Bıs Ve Bes'ten Sonra şimdi De Besx!
RIM Blackberry için BIS ve BES'ten sonra simdi de BESX hizmetini başlatıyor...
Weve been able to independently confirm the following details, though we dont believe we have all of the information surrounding this announcement yet.
With that said, according to multiple RIM employees, RIMs co-CEO Mike Lazaridis will be making a huge announcement on Tuesday in Barcelona. The announcement is said to be about (at least in part) BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express. Were told this will be relaunched as a free and unlimited user BlackBerry Enterprise Server. You heard that right a completely free and unlimited user BlackBerry Enterprise Server. We are under the impression BESX will use a users existing BIS data plan and not require the more expensive data feature, though this isnt confirmed. Hit the jump for more!
Additionally, weve been told that BlackBerry Shield for BIS might get a shout out, too. I dont know what that service is, but maybe its a remote lock/remote wipe feature for BIS subscribers, or possibly ties into what we describe below? RIM employees have been touting this new BESX offering as an ActiveSync killer and while were sure it will help small businesses and other users hooked on ActiveSync, this might not help all that much if you still need that second server for the BES. The thing is, thats kind of why we feel we dont have the full story at this point what if RIM is going to do something like a BES in the cloud for BIS users? Give them full OTA syncing, backups, remote wipe/lock, all while not requiring a dedicated BES server? That seems much more ***y to our ears and eyes, but again, thats just speculation based on the limited amount of information RIM employees have shared with us.
We actually had a RIM employee go on record and give us a quote. When asked about thoughts on the announcement, the employee said, Internally we are pumped about it. Perfect for SME, and people who are looking at using ActiveSync with other smartphones. Its not quite RIM-like, giving software with unlimited users away, but a great move.
Look for this new service (or services) to launch March 1st. More info as we get it!
