BlackBerry® is hosting the BlackBerry® Experience Foru for the enterprise community in Johannesburg today.

More than 350 South African enterprise customers and developers are attending the full day event (at Sandton Convention Centre), which is focused on showcasing the business benefits of the BlackBerry® 10 platform with the BlackBerry® Z10 smartphone and BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10.

Attendees will learn how BlackBerry’s completely re-invented suite of products, solutions and services work seamlessly together to enable enterprises of all sizes to easily deploy, manage, and secure BYOD and corporate mobile devices.

The event will feature customer presentations from leading local companies such as SAP, Cisco and Oracle.

More than 25 South African organisations are already running BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, while a further 100 are currently trialling BlackBerry 10. These include Alexander Forbes, Bowman Gilfillan, Dimension Data, Edcon, Netcare and Tiger Brands.

Says Alexandra Zagury, Managing Director, South and Southern Africa at BlackBerry. “We are delighted by the warm response that BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 have received from local public and private sector organisations looking for the gold standard in enterprise mobility management. Today, attendees will hear more about how this platform provides optimal usability and functionality for business customers, with no compromise to security and manageability.”
