As BlackBerry continues to expand their enterprise of things platform, they've been growing their partnerships as well to help with that. One of their latest partnerships, announced via the Inside BlackBerry blog, sees them team up with Slack for BlackBerry UEM integration through AppConfig.
To help better-enable developers, we joined the AppConfig Community earlier this year as an EMM member. Established in 2016, AppConfig simplifies deployment and adoption by establishing a common, native approach to development. By using AppConfig, development teams can create configuration policies for applications that work consistently no matter what platform they're on.
Through our membership in AppConfig, BlackBerry has formed partnerships with promising developers and organizations. Our most recent is with Slack, the powerful workplace collaboration platform. Through AppConfig, we've integrated BlackBerry UEM with Slack, supporting the launch of the app's mobility management offering.
Integrating BlackBerry UEM with Slack through AppConfig will allow our clients to deploy and manage it alongside our Dynamics-secured apps, including BlackBerry Work, 80+ ISV apps, and 4,000+ custom apps developed through our SDKs. As a recognized leader in mobile application management, BlackBerry's security expertise ensures you can equip your employees with everything they need to stay connected and productive – without worrying about compromising your data.
If you're looking to learn more about how Slack can integrate with Enterprise Mobility Management, they have a rather broad technical layout that provides more information right here. You can also check out the full post over at the Inside BlackBerry blog.
