Enterprise Mobility Management to Control Mobility Chaos and Lower TCO 78%

EMM Emerges as Essential Tool for Control of the Full Mobile Lifecycle

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) -  Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), has just released its latest study Enterprise Mobility Management: Optimizing the Full Mobility Lifecycle. With 98% of enterprises currently or intending to implement mobility initiatives, gaining control of the potential chaos created by the influx of new mobile platforms and devices, the invasion of employee-owned mobile devices used for work purposes, and new mobile software applications becomes paramount.

"Like Masters of their Mobile Universe, top-performing organizations take control of their mobile ecosystem as if their business depends upon it," said Andrew Borg, senior research analyst, wireless & mobility, Aberdeen. "With new devices such as iPhone 4 and the HTC EVO entering the workplace, mobility management can no longer remain a peripheral issue -- it must become core IT now."

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) enables organizations to adapt rapidly to new mobile platforms, enforce compliance to IT standards, control access to corporate data networks, and secure mobile endpoints at their points of vulnerability. The recent trend toward re-consolidation of mobility under IT management indicates the evolving maturity of enterprise mobility as core infrastructure, essential to remaining competitive in today's global economy.
