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.
