RIM has inked deals with Microsoft, Novell and IBM to enable communication between their enterprise IM clients for the PC and Blackberry devices. Microsoft and RIM are working on a client for Microsoft's Office Live Communication Server that includes secure IM. A client should be available by the end of the year. RIM is working with IBM to develop a Lotus Instant Messaging client that would combine presence features from the IM platform with additional features from Web Conferencing. RIM is also working with Novell to create a client for the Novell GoupWise Messenger to complete support for all corporate messaging systems.
Not fooling around
