General-purpose PDAs and ruggedized enterprise mobile computers serve different markets and functions, and also vary by size, weight and materials. But the biggest difference is their total cost of ownership (TCO).
Learn how to become an enterprise mobility Mowglie. In today’s completely connected mobile jungle, many users and employees are accessing information from multiple devices and from many locations. Enterprise mobile management tools are becoming a must have for most businesses to survive and deliver an optimal experience. The MaaS360 suite from IBM allows for a robust app development platform where users can become mobile Mowglies and increase portability and interoperability. Download this e-book to create a failsafe Enterprise Mobility Survival Guide and build the best mobile environment for your users and employees.
In Forrester’s 25-criteria evaluation of enterprise mobile management (EMM) vendors, we identified the 11 most significant EMM providers — AirWatch by VMware, BlackBerry, Citrix, Good Technology, IBM, Landesk, Microsoft, MobileIron, SAP, Sophos, and Soti — and analyzed their offerings. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals select the right partner for their enterprise mobile management.
Today's enterprises support an assortment of end-user devices, including laptops and desktops (both PCs and Macs), tablets and hybrid devices, and, of course, smartphones. Not only do employees use a variety of form factors, but they run a variety of platforms on those devices, including:
Apple iOS and Apple macOS
To complicate the situation further, they run different versions of those platforms for example, Microsoft Windows XP SP3, Microsoft Windows 10 or anything in between. In addition, IT is being tasked more and more with managing and securing wearables, ruggedized devices and the Internet of Things (IoT).

With consumer use of smartphones growing by the day, it's no surprise that users are taking them into the workplace as well. Thousands of people already use their personal smartphones for work-related tasks like checking email and calendars when they're away from their desks. And many wish they could do more with their smartphones, given their myriad functions and applications.
With 2.5 billion employee-owned mobile devices in the workplace today, enterprises are struggling to capture the business benefits while bracing their IT infrastructure against data breaches and a deluge of mobile traffic. A new study reveals that the most mobile-savvy organizations are employing specific best practices, including mobile planning, integration, optimization and management to achieve mobile infrastructure maturity.
The ubiquity of mobile devices is transforming the ways that business gets done in today’s world. IBM has the services that can help go beyond supporting devices to achieve a flexible, powerful mobile enterprise.
Mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets, enable increasing numbers of employees to work "anywhere, anytime."The security of enterprise data is a key concern, particularly on mobile devices that are easily lost or stolen. The security risk is further heightened by the proliferation of employee-owned mobile devices in many enterprises. Employees will almost always take the path of least resistance in leveraging mobile devices for business purposes, which may lead to unsafe computing practices. A clearly documented and enforceable mobile security policy is critical to reducing the risk of data loss.
This paper explores how companies can more safely introduce employee- or corporate-owned mobile devices into the work-place, identify the risks inherent in their broader access to corpo-rate data, and derive enhanced business value.
This report details the results of a survey taken from pre-qualified IT decision makers from North America and Europe, and shows how AirWatch by VMware received the highest scores for EMM vendor promise and fulfilment. 950 surveys were completed.
When selecting an enterprise mobility platform, organizations should not only look at current mobile needs but also consider an extended roadmap that includes any future plans to develop apps, extend more business processes to mobile or expand collaboration with the extended enterprise. To prepare for a mobile-centric world, organizations today need a platform that is flexible, that scales, and that they can grow into as opposed to growing out of.
As enterprises embrace adoption of Microsoft Office 365 to drive productivity by using the latest mobile applications and alleviate the complexity and costs associated with on-premise Exchange environments, achieving a balance between security and user experience is often difficult. In this 60-minute webinar, discover how VMware AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) easily integrates with both Office 365 and VMware AirWatch Identity Manager to optimize user experience and ensure data is secure across all devices and platforms. An AirWatch expert will give an in-depth demonstration of the advantages of deploying Office 365 with VMware AirWatch, as well as conduct a Q&A session.

Is your company using Office365? Are you concerned that your enterprise mail is not protected on mobile devices? Do you want to secure your data instead of managing devices? Download the datasheet to learn in depth approaches to addressing these challenges.
In June 2016, VMware interviewed 575 VMware inner circle customers and partners with the goal of collecting Windows 10 insights and IT perspectives from global enterprise, commercial, and SMBs. This flipbook reveals the five key trends that were discovered for Windows 10 adoption and migration. Unified endpoint management (UEM) with Windows 10 and VMware takes these trends into account and gives customers the ability to unify desktop and mobile management under one model.
IT organizations are largely siloed between the desktop and mobile management worlds. IT has addressed management of mobile devices with modern enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions. However, Windows desktops have been managed separately using older PC lifecycle management (PCLM) technologies, which have fallen short of basic IT and end user expectations of today’s evolved, mobile-cloud workforce.
The VMware AirWatch® Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution is a single, platform-independent approach for managing every device and every operating system across any organizational use case. The solution combines traditional client management requirements with modern EMM efficiencies enabling IT to deliver OS policies, patches, and apps over-the-air. Cloud-first management with instant push technologies and self-service capabilities ensure lower cost management, better security, and peak user experience regardless of the device being used to access the corporate environment.
With Windows 10, Microsoft introduces a consolidated operating system (OS) platform that changes how organizations treat the management of End-User Computing (EUC) environments. This new way of managing Windows is more closely aligned to the enterprise mobile management (EMM) based approaches found in mobile management tools today.
This whitepaper provides an overview of how Windows management evolved from a rigid and disruptive PC-centric approach to one offering a flexible and light-touch model. It will also delve into the specific management technologies that Windows 10 introduces, as well as leveraging conventional Windows management tools that are in use today.
Enterprise mobile capabilities ideally complement, protect, and enable market-leading mobile applications to improve workforce productivity and intelligence and enable increased sales performance as a result. After a number of years of considering the relative value of various new devices, mobile device management (MDM) paradigms, development methodologies, new services, and new connectivity models, retailers are ramping up investments in enterprise mobility. Rugged devices can be part of this business outcome-centered approach, adding enterprise mobility to deliver great experiences and comparatively reduce the economic cost of doing so — importantly, doing so with continued ease in supportability, excellence in performance, and consistency in usability. Retailers are continuing to invest in deployment of secure ruggedized mobile devices for many reasons that are explored in this white paper.
