The future of enterprise mobility will see the proliferation of endpoints—10 times the connected devices, 100 times the apps, 1,000 times the amount of data and 10,000 times the collaboration opportunities. This means a massive influx of data from machine-to-machine (M2M) connections, which results in the opportunity for improved security, productivity, communication and collaboration. BlackBerry has long been the device of choice for enterprise users. As a result, enterprise-focused app developers have turned to BlackBerry 10 to leverage features such as BlackBerry Hub, Balance and BlackBerry's security features to build top-flight enterprise apps. This slide show will guide you through several of the most popular enterprise apps, sharing how BlackBerry 10 drives productivity for the enterprise. Devices running BlackBerry 10 are the Q5, Q10, Z3, Z10, Z30 and the P'9982 smartphones. BlackBerry 10 is based on the QNX operating system, which is popular in industrial computers and used in many car computers and that BlackBerry acquired in April 2010.
