A host of applications for the workplace developed by enterprises and enterprise developers will be available when BlackBerry 10 launches on January 30.

Cisco, SAP and The Wall Street Journal head the list of many companies who will have applications ready upon the release date.

“The developer community for enterprise and government has been incredible in the support of BlackBerry 10,” says Derek Peper, vice president, Enterprise Partnerships, Research In Motion.

“The community sees the potential of the BlackBerry 10 platform to help individuals and organisations make the shift from mobile communications to mobile computing, and have stepped forward with powerful, dynamic and user-friendly applications that can empower employees around the globe.”

Cisco:

“We’re proud to extend Cisco’s WebEx technology to the BlackBerry 10 platform letting customers of any size join, start, view content, and stay connected to WebEx meetings right from their BlackBerry 10 smartphone,” says Raj Gossain, vice president, Product Management, Cisco.

“Our customers access Cisco collaboration capabilities, such as instant messaging, IP voice calling and conferencing on BlackBerry devices to stay connected anywhere, anytime, and with anyone.

"RIM and Cisco have worked together to develop an application that is user friendly and meets the needs of our global customers.”

SAP:

"SAP is committed to building beautiful, easy-to-use mobile apps to help our customers run their business better,” says Pete Graham, director of Finance Solutions & Mobility, SAP.

"We are having a very good experience developing enterprise-grade finance apps on the BlackBerry 10 platform using the SAP Mobile Platform.

"With the SAP Mobile Platform the mobile app development community can build apps that can run on both the new BlackBerry 10 and the existing BlackBerry platforms and devices."

Citrix:

“As a leader in enterprise mobility, Citrix provides secure apps and data for any device on any platform," says Chris Fleck, vice president, Mobile Solutions and Alliances, Citrix.

"With the BlackBerry 10 platform coming to the market, we are working with the RIM development teams to support BlackBerry 10 enterprise users with access to Citrix applications,”

Wall Street Journal:

“The debut of The Wall Street Journal’s app for BlackBerry 10 is the latest evolution in our ‘WSJ Everywhere’ digital strategy to meet new audiences through new digital platforms,” says Alisa Bowen, head of Product for Dow Jones & Company.

“The global reach of the BlackBerry platform allows us to continue expanding upon our own international growth, particularly in Asia, Europe and South America.”
