MindLink Announces Collaboration App for BlackBerry 10 Smartphones

LONDON, January 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Industry first brings persistent chat via Lync to all BlackBerry 10 customers

MindLink Software, a provider of real-time business-critical collaboration and persistent chat solutions, has launched a collaboration app to support all BlackBerry® 10 smartphones. The first company to bring Persistent Chat via Microsoft Lync to BlackBerry 10, MindLink is transforming how users share knowledge and ideas by enabling them to make business-critical decisions on the move, no matter what mobile device they are using.

Features commonly used in the consumer social space, such as @mentions and #hashtags, are incorporated into the state-of-the-art app for BlackBerry smartphones. Coupled with a new MindLink interface designed specifically for BlackBerry 10 smartphones, the new app creates an intuitive and user-friendly environment to encourage secure collaboration and information sharing among colleagues.

Key MindLink for BlackBerry 10 features include:

  • Access to Persistent Group Chat discussions while on the move
  • A new interface specifically designed for BlackBerry 10
  • Ability to assign tasks to specific people using @mentions or start sub-conversations through #hashtags
  • Critical IM allows Instant Messaging conversations to be stored and fed back into persistent chat channels
  • Fully supported by BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10

"Employees are increasingly becoming accustomed to using Instant Messaging and Chat technology in their personal lives, yet often have to revert back to email-based communications for work," says Annekathrin Häse, director of strategy and marketing at MindLink. "For time-pressed mobile workers, lengthy email discussions can soon become unmanageable and there's a risk that vital information is overlooked.  By bringing the principles of secure, persistent group chat technology onto BlackBerry 10 smartphones, we are making it easier for customers to have access to the right information at the right time, facilitating rapid and productive business decision making."

"We're excited that MindLink is expanding the capabilities of their enterprise persistent chat and instant messaging app on the BlackBerry 10 platform," said Peter Ng Senior Director of Global Alliances & Business Development at BlackBerry. "It's a welcome addition to the suite of enterprise-grade applications available for BlackBerry customers."

MindLink Mobile for BlackBerry smartphones supports Microsoft OCS 2007 R2, Lync Server 2010 and Lync Server 2013.

In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
