If small to medium-sized businesses move from POP3 and web-based email applications to Microsoft® Exchange, IBM® Lotus® Domino®, or Novell® GroupWise® so that they can support mobile devices and use messaging and collaboration services, they can gain new revenue opportunities and reduce the cost of their operations. Some small to medium-sized businesses might not want to install and run a messaging environment that is complex and requires management of spam email messages, virus protection, storage and archiving, and compliance regulations so they can use the hosted messaging services that your organization can offer instead. Your organization can install and run a messaging environment for the small to medium-sized businesses.
If you configure Hosted BlackBerry® services, you can offer BlackBerry services to the small to medium-sized businesses that are your organization's customers. You can configure Hosted BlackBerry services on a BlackBerry® Enterprise Server in your organization's environment so that your organization's customers can subscribe to the services that the BlackBerry Enterprise Server provides. Hosted BlackBerry services permits your organization's customers to offer BlackBerry services to the BlackBerry device users in their environment without installing a BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
