    RIM hires software architect David Yach as Vice President

    12 years ago today, the Vice President and Chief Architect of Sybase, Inc., joined RIM at the position of Vice President, Software. His new position will head the development of software for RIM's wireless communications.

    Sybase, the company from which Yach came from, was one of the top ten largest global independent software companies. During his tenure there from 1989, David Yach led the development of the Adaptive Component Architecture, which gathered more than 100 Sybase products and placed them all into one cohesive strategy. He also ran the Mobile and Embedded Computing Division, which was responsible for the industry's first ultra small database for handheld devices including RIM's Pager 950, Palm computing, Windows CE and Symbian EPOC platforms.

    "As an increasing number of specialized applications are developed for RIM's wireless products, David's expertise will be of great value," said Research In Motion President and Co-CEO, Mike Lazaridis. "David brings the experience, contacts and insights that RIM will need to excel in the enterprise wireless connectivity market."

    Davids current position at RIM is CTO for Software at RIM. His team has their hands in creating software for BlackBerry devices ranging from BES to applications, Operating Systems and radio firmware.

    Whether you have have a fondness for the BB OS you are using or complete disdain for it, this is the man who leads the team which makes or breaks your expectations.

    It's interesting to see the turning points in a company in the early stages.
