The Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) market has evolved considerably over recent years and is more competitive than ever before. The EMM software market will grow to 1.8 billion in 2017, representing total year-over-year growth of 9.0%.
Over the next five years, the market is expected to continue stable growth, reaching $2.2 billion (€1.86 billion) by 2022 according to Strategy Analytics’ latest reports, Global Enterprise Mobility Management Vendor Revenue 2016 and Forecast (2014-2022), and State of the Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) Market – 2016 Market Leaders and 2022 Forecast.
EMM platforms are evolving from tactical device management tools to broader unified end-user computing management (UEM) platforms, crossing mobile devices, apps, and data, as well as traditional computing platforms such as laptops and PCs. As mobility grows in the enterprise, EMM solutions will become centralised control points for how employees and devices connect to enterprise data and IT resources.

An enterprise that does not use EMM effectively may find it challenging to justify to authorities why it did not technical measures to mitigate the risk of data loss in cases of a breach, especially when the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation will go live in May 2018”, added Andrew Brown, executive director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics.
