Globo included in Ovum’s EMM Solutions report
PALO ALTO, 26 September 2014 – Globo Plc(LSE-AIM:GBO), the international provider of enterprise mobility management solutions and software as a service, is delighted to announce that it has been included in Ovum’s 2014-15 Decision Matrix for EMM Solutions. Globo has been evaluated and recognised as a major “Market Challenger” amongst the top 11 EMM vendors and close to the “Market Leaders” space.
Ovum’s definition for a complete and competitive EMM solution goes beyond Mobile Device Management (‘MDM’) and Secure Container capabilities and includes the following components:
· Mobile Device Management (MDM)
· Mobile Application Management (MAM)
· Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP)
· Network Access Control (NAC)
· Identity and Access Management (IAM)
· Telecoms Expense Management (TEM)
“The demand for cross-platform mobile management has created a fast growing and extremely competitive market for EMM solutions”, said Richard Absalom, Senior Analyst Enterprise Mobility at Ovum. “We are tracking over 70 vendors offering some form of EMM capability. Globo offers a well-rounded, end-to-end EMM solution, and is one of very few vendors to offer five out of six of our defined components. It combines strong MDM, containerization and MAM features with a proprietary MADP, offering an interesting choice for enterprises looking for a single solution delivering each of these EMM components.”
Additional inclusion criteria for vendors to be included in the report were:
· The product solution has over 200 unique enterprise customer deployments
· Direct Ovum clients have shown particular demand for the solution
· The solution has been commercially available for over 6 months
Globo was rated with top scores and parity to the “Market Leaders” in key execution measures including enterprise fit and scalability, as well MADP within the technology analysis.
Overall, Ovum assesses the EMM market to be relatively immature, with significant room to grow as EMM increasingly becomes a priority for enterprise IT, and a more mainstream component of the overall IT solution stack.
Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, CEO of Globo commented:
“This report is another achievement for Globo. It recognises the fact that we continue to deliver on our complete EMM solution, strengthening our position in the industry. The uniqueness of the integrated product with EMM and MADP capabilities and the recent acquisitions of Notify and Sourcebits further underline and reinforce our product and commercial edge in the EMM market”
