E-Handbook: Unified endpoint management systems harness upsurge in devices Article 1 of 3

Orchestrate the endpoint management strategy of your dreams

At first glance, a wedding seems fairly straightforward: ceremony, dinner, dancing. But as my fiancé and I plan our own wedding, we're discovering that there are so many more factors at play. At which table do we seat Aunt Ruth? When do we send out invitations? Do we include small children? How are we going to pay for all this?

A wedding planner is starting to sound like a necessary resource.

Similarly, as endpoint devices in the enterprise start to add up -- from laptops and PCs to IoT sensors and wearables -- it becomes nearly impossible for IT pros to juggle everything on their own. That's where unified endpoint management (UEM) comes in. Like a wedding planner, UEM attempts to simplify the complicated. Endpoint management systems combine the capabilities of enterprise mobility management, mobile app management, security tools and more to ensure that devices work well together.

In this handbook, learn why endpoint management systems have become important in today's IT landscape. In the three features that follow, we'll discuss the current state of the UEM market and how to develop an effective endpoint management strategy. Like wedding planning, it's tough work -- but the end result is well worth it.
