Blackberry The Rise The Fall and The Loyals

Updated

on

Five years ago, Research in Motion, maker of the BlackBerry, was one of the most well know technology companies in the whole wide world. The BlackBerry dominated the whole cellphone world, having a blackberry was considered a must have for everyone in the business? The BlackBerry came with a wonderful physical keyboard, the addiction to the physical freedom of typing gave the name CrackBerry.

These days, it seem like the CrackBerry is now known as the SlackBerry. The shares of the boosting brand have are lowered by 75 per cent these years. In 2009 Blackberry has 45 per cent share in the smartphone world which has decreased to a shocking 10 percent in 2014, t

The easy explanation for what happened to R.I.M. is that, like so many other companies, it got run over by Apple. But the real problem is that the technology world changed, and R.I.M. didn’t. The BlackBerry was designed for businesses. This stubbornness helped R.I.M. To maintain its true followers who required security and reliability, BB phones worked on their owN BlackBerry Internet Services or BlackBerry Enterprise Services.

This pattern—of winning over business and government markets and then reaching consumers—is a time-honored one but the need of changing with changing need of consumers is where R.I.M lacked behind.

It didn’t. In fact, even as the BlackBerry was at the height of its popularity, we were entering the age of the consumerization of I.T. In this new era, technological diffusion started to flow the other way—from consumers to businesses. Social media went from being an annoying fad in teenagers to an unavoidable part of many businesses work. Tablets, which many initially thought were just underpowered laptops and were considered just showoffs, soon became common among salesmen, hospital staffs,retailers and students. So, too, with the iPhone and Androids. They’ve always been targeted at consumers, and tend to come with stuff that I.T. departments hate, like all those apps. Yet, because employees love them, businesses have adapted (and the iPhone and Androids have upgraded security to make themselves more business-friendly). As a result, the iPhone and Androids now control more than half the corporate mobile market.

Consumerization has been disastrous for R.I.M., because the company has appeared clueless about what consumers want moreover what the consumer needs R.I.M took a long time to come up with a touchscreen phone and when they did, the results were not satisfactory. Although the BlackBerry brand name was once seen as a revolutionary success, over time R.I.M.’s product line became bewilderingly large, with inscrutable model names. If you’re a consumer, do you want the 8300 or the seemingly identical 8330? And the BlackBerry’s closed system has left R.I.M. ill equipped for a world in which phones and tablets are platforms for the whole app ecosystem.

With the consmueristion of IT, blackberry faced another smack as the work environments changed. Being a loyal BlackBerry user since my eighth grade, I personally believe that the closed systems and keeping the brand business oriented may have ruined the shares for company, I decided to be loyal to the brand in the coming years too.
Once a Blackberry User forever a Blackberry user.

What Is MDM And Does Your Business Need It?

Published

on

The most important aspect of any business is the data each company holds that will allow them to become a better company as time moves forward. The data held can often be spread across multiple databases, paper records, and the documents held by different departments within your company. If you are looking to take your data to the next level, you should be looking to understand the Gartner master data management system that allows all your records to be held in a single location. Whether you choose to place your data in the Cloud or on your server, Gartner explains the most important choices you need to make are how will you avoid overlaps and inaccuracies in your records through your Master Data Management.

What is MDM?

This is the first question you will be asked when you step into the office of your CEO and tell them of the need to invest in this technology. One of the toughest questions you will be asked is what exactly MDM is and how can we benefit from the investment in this technology. Master Data Management is a system where the data your company holds will be compared and collated to ensure the accuracy of the information you are holding is as high as possible. Data Quality Pro explains the success of Master Data Management processes has been growing over the last few years with those who get the most from the process of identifying a problem and looking for the best way of solving it.

Examples of Master Data Management

When you are being questioned about whether your company needs Gartner Master Data Management applications there are multiple ways of looking at the work being done at different levels to improve the work of your business.

Any company that has separate sales and distribution departments should already have been investing in MDM because these companies will see a major benefit to the success of their business. The first point of contact for most clients is the sales team who they will call when they have problems or want to place an order. One of the most common issues seen in sales environments is a change of address, phone number, or other contact information being reported to the sales team but not to the distribution center. Using MDM means your technology will be able to scan the latest information and update all aspects of your data to reflect the latest information your company has for all individuals to enjoy.

Improve Customer Experience

The customer experience is vital to all companies who are hoping to bring about a change in the way they interact with their clients. If you are hoping to avoid the problems with client data that can cause long-term issues to your relationship with any customer, you should be investing in Gartner Master Data Management software.

There is little more annoying for a customer than having to repeatedly update their information because a business is still using paper records or has not linked the data stored by a different department. BizTech Magazine reports the best in MDM software will be able to link to a Cloud-based service to allow the company to make the most of their time and facilitate a positive transfer of data. There are already impressive templates used by Gartner and other companies that can provide an excellent starting point for storing and transferring data within and outside a business.

Gaining a Business Advantage

In an era when the customer experience is becoming increasingly important, MDM is playing an important role for businesses of all sizes and types. Making the same mistakes as have been seen in the past is no longer an option at a time when customers will quickly take their business to another company if they become annoyed with continual mistakes. By working with a professional master data management company, the success you will find will be magnified as you move forward with your business in a new environment of accuracy.

The global nature of business and the continued increase in online sales means your business could struggle to store and manage customer data from all over the world. However, by integrating MDM into your business you will find you have a better chance of providing the customer service most customers hope to see as they move through transactions with your business.
