RIM BlackBerry BES Server Express is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses who before now couldn't afford integrating employees' BlackBerry smartphones to the corporate IT system.
The Express version of RIM BlackBerry Enterprise Server does not provide high availability, system monitoring, mirroring, or desktop phone integration and reduces the number of supported IT polices from 450 to 35. Also, BIS BlackBerry smartphone data plan users will be required to perform the first direct-attached enterprise activation to integrate with the BES. Subsequently they will have the full BlackBerry mobile messaging and organizer data experience which includes scheduling, contacts, do lists, and notes.
