Apologies if I have placed this in the wrong section but this one seemed the most relevant. If not please direct me.
My company have been using BlackBerry as the business medium for a long time (as many others) lately they have started to look into alternatives as BB proved their security is no longer (to the promoted extend) provide the required level in addition to the poor performance of BB devices.
Our IT department have been testing iPhones (understandably) as an alternative mean. My question is if I wanted to introduce WP8 to our IT dept as another alternative, where is/are the best sources that talks about WP8 as a valid and secure mean to satisfy a business's needs, expert talks, analysts ...etc. I know WP8 is not out yet but based on WP7 and the expected improvements towards WP8.
Any directions/help on this matter would be appreciated. Thanks, Ammar from Saudi Arabia

Won't know the majority of details until October 29th.
After working on blackberry tech I am definitely interested if MS has some kind of competition for BES servers. Also RIM also has "mobile fusion" which is a BYOD system that also supports Iphone and android.

How are they looking to secure non Blackberry phones? Are they looking at third party products like Good Mobile Messaging? Or are they looking to just use ActiveSync. Simple email is just one piece of mobile devices, the biggest trend right now is having a MDM product for your device as well.

If you run a sizeable IT department, and are considering a WP8 device, then i'm guessing you have some sort of Microsoft contact for purchases, etc.
There must be some business contact that can give you this information, even if theyt can't send it till the 26th when its all officially announced.
If Microsoft are serious about business, they must some PDFs somewhere with everything described.
