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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
