Gallup’s 2017 State of the American Workplace report notes that just 33% of workers in the U.S. are engaged at work. As organizations look for ways to increase engagement and boost productivity, all while keeping data management and security at the forefront of their efforts, it’s clear that modern management is essential for ongoing success.

Management of endpoints, including smartphones, tablets and laptops, in this age of disruption continues to be both a challenge and an opportunity for companies of all industries and sizes. Forward-thinking organizations recognize that giving employees a chance to utilize their preferred device(s), whether corporate owned or BYO (bring your own), contributes to both employee satisfaction and engagement. As increasing security threats has pushed IT into silos, legacy management simply isn’t an option if you want to survive and thrive moving forward.

With new modern management tools, the framework has changed. Unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions reduce both the expense and time it takes to optimize the many point solutions that organizations must use to keep employees engaged and productive. In fact, the best UEM platforms allow users to manage all endpoints from one pane of glass! Companies benefit from improved security and compliance while end-users are delivered a better user experience.

If you’re like most organizations, you may find yourself trying to manage Windows 10, iOS, Mac OS, Android, Google and rugged devices, each with their own inherent complexity. If it’s making you crazy, you’re not alone! With the introduction of VMware Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management, we can help you simplify the complex. Workspace ONE manages all endpoints over-the-air, including BYO devices, while providing market-leading security and compliance to protect, detect and remediate against modern-day threats.
