The Case for MDaaS: Businesses Facedown Workspace Challenges with Next-Gen Mobility Management Services

This IDC Market Perspective describes the market need for a mobility management service offering called mobile device as a service (MDaaS). This document discusses how some enterprise mobility management services market solutions are evolving to meet this need. This document provides a definition of MDaaS and characterizes what service providers should consider as they shape the features of the offering."For businesses with the desire to have a third-party procure and manage smartphones and tablets for their employees, being able to handle this as one bundled operating expense can be ideal," said Denise Lund, research director, Enterprise Mobility at IDC. "While this is not ideal for every single mobile device in a business, it is a natural and much needed complement to the mobile device managed services offers that don't wrap in the hardware and connectivity services fees, thus more appropriate for employee-owned mobile devices used at work."
