Over the past decade, Google Android, Apple iOS and Microsoft Windows apps have helped the enterprise transform through a wide variety of use cases—enabling productivity and connectivity at any time, from any location, on any device.
What makes these devices so powerful are their apps—and managing them can be a cumbersome process. You likely have to manage dozens, perhaps hundreds, of enterprise applications across smartphones, tablets and laptops. You may be leveraging a Mobile App Management (MAM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution to deploy apps—however neither of those solutions provides access to the vital data surrounding their business impact.
Sizing Up Your App Gap
IT & Security leaders need metrics and analytics to understand what’s actually going on with their apps to improve their decision making, prioritization and future investments. The most meaningful data will divulge which apps are most popular, which are crashing, which are being opened and the duration they’re being used.
The app gap means you won’t be able to know which apps need attention, investments and resources. You won’t know if some apps are creating security issues. You won’t know which apps need to be canned altogether.
This lack of insight can cost you time, money and productivity. It can also make your organization less secure, and add incremental compliance headaches. It doesn’t have to be this way. With unified endpoint management (UEM), you can quickly and easily get your apps in gear.
Pull Your Head Out of Your Apps
Instead of broadly supporting all of your deployed apps, with the right unified endpoint management (UEM) solution, you can begin shifting your focus to the apps that matter most to your business. MaaS360 with Watson is the first AI/cognitive-powered UEM solution that also offers specialized views on app usage, performance and security. Using IBM MaaS360 with Watson Business Dashboards, you can analyze:
- App installs by platform, across manufacturers, and ownership models.
- App usage breakdowns such as installs, popularity, and session length.
- App trend information, including crashes, network requests, and data consumption.
And no other UEM solution offers the power of Watson to leverage additional insights that can improve security, reduce costs, improve app lifecycle management and simplify overall endpoint management.
