Why Read This Report

BlackBerry is a great enterprise email device today. But what else can it do for information workers? It turns out that the BlackBerry platform is also an enterprise-grade tool kit to build mobile content and collaboration applications. ISV support from companies like IBM, Intuition, and WICKSoft for these information worker applications demonstrates the potential. Although information and knowledge management pros have a to-do list for RIM — including a better interface and more applications — there's more than enough in place to build the business case for mobile collaboration today.
