Today at the BlackBerry Security Summit in London, the company announced a major milestone and update on its growing ISV (independent software vendor) ecosystem.
Through partnerships with ISVs, BlackBerry customers now have access to more than 100 applications, extensions and enterprise software solutions that were built from BlackBerry’s Development Platform.
The company also shared that its BlackBerry Marketplace has been improved to make it easier to search and filter partner solutions, enabling customers and prospects to find what they’re looking for more quickly.
Newly listed or updated partner solutions are also much more visible, making it easier for visitors to see what’s new, while the Marketplace automatically scans whether apps have been updated in the App Store or Google Play, pulling the latest native information into the Marketplace.
Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist, BlackBerry.
“ISV partners and developers want to create products on BlackBerry’s Development Platform because it takes care of all the backend and infrastructure services, and makes their application not just secure, but BlackBerry Secure”
“We want to work with as many partners as possible, in all industries and geographies, so we can offer our customers the broadest range of highly-secure innovative enterprise solutions.”
The BlackBerry Development Platform is an enterprise-grade toolset which enables developers to build secure, powerful, and customized mobility solutions for every use case. The platform augments the world-class mobility capabilities of BlackBerry Dynamics for building secure apps by adding APIs for BlackBerry Unified Endpoint Manager (UEM), BlackBerry Workspaces, BlackBerry Enterprise Identity, BlackBerry 2FA, BBM Enterprise, and BlackBerry Analytics.
With this rich collection of tools, developers can expand their scope to focus on both driving business value to enterprise organizations and enhancing the end user experience through secure, feature-rich mobility solutions.
