Enterprise mobility management (EMM) continues to be of strategic importance according to market analysts. A quick glance at the countless number of companies who have adopted EMM solutions will tell you the same thing – EMM provides the foundation the ability for companies to improve productivity through mobility.
According to the analyst firm 451 Research, the current enterprise mobility management market is made up of 125 vendors of all sizes. While this may be considered an overwhelming number of vendors, many of them are new entrants to the market and only a handful are well established. The established vendors, including SAP are championing the enterprise mobility management space, innovating to simplify mobility. The report The Top Five Enterprise Mobility Management Vendors, published in April 2015, identifies the companies that are leading the EMM field – and SAP is in the top five.
In order to make it into this lucrative top five, vendors must be actively working to address the growing needs of enterprises. 451 Research positions SAP as an early adopter and promoter of dynamic mobile solutions; the report states that over the last five years, SAP has “shifted its emphasis from device management to app enablement, which is ahead of the EMM market as a whole”. SAP is a company that has always prided itself on forging the technology trail, and its success with app enablement is based on the company’s broad enterprise application focus.
The words “SAP” and “integrated” can be found coupled together often in the report, demonstrating that SAP’s EMM offering is much more than just a stand-alone solution. The report says it best: “SAP’s emphasis on mobile has moved from stand-alone but integrated EMM and Mobile Application Platform to app development philosophy targeting all end points in the enterprise.” With integration to vital systems such as SAP Fiori, SAP HANA, SuccessFactors and Ariba, SAP’s enterprise mobility management offering is powerful and unrivaled. It’s easy to see why SAP is one of the top five EMM vendors.
