NEW YORK, USA: 451 Research, a pre-eminent information technology research and advisory company with a core focus on technology innovation and market disruption, expects the Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) market to grow from $3.8 billion in revenue in 2014 to $9.6 billion in 2018.
EMM, defined as a set of tools that include mobile device management, mobile application management, mobile email container applications, mobile application platforms, mobile back-end as a service (MBaaS) and mobile virtualization, can be used solo, in parallel or in a tiered fashion across a mobile environment.
451 Research sees these as important toolsets adopted by the enterprise, and as critical enablers of future mobile computing. As enterprises increasingly adopt EMM, we believe this will lead to a market CAGR of 22 percent from 2013 to 2018.
"EMM is moving from tools that control mobility, to instrumental elements that enable productivity for a growing number of mobile-enabled employees," said Chris Hazelton, Research director for 451 Research’s Enterprise Mobility channel.
"Mobile apps in the enterprise are growing in importance and are the key to driving business transformation, and EMM will play a key role in putting these apps in the hands of users. As companies move from a reactive to a mobile-first strategy, EMM technologies will be the foundation for any deployment.”
