“Another interesting thing was something that we found during Magic Quadrant reference checking. Increasingly the initial MDM champion, who made the business case, chose the software and led the MDM program had now moved on. The new guy (or gal) in the role often didn’t have the same enthusiasm (putting it politely) for MDM generally, for the MDM software that was installed or for the incumbent MDM software supplier.”

A pretty bad review of MDM vendors merits indeed. But, as I have experienced during several decades in the IT business, this is an observation that probably could be made not only in the MDM realm.
However it could be good to learn how MDM implementations could be stickier. What are MDM implementations missing? Is it:
- The functionality in MDM solutions that needs improvement?
- The often massive consultancy that comes with a MDM tool that doesn’t meet expectations?
- Enterprises not actually being ready for MDM?
My take is: All of above in mentioned order. Your take is?
