Developer choice

BlackBerry is an open platform that provides a variety of development languages and runtimes designed to fit your skills. Your choice of development language will be based on a combination of familiarity, pre-existing codebase, and the target devices you're looking to serve.

Each application approach (Adobe® AIR®, HTML5/WebWorks, Native C/C++) is tailored for the developer communities supporting these environments.

Whether you are looking to create a tailored BlackBerry experience using Native/Webworks/Java or wanting to take your application code base cross platform with HTML5/Adobe AIR, there's a solution for you.

Flexible mobile device management platform

With BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 administrators can, from a single interface, access the most common management tasks for BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices. They can even use the interface to access management features on BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express instances across multiple BlackBerry domains.

A single platform to support today's mobile device landscape helps to remove some of the complexity of the BYOD trend. This lets you focus on what really matters to your business.
