Meet Jim Tobin – Software & Services


[ YouTube link for mobile viewing ]

Hello Inside BlackBerry® for Business blog community! I’m excited to join the conversation here on the blog, and I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself. I’m Jim Tobin, SVP of the Software, Services & Enterprise Markets business unit at Research In Motion® (RIM®). I’m responsible for setting the business direction for RIM’s software, services and app eco-system efforts. This is for our customers and partners. I also have the pleasure of guiding all the eco-system dimensions of the forthcoming, exciting BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet.

The past few months have been a fantastic progression. We’ve released a fair bit of BlackBerry PlayBook tablet product news, and have provided hands-on demonstrations recently at CES, MWC and many other events. As we continue to share news of upcoming applications and partnerships, it naturally sparks discussions around use-cases, capabilities and what’s possible with a device like this. I recently sat down to share some thoughts about what the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet means for the enterprise, and how we built this product and platform with today’s CIO in mind.

I welcome your comments. Stay tuned for more BlackBerry PlayBook tablet details, and I look forward to continuing the conversation.
