IBM Endpoint Manager was recently recognised in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner’s 2013 Client Management Tools. This is a great endorsement of IEM which excels in patch management, multiplatform support and scalability.
Gartner defines Client Management Tools as:
“End-user computing and support organizations use client management tools to automate system administration and support functions that would otherwise be handled manually. They are configuration management tools that image client systems, track inventory, deploy configuration changes (such as software or patches), enforce configuration standards and assist with troubleshooting. Windows PCs are the primary target of management, but organizations are looking to extend these products to manage Macs, mobile devices and servers as well. Mobile device management (MDM) is still a separate market, but organizations are increasingly looking to use a single vendor and management platform to support their PCs, Macs and mobile devices.”
Hey, what a great endorsement of IEM’s capabilities… to manage your PCs, Macs AND mobile devices, from a single management platform.
