Analyst Perspective: The Breaches Prove It: Enterprises Have A Long Way to Go on Mobile Security

Publication date: July 2018

News seems to break every day that yet another digital security breach has hit another unsuspecting enterprise, whether by hack or human error. It’s clear that organizations of all types – and perhaps especially those focused on mobile endpoints – have a long way to go when it comes to security. This report addresses the gaps and provides guidance for organizations working to shore up management of their mobile security practices.

Analyst Perspective: The Telematics Revolution – and the Vendors Leading the Way

Publication date: July 2018

Every new technology starts out scattered, relying on different standards, form factors, implementation approaches and so on. Telematics has proven no different – except it now has reached the point where it can and should be moved from a decentralized to a centralized model for ease of management and insight. This report discusses ways to streamline a telematics strategy and achieve more impactful business outcomes through informed and thoughtful telecom management tactics.

Analyst Perspective: ITAD: The Mobile Asset Black Hole and How to Fix It

Publication date: July 2018

Mobile devices have existed in the enterprise for 20 years – sitting somewhere in your office is one of those first PDAs or pagers or phones, or several generations of them. This report discusses ways the telecom management department should exert full control over the end-of-life processes within the business, and the measures to take to ensure device security from end to end. ITAD providers have evolved to process this old equipment, but getting it to that point poses the bulk of the challenge for organizations.

Analyst Perspective: The Biggest Risk to Enterprise Cybersecurity? The Employee

Publication date: July 2018

Cybersecurity remains a top challenge for enterprises. After all, mobility management only goes so far in its ability to plug holes and prevent data leaks. Building on The Breaches Prove It: Enterprises Have a Long Way to Go on Mobile Security, this report looks at the biggest risk enterprises face: employees. Whether through unintentional or malicious means, staff can all too easily be the reason an organization loses confidential, sensitive data and finds itself in a perilous situation. Therefore, enterprises will want to put in place as many measures as possible to prevent that – and be equipped to handle fallout when human behavior slips past controls. This report discusses those measures and issues.

Market Landscape: MMS Market Landscape 2018

Publication date: July 2018

Mobility continues to create new levels of diversity and complexity within the enterprise, prompting enterprises to consider how managed mobility services (MMS) vendors are meeting their requirements. Relying on enterprise feedback gathered specifically for this decision-making guide, AOTMP Research’s 2018 MMS Market Landscape highlights the top problems organizations want to solve now and over the next few years, and the vendors whose capabilities they say provide the best match. This report does not rank vendors. Enterprises will want to use the information to assess current, and any pending, choices; vendors will want to evaluate their strengths against the competition and gauge possible areas of opportunity.

Market Landscape: TEM Market Landscape 2018

Publication date: July 2018

Even though mobility, in particular, continues to create new levels of diversity and complexity within the enterprise, fixed and wireline assets remain crucial to an organization’s technology-fueled success. Indeed, overseeing telecom management with agility and insight has grown more imperative to an enterprise’s capacity to achieve business goals such as increasing market share – and that will not change. Organizations therefore must consider how TEM vendors are meeting their requirements. Relying on enterprise feedback gathered specifically for this decision-making guide, AOTMP Research’s 2018 TEM Market Landscape highlights the top problems organizations want to solve now and over the next few years, and the vendors whose capabilities they say provide the best match. This report does not rank vendors. Enterprises will want to use the information to assess current, and any pending, choices; vendors will want to evaluate their strengths against the competition and gauge possible areas of opportunity.

Analyst Perspective: What is a Smart City Today and How Should It Be Managed?

Publication date: August 2018

The future of technology distracts from the technology being deployed today. This report explores the technologies in use now in cities across the world that bring connectivity and real-time solutions to age-old problems. Whether to facilitate easier parking or more fun, cities are adapting their infrastructure to support the connected world. This report further speaks to telecom management considerations, including best practices, as smart cities take hold.

Analyst Perspective: Is Mobility as a Service Right for Your Enterprise? Assessing the Capex vs. Opex Proposition

Publication date: August 2018

As Blue Hill Research, a division of AOTMP Research, discovered in 2017, every 1,000 devices take up two to three full-time equivalents within the enterprise. That adds up to labor costs of up to $246,000 each year. Thus, for some organizations, relying on third parties to provide all aspects of mobility management makes sense. But how is an enterprise to know whether mobility as a service is the right choice? This report provides those evaluation points so organizations can manage their mobile environments as effectively as possible.

Analyst Perspective: Ways CIOs and CISOs are Addressing User Behavior: Cybersecurity Use Cases

Publication date: August 2018

Following on The Biggest Risk to Enterprise Cybersecurity? The Employee, this report analyzes how CIOs and CISOs are approaching user behavior to prevent breaches. Peer-level insight, combined with AOTMP Research recommendations, will help fellow enterprises understand and adopt best practices to management to help avoid compromises to security.

Analyst Perspective: IoT Use Cases and Management Considerations in the Transportation Industry

Publication date: September 2018

Who doesn’t have a lost luggage nightmare story? It’s a rhetorical question that needs no answer. What it does need is a solution, and this report discusses the various solution in development and deployment. IoT is changing how capabilities and services affect the transportation industry, in particular – think ride-sharing, airlines or shipment-tracking as just some examples. This report digs in with enterprises and vendors to explore current and new IoT use cases and subsequent management approaches in the transportation sector.
