MDM is dead, long live EMM

Constellation Research:

MDM is dead and it’s been dead for a long time. It no longer makes sense as a product and businesses have begun to finally realize it and not buy into the hype.

MCM, MIM, TEM, DRM, IRM, if it has three letters in it, chances are someone has included it in this unending black hole called EMM.
