This session is focused on the end of ‘Digital Transformation’ or more accurately the natural end state for any fully formed Digital Transformation strategy. Critical to any business that is driving towards having maximum visibility into every corner of its operations is the need to connect and manage all of its physical and digital assets. Doing so securely with the ability to trust the system and all of its components lies at the heart of the BlackBerry Secure platform strategy and our expansive vision for the Enterprise of Things or EoT, which we define as IoT that is trusted. Over the course of (30) minutes, BlackBerry CTO, Charles Eagan, will provide a deep dive into how our platform can help your business put an end to digital transformation by providing the trusted architecture and components that provide you with an accurate and reliable 365-degree view into the entirety of your enterprise.
This session will examine what’s new in the BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite capabilities across MDM, MAM, containerization, IAM and EFSS. Specific topics include BlackBerry Dynamics (mobile and desktop), BlackBerry UEM, Cloud, BlackBerry Enterprise Identity, BlackBerry Analytics, BlackBerry Workspaces and EoT. Examples will be provided of use cases where customers are leveraging BlackBerry as the single solution to meet all their needs. Integration with Microsoft Office 365 will be discussed.
To date, companies have been able to manage the volume of data, structured and unstructured, with established policies, procedures and tools. However, as technology continues to advance, with machine learning, AI, and ever increasing sophistication of cyber threats, new approaches will be required to maintain control and stabilize threats. The ability to harness the value contained within that data can exponentially increase your bottom line and future competitiveness. Wielding control and securely incorporating relevant data points into real-time decision making processes is the key to moving beyond surviving the data surge to thriving ahead of the competition.
Every line of business within a company relies upon some form of content collaboration amongst various partners. These partners may be colleagues working together to provide a holistic view or external resources such as suppliers, contractors, or customers. Whether it is sharing intellectual property as part of research and development processes, forecast plans required for production, statements of work to be tracked and delivered, or even contracts to be finalized, all of these processes require trust and discretion. What if you could collaborate on content with all your partners seamlessly, easily, and with auditable tracking of data flow? Imagine the competitive advantage you would have against your peers by being able to deliver better quality results faster, securely, and with complete auditability for regulators and/or compliance!
Take your content and collaboration strategy to the next level to drive tighter customer engagement and advanced value added services.
