What is it and why is it important? “Enterprise mobile management” (EMM) is a term that describes the future evolution and convergence of several current mobile management, security and support technologies.
These include mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), application wrapping and containerization, and some elements of enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS). Such tools will mature, grow in scope and eventually address a wide range of mobile management needs across all popular operating systems on smartphones, tablets and PCs.

MDM Mobile Application Development
At last count, almost six billion mobile device subscriptions were held worldwide. There is no question that mobile device use is booming, and IT organizations are jumping onboard not only in adopting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies for the enterprise, but in taking advantage of the increase in demand for mobile applications. In fact, more than 300,000 mobile applications have been developed over the last three years.
The advantages of mobile application development are many custom applications can provide company-specific and targeted ways to improve business productivity and customer engagement, provide better customer service, and help organizations differentiate themselves from the competition. Additionally, some organizations develop their own internal mobile applications because they aren’t able to control mobile devices and their commercially-available applications or native operating systems (OSs) as tightly as is necessary. But if the organization creates its own applications, it can design in its choice of controls.
Since IT is already struggling with the challenges of managing an increasingly mobile infrastructure with ever-growing diversity and complexity while ensure the security of mobile devices and applications during the critical development phase? Multiple versions of mobile applications are typically distributed to employees’ mobile devices during the internal testing phase, adding layers of risk as well as complexity to the development process.
As a result of these shifts especially the move to employee owned devices from company-provided equipment it is more difficult than ever for IT to maintain control over the organization’s data, applications and upgrades. With the rise of BYOD, the power has shifted to the mobile device user, raising serious concerns in mobile application development environments, where the security of in-process enterprise applications is at risk.
