2_21_2012 3_10_27 PM

RIM has finally launched the first component in their revamp of their enterprise products. Today the launched BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Studio which is the overarching management server for mobile devices. Currently it can centrally manage your BlackBerry Enterprise Server or Enterprise Server Express installation along with controlling the new BlackBerry Device Service. BlackBerry Device Service is the new component that lets enterprises enforce policies and control BlackBerry PlayBooks. Their is a third part of Mobile Fusion that is coming in March which will also allow it to manage iOS and Android devices in what is called a MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution.

RIM is now offering a free 90 day trial for Mobile Fusion for companies to test out with up to 500 licenses on their website. Its available in 45 countries around the world so this is thankfully not limited to North America. RIM is being very vague about final pricing but that is probably because it is an enterprise product. Right now they are saying that BlackBerry Device Service and Universal Device Service Client Access Licenses (CALs) start from $99 or $4.00 per month (billed annually).

  1. What doesn’t make sense on that picture is that Mobile Fusion doesn’t have any control over the new PIM suite since the apps connect directly to an exchange server and are out of the “work” perimeter…

  2. Interesting :)
    What they really need to do is to make it work like Docstogo which can work with all perimeters.
    If you have bridge, it should become a bridge app and get its configuration from your phone and store the data in an encrypted container. Not everybody can afford to use the BlackBerry Device Service in order to protect their privacy.

    As it stands, unless you’re an enterprise user, the PlayBook is a personal device that you cannot easily share with others.
