BlackBerry Partners with Slack for UEM Integration
BlackBerry has been diversifying and intensifying it’s reach and capabilities in their Enterprise of Things programme. From a OEM, it has successfully shifted it’s focus to catering critical industries with it’s applications. In this wide portfolio of things, BlackBerry today announced it’s new partnership with Slack that will improve existing BlackBerry UEM.
BlackBerry UEM is a multiplatform EMM solution from BlackBerry that provides comprehensive device, application, and content management with integrated security and connectivity. It is completely cross platform and supports: BlackBerry 10, iOS, macOS, Android (including devices that use Android for Work and Samsung KNOX), Windows (including Windows 10 tablets and computers), and BlackBerry OS (version 5.0 to 7.1) devices.
To help better-enable developers, we joined the AppConfig Community earlier this year as an EMM member. Established in 2016, AppConfig simplifies deployment and adoption by establishing a common, native approach to development. By using AppConfig, development teams can create configuration policies for applications that work consistently no matter what platform they’re on.
Through our membership in AppConfig, BlackBerry has formed partnerships with promising developers and organizations. Our most recent is with Slack, the powerful workplace collaboration platform. Through AppConfig, we’ve integrated BlackBerry UEM with Slack, supporting the launch of the app’s mobility management offering.
Integrating BlackBerry UEM with Slack through AppConfig will allow our clients to deploy and manage it alongside our Dynamics-secured apps, including BlackBerry Work, 80+ ISV apps, and 4,000+ custom apps developed through our SDKs. As a recognized leader in mobile application management, BlackBerry’s security expertise ensures you can equip your employees with everything they need to stay connected and productive – without worrying about compromising your data.
