Analysts Reiterate That BlackBerry Will Not "Dissapear Tomorrow"

All last week, including Ronen’s spot on CNBC, people have been asking if BlackBerry is going out of business and if their devices will stop working. Gartner released their recommendation about a month ago for companies to create a plan to migrate off BlackBerry within 6 months. This has created quite a stir especially during BlackBerrys very uncertain “strategic review.”

Now BlackBerry has taken down the “For Sale” sign and analysts are sounding off on where they see BlackBerry in the enterprise. Here are a few from some of the analysts who are covering BlackBerry:

  • “If you take a look at a lot of enterprises, they want a full turn-key solution for mobile security. Guess who’s been supplying that on a certain level? BlackBerry has proven itself time and again to be a secure system.” – Ramon Llamas, IDC
  • "If customers need the FIPS security that BlackBerry offers, there is no immediate need to replace them," Gold said. "BlackBerry will not just disappear overnight despite what some doomsayers have predicted." – Jack Gold, J. Gold Associates
  • “BlackBerry is in the middle of a very difficult product transition, but it can quote Mark Twain to its customers, ‘Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.’” – Carl Howe, Yankee Group

You notice the trend is focused on giving BlackBerry some time to right its ship and play to its strengths. I wonder if Gartner will change its tune…

  1. Gartner has lost credibility in their absurd statements regarding BlackBerry’s demise. Is there really another good option out there for big enterprise and governments?
    Don’t even think Airwatch because they only offer part of the equation.
