So RIM isn’t a fail according to Vice President of Blackberry Security; at least not in the U.S government segment
Up till now RIM’s blackberry news currently haven’t been very decent. At least this is what has been reflected from various sources. This can also be inferred from the 77% loss of stocks in the previous year. But then Scot Totzke vice, president of BlackBerry security have said in an interview that RIM government market share is probably increasing.
This is what he said:
“Compared to the enterprise over the last year and a half or so, the federal business on whole is up,” said Totzke, who also runs RIM’s U.S. government sales business. “The employee base is shrinking, so if we’re looking at a market with fewer employees and our install base is stable to slightly up, that would seem to indicate that we have an increasing market share.”
Looking at the increasing Android and iOS market, RIM plans to remain confined to a specific community; the enterprise market. That is one market they cannot afford to lose. Keeping this in mind, the company is planning to launch BB10 devices, and Mobile Fusion that is promising it just all depends on execution.
Totzke also shared plans about reclaiming the market. “RIM will make a “significant investment” in promotions in the Washington area in coming weeks to drum up awareness of what new BlackBerry 7 phones offer, including better Web browsing and touch-screen navigation, Totzke said.” “We need to help customers understand what is possible” with the devices, said Totzke
