We have seen a lot of enterprise news come our way lately and it probably won't stop anytime soon. Today, we are bringing you more enterprise news, this time from India, where BlackBerry is opening Enterprise Solution Centers in Mumbai and Gurgaon. The centers will be there to cater to the needs of enterprise customers, taking them through the installation process of BES10 and more.

This is certainly news I like to see. BlackBerry is making a lot of moves in enterprise, which is no surprise as this is their strong point. I hope to see more news like this come about. You can read the full press release below.

Press Release

Mumbai, India – As part of its commitment and focus on the enterprise mobility market, BlackBerry® (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB) today announced the opening of BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions Centres in Mumbai and Gurgaon. The centres, the first-of-their-kind in India, will cater to the needs of enterprise customers and provide them with a walk-in experience of BlackBerry’s robust enterprise mobility management solutions including BES10, BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5 and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express, hosted and cloud-based options, and in-market BlackBerry smartphones.

The BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions Centres will detail for enterprises the BES10 security architecture and how mobility can enhance corporate productivity. The centre will train BlackBerry Enterprise VARs (Value Added Resellers) and customers on deploying BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, and plans to offer courses for BlackBerry certifications for IT administrators who are currently managing a BES infrastructure or want to enhance their skills on BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions. India will be the third country to roll-out a BlackBerry Enterprise Solutions Centre after US and UK.

Inaugurating the Centres, Sunil Lalvani, Managing Director for India at BlackBerry said, “These first-of-their kind centres in India reflect BlackBerry’s deep and long-term commitment to the country and our customers. The initiative focuses on the growth and opportunities of the enterprise mobility market and ‘bring your own device’ trends in India, highlighting how BlackBerry’s leading EMM solutions can help businesses improve the productivity of their mobile workforces.”

Customers can request a visit to the Enterprise Solutions Centre through BlackBerry Enterprise Sales teams, its ecosystem of VARs or through carrier partners.

BlackBerry doesn't just do smartphones.....cue commercial.

If those lazy technology journalists only knew they would print an apology to BlackBerry in extra large print.

Then they would say something like......BB opens center in India ,might close US center to save money... they have a way of creating mis-information and you can't do anything about it because they have the right to speculate and write anything they want.Life stinks!!!

Thanks, just went to read that article it's great.

I absolutely love my BlackBerry, I would not trade it for anything. 10.2.1 will complete BB10 once complete they should prepare for the next generation of BlackBerry and move past BlackBerry 10, with a completed OS like BB10 at present and a launch with new hardware and all the apps. This time launch with proper marketing, products delivered on time, and I would love to see a tablet. BB10 deserves a big screen and by building it they would be showing this is a new BlackBerry and they moved past the PlayBook.

With all the cost cutting, new management etc and recent investment, BlackBerry should be able to hold off long enough for a comeback and with all the news about companies choosing BES10 they would have such a head start.

I feel that old "Elite" feeling coming from Mr. Chen's office. One of the reasons I first got a BlackBerry for my 1st smartphone.

I like it. Keep it coming.

Well what they didn't mention here is the fact that BlackBerry is closing the center in Halifax, Nova Scotia, screwing 300 Canadians and moving their jobs to India. Last year they closed the center in Texas.

So, this is not so great news for many of them.

Also service wise, enterprise customers may see a drastic drop in the quality of the service they paid for.

According to the latest financial statements, BlackBerry has lost about 68 per cent of its enterprise business customers over the past few years, dropping from 250,000 to 80,000. They are allowing free downloads until end of 2013. Then they will unleash the defined, new, sales force on the list. The trajectory is not good, but I see this as a good start. If successful, then go to next goal, on and on.
