    BlackBerry names Sims as enterprise services president

    2013-12-17 17:46 ET - News Release



    Mr. John Chen reports

    BLACKBERRY APPOINTS LEADER FOR ENTERPRISE SERVICES BUSINESS

    John Sims will join BlackBerry Ltd. as president, global enterprise services.

    "I am pleased to welcome such a seasoned executive as John to BlackBerry to help lead our key business operations through our ongoing reorganization and transition," said John Chen, executive chair and chief executive officer of BlackBerry. "His extensive experience in transforming businesses, redefining brands and motivating teams will be a tremendous asset to BlackBerry as we reshape the company to be more nimble and focused. The changes we are making demonstrate our commitment to innovating for current customers who count on BlackBerry, and the new users who are just learning how powerful and compelling the BlackBerry 10 platform can be. John will be central to all of those efforts."

    Mr. Sims joins BlackBerry in January from SAP, where he served as president of SAP's mobile services business. He has more than 20 years of experience with companies that supply mobile telecommunications products and services to wireless operators. Before joining SAP, Mr. Sims held leadership positions at 724 Solutions, TANTAU Software, Intrado and Tandem Computers. He serves on the board of directors and executive committee of CTIA.
    There!
    He said it..... powerful and compelling BB10

    Wasn't someone too concerned that the press releases omitted BB10, and concluded that it meant that it was to be 'discontinued'???

    None of my business and to each his own but I am reminded of this:
    "When Mr. Chen took over, he told employees during a town-hall meeting, "Things are going to get worse before they get better" ,,, according to a person in attendance that day.
    He also spoke of a 6Q horizon... I wouldn't be surprised if the SP was to go down more for a while yet... but medium term, I am starting to think things are looking up... Must be my new meds kicking in!

    Looks like some of those phones were probably some of the $199 boxing day Z10's. No surprise though given BlackBerry's state in the US.

    You can't on the TSX. Those doing pre/after hours trading in BBRY are trading on NASDAQ. Between their web site and that of your broker you should be able to figure out how to do it for your own situation.

    let me go first...

    i think they will be foolish enough if Chen said "BB 10 will be discontinued" when they still have millions in the inventory....it just the first sign for people to start to dropping BB phone, massive drop on stock price because another inventory write down. they still need good momentum to push BES and BBM to other platform.

    do it like Thorsten doing with Playbook....say they will give BB10 to Playbook after they sell hundred thousand more than make an excuse...

    Another ER comin' up. I must say, I'm not very optimistic. The last 3 I was involved in either sank the SP or stalled it... Not sure what to say. Personally, I'd be very cautious. Good luck.

    Also wondering any pertaining buy-out package deals to departed....

    Just a wild guess, but probably because of money.

    I hope, you are well, Morgan.

    I like how John Chen acts quickly, after the news of firing two executives earlier, with this hiring news. John Sims seems to have a matching background to help Blackberry in the enterprise sector, and it, hopefully, show even greater confidence for the enterprise customers to use Blackberry.

    I think they will say they are waiting until the free test period to end before releasing final numbers for paid / operational vs free test / pilot and will provide the specific BES server numbers and seats in the next ER.
    Testing period will virtually never end.
    There was a free BES5->BES10 upgrade period until last month (or is is this month ?), now BlackBerry is creating a new "software insurance" plan that will allow automatic upgrades. That's something important to keep in mind, somewhere ...

    But BES comes with 3X 50 (50 per service levels) free 60 days CALs.

    BTW, it's Device based licences and I've bee wrong about pricing; the price is the same for BB or non BB devices and vary only depending of security/usage levels. (More to come later about this)

    Seems like a good hire. I am encouraged the new CEO seems to have a plan and is trying to execute. I hope he has enough time and cash to pull it off. I am looking forward to the conference call and I am guessing he will know the rights things to say to help and not hurt the cause. At least is now looks like BBRY has a plan and at least a little bit of urgency. Now let's see them execute.
    If the plan is good, money is not the problem. They have enough tangible assets to borrow with guarantee. IMHO.

    Oh, what a nice sentence. Much better than Thorstens bold statements about how great BB10 is (these kind of statements became ridiculous at some point).
    The "new users who are just learning" contains an explanation, that customer still need time to see power of the platform.

    Just wanted to say that Chen seems to choose his words more wisely than Thorsten.

    I am almost convinced, that BB10 is still the key of Chens strategy.
    Now he should state, that new BB10 devices will be sold 2014 and everything is OK for me
