MEM market was earlier had two distinct segments which include mobile device management enterprise software (MDM) and mobile application management software (MAM).

With organisations are managing both mobile devices and mobile applications, the market has become merged into a single market called mobile enterprise management software.

MEM market now includes products that offer standalone MDM, standalone MAM, or combined MDM-MAM functionality.

MAM applications are those ones which allow IT organisations specific mobile applications to be managed, secured, and distributed for policy compliance of individual applications.
