The role of enterprise content management (ECM) as a centralized document repository is well established. However, the value of ECM increases exponentially when it is leveraged as an information hub between line-of-business (LOB) systems to facilitate key processes, keep data in sync and maximize investments in existing applications.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatchģ's leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
