BlackBerry has announced a new cloud service for managing users and applications on BlackBerry devices, iOS, and Android. The service requires no servers to install, and devices can be easily managed and secured. Managing devices and users on the service will also require no IT experience, according to BlackBerry:
Managers will also be able to build a catalog of apps from the App Store, the Google Play Store, and BlackBerry World store, and then see app distribution and usage among all users. An end-user can perform common tasks for their devices through a self-service portal, which BlackBerry hopes will allow users to help themselves, reducing calls to a helpdesk.
Availibility of the service has yet to be announced.
Meanwhile, BBM for iOS and Android, BlackBerry's much-vaunted messaging service, is still MIA following an aborted launch last month.
