MobileIron Minute: Part 2 – MobileIron and Microsoft EMS

In this MobileIron Minute, Ojas Rege, VP of Strategy at MobileIron, shares his perspective on Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS). His discusses the strategic importance to Microsoft of owning identity as the “control plane” for the enterprise. EMS is an expanding suite of products, and MobileIron and EMS are mostly complementary. Enterprises will use MobileIron as their end-to-end EMM solution to secure apps and devices. Those same enterprises can use Microsoft EMS in parallel for its identity, Office configuration, rights management, and cloud security features. This is Part 2 of a three-part video series. You can see Part 1 (Microsoft Product Strategy) here and Part 3 (MobileIron and Microsoft Intune) here.
