Targeting the wireless enterprise market, Microsoft announced a partnership with systems integrators to jointly develop and market mobile deployments to businesses.
The initiative, dubbed Microsoft Mobility Workplace, brings the company together with HP Services, Accenture, Cap Gemni Earnst & Young, and other systems integrators to roll out devices, applications and services geared to meet the needs of businesses' mobile needs.
"Windows Powered mobile devices are powerful tools for mobile professionals that offer even greater potential when they are deployed by and truly extend enterprises," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said in a statement. "Enterprises that fully utilize devices to keep their information workers in touch with colleagues and customers have increased opportunities to enhance customer satisfaction and extend productivity gains."
The first fruit of Mobility Workplace is a Windows-based messaging service called Mobile Messaging, which will run over Microsoft-built Pocket PCs and Smartphones beginning this fall.
