Companies have access to more data than ever before as IoT devices become widespread. But, how can businesses effectively analyze that data and take action? The trucking industry is facing many challenges, from a driver shortage to growing demand, and it is turning to IoT technology for solutions. Fleets that have adopted BlackBerry Radar, an asset monitoring solution for trailers, chassis and flatbeds, have integrated dashboards, analytics and custom alerts into day-to-day processes to improve trailer utilization. Learn how to leverage data using actionable insights from the trucking industry.

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.

A hacker and social engineering expert will guide the audience through an eye-opening, interactive open source intelligence gathering attack to highlight the risks posed by our online footprint.

Join us for a panel with industry leaders on the benefits of, and approaches to, deployment and management of non-traditional / EoT devices in the enterprise.

Breakout SessionsDigital TransformationCybersecurityBlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Suite

Bring the power and value of the back office into the palm of your employees’ hands. Empower them to easily and securely access everything they need to engage customers, complete their assignments, receive real-time information updates, and update back office tools all with the convenience of their device of choice.

Automate work processes based on real-time updates from the field, notify employees of relevant information when they need it, how they need it. Eliminate the need for employees to return to the office to update data captured in the field.

A review of the last 12 months by a BlackBerry cybersecurity expert. This session will look back at the main events and threats raised over the last year and consider what challenges we should all be mindful of for the next 12 months. The session will also consider the tried and tested cyber defence strategies that are best suited to keep the bad guys out.

Business transformation requires a platform capable of supporting flexible deployment models with agnostic device support, including for Internet of Things devices, and integration with an ecosystem of third party solution providers. Join us to hear best practices from the field for upgrading from Good Console to BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Manager and prepare your environment for business transformation, EoT/IoT and advanced business workflows.


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!

The panel will discuss whether companies should be more focused on training staff about cybersecurity or removing them from the process completely and looking solely to technology to provide enterprise security.

This session will examine how customers and partners are unlocking the value of the BlackBerry platform to enable compelling use cases and applications.


In our Hyperconnected world, businesses need to embrace opportunities such as the Enterprise of Things to remain competitive. But what is the price of this innovation?

This session will discuss how businesses can successfully optimize workforce, workflow and workplace strategies to remain competitive.

Based on BlackBerry’s rich history of building secure devices, the BlackBerry Cybersecurity team will look at the key considerations to ensuring robust security in products and applications. We will share our wealth of knowledge and expertise in product design, development and validation, highlighting security challenges and how to overcome them. Thinking of buying a product? Our team will advise on the key questions you should be asking.

To enable business and security processes for Workforce, Workplace and Workflow a “hyperconnected” organization works with Business Partners and End Customers. For effective and timely response, information (files, alerts, data) needs to be disseminated quickly and securely. Come and participate in BlackBerry’s plan for the “Workplace” of tomorrow to empower enterprise organizations to be “hyperconnected”’ and address the business and security needs of tomorrow.
