The mobile enterprise management software market is hot right now, according to a recent press release from International Data Corporation. The growth is discussed in the press release, “IDC Defines New Market and Conducts First Industry Study on Mobile Enterprise Management Software,” which states that mobile enterprise management software revenue totaled $444.6 million in 2011 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 31.8% over the 2012-2016 period.
The press release shares insight on the developing climate of MEM software:
‘Consumerization has brought new challenges to the enterprise in terms of how they must think about managing and securing devices and the sensitive corporate information on those devices’ said Stacy Crook, senior analyst, Mobile Enterprise Research at IDC. ‘The mobile enterprise management software market represents a category of mobility offerings that address the requirements of enterprises — that need solutions for both corporate- and employee-owned mobile devices — and users.’
To keep up with the worldwide exponential growth, an insight enabling infrastructure with support for specific mobile applications is needed. Enterprises now are presented with the task of dealing with mobile devices along with traditional IT systems. This increased functionality is available from companies like PolySpot, which specialize in business and search based applications.
