IBM intends to acquire Enterprise Mobility Management vendor Fiberlink.

This will give IBM the Gartner MDM Magic Quadrant leader MaaS 360 which is a cloud-based SaaS solution.  This leaves only AirWatch and MobileIron as the remaining pure-play EMM companies that haven’t been snapped up by larger enterprise companies.  Like SAP, IBM has been scooping up various mobile startups to bolster the enterprise mobility offerings.

      For companies that are comfortable with the cloud and don’t want to manage their own servers, SaaS is a compelling option.
