BlackBerry and Emtek Forge Partnership to Accelerate and Advance BBM's Consumer Business Globally

Alliance to transform BBM's cross-platform offerings through new content-rich features and innovative BBM services

WATERLOO, ONTARIO and JAKARTA, INDONESIA--(Marketwired - Jun 27, 2016) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB), a global leader in secure mobile communications, announced a strategic alliance with PT Elang Mahkota Teknologi Tbk. (Emtek) (IDX:EMTK)(JSX:EMTK) that will provide cross-platform BBM users with access to enriched content and services. This landmark partnership accelerates BlackBerry's vision to advance BBM for the consumer market through a licensing agreement with Emtek Group that enables the company to develop new BBM applications and services for Android, iOS and Windows Phones. To strengthen the alliance, Emtek's digital content arm KMK Online will establish an office in the Toronto area to work closely with BlackBerry. KMK Online has a wide breadth of media assets that will be combined with more than 20 of Emtek's businesses and investments to bring significant value and services to BBM. These investments span across broadcast television, Web properties, content production and artists. This means, in the coming months, users will have access to a plethora of content such as national free-to-air (FTA) television stations, one of the leading online video platforms, three exclusive production houses and a library of more than 100,000 hours of TV and premium content, just to name a few. BlackBerry will also extend its open mobility ecosystem by making the BBM application program interface (API) available to Emtek in order to accelerate the growth of partners and service providers. Integrating BBM's social, chat, commerce and content capabilities with Emtek's substantial portfolio of assets and ecosystem will help maximize the potential of BBM to give customers access to new:

Content - music and video streaming, games, sports and news channels, celebrity blogs and more
Commerce - shopping, gifting and coupons/vouchers
Online to Offline Commerce - booking movies, travel, health services or job postings
Finance - payment processing, money transfer, mobile phone re-charge, and utilities billing

As one of the leading messaging services, BBM cross-platform has seen significant popularity in Indonesia, growing to nearly 60 million monthly active users. Emtek, as Indonesia's leading media content company, is an ideal partner to advance the innovation and capabilities of the BBM platform. Licensing BlackBerry software and IP is part of the company's strategy to increase revenue and improve margins. Not only does the alliance with Emtek facilitate this goal, it achieves operational and cost efficiencies while driving growth in the BBM business as Emtek will invest in people, infrastructure, technology development and the ecosystem. "Emtek's impressive background and pedigree in entertainment, content and technology makes them the perfect partner to maximize the potential of BlackBerry's messaging platform while meeting our financial and operational goals," said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry. "Our BBM users are passionate people that truly value BBM as the best way to share and connect with each other. We wanted to continue to offer our users even more with the most content-rich media and new services such as e-commerce, video, music and games." "Our partnership with BlackBerry will allow BBM users to access exclusive content from some of Emtek's most sought-after entertainment, technology and digital products and services," said Alvin Sariaatmadja, CEO of Emtek. "We see significant opportunity to grow the consumer BBM business globally and are excited to invest in research and development to further advance BBM." Partnering with Emtek enables the growth of both consumer and enterprise BBM. As Emtek advances the platform for the consumer market, BlackBerry will continue to advance the platform for enterprise with BBM Protected, the world's most secure cross-platform messaging service. BBM Protected provides enterprise-grade messaging for Android, iOS, BB10 and BBOS, and enables users to stay connected and engaged with each other through real time messaging, voice and video communications.

New QNX Platform Accelerates Development of Digital Instrument Clusters

Platform enables customers to deliver compelling user experiences while addressing stringent safety requirements

NOVI, MICHIGAN--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2016) - TU-Automotive Detroit Conference - QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited (TSX:BB)(NASDAQ:BBRY), today announced the latest addition to its portfolio of automotive safety products, the QNX® Platform for Instrument Clusters. Digital instrument clusters constitute one of the fastest-growing segments in automotive electronics. Using sophisticated 2D and 3D graphics, these devices can display traditional instrument cluster information, such as speed and RPM, as well as rich, context-sensitive information supplied by other vehicle subsystems, including turn-by-turn directions, local speed limits, rearview camera video and collision warnings. According to Strategy Analytics, the combined demand for hybrid and fully digital instrument clusters will increase from 8.7 million units in 2015 to 42.2 million by 2023. With deployments in over 60 million cars, QNX has become the leading software supplier for vehicle infotainment systems. Since 2009, QNX technology has also been powering digital instrument clusters in vehicle brands such as Alfa Romeo, Audi, Corvette, Jaguar and Range Rover. The QNX Platform for Instrument Clusters builds on this expertise to help customers create cluster solutions that offer a superior user experience while satisfying stringent safety requirements. With the new platform, QNX now offers a comprehensive solution for instrument cluster developers, which includes:

