A typical enterprise administrator uses two or more consoles for products that allows them to do their daily job. In many cases these products are related and tasks performed are for same target audience in terms of users, devices, policies, applications and many others management items.

What if there was a solution that allows you to seamlessly bring these multiple consoles into a single pane of glass?

BlackBerry’s UEM Integration SDK is exactly the tool you need to seamlessly bring multiple administration consoles into one: the UEM Administration Console.

Here are a are some screen shots demonstrating this with UEM, and BlackBerry AtHoc, two separate products originally. Below, as of UEM 12.8, you can now include AtHoc right in the UEM admin console.
