RIM Introduces BlackBerry Mobile Fusion
Research In Motion announced today its launch of BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, an enterprise multi-platform mobile device management software solution. Allowing businesses to manage their mobile assets on major platforms, such as Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, BlackBerry Mobile Fusion was built upon RIM’s many years of experience with mobile management solutions.
“We are pleased to introduce BlackBerry Mobile Fusion – RIM’s next generation enterprise mobility solution – to make it easier for our business and government customers to manage the diversity of devices in their operations today,” said Alan Panezic, Vice President, Enterprise Product Management and Marketing at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry Mobile Fusion brings together our industry-leading BlackBerry Enterprise Server technology for BlackBerry devices with mobile device management capabilities for iOS and Android devices, all managed from one web-based console. It provides the necessary management capabilities to allow IT departments to confidently oversee the use of both company-owned and employee-owned mobile devices within their organizations.”
BlackBerry Mobile Fusion utilizes the BlackBerry Enterprise Server (version 5.0.3) to run the software that excels on management capabilities for mobile devices whether they’re tablets or smartphones.
