    A competitor's viewpoint on the recent Good acquisition:
    AirWatch EMEA MD: Why I?m not phased by BlackBerry?s Good buy - Computer Business Review

    Ian Evans talks BlackBerry, Apple, and the growing fruits of the enterprise mobility market.

    Partnerships, collaboration and acquisitions are the name of the game in the current enterprise mobility market. Despite significant spending on R&D from most parties, sometimes buying a company is the best way to acquire expertise.

    BlackBerry's buy of Good Technology is the biggest such acquisition in this market for some time - the biggest, probably, since VMware bought AirWatch, currently the biggest EMM software vendor according to IDC, in 2014.

    Ian Evans, SVP and MD of AirWatch in EMEA, approves of the BlackBerry- Good deal, commenting that it is a positive indicator for the market as a whole.

    "From a corporate perspective we're glad to see this move in the marketplace. We're seeing consolidation and we're seeing maturity in the marketplace, and obviously for us that's a positive signal. BlackBerry certainly has its position in the marketplace and that's evolved over the last few years."

    Evans thinks that the buy should help with BlackBerry's long-term strategy.

    "I think [BlackBerry has] come from a predominant hardware/secured device background. In the last few years we've seen a struggle with them trying to understand how to open up a device portfolio and maybe apply restrictions at the software level so that you get a choice of device and a choice of interaction as well.

    "For them and their future, I do think, if they can make this transition into software this being positive for them.

    "I think Good has had a very strong niche in certain vertical markets and I think those are quite complementary to where BlackBerry has been strong in the past.

    "While they've traditionally competed against each other in the same place, it's quite complementary for where they're heading."

    However, being overtaken as the largest EMM vendor by market share, according to IDC, does not phase Evans.

    "From our position, when you look at our technology stack and our position in the marketplace it's a slightly different one; we tend to look at the portfolio that covers the end-user computing side, which will be agnostic to device, taking identity all the way through secure channels into the data centre and making sure the data centre is secure as well.

    "I think we've also had a very open approach to being device agnostic and OS-agnostic as well. Whether that's a MacBook or a Windows laptop, our position has always been to be the enabler in the technology stack and be integrated to all other technologies as well.

    "We've worked with Good in the past and worked in deployments with a BlackBerry presence.

    "I think this is good for the market. Nobody wants a market of one; that wouldn't be an exciting place at all.

    Regardless of the battles between the vendors, enterprise mobility software is of course dependent on another key stakeholder - the device vendors.

    BlackBerry Venice seems to be generating some interest, if a two day old youtube video is any indication:

    FWIW, since it's the G&M:
    Shopify, Google boosting presence in BlackBerry?s hometown - The Globe and Mail

    BLACKBERRY CUTS

    The moves come as BlackBerry further pares back some of its non-core teams in the region. Sources familiar with the matter said that BlackBerry last week laid off roughly 200 staff on its hardware and design teams.

    “Our intention is to reallocate resources in ways that will best enable us to capitalize on growth opportunities while driving toward sustainable profitability across all facets of our business,” said a spokeswoman for BlackBerry in an e-mail.

    The sources added the moves come after BlackBerry has completed all major hardware and design work on its widely anticipated new handset, code-named Venice. The device is widely expected to arrive in November and run on Google’s Android platform, but come layered with BlackBerry security and productivity features.

    BlackBerry, which is pivoting to focus more on software as it outsources more of the work around its hardware, declined to comment on the device.

    When is comes to security, BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) beats Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) ? Stock Traders Daily NEWS

    Does security matter to you?

    Ultimately, that's the question you should be asking yourself when it comes to mobile and wireless communication, but few people do. Instead, most people look for the aesthetics, or the latest feature, and ultimately those become the motivating force behind their decision.

    Ultimately, it's all about doing what everyone else is doing too, very few people are leaders and buck the trend of the masses, but when it comes to mobile security there is one clear leader.

    The leader is BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)

    This past weekend details were leaked that proved that certain apps for the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) IOS were being hacked, and that made user information vulnerable. Recently, Harman International Industries Inc (NYSE:HAR) has had hacking issues pertaining to connected vehicles as well, and Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) quietly dealt with a hack too, proving that hackers are actively looking to access personal devices over mobile networks.

    Although BBRY fell behind in the Smartphone revolution race when they allowed their handheld market share to dwindle (awful management decisions at the time), one thing remains true, they operate the most secure mobile network on the planet.

    Think back to the hacking incident that happened to Angela Merkel; after that, she turned to Blackberry to prevent future hacks. Look at what happened in Pakistan too, for additional evidence. Pakistan loves to spy on their officials and citizens, but they were unable to spy on people who were using Blackberry's, so Pakistan has outlawed the use of Blackberry phones in that country.

    I am not saying that Blackberry's are the coolest phones on the market, and I am not suggesting that the masses will even care about security because the normal guy out there follows the lead of others and does not make decisions for himself, but for the people who really care about security, mobile security, and even the security of their connected vehicles, there is one very clear leader, BlackBerry.

    While most people will remain focused on the hottest new feature from Apple, those who really want to protect their personal information will turn to BlackBerry. Apple's vulnerability is just another incident proving the threats to personal devices, but those can be avoided. It requires not following the masses, and that means independent thinkers may be the only ones who will consider this, but BlackBerry is a clear winner here.

    Already, most of the independent thinkers on the planet use Blackberry products, including government officials and Financial Industry experts who would be financially responsible for hacked information. One day this will also matter to the general public again too.

    I totally agree! I would not let her out with that cell phone (joking). LMAO

    Now if she had a BlackBerry passport, no! a BlackBerry classic that would suit her image better. She should ask Kim for fashion advice on accessories.

    One of the things that people haven't discussed much about BBRY falling in line with Google and joining the OHA - is that it would then allow other OHA OEMs to make hardware for them (Amazon for example has to buy its hardware off a non-OHA partner) - which would fit with that story.
