EMM platforms mobilize an enterprise's application architecture by connecting the iPad to enterprise applications via an organization's current infrastructure-sync, WiFi, VPN and public-key infrastructure (PKI). The EMM platform bridges mobile users, applications and devices to the data services those entities need to access.

The EMM platform should integrate deeply into existing systems and, ideally, be a pure software overlay. That is, be part of the IT data center environment and architected to avoid inefficiencies, poor scalability and interoperability problems caused by closed or appliance-based IT silos. EMM platforms should integrate with Active Directory, Domino Directory, Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange ActiveSync, Exchange, Lotus Domino, Google Apps and enterprise PKI-thereby reducing TCO by leveraging the IT organization's intrinsic skills.
