MDM (mobile device management) is an ever-increasing need in everyday IT professionals. We already talked about this in this post that explains better what is MDM. However, the world of technology does not stop evolving and when we think understand something, a new acronym emerges. A substitute concept that ends up being sprayed on the internet and sometimes causes us more confusion than clarification.
Today we will talk about EMM (enterprise mobility management) and explain this new concept, as well as its difference in relation to MDM (mobile device management).
To begin to understand this topic, you must first get to know the Gartner Magic Quadrant.
Gartner is a renowned US-based institute that has provided consulting services since 1979. His main activity is focused on technology-related research. These surveys present data related to the present market and trends related to the future market. Many executives from large corporations, located in the most diverse countries of the world, make strategic decisions based on the tendencies presented by Gartner.

Mobile device management is a system that allows you to manage the use of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, widely adopted by large companies that need to remotely monitor the use of their devices.
As mobile technology has become popular, today companies of all sizes already use equipment such as smartphones and tablets to perform their activities. Whether it’s equipping your sales force, your delivery team or specific trade-marketing actions, for example, mobility has become a key player in providing the vital dynamism of competitiveness. But soon in the first experiences, problems begin to appear. The device you purchased was designed to run the company-specific application and eventually some other apps, such as email and WhatsApp. In a technical analysis, its battery should last for a whole day, and memory should withstand needs. However, at the time of the operation battery drains faster than it is supposed to, the device starts to crash when the company’s application launches, the data plan that is supposed to support the entire month begins to burst, in addition to other problems.
So the complaints begin:
MDM (mobile device management) é uma necessidade cada vez mais presente no dia a dia dos profissionais de TI. Já falamos sobre isso nesse post que explica melhor o que é MDM. No entanto, o mundo da tecnologia não para de evoluir e quando pensamos compreender algo, surge uma nova sigla. Um conceito substituto que acaba sendo pulverizado na internet e, por vezes, nos causa mais confusão do que esclarecimento.
Hoje vamos falar sobre EMM (enterprise mobility management) e explicar esse novo conceito, bem como a sua diferença em relação ao MDM (mobile device management).
