Blackberry Enterprise Server and I go back a long way. From working with version 2.x in 2003/04 to to 5.0.3 over the past 6 months. I had blackberry connect running on my xda (windows phone) in 2005. If only they continued to make software that would connect to different devices eh? I wrote policy articles and moving BES server artices over the years. Only 2 years ago, I presented on High availability on BES at Lotusphere.
Well, today I noticed that nobody in Bluewave was connected to the BES server anymore. They either use Traveler or Google Apps for mail. So the Bes/Bluewave server was quit, the services set to manual and the VM shut down. When I think of all the mistakes RIM made over the past six years a conclusion is simple. I don’t think they have made a right move over that time. Shame.
