Hey all you fans of BlackBerry, we are pleased to report that Research In Motion (RIM) has officially announced certification of BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) 5.0.1 with GroupWise 2012. You can find the certification details in the BES Software Compatibility Matrix on RIM's website.
We know there are a lot of people who have been looking forward to this milestone, as GroupWise is the email platform of choice for many organizations across public and private sectors, and, according to a recent Forrester Research report, “The State Of Workforce Technology Adoption: U.S. Benchmark 2011,” Blackberry has the largest installed base of smartphones for work at a 42 percent majority.
With this certification in place, BlackBerry users can upgrade to GroupWise 2012 with full confidence – and take advantage of new GroupWise features like relevance sorting, graphical busy searches, integrations with Novell Vibe and Skype, and much more. Whether they are working from a desktop, a web interface or their BlackBerry device, these users will have access to powerful GroupWise email, calendaring, contact, and task management features that will keep them connected, productive, and operating at peak performance.
