As mobile devices become more powerful, so too must mobility management tools evolve to address their new capabilities. For many companies, mobile devices are now a necessity, and having a solution to secure and control devices in your infrastructure is essential. Mobility management tools have long evolved beyond providing simple mobile device management (MDM) features, with enterprise mobility management (EMM) and unified endpoint mangaement (UEM) adding new features and compatibility. To help evaluate where the mobility management space is headed, it helps to watch the vendors who promise to deliver exciting developments in 2020.
