BlackBerry’s BES10 has the Lowest TCO Multi-Platform Enterprise Mobility Management Solution According to Strategy Analytics

leave a comment »

— BES10 Moves Beyond Basic Security Elements and Excels in the Government and Regulated Environment

BOSTON, May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Strategy Analytics Mobile Workforce Strategies (MWS) service report, “Enterprise Mobility Management: A review of Total Cost of Ownership,” explores the landscape for Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) from a TCO perspective, primarily with reference to a bespoke TCO model of EMM vendors. The vendors assessed in the report include AirWatch (a VMware company), BlackBerry, Citrix, Fiberlink (an IBM company), Good Technology and MobileIron. The report reveals that BlackBerry offers a lower cost implementation and service package than its key competitors in many scenarios, for a commercial grade multi-platform EMM package. The ‘all inclusive’ nature of the BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) offering provides a tangible cost advantage, as it is also clear that BlackBerry still represents the gold standard in the mobile security space.

According to Andrew Brown, Executive Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics and author of the report, “The pricing offered by BES10 creates a lowest-cost migration path from a TCO perspective. We attribute this to multiple factors, including the BES License Trade-up program, the impact of BlackBerry Software Assurance across its Advanced, Priority and Premium support categories, and new tiered support categories”.

“Strategy Analytics’ conducted supporting industry interviews to capture market opinion regarding intangible cost factors which IT departments take into account when deciding about which multi-platform EMM vendor solution to choose. Overall, SA findings suggest that BlackBerry is a strong choice for companies seeking lowest cost of ownership, particularly when there is also a need for a high level of trusted security”, added Martin Bradley, Associate Director, and co-author of the report.

In addition, according to Gina Luk, Senior Analyst of Mobile Workforce Strategies and co- author of the report, “most regulated companies interviewed by SA tended to favor a BlackBerry end-to-end solution for regulated environments as more secure and easier to manage. Therefore, BlackBerry is still seen as the most secure architecture with the lowest cost based on Strategy Analytics’ 5 year TCO”.

BlackBerry supports the full range of security needs; from a basic level up to very high levels of security and control with an end-to-end approach. The Gold level EMM option enables full compliance for government and regulated environments with fewer network components for regulated environments required.
