What iOS 7 Means for the Enterprise
Apple’s iOS 7 brings over 200 new consumer and business features to iOS devices, including over 40 features that specifically enable or enhance key Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) capabilities. These new EMM capabilities, such as per-app VPN, ‘Open In’ management, and a bulk app purchase program that includes license reclamation, respond to what enterprises need to fully embrace iOS devices as critical business tools. They also require a third-party EMM solution, like MobileIron, to function. These new EMM features, together with MobileIron’s platform, empower enterprises to accelerate their adoption of mobile devices and apps, making mobile their primary computing platform and realizing all the benefits of being a Mobile First organization.
This document is intended to help you understand how these new EMM capabilities will impact your organization. We’ve organized them into two groups, Mobile Application Enhancements and Device Management Enhancements. We begin with Mobile Application Enhancements because we believe these capabilities will have the broadest impact.
