Intelligent Device Management

Definition - What does Intelligent Device Management mean?

Intelligent device management is a term used for software products or services that help managers to control hardware and equipment through the global IP network. This type of resource is often used in manufacturing and in other systems where many different hardware pieces have to communicate with each other and collaborate over long distances.

Intelligent device management is also known as remote device management.

Techopedia explains Intelligent Device Management

In manufacturing processes, intelligent device management solutions can provide overall management for a collection of physical machines in what’s called a machine-to-machine network. This is helpful for robotic work flow processes, assembly lines or other processes that use a variety of machines not connected by network cable.

In addition to basic collaborative management, intelligent device managers can provide advanced reporting on machines and systems. For example, products including IBM’s Tivoli Intelligent Device Manager software can provide feedback on carbon emissions and other physical results of industrial processes. Other advanced features of this type of software can help businesses to assess costs, supply chain work flow or other issues, providing business intelligence for change management.
