RIM has announced the acquisition of ubitexx (makers of ubi-Suite, a device management system) and by doing so will bring Blackberry Enterprise Server to iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad.
The multi-platform BlackBerry Enterprise Solution will be comprised of optional architectural components based on the configuration of an organizationâ€™s mobile deployment and their operational needs. Optional components will include BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express for BlackBerry devices, and a separate, secure device management server for Android and iOS devices (based on the foundation of ubi-Suite from ubitexx). It will be possible to deploy multiple components in a virtualized environment on a single server.
Looks like RIM wants to bring the love for iOS users, albeit in a limited capacity. What’s next, BBM for iOS?
