    NCG Banco: 'We will continue supporting BlackBerry as a corporate solution' - 27 Nov 2013 - Computing News

    Fernando Quintela, mobile solutions manager at NCG Banco, told Computing that the bank will "continue supporting BlackBerry as a corporate solution", after replacing its entire mobile real estate of older BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) and BlackBerry devices with BES 10 and its accompanying new handsets. This includes over 1,650 BlackBerry 10 devices across a bank network spanning 680 branches nationwide.
    [...]
    Quintela described the tendering process as "hard and competitive", with Afaria and Mobile Iron at one point in the running for security infrastructure.
    "Our strategic aim was to provide the maximum user experience for our employees, and we judge our solutions against four main pillars: reliability, speed, usability and security. This would enable us to provide all of the user experience benefits of a personal device but in a business environment and at the same time provide maximum security. This was one of the key factors behind our decision to select the BlackBerry platform," said Quintela.

    Fantastic news. In before the usual suspects come in and say it's irrelevant.

    Nice !!

    It seems from the article the BB10 selection was made after a side-by-side feature/performance comparison with several other vendors which shows the BES/BB10 solution must be somewhat competitive. Even with all the negative market perception, Blackberry still got down-selected.

    Said who ? CNBC ?

    Well, it might be a promising startup but comparing it with BES (as a solution) isn't serious.
    It's only a very small part of it, actually. A "go between" role with a client app ... Nowhere MDM, nowhere BYOD.
    Its secure platform lets employees access the corporate server on their personal device—be it an Apple iPhone or Android.
    But we're OT, aren't we ?
    There's a full thread about it here : http://forums.crackberry.com/general...street-878490/ please enjoy it !

    Definitely this.

    It doesn't appear that it's dependent on legacy at all. It's simply better. And, as I understand it, cheaper too?
