Boston, Massachusetts- November 9, 2012- With enterprises softening their IT/telecom policies by promoting the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, mobile device management (MDM) has become critical to IT departments, according to a new research note from Pyramid Research Senior Analyst Vinicius Caetano.

“RIM was once synonymous with the smartphone and MDM with its BlackBerry Enterprise Server,” says Caetano. “For IT departments, the fact that RIM is losing ground also means that their professionals have to work twice as hard to keep up with a platform that now speaks many languages due to the multiple types of devices, multiple OSes, multiple screen sizes and multiple brands.”

Now RIM is repositioning its MDM offering. The company is moving away from its device exclusivity, coming up with a new MDM/server platform that allows IT managers to control Android and iOS-based devices in almost the same way it controls BlackBerrys. Of course, it lacks the BlackBerry gold-standard security features when it comes to non-BlackBerry devices, but it still gives IT departments the option to make the BlackBerry devices available to those users that simply can't stand typing on touchscreens.
