Description

Monitoring and managing a global IT network and security infrastructure is no small task-particularly once organizations adopt digital technologies and begin deploying new mobile and analytics applications. However, the technologies and business models that are foundational to digital transformation are evolving quickly and are providing service-oriented vendors with an opportunity to move up the value chain with their customers. But, when it comes to mobilizing workforces, small mobile-first vendors (<500 employee firms) who specialize in managed mobility and telecom management regularly win new business over large and established IT service providers who offer similar services.

This report integrates selected findings from VDC's recent survey of mobile decision-makers in both midmarket and enterprise organizations. It contains a comprehensive competitive assessment of the strategies, products, and capabilities of leading players that participate in delivery advanced mobility and telecom management services. (Full survey data is provided as a separate Excel spreadsheet.)
