Research in Motion today announced (finally) that BlackBerry Enterprise Server for MDS applications is now available. Integrating MDS into BES will allow organizations to develop mobile applications that don’t have to rely on email for data transmission. BES for MDS will allow applications to use “push” technology to transport data to and from BlackBerry handheld devices.

“Many of our customers want a solution that can decouple wireless email from other wireless applications, while providing the same level of security and control that they trust and rely upon in BlackBerry,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry Enterprise Server for MDS Applications benefits our enterprise customers as well as the growing community of developers, software vendors, systems integrators and value added resellers that are creating a rich ecosystem of business applications for BlackBerry.”
