BlackBerry +5% on enterprise partnership with Microsoft

WATERLOO, ONTARIO and REDMOND, Wash.

To enable the integration, BlackBerry has developed a software product called BlackBerry Enterprise Bridge, which will be sold on a per-user subscription basis. Through this partnership, the companies collaborated on the new BlackBerry Enterprise Bridge platform, a technology that provides a way for their joint customers to use native Microsoft mobile apps from within BlackBerry Dynamics.

Microsoft and BlackBerry have announced a partnership that will see the Canadian firm offer a secure environment for Office apps. You will be able to work on that Excel file across devices without having to make your IT department nervous.

The company explained that giving users access to its mobile apps inside BlackBerry Dynamics provides enterprise users "a consistent experience" when working with Office 365 files. "BlackBerry Enterprise "BRIDGE" addresses this and is an example of how BlackBerry and Microsoft continue to securely enable workforces to be highly productive in connected world", Carl Wiese, President of Global Sales at BlackBerry, said in a statement late Monday.

In the words of Judson Althoff, executive vice president of Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft.

It is clear this new deal is aimed firmly at the enterprise market, and is meant to provide a more seamless mobile experience for end-users.

Further, the Blackberry Secure platform has been integrated with Microsoft's own Azure cloud platform, with applications such as Blackberry UEM Cloud, Blackberry Workspaces and Blackberry Dynamics all now being available on Azure. This is why in the past companies would subscribe for services like BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Based in Waterloo, Ontario, the company was founded in 1984 and operates in North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Middle East, Latin America and Africa. Although analysts still generally seem rather skeptical about BlackBerry Ltd (BB) stock, Schaeffer's Investment Research reports that the options market has a much more optimistic view of it, citing data from the International Securities Exchange, the NASDAQ OMX PHLX and Chicago Board Options Exchange.
