  • Smith Micro Software, Inc. (SMSI) Dubbed Specialist In Emerging Enterprise Mobile Management Software Market 0 comments
    Feb 5, 2013 2:55 PM | about stocks: SMSI

    Smith Micro Software, a leading provider of wireless and mobility management solutions, was recently recognized as a Specialist in the 2013 Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Mobile Management (EMM) Software. Focused on managing the increasing array of mobile devices, wireless networks, and related services, EMM aims to enable the broad use of mobile computing in a business context. Smith Micro was recognized for employing a standards-based approach to EMM and its scalable platform, which combines device connectivity, user management, and network optimization.

    "EMM is an emerging, holistic approach to managing mobile devices that incorporates and transcends mobile device management (NYSEMKT:MDM), mobile app management and other software for managing mobile assets," commented Mike Anderson, President and Co-founder, Aragon Research Inc. "One thing vendors must do is to recognize the expansion into EMM, and shift their focus from MDM price to overall mobile management to align with the requirements on enterprise short lists. The companies we discuss in our Aragon Research Globe are forward thinkers when it comes to helping the ecosystem with the new best practices approach found in today's complex enterprise environments."

    Smith Micro's EMM solution makes use of the company's strong heritage, supporting mobile carriers and device manufactures with an Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) standards-based device management platform currently being made available to large enterprises that are in need of a scalable solution. With a client-server-portal application that enables companies, especially those with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies, Smith Micro's EMM platform empowers their mobile workforces from one central console. The company utilizes carrier- and device-agnostic controls, which allows IT organizations to manage mobile workers, devices, applications, and network connections. The EMM platform enforces policies to optimize network utilization, enables seamless, secure connectivity between devices and wireless networks, and prioritizes access points. The platform is also extremely customizable, employing API's which can be integrated into other mobility solutions.

    Doug Louie, Senior Director Product Marketing at Smith Micro, stated, "Mobile device management has received plenty of attention in the past year, as BYOD policies have gained traction within organizations. However, MDM is just one part of a total mobility strategy - connectivity, security and network optimization cannot be overlooked. Our EMM solution leverages many years of experience serving Tier One wireless operators, which requires a highly-scalable, standards-based design that simplifies mobility and reduces customer support costs. We're honored to be included in the first annual Aragon Research Globe report, and look forward to helping our enterprise customers truly transform their operations through EMM."
