Once again BlackBerry is named as leaders by Gartner, this time for their core business.
It can be said that BlackBerry has become accustomed to appearing in Gartner’s reports, which is considered to be the most prestigious in the field. This time at Gartner, they tested the UEM leadership, which is also the core of BlackBerry’s activity. Here Blackberry was found to be a leader in the field, along with a few other few companies.
In a detailed report (it takes an hour to read it), Gartner’s researchers speculate about each of the companies listed in the report, and for Blackberry,
BlackBerry’s UEM offering is appropriate for organizations not seeking CMT functionality or a single product that can handle migration of legacy management and modern management. The extensibility of the BlackBerry container on mobile devices and PCs is well-suited to organizations seeking to offer company data on unmanaged devices. This is especially true where multiple apps must be deployed in the container and cross-app services such as presence information are required.
Gartner also mentioned the BlackBerry Bridge, that give flexibility to companies who use Office 365.
