The enterprise mobility management (EMM) market will grow from $3.8 billion in revenue this year to $9.6 billion in 2018. That’s a compound annual growth rate of 22 percent.
So says the team at 451 Research.
“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.”
They can be used individually, in parallel or in tiers across a mobile environment. 451 Research sees these as important toolsets adopted by the enterprise and as critical enablers of future mobile computing.
451’s forecast is based on a new report that presents data generated via a bottom-up analysis of 125 vendors that participate across the six EMM segments that the research firm tracks.
