Enterprise Mobile Unveils Suite of Service Offerings to Help Organizations Assess, Pilot and Deploy Microsoft Mobile Device Manager

Solutions Help Organizations at Various Stages of Mobility Deployments Leverage the Device Management and Security Capabilities Available through MDM and Windows Mobile(R)

Enterprise Mobile (www.enterprisemobile.com), experts in managing the complete lifecycle of a Windows Mobile deployment within the enterprise, today announced the availability of a full suite of service offerings designed to help organizations migrate to and/or deploy Microsoft Systems Center Mobile Device Manager (MDM). A key partner in Microsofts MDM beta program, Enterprise Mobile has amassed a wealth of technology and implementation experience helping organizations deploy strategic enterprise mobility programs on MDM. This unsurpassed level of experience and insight was instrumental in the development of Enterprise Mobiles unique MDM service offerings.

As the number of mobile workers continues to grow, companies are striving to achieve and maintain control over their workforces mobile devices. While realizing the benefits of a Windows Mobile device deployment, enterprise IT managers also worry about how to manage and secure these devices in a way that protects sensitive data, network access and other valuable corporate assets. With its comprehensive suite of service solutions, Enterprise Mobile can provide organizations enhanced on-device security, over-the-air policy enforcement, simplified centralized control and VPN connectivity.

Leveraging proven best practices and methodologies, Enterprise Mobile works with organizations to plan, implement and manage mobility initiatives that address the needs of end users, IT and the enterprise as a whole. Enterprise Mobiles three distinct MDM services address key challenges:

  • MDM Assessment For companies considering MDM, Enterprise Mobile works with IT to create a lab environment in which to assess MDMs capabilities
  • MDM QuickStart This proof of concept service for 10 to 20 pilot users tests a proof of concept of an MDM pilot within a controlled environment
  • MDM Go Live Enterprise Mobile works with an organizations staff to install MDM in a production environment at designated sites/servers and provide ongoing lifecycle services

Enterprises can choose the full suite of MDM services, or select the service(s) that best suit their organizations unique device management and mobile communications challenges. With support from Enterprise Mobile, MDM is designed to resolve pain points before engaging in a full Windows Mobile deployment.

The MDM Assessment phase allows enterprises to source infrastructure requirements across the organization and learn best practices for device management from Enterprise Mobiles Mobility Consultants, who have extensive experience deploying MDM. The second phase, MDM QuickStart, involves a 10 20 user pilot which enables the evaluation of a variety of mobile device form factors and a thorough understanding of MDM features and deployment recommendations to gather an organizations requirements for their mobility strategy. Finally, in the MDM Go Live phase, Enterprise Mobile on-site technical resources draw on knowledge gained in large-scale rollouts to ensure a speedy and successful deployment.

Enterprise Mobile was instrumental in designing and deploying Microsofts System Center Mobile Device Manager software at Northern Ireland Civil Service, said Jim Duffy of Northern Ireland Civil Service. Thoughtful planning and a well-designed test program allowed us to be one of the earliest adopters of this new technology.

Before an organization continues down a blind path of an enterprise-wide mobile deployment, they should consider the same factors that would be part of a PC and desktop management strategy like security, regulatory compliance and remote access to information on corporate networks, said Mort Rosenthal, chairman and CEO of Enterprise Mobile. Enterprise Mobile supports the Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager and helps organizations at any phase of their mobile deployment achieve a seamless implementation, and ensure ongoing management of each device connected to the network.
