AirWatch Becomes a Leader in Gartner MQ for EMM
As Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) becomes a hotly contested market, we are seeing some excitement in this ecosystem with more vendors coming forward, and expansion of offerings in the major players. Gartner has just released their Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Mobile Management which features all of the players in this field with some very interesting pros and cons from each.
AirWatch – VMware Dabbles in EMM
With the purchase of AirWatch recently by virtualization leader VMware, we saw some very interesting views on what that new relationship was going to mean. Since VMware has its own variety of VDI and application virtualization, the addition of AirWatch into the portfolio could really be a powerful marriage of workforce mobility, and security.
Long standing leader in the field MobileIron is seeing some strong competition from AirWatch, so it will be interesting to see the growth in features for AirWatch, and its plans under new parent VMware to grow their market share and product capabilities.
