Don’t believe the hype. Workers are still demanding their BlackBerry devices back in the workplace. However, while companies might be shifting toward BYOD, it doesn't mean they need to abandon BlackBerry. And, it doesn’t mean companies are moving off BlackBerry’s multi-platform management solution. BlackBerry manages Android, iOS, BlackBerry and eventually Windows Phone devices. With BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10), enterprises can now give their employees the opportunity to use any device, while managing them securely via BES10 and Secure Work Space. Customers are looking forward to future BlackBerry devices, including the BlackBerry Passport and BlackBerry Classic, as well as features including BlackBerry Assistant, the Amazon Appstore and up to 25 hours of battery life.

BlackBerry’s viability is not in question, as CEO John Chen has said that the Company expects to be profitable by FY 2016. BlackBerry also has a considerable amount of cash on hand, something that our competitors can’t say. We’re investing in our future – and the future of our customers – by making key strategic moves, including: The launch of BES12, a new platform that will enable customers to move beyond EMM to manage all the other “things” in the Internet of Things. Signing an agreement to acquire Secusmart to further enhance our security voice and data encryption and anti-eavesdropping capabilities. Investment in NantHealth to transform the delivery model of health-care to patients. Image via Info-Tech Research Group infographic
Info-Tech Research Group uses an outdated and out of context quote from CEO John Chen.
