SteelCloud and Conceivium partner up

Comments

This one nearly slipped under the WES radar, but not quite. SteelCloud, the BES-in-a-box that boasts a half-hour setup time, has announced that they’re preloading SteelWorks Mobile with Conceivium BES monitoring via MobileMonitor and Analyzer. The majority of BES admins I talked to at WES didn’t have a monitoring solution in place, so this is a pretty sweet deal to have it all bundled together with the initial set-up. There is talk that RIM will be including monitoring software with the next version (5.0) of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, however… I wonder how much of a bite that will take out of potential BES monitoring customers…

    RIM already packs the BlackBerry Monitoring Service with BES 4.1 SP5 (and soon SP6), although most agree that it’s absolute crap. While it may hit a home run with small to medium businesses, who wouldn’t purchase a monitoring solution otherwise, it won’t hurt most of the good monitoring solutions (this excludes Conceivium, as they are basically on par with the free solution from RIM).
