ISEC7 and BlackBerry to jointly support customers around the globe
Waterloo, ON and Hamburg, Germany – ISEC7, a global provider of mobile business services and software solutions, and BlackBerry® (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB) today announced an agreement to jointly support multinational and local customers with BlackBerry® 10 Readiness Services.
The joint effort leverages the BlackBerry enterprise mobility platform supported by ISEC7’s globally managed mobility services to offer customers the best possible experience for transitioning to BlackBerry® 10 and BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10.
ISEC7 will offer customers three BlackBerry 10 Readiness Services – Change Management and Planning with Migration Services, Change Management and Planning with Remote Installation, and BlackBerry 10 Application Development Services. The services are designed to help organizations of any size smoothly transition from BlackBerry® Enterprise Server (versions 4 and 5) or other device management solutions to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, as well as provide an end-to-end service for developing or porting existing apps to BlackBerry 10. ISEC7 will use its unique migration tool, B*Nator, which is designed to automatically migrate information from BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4 or 5 to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.
BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10 is designed to integrate with existing BlackBerry Enterprise Server deployments and manage a range of devices including BlackBerry 10 smartphones, BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets, and earlier BlackBerry OS platforms (BBOS 7.1 and earlier), as well as iOS® and Android™ smartphones and tablets – all from a single, unified web-based console.
