Am Tech Analyst: Apple and RIM Both Good Solutions for Enterprise

March 10, 2008 at 6:46 pm Leave a comment

      Shaw Wu of American Technology Research voiced his confidence in the enterprise solutions offered by both Apple and Research In Motion ( RIM ). In a note released to investors today, Wu says that while ActiveSync, recently licensed by Apple from Microsoft, features simplicity and cost efficiency, RIM’s email implementation has better network security and bandwidth efficiency. Wu also believes iPhone’s OS robustness and efficiency plus support for Exchange may give it an edge over RIM devices.

     It should be noted that while both technologies offer a simple interface for users, they differ a great deal in key areas. RIM’s technology has better security through use of dedicated servers and encryption and ActiveSync offers simpler data routes and hence greater cost efficiency. As Wu also mentions, greater potential software development on iPhone is another area that may help Apple gain an edge.
