Driven by the rise in adoption of bring your own device
The growth of BYOD and mobile consumerisation is expected to boost enterprise mobility management (EMM) applications until 2017, according to a report from Strategy Analytics.
According to the report, personal-liable user model is being accepted by enterprises and the volume of BYOD devices is expected to increase in the coming days.
With growing trends of the multi-device OS enterprise and associated challenges, the report anticipates that it will give a boost to the enterprise mobility management applications.
Strategy Analytics mobile enterprise strategies senior analyst and author of the report Gina Luk said that the vendors from a range of IT security and services backgrounds are now converging on the MDM space with the aim of taking a significant share of this market.
"It is no longer purely the domain of specialist enterprise mobility vendors who are strongly positioned in terms of core technical capabilities," Luk said.
Strategy Analytics Enterprise Research executive director Andrew Brown said, "There is room for the MDM market to grow further, but even with its phenomenal growth, there are too many vendors for the market to sustain them all, and we expect to see considerable consolidation during the next 12 to 24 months."
