RIM shares roadmap of BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10

For anyone that likes to get really in-depth with the inner working of RIM’s enterprise servers, the BlackBerry BizBlog is the place to go.  Jeff Holleran, Senior Director for Enterprise Product Management for RIM, has written another awesome post explaining the roadmap for BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.  This is a great read for anyone working in IT, or if you are merely interested in this type of stuff.

BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 represents a consolidation of our enterprise mobility management (EMM) product portfolio, which includes our mobile device management (MDM), security, infrastructure, and app management products. It will prepare your organization for the future of mobile diversity, as well as integrate with your existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) deployment. From a single unified web-based console, BES 10 will manage the following devices:

  • BlackBerry 7 OS and prior smartphones
  • BlackBerry 10 devices
  • BlackBerry PlayBook tablets
  • iOS and Android™ smartphones and tablets

BES 10 will be the ultimate management solution for all BlackBerry platform devices, as well as iOS and Android devices. BES 10 will launch with the first BlackBerry 10 devices in Q1 of calendar year 2013.

RIM remains committed to our enterprise customers by providing advanced, innovative, and flexible options for a straight-forward migration to BlackBerry 10 smartphones, as well as cross-platform management of your mobile device deployment.

  • It did add more clarity to the situation. Now we need to know upgrade paths… for instance, you have a BB OS 7 and want to upgrade to BB 10, do you need a BlackBerry Device Service license key? Does the BB 10 server cost anything? Lots of questions http://www.zezel.com we are trying to get this informaiton for our many clients.
