Frost & Sullivan: MDM Evolves to Wider EMM Focus - Integration of Enterprise Communications and M2M Communications the Next Stage of Evolution

~ Australian MDM market expected to be worth $ 51.6million in 2016

SYDNEY, Sept. 2 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Demand for device management applications are driving the Australian Mobile Device Management (MDM) market. MDM solutions are becoming a necessity for organisations looking to integrate mobile devices into the workplace. The high adoption rates of MDM solutions is mainly due to the market growing from a small base combined with an increase in the use of employee owned devices in the workplace. In 2013, major vendors also experienced a spike in the number of large scale deployments, causing the market to record over 95% growth from the previous year.

Audrey William, Head of Research, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan ANZ

Frost & Sullivan's latest report, Analysis of the Australian Mobile Device Management (MDM) Market 2014, forecasts strong growth for mobile management solutions in the next 2 to 3 years. This will be mainly driven by an increase in mobile devices within work environments and the resulting focus from organisations to integrate mobility with their overall collaboration. The MDM market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 32.0% from 2013 to 2020, and is expected to be worth $ 51.6 million by 2016.

Audrey William, Head of Research, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan ANZ says, "Employee requirements are becoming more complex and integrating existing applications is becoming increasingly important for organisations to achieve greater employee collaboration and productivity. Organisations will look for a wider range of functionality from their mobile management platforms, resulting in a shift away from pure MDM solutions to wider Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions. This growth in the EMM market is expected to significantly impact the MDM market in Australia with solutions needing to be bundled with EMM solutions in the future."

Among the key factors driving the MDM market are employee driven trends such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and uptake from traditionally conservative verticals such as the Government and Healthcare sectors. As organisations from these sectors begin to adopt mobile devices to extend the reach of their communications and collaboration solutions, MDM vendors and channel partners will have significant opportunities to propel future growth.

The MDM market is currently highly consolidated, with the top three vendors; AirWatch, MobileIron and Good Technology accounting for most of the market share. However, a number of new players are set to grow their market share in Australia. Among the new entrants, Citrix and Microsoft are well positioned to significantly increase their market share, and pose a major competitive threat to established vendors. In the next three to five years, the number of players competing for a share of the MDM market will increase significantly as device manufacturers, specialised mobility management vendors and security vendors grow their presence in the market. As vendors develop a niche through their respective areas of expertise, the overall MDM market will become more fragmented.

MDM vendors have expanded their presence and increased their market share in the MDM market through strategic acquisitions. Citrix's acquisition of Zenprise in 2013, and VMware's acquisition of AirWatch in 2014 enabled these vendors to secure a foothold in the market. Citrix and VMware have the opportunity to leverage their expertise in desktop applications and virtualisation solutions to address the growing demand for integrated mobility solutions, thereby offering organisations a greater breadth of functionalities. As a result of their large customer base and strong MDM capabilities, Citrix and VMware are well placed to further expand their market share in Australia.

In the long term, a trend that is expected to have a major impact on the MDM market as the integration of mobile devices with wider enterprise communications and Machine-2-Machine (M2M) communications. Anand Balasubramanian, Industry Analyst, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan ANZ, says, "Many mobile devices already have Near Field Communications (NFC) capabilities enabling functions like contactless payment and information exchange. As MDM evolves to a wider EMM solution, managing interactions between a range of connected devices will be a key requirement for the platform. M2M communications is still at a nascent stage of growth, and is a key component of wider Connected Living solutions, which includes smart communication within enterprises, homes and cities. As this long term trend gathers momentum, it will attract a number of new players into the MDM and EMM market, altering the competitive dynamics."

Beyond 2016, the EMM market will undergo significant changes as a number of technology vendors enter the market. The growing demand for converged communications, where a single dashboard enables organisations to manage a huge range of devices beyond smartphones and tablets, will be a major factor driving this shift. As sensors and integrated chipsets enable intelligent devices to interact with users, vendors specialising in M2M communications will gain a foothold in the EMM market. In addition, cloud-based models will offer organisations the ability to manage devices and user profiles from any location, thereby placing smartphones and tablets at the centre of the ecosystem.

The future EMM market will evolve into fully integrated enterprise communications solutions that leverage the capabilities of cloud computing and M2M communication technologies. M2M solutions of the future will enable users to interact with a range of objects including cars, home appliances (air-conditioning units, lighting systems etc.) and enterprise mobility devices, thereby offering huge opportunities for growth for vendors and channel partners.
