Research In Motion CEO Thorsten Heins has outlined a strategic overhaul of the Canadian device vendor aimed at refocusing the company on its enterprise service roots. But he conceded simultaneously that many of the firm’s traditional strengths are no longer valued as highly as they once were by its customer base.
Canadian vendor Research In Motion has announced that it is to lay off 2,000 staff as part of the cost-cutting programme the firm unveiled in June. The Blackberry manufacturer said that the cuts, which will affect more than ten per cent of its workforce, were “a prudent and necessary step for the long-term success of the company.”
