BlackBerry to reveal strategy for the enterprise tomorrow

BlackBerry to reveal strategy for the enterprise tomorrow
BES12 is one of the highlights of BlackBerry's enterprise strategy that will be discussed tomorrow, at an event in San Francisco. The manufacturer will divulge which carriers it will be working with in relation to BES12. This is the manufacturer's MDM system that will allow IT departments to support a company's complete fleet of smartphones regardless if they use iOS, Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry powered smartphones.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen discussed the difference that a year has made to enterprise customers. The turnaround artist said that last year, even if they liked a BlackBerry product, potential customers stayed away, not sure if the company would survive. Now that it appears as though BlackBerry has turned the corner, it is signing up potential subscribers. So far, 3.4 million clients have preliminarily signed up for BES12. These are all possible revenue paying customers.


BlackBerry is competing against some pretty stiff competition in the mobile device management field. Companies like Citrix, IBM and SAP are also involved in mobile device security, one of BlackBerry's bread and butter specialties. IDC technology analyst John Jackson says that while BlackBerry has lost market share in devices, it still has a chance to be a player in data security for the enterprise. "The mobile revolution has come and gone, companies are only now tooling up for it and it is up to BlackBerry to bring the right tools to the party," said the analyst.

Looks like they're losing relevance in their home turf. BB needs to step up their game otherwise they risk sinking and becoming a technology afterthought like Palm became.

I believe they are in much better position as compare to their past.

They're facing competition from other competitors.

Everyone faces competition in every field. Your point?

20. Mxyzptlk unregistered

That was my point. Don't get so sensitive.

You mean like you always do, especially when someone downs your precious Apple? BlackBerry is larger than their nearest 3 competitors combined, by far. They currently don't really have competition in the enterprise field. Everyone knows that what you were really trying to do was down BlackBerry, like you usually do. Your out of your depth here. BlackBerry is the gold standard in enterprise.

You're too sensitive. It's not that big of a deal and yet here you are. Blackberry isn't the gold standard in enterprise. That's just a overzealous comment

I'm too sensitive, and yet here you are like some spurned lover always commenting negatively on BlackBerry articles. Pot, meet kettle.... BlackBerry is and always has been the gold standard in enterprise. Just because you refuse to believe it doesn't make it any less true.

BlackBerry is larger than their next 3 competitors combined in the enterprise space. http://berryflow.com/2014/07/blackberry-will-become-bigger-ever/

Show me a credible source then

The source is credible. How about you show proof about BlackBerry losing relevance in enterprise field like I previously asked? Oh that's right, you can't.

A blog post from a fan isn't a credible source

That's a post from a site with a credible source, which is more than what you've ever provided. Where's the proof I asked from you? Still non-existent. Just because you don't like the source, doesn't mean it's not credible. But here's even more proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SA72a-Bu-og

Your proof that they've "lost relevance on their home turf" when they are the #1 player in enterprise?

8. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I said they're LOSING relevance. Pay attention next time.

You're proof that they're losing revelance then? Like I showed proof that you're PA's biggest troll.

Right on cue.

One could say the same about you, every time PA posts a BlackBerry article.

Just like you. Always there to troll whenever theres a new BlackBerry post.

And I said "show PROOF" Looks like you can't do that. Stop speaking from a position of ignorance.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Take your own advice.

I always do. Time for you to do the same. Cut the ignorance and show proof or be quiet.

Nice try. Attempting to copy your betters. Its a failed attempt. But its a nice try anyway.

Can't take your own medicine I see

Neither can you.

Nothing like high fiving yourself

You should know, right? Self gratification is your thing, after all.
