The Australian Mobile Device Management (MDM) market is at a nascent stage of growth, with awareness and understanding of the MDM solution beginning to grow. Until recently, organisations considered MDM solutions either as ‘nice-to-have’ or unnecessary depending on their particular situation. However, as trends such as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and employee driven IT gather momentum, organisations will increasingly look to minimise their asset management overheads and will allow employees to either bring or choose their own devices. Such trends will cause a significant increase in the number of employee owned devices within enterprises, thereby increasing the demand for MDM solutions.
