For the second year in a row, Digital Management, Inc. (DMI) has been recognized in Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Management Mobility Services (MMS). The Bethesda-based company provides mobile enterprise solutions and services to federal clients and is positioned for its “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.”
According to Gartner, “MMS encompass the IT and process services provided by an external service provider (ESP) that are required to plan, procure, provision, activate, manage and support mobile devices, network services, management systems, mobile applications and application stores.”
This particular MQ includes smartphones, tablets and field service equipment that focus on corporate-liable devices and individual-liable users (as in BYOD programs). Gartner’s coverage of MMS is focused on the day-to-day management and support routines for mobility devices. In addition, MMS provides business process administration such as expense management and asset management and logistics.
“Gartner sees MMS as an important response to offloading the tactical management and support issues that many businesses are unable, or unwilling, to address for the rapidly expanding portfolio of smartphones, tablets and point-of-service devices,” said Eric Goodness, vice president of Gartner Research. “We are happy to see increasing maturity in this market as over the past year, vendors have improved both execution and vision to support corporate mobility for many small to large multinational companies.”
DMI founder and CEO Jay Sunny Bajaj had this to say:
“The explosion of mobile devices in the corporate environment intensifies the need for managed mobility services. Outsourced managed services enable enterprises to tap into specialized industry and technical knowledge, take advantage of economies of scale, reduce costs, and focus more tightly on core functions. We are proud to lead this industry, and are excited to again be included in Gartner’s Managed Mobility Services Magic Quadrant.”
