Enterprise Mobility Management: Everything you need to know about MDM, MAM, and BYOD – by Brian Madden (2014)

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.
