BlackBerry on Thursday unveiled its Enterprise of Things (EoT) platform “BlackBerry Spark”, which is designed and built to establish end-to-end, ultra-secure hyperconnectivity.

The EoT platform would be available by the end of 2018.


Hyperconnectivity is a person-to-person and person-to-machine communication in networked organisations and societies.

“BlackBerry Spark” would enable original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to make complex machineries, help enterprises to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and manage smart “things” and allow people to use and trust any hyperconnected “thing” by making military-grade security easy and intuitive to use.

“By combining hyperconnectivity with ultra-security and privacy, ‘BlackBerry Spark’ is the indispensable component of a paradigm shift to ‘things-first’ which holds even greater potential to reshape society,” John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry, said in a statement.

The platform would facilitate consumer-friendly interfaces to complex processes and AI, such as voice-activated speakers with privacy protection.

“The ultimate outcome of this inevitable convergence of ubiquitous mobility and computing power will likely turn on the cybersecurity decisions we make collectively over the next few years,” Chen added.

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
