Gartner’s annual Magic Quadrant report for Mobile Device Management was recently released, and we’re pleased that the analyst firm positioned SAP as a Leader in this report (get a full copy of the report here). The report tracks the Mobile Device Management (MDM) market, and also takes a look at Mobile Content Management and Mobile App Security capabilities to address a company’s broad enterprise mobility management needs. SAP is also placed in the leader’s quadrant of the Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP) magic quadrant, making us the only vendor leading in both critical areas.
According to the MDM Magic Magic Quadrant report:
- Growth in smartphones, tablets and BYOD is driving adoption of MDM
- Many companies see the MDM platform as the main tool to both implement and manage a mobile solution
- Leaders demonstrate balanced progress, effort and clout in all execution and vision categories
If you are looking to manage and secure your mobile enterprise, there are many different approaches to consider – it could take weeks to sift through the huge list of players in this space, and a degree in acronym-decoding to understand what each vendor’s technology does. Vendors in this complex ecosystem all claim that their approach is the best, but how do you know which is the right approach for your business?
Looking at the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a great place to start.
This is increasingly important topic for the majority of our customers. Security comes up in almost every conversation I have with customers and partners – and it has been an issue that has slowed down some mobile deployments as companies struggle with adopting BYOD and figuring out how to go mobile. The Gartner report can help you sort through it all and look at vendors that may work for you.
To help you with your efforts we’ve been working hard at SAP to put together a webinar with Bill Clark. This session provides guidance to help understand how to evaluate the right combination of mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), and mobile content management (MCM) tools for your organization. We’ll discuss the Gartner report and have a panel discussion and conversation on secure enterprise mobility.
We’ve got two great webinars available to help you on your journey.
