As the enterprise mobility landscape becomes more complex, with more devices and operating systems than ever before, organizations are turning to Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) as a solution. When leveraged correctly, UEM can lower costs, improve employee satisfaction, and simplify the process of device and application provisioning.

Enterprise Mobility Exchange surveyed its audience in July 2018 and found that only 11% of organizations adopted UEM. By November 2018, that number jumped to 18%, and by April 2019, it reached 25%. That means over the course of nine months, UEM adoption in the enterprise more than doubled!

“The real catalyst for UEM is absolutely going to be migration to Windows 10,” said Eric Klein, director of enterprise mobility and connected devices at VDC Research. “It's mainly due to the fact that Windows 10 can be managed more like how a modern day mobile operating system should be able to be managed. Microsoft has essentially augmented and iterated their OS strategy as such to make Windows 10 a more modern managed platform.”

Of course, adoption to UEM is easier said than done. There are many challenges to adopting this, such as finding a suitable vendor, configuring roles within IT, and the inability to let go of legacy technology. Enterprises must find a way to overcome these obstacles in order to harness the potential of UEM.
