RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express Consulting ServicesRIM BlackBerry recently introduced BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express (BESX), offering NO COST software and Client Access Licenses (CALs) while delivering the basic accessibility, security, and administration functions of RIM BlackBerry BES Server such as over-the-air synchronization and remote access to data and applications. But the cost cuts don't end at free server software and CAL licenses. You now get the option to choose the BIS wireless data plan rather than the BES wireless data plan, which can save you up to $20 a month for each of your BlackBerry clients!

BlackBerry BES Server Express can be installed on a Microsoft Exchange or Small Business Server, recommended for as many as 75 users, or on a dedicated server to support as many as 2,000 users. BlackBerry BES Server Express is a great alternative for small- and medium-sized organizations who before now couldn't financially justify integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to their corporate IT system.

The Express version of RIM BlackBerry BES does not provide high availability, system monitoring, SQL database mirroring, or desktop phone/PBX integration and limits the number of supported policies from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone wireless data plan clients will have to execute an initial wired enterprise activation to connect to the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data environment which includes calendar, address books, tasks, and notes. Users with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server data plan can still enterprise activate their devices over the air.
