Microsoft links mobile users to services with AgreeYa deal

29 NOV 2011

Microsoft is working with US mobile engineering company AgreeYa Mobility to help mobile users connect to Microsoft services from different computing platforms, including Android, BlackBerry, iOS and webOS.

Reuters reports that the protocol licensing agreement between the companies will see AgreeYa produce a software suite that interoperates with Microsoft applications to allow enterprise users to access them from any device.

The move reflects the increasing fragmentation of devices used in enterprises, a trend that has also seen BlackBerry maker RIM develop its BlackBerry Mobile Fusion multi-platform management suite, to allow admins to manage Android and iOS devices as well as BlackBerry smartphones.

Financial details of the deal weren’t disclosed.
