Migrating Blackberry Policies to MobileIron
As the next generation of smartphones and tablets enters the market, employees want the freedom to choose their own devices and use apps that meet their needs. Analyst recommendations that organizations migrate off BlackBerry have forced IT departments to develop contingency plans for their existing mission-critical BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) deployments. They are looking for ways to integrate Android and iOS into a multi-OS environment, while controlling costs and protecting the organization’s data as it moves about the world.
MobileIron helps customers add other mobile apps and devices to their portfolio and migrate their BlackBerry installation to other solutions. We have worked with many customers who have migrated from BlackBerry-only environments to multi-OS deployments.
This whitepaper can be used to determine how to translate Blackberry BES 5 policies into equivalent MobileIron policies.
