About the event

Returning speaker Simon Howard, Developer Evangelist at BlackBerry will share an update on BlackBerry 10. Talking in depth about the latest release of the OS, Simon will focus on some of the compelling features that developers can leverage when creating their apps, whether it be for an app store or for internal use within an enterprise. He will provide an update on the tools and SDKs that can be used and will take a look at Open and Cross-Platform mobile development. Joining Simon to present Session 2 is David Arnold, Senior Enterprise Developer at BlackBerry who will present an overview of the means in which BlackBerry 10 development can be successfully deployed within the Enterprise. In this session, David will discuss one of the most exciting developments to hit BlackBerry in the Enterprise over the last 12 months is Secure Work Space which allows Customers to securely manage their data and applications on iOS and Android devices. He will provide a quick overview of both the architecture and functionality of Secure Work Space, and build on Simon's discussion of cross platform development to demonstrate how an application can be developed, secured, managed and deployed with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.

With its renowned reputation for secure mobile communications and with business and government customers investing in BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10), BlackBerry is establishing its position as a cross-platform MDM provider by extending the Secure Work Space feature to iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. And as the first mobile solutions provider that has achieved the Full Operational Capability (FOC) to run on US Department of Defense (DoD) networks, BlackBerry proves to be the most trusted enterprise mobility platform in the mobile industry. Secure Work Place is a feature within BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, designed to allow IT managers create a separate area on any iOS or Android device by encrypting information that is stored or passed through productivity apps like email, calendar, contacts (PIM), web browsing and document viewing and editing (Documents to Go). By separating corporate data and applications from personal data and apps, administrators are able to manage and secure company’s assets while still allowing employees to use their devices without any restrictions. To fully explore the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 new containerization, application-wrapping and secure connectivity option for iOS and Android devices, CW is proud to deliver the third in the Blackberry 10 series.
