Blackberry – critical application OR gadget ?

Legal Technology Insider is running a readers poll, once again looking at the Blackberry but this time from the point of view of law firm disaster recovery and business continuity strategies. For example, the latest edition of the Solicitors Code of Conduct requires firms to have business continuity and DR plans in place for critical applications, so is the Blackberry just another gadget or a critical application? If your firm is running multiple applications via Blackberrys (and this autumn should see digital dictation becoming available on the device), what would happen if your BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) crashed and how long could elapse before this became a business critical issue? The link to the full online survey form can be found on the righthand side of the website home page here… ever, all responses are anonymous and we will publish a full report on the findings in November.
