Webinar - The Mobile Enterprise - Are You Dealing with Chaos?

Along with the advanced capabilities and access we enjoy with enhanced mobility, the devices, accessories and supporting networks also often include complications and complexities that dampen the experience overall. Research In Motion, the company behind the BlackBerry (News - Alert), has introduced a series of webcasts designed to End Mobile Chaos.

The first takes a glance inside the BlackBerry Enterprise portfolio as it evolves to provide the enhanced functionality, control and possibilities necessary to meet the growing needs of your business. To secure the long-term success of any mobile development, the planning of the infrastructure has to be a critical piece.

As companies are tasked with supporting, managing and even securing an increasing number of varieties of mobile devices, RIM has developed the BlackBerry Mobile Fusion. This application provides a single Web-based unified interface to allow administrators to provision, audit and protect any mobile device, whether it is a BlackBerry, Apple or Android (News - Alert)-based system.

Alan Panezic, VP, Enterprise Product Management and Marketing, Research In Motion, served as the presenter for this particular webcast. When speaking to the current atmosphere in the mobility market today, Panezic said, “There are a number of key trends in enterprise mobility, including consumerization, the governance of mobile devices, the mobility that is transforming the workplace and the proliferation of smarpthone and tablet choices.”

“We’re also seeing a lot of very early reports and a lot of excitement about the opportunity for mobility to truly transform the workplace by supporting new modes of operation, new types of business altogether. There is something very magical that happens when your location no longer dictates what you can accomplish in business,” said Panezic

The BlackBerry Mobile Fusion is set for a January introduction into the market and will integrate with not only BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry PlayBook, it will also manage devices using the Apple iOS and Google (News - Alert) Android operating systems. The purpose is to simplify the management of these mobile devices within the mobile enterprise, effectively ending the “mobile chaos”.

The second webcast installation will provide details on how the BlackBerry Mobile Fusion will manage your mobile devices faster from a single interface. This webcast will also provide information on how you can try this solution free for 90 days.

Finally, the third in this series of webcasts will focus on the big picture on the upcoming software upgrade for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. “It’s very common today for the professional to have a smartphone, a tablet and even a PC or laptop computer,” says Greg Lieberman from RIM. “But is that cost effective? Ideally, you should be able to get rid of one of those devices.” Does the PlayBook solve this challenge? Check out this archived webcast to know for sure.
