I guess that makes sense from the infrastructure side. But I'm surprised that alot of enterprises are still on board with RIM with all of the talk of their demise. But if they still have support, it makes sense to ride it out and see what they have to offer.

This platform will make RIM more relevant in the corporate world.

That is shifting focus from a product company to a services company for RIM. In my opinion the fate of their Blackberry is further endangered by such move.

Enterprise users can choose on iCloud as an alternative. It is supposed to be equally safe and secure.

pocharle, It's in trouble and sales are down but the Blackberry messaging system is still about the most secure for enterprise users and as RIM pointed out, many CIOs are concerned about the proliferation of many platforms on their networks. If Mobile Fusion can connect all these devices, the corporate users can sleep better knowing the communications are safe.

But isn't the messaging security space already saturated. What could RIM offer that is leaps and bounds better or provide more value than the existing vendors dedicated to this space?

For a very long time now, RIM has established itself as the best in mobile management in enterprise service. I hope the mobile Fusion would enable RIM to reverse its plummeting revenue and profit.

Exactly. To me, the 'Mobile Fusion'  part of the name accents the ability for the software to cooperate across multiple platforms. Keeping the Blackberry part of the name works against that perception. It's not about promoting the company here, it's about promoting the product.

Amazon can afford to do this but can RIM? RIM should have done something earlier and it's not clear now whether the current moves would change its situation.

Sounds like they are following the model of Amazon giving away cheap tablets and collecting money from contents. RIM would then drop the price of blackberry further to gain more customers. They can't increase the revenue much from cloud service without gaining a lot more customers.
