8ENTERPRISE MOBILITY MANAGEMENT DefinitionEnterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is the collection of people, processes and technologies for managing mobile and tablet devices and related services to enable use of mobile computing for the business.Where Are We Today?EMM is an emerging discipline within the enterprise that has become increasingly important over the past few years as more workers are using and have brought smartphone and tablet computing devices and have sought support for using these devices in the workplace.The original software for Mobile Device Management (MDM) has evolved from a simple software solution to control a mobile device into a sophisticated platform for enabling the enterprise to deliver applications and mobile tools to their workforce.EMM is being delivered either as SaaS or as a traditional on-premise solutionTrendsBYOD is becoming more prevalent as a strategy, butEmployees are becoming more resistant to installing an MDM agent on their personal devicesThere is no clear market leader in the software arena, and service providers are immatureIndependence from Telco carriers is an important decision, adopt independence or not ?
9TELECOM EXPENSE MANAGEMENT (TEM) DefinitionTelecom Expense management refers to the systems deployed by a business to process, pay, and audit employee-initiated expenses. Expense management includes the policies and procedures which govern such spending, as well as the technologies and services utilized to process and analyse the data associated with it.Many research organizations like Gartner, Forrester and Aberdeen have mentioned in their reports that Telecommunications is the second largest non operating expense for most enterprises. But Telecom Expense Management is often overlooked, if followed diligently it can benefit organisations with more than 30% cost savings. Statistical analysis have often pointed out that telecommunications companies have more than 25% error on monthly bills which they send to their customers. Where Are We Today?TEM software is mainly being used for expense allocations, but not for expense managementTEM software is maturing and allows customised reporting, but must be fully integrated into the complete lifecycle of telecommunications to be effectiveAll the carriers are offering “partners” to provide TEM solutions, however, these partners do not have an incentive to decrease telecommunications costs and instead provide more of a reporting toolTrends?Many companies are implementing TEM software with the mistaken belief that it is a panacea for controlling run-away costs in the telecommunications category.TEM and MDM solutions are starting to overlap, with TEM solutions beginning to offer real-time tracking of mobile usage & costs. This real-time tracking offers facilities such as controlling roaming usage, end-user alerts, real-time tracking of device.
