Enterprises Need More Than Email: Enable Cross-Platform Apps

As a Blackberry Developer Evangelist at Blackberry (, Manny will be talking about how enterprises can benefit from cross-platform apps.

Choice: users demand it, developers require it. In a world with so many choices and where mobile devices are as powerful as the computers they are replacing, how can enterprises move beyond using these devices solely for mobile email? This session will review many of the challenges and opportunities available for enterprises to move beyond email today and mobilize their internal tools and services.

Manny Elawar is a BlackBerry Developer Evangelist at BlackBerry ( His main focus is reaching out to the developer community and getting them excited about generating top quality apps for the BlackBerry 10 Platform.

Manny graduated from the Software Engineering program at Western University, and the Honors Business Administration program at the Richard Ivey School of Business. His primary work at BlackBerry has involved software development in the Enterprise department, where he developed internal simulation tools that simulated up to millions of BlackBerry devices.
