11:48 EDTIBMIBM introduces new e-mail application for business
IBM announced earlier today that it is reinventing enterprise email with a new freemium social collaboration offering that uses built-in analytics to give individuals a new way to converse, find the right people and information fast, and get work done. The company added, "IBM Verse stems from the company's $100M investment in design innovation and brings together its leading cloud, analytics, social and security platforms to transform the future of work. IBM Verse takes a vastly different approach to enterprise email by integrating the many ways employees connect each day – via email, meetings, calendars, file sharing, instant messaging, social updates, video chats and more – through a single collaboration environment. It is the first messaging system to feature 'faceted search,' which enables users to pinpoint and retrieve specific information they're seeking across all the various types of content within their email. IBM Verse uses built-in analytics to provide an 'at-a-glance' view that intelligently surfaces an individual's most critical actions for the day. By learning unique employee preferences and priorities over time, it provides instant context about a given project as well as the people and teams collaborating on it. This is in contrast to most freely available mail services that mine a user's inbox to increase advertising and monetize that data in other ways – an unwelcome proposition for business users concerned about privacy or which operate in regulated industries such as healthcare and finance.Clients using IBM Verse will also have the future option to embed a Watson feature into their collaboration environment, which enables users to query Watson on a given topic and receive a direct reply with answers ranked by degree of confidence."

13:28 EDTIBMBlackBerry hits 52-week high after unveiling partnerships
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.
