Rove Mobile IT Admin Management Solution Sees Positive Uptake

Comments

We haven’t covered Rove in a while and the company has had a few announcements since the launch of the Rove Mobile IT Admin Solution version 6.0 back in September. The company let us know that one of the most used and appreciated features has been Rove’s Dashboard, a solution that aggregates alerts, alarms, notifications and tickets from IT monitors and incident management systems, presents them to IT admins directly on their mobile, and makes it possible to quickly asses the problem and implement a solution. One of the most helpful features of Rove’s product, is that it can deliver alerts even if the Exchange and BlackBerry Enterprise servers are offline.

Rove’s Mobile IT Admin solution is also tablet ready, which is crucial in today’s mixed platform enterprise.

A free, 14 day trial of Rove’s product is available for download at roveit.com/trial.

Rove also recently won eWEEK’s 2010 Product of the Year.

Review: Rove Mobile Admin 5.1 Professional

Comments

We have written about Rove’s Mobile Admin product several times on BlackBerryCool and while the feature set and demo is impressive, we haven’t seen many in-depth reviews of the software. Mobile Admin 5.1 is the latest version of the software, allowing secure mobile access for IT admins so they can investigate and resolve IT incidents from their BlackBerry.

Andrew Garcia of eWeek took Mobile Admin 5.1 Professional for a test run, and found it “provides an excellent way for data center administrators to monitor and troubleshoot server and application issues from their mobile device, granting administrators better control and faster response times when they are out of the office.” Andrew did find a few instances where the software could be improved, which is important in any well-rounded review.
