Apple Incorporated and IBM have agreed on an international bond to push iOS in the Enterprise. Apple partners with IBM to develop iOS enterprise apps and cloud services, tailor AppleCare for enterprise while IBM will also sell iPhones and iPads to its business clients.
Their respective marketing departments will join heads in order to create a whole new class of commercial applications. Thus IBM’s skills and tools will meld with the iPhone and iPad that are so characteristic of Apple Incorporated.
The goal before the two behemoths is to reinvent the ergonomics of the ordinary workplace via innovation and design. The changes are radical indeed and will require a little getting used to by the employees.
There are four major fields where the transformations will occur:
- homegrown applications with over a hundred remedies in store;
- cloud-based services that will aid various structures and systems;
- Apple amenities and feedback departments…and last but not least,
- IBM products for activation, provision and handling.
With so much in the pipeline, IBM and Apple are looking forward to cooperating on a full-time basis. IBM is to donate its iOS and mobile facilities in order to benefit Apple’s pre-existent skills.
An upgrade in efficacy and client service so that the clientele feel like guests instead of just ordinary customers is to be looked into as well.
Furthermore, IBM will be displaying iPhones and iPads as part of its role reversal strategy. Both organizations have assented to an exchange of technological capital.
Close to 90% of the high and mighty CEOs listed in the Fortune 500 and Global 500 reviews use Apple products in their day to day business activities. And with IBM’s data analysis as an aid in this endeavor, things are all set to take off into the stratosphere.
“iPhone and iPad are the best mobile devices in the world and have transformed the way people work with over 98 percent of the Fortune 500 and over 92 percent of the Global 500 using iOS devices in their business today,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO.
“For the first time ever we’re putting IBM’s renowned big data analytics at iOS users’ fingertips, which opens up a large market opportunity for Apple. This is a radical step for enterprise and something that only Apple and IBM can deliver.”
Besides this, mobility is restructuring everything on the face of the planet. The excitement of the new and different can be literally felt in the air as a sort of static.
And it is all due to the rapprochement between these two hulks of the technology world. Their seeing eye to eye can only be a blessing and a Godsend for the rest of the Global Village.
“Mobility—combined with the phenomena of data and cloud—is transforming business and our industry in historic ways, allowing people to re-imagine work, industries and professions,” said Ginni Rometty, IBM Chairman, President and CEO.
“This alliance with Apple will build on our momentum in bringing these innovations to our clients globally, and leverages IBM’s leadership in analytics, cloud, software and services. We are delighted to be teaming with Apple, whose innovations have transformed our lives in ways we take for granted, but can’t imagine living without. Our alliance will bring the same kind of transformation to the way people work, industries operate and companies perform.”
