BlackBerry and Appdome have announced a partnership to help cut down the cost of integrating messaging, voice, and video capabilities into existing applications and services.

The BBM Enterprise SDK, first made available in June, was hailed by the company at the time as offering a superior user experience compared to other enterprise instant messaging platforms, with more than 60 ISV partners at the time building and embedding apps through it, including for a major law firm.

The SDK is now available through Appdome’s newest service category, Secure Messaging, to speed up time to market through codeless integration.

“Consumer messaging applications, particularly when used to conduct business, are a basket of unnecessary risk to organisations of any size in every industry,” said Marty Beard, BlackBerry chief operating officer. “The BBM Enterprise SDK puts BlackBerry’s expertise and legacy in secure mobile communications in the hands of developers, empowering them with the ability to securely connect employees with colleagues, clients, and customers.”

“Like other mobile integration choices performed on Appdome, enterprise users can integrate this secure communication platform in a matter of seconds without making changes to code,” said Appdome CEO Tom Tovar.

This is not the first time the two companies have combined; in July last year the duo announced the availability of AppFusion, Appdome’s primary platform, for the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform from BlackBerry, to enable to combine the latter seamlessly and efficiently to enterprise apps.

Earlier this month, as reported by this publication, Appdome announced it had joined the AppConfig Community. Tovar said the company’s goal was to ‘allow developers who build apps for the enterprise to implement AppConfig in seconds.’ in hearing industry leaders discuss subjects like this and sharing their use-cases?
