Mobile Device Management - the Next Hot Enterprise Market

We are living in the Modern Gadget Era. Today Mobile Workforce, is considered to be the simple, yet the most powerful strategy for business success. Its PDA, BlackBerry, etc.., etc.. everywhere.

Most organizations provide mobile devices to their employees. As this trend would expand in future, managing such mobile devices will be a bigger challenge for the IT Professionals.

This is where they would need a Mobile Device Management Software that can minimize their manual efforts and provide more productivity.

Today there aren't many vendors in this segment however in near future this will be the primary target for many Enterprise Software vendors.

Very recently, two major vendors Microsoft and CA have launched their Mobile Device Software Solution. Other major systems management vendors like Novell, BMC, LANDesk and Symantec are expected to enter into this market, soon.

CA, which says they support many features for mobile device management, will charge US$ 65 for each mobile device do be managed. The SMBs which cannot afford such high price for each device will surely go for low cost software with the best set of features. Hence there is a huge market for high and low cost software in this segment.

As per a research report, the Mobile Device Management software market is expected to grow up to US$ 345 Millions by 2011.

Personally, I would like to see some Indian Software company sharing the largest pie of this [:-)]

Can anyone recommend the robust Network Monitoring program for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central system management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!
