Today at DevCon2010, RIM and Webtrends announced they are working together to deliver free enterprise-class analytics for BlackBerry developers. The BlackBerry Analytics Service, powered by Webtrends, will enable developers easily and swiftly add measurement into their applications. This is great news for developers who will be able to use mobile analytics to optimize their software and craft the best user experience possible. This will lead to developers listening to their users without the user having to do anything at all.

Using Webtrends’ SDK, BlackBerry developers can integrate metrics tracking in their apps and capture relevant events. Trackable events include: app use, frequency of use, features used and screens accessed.

The BlackBerry Analytics Service powered by Webtrends will be available for free in early 2011.
