First those user companies who today mainly depend on mobile or specialized devices and corresponding operating systems such as Mac OS or Chrome OS will (be able to) switch to UEM.

How to deal with group policies for instance, what should happen with the established client management processes?
The UEM turning point is no more and no less than a radical rethink along the lines of digitalization: Where devices stood center stage for decades, the focus is now shifting to the user. UEM promotes and demands customer-centric approaches that put cross-device working center stage. And that could ultimately lead to a better user experience. Apples and oranges from the same pot if you like. Compote. Could taste good.
