syncing. All this technology is new, and it’s evolving rapidly. The stakes are high: Thanks to the consumerization of IT, if a company doesn’t figure out how to deal with mobility, users will bring in their own phones and tablets and do whatever they want anyway.
“Enterprise Mobility Management: Everything you need to know about MDM, MAM, and BYOD” is your guide to figuring out how it all works.
In this book, you'll will learn how MDM really works, what it does well, and what its limitations are; why IT’s mindset has to evolve from locking down devices and networks to making data and applications accessible in a safe way; why the real challenge isn’t personal devices, but mixing work and personal apps and data on a single device, regardless of whether they’re personally-owned or corporate-deployed; how mobile app management works, and why (despite challenges) it may be the best approach for keeping corporate data secure; and how future developments could affect approaches to enterprise mobility management.
This book is for people who have been tasked with “figuring out BYOD.” It’s for companies who have only dealt with BlackBerry and BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) for years and want to know what’s next. It’s for desktop admins and architects who are now tasked with delivering applications and data to new platforms. And it’s for the mobile managers who were happy with BES for the past ten years and now have to deal with users bringing in iPhones.
