I have heard a lot that Unified EndPoint Management (UEM) is the way forward to provide a seamless experience between mobile, desktop and laptop. I'm assuming this must tightly couple with Identity Management.
Both MS (Enterprise Mobility Suite) , VMWare (Workspace One) and Citrix (Xen products) seem to be pushing this concept hard. BlackBerry are also joining in the game with their BlackBerry Dynamics suite and UEM servers, saying all solutions need to be device agnostic.
Can someone explain the base concept here? I understand that we'd want the following securely across all platforms:
However, in terms of the applications how will this work? Each app must be optimised for the device? Only Microsoft seem to have a full suite of apps across all devices. For example, taking Microsoft Outlook, only MS can offer MS Outlook on a mobile device, the others have their own equivalents of this (Boxer, BlackBerry Work, Xen Work for example). Same with MS Word and so forth,
