Enterprise mobility management (EMM) is an umbrella term for a collection of processes and technologies used to manage mobile devices and wireless networks.
EMM solutions enable companies to expand into multiple offices and include remote workers without increasing the workload on IT teams.
See the case studies below to learn how organizations in various industries are using EMM solutions:
ADSI has been a provider of mobile and telecommunication services for B2B clients since 2002. As a leader in the UK mobile communications industry, the company has multiple branches over the country with around 50 employees.
Clients providing smartphones and tablets for their employees needed a way to make sure the data they pay for is used properly. Using IBM’s EMM solution MAAS360, ADSI was able to offer Mobile Data Management services for its clients.
“Our Mobile Device Management service gives us an additional offering we can market. And it helps us to meet our customers’ requests for added security, visibility, and control over their devices,” says Adrian Spreadborough, Founder and Managing Director at ADSI.
“A very important criterion for us was the flexibility to tailor whatever we selected to suit our needs as a business,” adds Spreadborough.

3. The Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum houses the world’s largest Vincent van Gogh collection in the world. With 200 paintings and 500 drawings, the museum has over 300 dedicated staff that work on preserving the artwork.
The pandemic significantly reduced foot traffic, revenue, and forced the majority of its staff to work remotely. The museum needed a way to manage its remote workers at a lower budget.
The Van Gogh Museum implemented secure communication with mobile employee devices and sync desktops and digital workplaces with the help of Ivanti.
“It’s a big advantage for our employees that the updates in the start menu and new or adjusted settings come through immediately now,” says Rob de Zwaan, Senior Systems Administrator at The Van Gogh Museum.
“[Patching employee laptops] previously took one person 10 hours each week to update the machines,” adds Zwaan.
EMM solution: Ivanti Security Controls (ISEC), Ivanti Workspace Control, and Ivanti Cloud Relay
- Saving 97.5% time on patching laptops
- Mitigated over 50 vulnerabilities in two years
- Saving 72% time on patching servers

DigitalMint sells cryptocurrency through physical kiosks. Based in Chicago, Illinois, the company also offers various financial services such as bank transfers and digital purchasing of currencies.
DigitalMint uses iPads as its Point-of-Sale (PoS) devices. However, since those devices are available for anyone on the market, the IT team was concerned about their security and implementation.
Using Hexnode Kiosk, DigitalMint was able to lock its PoS iPads to a single or multiple apps remotely to avoid unauthorized access to data.
“The two things I look for are per unit cost and reliability and Hexnode has a low per-unit cost,” says Daniel Smith, Technical Operations Lead at DigitalMint.
“It just needs to have intuitive menus, and I think it does, some of the menus are quite intuitive,” adds Smith.
Industry: Financial services
EMM solutions: Hexnode Kiosk
- Easy installation through the Hexnode app
- Manage iPads from a central console
- Device and application locking for security
