BlackBerry has held several webinars in recent months to talk about its enterprise offerings, but it appears they have not been sufficient. Now the Canadian firm released a series called “BlackBerry Enterprise Technical Expert” on YouTube, offering a lot of information on its key products and features.
BlackBerry promotes Enterprise Mobility Solutions
The BlackBerry Enterprise Technical Expert Series on YouTube has a lot of information to offer to IT leaders hungry for expert insight on enterprise mobility solutions, the Canadian firm said. It has invited experts across the organization to speak on a variety of topics that could be of interest to enterprise IT and mobility managers.
IT leaders face many problems in arming their employees with the mobile devices and applications they like using while ensuring that the enterprise and its data are fully secured. Highlighting key products and features which address such issues is the company’s goal.
“Because BlackBerry’s acquisition of Good Dynamics has generated so much attention, particularly since January when we introduced the first fruits of our integration in Good Secure EMM Suites, we’ve invited David Moellenkamp, Senior Director of Solutions Development at BlackBerry, to kick off the YouTube series,” the Canadian firm said in a blog post.
The smartphone maker has already uploaded the first two videos of the series with the titles “Integrating Good Dynamics and BES12” and “Mobile App Management in BES12.” The Canadian firm noted that it will be possible for viewers to follow along with the YouTube playlist to view more as it expands the series.
More Android handsets in the pipeline
BlackBerry also still plans to launch two mid-range Android devices this year, and analysts believe this will be the last opportunity for the firm to get it right in handsets. This news comes after the company admitted that the Priv, the first BlackBerry to run on Google’s mobile OS, was too expensive.
“The fact that we came out with a high-end phone (as our first Android device) was probably not as wise as it should have been,” CEO John Chen said.
In a recent interview with The National, an Abu Dhabi-based publication, Chen said the company will release one Android handset with a keyboard and full touchscreen this year. Chen did not specify the timing of the release.
