Mobile computing: BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10

Share this post:

Last May, I was at BlackBerry World in Orlando, and I saw a fascinating method to manage devices from different suppliers using one console and, even better, using cloud.

Mobile computing and its collaborative solutions are among the clear leading services that are moving to the cloud, like Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365 and IBM SmartCloud.

How do you keep enterprise mobility management and devices in step with cloud deployments?

If you are using a mail solution from Microsoft like Office 365, you can synchronize emails from cloud or by using IBM Lotus Notes Traveler with the same function.

For BlackBerry Enterprise Service B10, cloud is an enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform and a consolidation of BlackBerry enterprise portfolios, which includes mobile device management (MDM), security, unified communications and application management products and services. It has been designed to effectively manage corporate and personal BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android devices.

So how it will work?

BlackBerry 10 supports ActiveSync for enterprise integration with Microsoft Exchange and other onsite or cloud-based mail platforms that use ActiveSync. It is simple to set up and sync BlackBerry 10 smartphones out of the box with ActiveSync alone—users simply enter the appropriate user and server details and start receiving email and syncing their calendar and contacts.

So, now if we put both together in a cloud, the result will be:
