This IDC Market Perspective discusses the implications of intelligent digital workspace for client endpoint management market participants. UEM vendors are well positioned to help address some of the top challenges of inflexible workspaces -- monolithic nonintegrated apps, forced end-user context switching among technologies, and security barriers. Consistency of experience across endpoint devices -- from the end-user environment look and feel to consistent, fluid access controls and app availability -- is a core function of most UEM solutions on the market today."Delivering a cohesive digital workspace to end users starts with unifying and normalizing user experiences across all device types," says Phil Hochmuth, program VP, Enterprise Mobility and Client Endpoint Management, IDC. "To that end, UEM will be a cornerstone technology for enterprises building intelligent digital workspaces, along with other key system infrastructure software such as IT service management, virtual client computing, and identity and access management."