The QNX OS for Safety, an ISO 26262-certified OS and toolchain that supports all of the automotive safety integrity levels, from ASIL A to ASIL D, required for clusters and other critical vehicle systems
A 2D/3D graphics framework that is based on OpenGL and is set to be certified for use in clusters that comply with the ISO 26262 functional safety standard
A software framework that protects safety-critical cluster functions from interference by other software components, enabling greater reliability and easier system-level certification
A reference implementation, with source code, that gives developers a jumpstart on building fully digital instrument clusters

To pre-qualify the platform's graphics framework to the ISO 26262 standard, QNX Software Systems is working closely with TÜV Rheinland, a world leader in functional safety assessments. "We are seeing growing interest in ISO 26262, which has emerged worldwide as a leading standard for automotive functional safety, especially in the software domain," said Heinz Gall, Head of the Functional Safety & Security Business Unit of TÜV Rheinland. "As a world leader in functional safety assessment, we support automotive companies to help them develop a safety culture and adopt best-in-class safety practices. The QNX Neutrino OS was the first realtime OS we assessed to ISO 26262 ASIL D as a Safety Element out of Context, and we will extend our collaboration with QNX Software Systems into the new domain of graphics software for instrument clusters."

BlackBerry Enhances Single Secure Platform for Multi-OS Device, Application and Content Management

Fully integrated solution for MDM, MAM and MCM will provide businesses with unprecedented control of complete mobile assets from a single unified administrative experience

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2016) - BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB), a global leader in secure mobile communications, today announced that it has completed another step of its integration of the BES®12, Good Dynamics and WatchDox® by BlackBerry products for a single, comprehensive management experience. Whereas best of breed management of devices, apps and content has traditionally required multiple consoles from multiple vendors, with BlackBerry´s multi-OS EMM platform administrators will be able to securely manage their full mobile deployment at the device, app and content layer from a single secure platform with unmatched control. In addition, BlackBerry will introduce AtHoc for Good Dynamics and new split billing solutions with BlackBerry® WorkLife™. "With the latest enterprise portfolio enhancements, our Good Secure EMM Suites will provide customers with flexibility to apply security and policies across the various device, OS, container, application, network and file layers, from a single unified platform and console," said Billy Ho, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Product and Value Added Solutions, BlackBerry. BlackBerry continues to integrate key capabilities from its enterprise software portfolio into the Good Secure EMM Suites to provide organizations with the flexibility they need as they use mobility to empower employees and transform their business. Enterprises typically consist of different user bases and data sensitivities that require multiple security approaches. In addition, many organizations enable various device ownership models such as BYOD, COPE or COBO that create different requirements for protecting user privacy. By integrating BES12, Good Dynamics and WatchDox by BlackBerry, organizations can choose the right approach across all users, device and OS platforms and ownership models without creating administrative overhead and while controlling their TCO spend. Customers will be able to deploy Good Dynamics apps in KNOX Workspace, combining the BES12 unique end-end management and security capabilities for KNOX Workspace devices with the rich experience of the Good Dynamics platform and productivity apps. Customers can then leverage a unified self-service portal that can be customized by the organization, and that delivers a refreshed end-user experience. In addition to enhancing the unified administrative experience for the Good Secure EMM Suites, BlackBerry also announced the AtHoc mobile app for Good and split billing features with BlackBerry WorkLife. These new capabilities will be integrated with the Good Dynamics platform, enhancing the security and deployment options for these solutions.

Networked crisis communication - The AtHoc mobile app is being built specifically for the Good Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform putting the industry's leading crisis communications capabilities in the palm of a hand. The AtHoc app will simplify the user experience while adding security and controls that users have come to expect from the Good platform. During an event, users of the app can receive critical alerts, send one-click duress signals, and share photos and video along with their real-time GPS location to provide further awareness and protection.
Split billing for cost control - with BlackBerry® WorkLife™ - Advanced Analytics, users can monitor cellular data usage of any Good Dynamics, custom built and third-party applications developed with the Good Dynamics SDK v2.0 or later, produce reports and shape usage policies, all without infringing on personal privacy or content. Companies can see the exact cellular data usage over time by app, user, device or carrier graphically, with filters so they can quickly identify patterns or drill down into the details. The data can be also exported for offline analysis to support stipend calculations, chargeback or compliance demands. Personal data usage or activity on the same device is never tracked, and no change in user behavior or mobile device installations are required.

BlackBerry® WorkLife™ - Reimbursement goes a step further by facilitating the reimbursement process for work-related data usage to cover the charges employees incur when they use approved business apps on iOS and Android™ devices. This way, organizations can ensure they're paying only for the data employees use for work, reducing or eliminating stipends and reimbursement programs while pre-empting HR, tax and compliance issues at the same time.



The enterprise software portfolio updates and BlackBerry WorkLife solutions will be launching at the end of June 2016, and the AtHoc mobile app for Good will be available at the end of July 2016.
