What:

Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, EMA
Kimber Spradlin, Product Marketer, Endpoint Manager, IBM

Why:    
Endpoint management systems that unify security and IT operations management have demonstrated their value in eliminating redundancies, closing gaps and reducing costs. Today, however, something new is challenging even the most flexible management systems that deliver these values. That disruptive factor is the growing presence of increasingly capable mobile devices in the business – a factor complicated by personnel who bring in their own devices, expecting to access sensitive enterprise information assets.

Recent EMA research demonstrates that:

Second only to email access, security capabilities are the most important aspects of mobile device management among organizations today.

57% of businesses prefer mobile device management that extends their enterprise IT management investments.

Of these, more than half expect to manage mobile devices with an enterprise management platform that includes mobile device management capabilities, rather than forcing their preferred management investments to integrate with MDM-specific third party tools.

Attendees will be invited to participate in the public beta of IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices for hands-on experience.

Attendees will also receive the complimentary EMA White Paper IBM Endpoint Manager: Reaping the Benefits of a Unified Approach to Security and IT Operations Management.
