VARs Cash In on Mobile Device Management
There is no doubt that one of the biggest mobility trends of 2011 will continue into 2012. Forrester Research predicts more than 77 percent of organizations will support Google Android and iOS devices next year.
So far, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend has been both a blessing and a curse for businesses.
On the one hand, there are significant cost savings as well as worker satisfaction and productivity associated with BYOD. On the other hand, it’s been a nightmare for IT professionals looking to batten down the hatches against security breaches.
Still, it’s a boon for managed service providers, who stand to win by providing the cure to those security headaches. Research from IDC predicts the MDM market will reach $405.3 million in revenue by 2013.
