Globo Plc (LSE-AIM: GBO), the global provider of complete enterprise mobility solutions and SaaS, today announced it has been included in Gartner’s first Magic Quadrant report for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM).
Previously called the Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management, Gartner has renamed the report and enhanced the selection criteria to reflect the dynamics of the increasingly sophisticated enterprise mobility market, in particular the growing demand for application and content management.
Over 100 vendors were evaluated for the report against a series of criteria; qualifying vendors were required to show, as a minimum:
- $8 million in 2013 EMM revenue
- 1,500 EMM customers
- 500,000 EMM licenses in customer environments
- MDM Support for at least three mobile OSs (i.e. iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry)
- Five references using the EMM product in production
- The EMM product must be able to manage policies and control data sharing for mobile applications
- The EMM product must provide a device resident container to store and manage content
Globo is the only new vendor that has been added to the Gartner EMM Magic Quadrant Report for 2014.
“Today marks a significant milestone for Globo. Our inclusion in the first Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management suites further underscores to our customers that we deliver a powerful, end-to-end Enterprise Mobility Management solution in addition to our Mobile Application Development Platform to address all their needs. This is a new benchmark in Enterprise Mobility and we are proud to be amongst the few companies globally that can offer both capabilities in one, fully-integrated product,” said Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, CEO of GLOBO. “I want to congratulate our employees and thank them all for their continuous efforts and commitment to innovation. It is this that helps Globo to occupy a unique position in a global competitive space and our products to shape the future of the sector.”
Best known for its GO!Enterprise™ product line, Globo has created a new benchmark for EMM, by creating an extensible solution that includes Mobile Application Development Platform (MADP) as part of the license for its EMM product. GO!Enterprise includes a core set of Secure PIM, collaboration and productivity applications, a secure content container, as well as a secure content management application in its core offering under a single license. Globo perfectly matches the increasing needs of organizations for a single product that provides a transparent integration of MADP and EMM solutions.
The Magic Quadrant for EMM comes on the heels of GLOBO’s 2013 annual report, which indicates year-over-year revenue growth of more than 55 percent and an increase in profitability of over 50 percent. This significant boost is a result of GLOBO’s unique ability to provide both EMM and MADP products to organizations of all sizes. Furthermore, these financial results provide great assurance about Globo’s strength and stability for organizations that are looking for a partner for their mobility strategy.
