RIM's New Multiplatform Enterprise Mobility Management Solution Makes Mobility Easy for Businesses

WATERLOO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/23/13 -- Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced that its new Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10, is now available for download. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 re-invents RIM's EMM by bringing together device management, industry leading security(i), and mobile applications management for BlackBerry® smartphones, BlackBerry® PlayBook(TM) tablets, and new BlackBerry 10 smartphones in a consolidated solution. It also provides a single console for managing BlackBerry, Android(TM) and iOS® devices.

BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 builds on more than a decade of RIM's enterprise mobility management expertise and the most widely deployed mobility solution in enterprises today. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 offers mobile device management, mobile application management and secure mobile connectivity, and delivers a cost-efficient and reliable solution for business customers.

"BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 empowers employees to be more productive and better equipped to serve customers while it provides business and IT leaders with the confidence that corporate data is protected and manageable in the same way they have long enjoyed with BlackBerry," said Peter Devenyi, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Software, Research In Motion. "BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 makes mobility easy for businesses to help keep them moving."

Flexible Enterprise Mobility Management

BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 gives organizations a highly scalable solution and the flexibility to manage their mobile deployment as needed.

It includes an intuitive, unified, web-based administration console to manage devices and users. It also supports BlackBerry® Balance(TM) technology, which elegantly separates and secures work applications and data from personal content on BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 is built on the same security and connectivity model for BlackBerry 10 smartphones that enterprise customers have always trusted and relied upon with BlackBerry® Enterprise Server.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently.

However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
