Full Story


  • Emirates needed a mobile solution that would help it provide updates to mobile employees, for example, giving its 12,000 cabin crew their flight schedules and status
  • The company also wanted to provide employees with secure mobile access to data in the corporate systems
  • With a range of potential applications needed, development was slow and the IT department needed a new approach to deliver immediate business value


  • BlackBerry® Smartphones


  • The BlackBerry® solution enabled a community-based app development approach, helping business owners and in-house developers to collaborate quickly
  • Many employees already had BlackBerry smartphones so it was a convenient platform to use, with high security, allowing the IT department to control user access to applications
  • Both developers and users have been very enthusiastic about the applications and at any one time over 30 new applications are in development
