Be enterprise ready out of the box

BlackBerry understands enterprise needs so as a developer you’ll be building your solutions with hardened enterprise grade components many of which have NIAP certifications. Furthermore, BlackBerry’s enterprise product portfolio leadership has been independently assessed by industry analysts including Gartner who has given BlackBerry Enterprise products Leader, Visionary and #1 in High Security Capabilities designations and Forrester who has given a Leader position. **

Accelerate development of your enterprise solution and maximize your resources

We understand that building the right mobility solution is important but so is building it quickly. Some way in which developers can expedite their development include:

  • Create re-usable back-end services in the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Server (BEMS) and access them via your secure apps created using the BlackBerry SDK
  • Leverage the BlackBerry UEM Integration SDK to quickly build a plug-in with a custom user interface, directory integration, group management and much more to view, analyze and configure your custom mobility solution

Build an enterprise solution without having EMM/MDM as a pre-requisite

Use the BlackBerry UEM Server and BlackBerry UEM Integration SDK to build custom solution (plug-in) to fit your needs and optionally add in BlackBerry EMM capabilities at a later time. This presents enormous possibilities for developers who no longer have to start building enterprise back-end servers from scratch. With BlackBerry UEM Integration SDK you get direct API access to the BlackBerry UEM Core and UI allowing you access to key enterprise capabilities as Active Directory Integration, Group Management, High Availability, a custom user interface and much more.

Furthermore, additional mobility capabilities can be added to the same BlackBerry UEM Server via another plug-in. These, out of the box capabilities, will significantly boost time to market, increase scalability and reliability and allow you to focus on creating unique mobility solutions versus underlying capabilities.
