RIM said that “a host of applications for the workplace” will be available to support its anticipated launch of BlackBerry 10-powered devices this week.

Companies supporting the OS include Cisco, SAP, Box, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, Truphone, and BigHand.

RIM launched its BlackBerry Partners for Enterprise programme in 2012 to succeed its BlackBerry Alliance program and “increase support to the enterprise software and services community”.

It also rolled out its BlackBerry Jam World Tour – Enterprise Edition to eleven cities, to help enterprise application developers and partners develop for or port existing apps to BlackBerry 10.

Derek Peper, VP of enterprise partnerships at RIM, said: “The developer community for enterprise and government has been incredible in the support of BlackBerry 10. The community sees the potential of the BlackBerry 10 platform to help individuals and organisations make the shift from mobile communications to mobile computing, and have stepped forward with powerful, dynamic and user-friendly applications that can empower employees around the globe.”
