BlackBerry’s new BES 12 solution is really shaping up to be an incredible service. The future of the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) is here now, with BlackBerry.
We’ve exclusively learned BES 12 provides the foundation to extend Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) beyond smartphones and tablets to integrate new endpoints.
BlackBerry’s goal is to unite people and machines across the ‘Internet of Things’, building on the M2M heritage of QNX which powers nuclear plants, vehicles and medical devices.
Extensibility is being demonstrated via a proof of concept where BES 12 is managing QNX-based medical devices. Additional PoCs in other management environments and other industrial M2M applications are being explored.
Eventually, BlackBerry will be bringing BES 12 support for Windows 8.1 (RT/Surface Pro) and Mac OS X.
