Microsoft Mobilizes Corporate IM, Partners With RIM

Microsoft is extending the reach of its enterprise-grade IM solutions to mobile devices. The corporate IM solutions differ from the consumer ones in the branding of the IM client, number of ads, ability to store IM discussions, and secure transmission. Now, MSFT has sensed that corporate users of IM, the "real-time" enterprises, need to be "real-time" whether they are parked at their workstations or not. The deal with RIM is a natural fit for both companies: it will help accelerate MSFT's IM deployment into the corporate markets that RIM dominates, while connecting RIM to a powerful partner in the enterprise software space.
