Leaked BlackBerry Enterprise Software Roadmap for 2011

BES Enterprise roadmap 2011 RIM

RIM is really shaking up their enterprise offerings the past year or so. They threw in BES Express for free, worked with Google Apps, and are rolling out a “Cloud BES” solution. Lucas @N4BB scored a slide showing what is supposed to be the Enterprise Roadmap for BlackBerry solutions in 2011. We don’t have much confirmation on the rumor beyond the releases that already happened but some things are interesting:

  • SharePoint 1.0 general availability is “on hold since Nov RTM” whatever that means
  • BES 5.0.3 is still showing a late March or April release
  • BES Express 5.0.3 seems to be coming later in late May 2011
  • Some sort of BES for Google Apps is coming in the beginning of September which looks like part of the “Cloud BES” we have heard of before
  • A unknown Contrail 1.0 rel;ease is scheduled for sometime in November. No idea what it is but it may be something to do with the cloud BES solution

Here are two product slides to accompany the roadmap:

  1. Never heard of Contrail either, hmmm

  2. good things coming up

  3. Am I reading this right? Does BESx 5.0.3 require Server 2008 R2 and SQL 208 R2?

    • No, I don’t think so. That slide is actually for full BES and not BESx…misleading. When you look at the slide of the timeline BES Express is only referred to as BESx. Not sure what X/D means but pretty sure it’s not for Express.

  4. I just checked the software updates for BESX and 5.0.3 is now available for download along with release notes!
