Apple, IBM join hands to transform enterprise mobility

0 419

Apple and IBM today announced an exclusive partnership to transform enterprise mobility through a new class of business apps—bringing IBM’s big data and analytics capabilities to Apple’s iPhone and iPad.

The alliance aims to redefine the way work will get done, address key industry mobility challenges and mobile-led business change—grounded in four core capabilities:

-A new class of more than 100 industry-specific enterprise solutions including native apps, developed exclusively from the ground up, for iPhone and iPad;
-Unique IBM cloud services optimized for iOS, including device management, security, analytics and mobile integration;
-New AppleCare service and support offering tailored to the needs of the enterprise;
-New packaged offerings from IBM for device activation, supply and management.

The new IBM MobileFirst for iOS solutions will be built in an exclusive collaboration that draws on the distinct strengths of each company – IBM’s big data and analytics capabilities, with the power of more than 100,000 IBM industry and domain consultants and software developers behind it, fused with Apple’s consumer experience, hardware and software integration and developer platform.

The combination will create apps that can transform specific aspects of how businesses and employees work using iPhone and iPad, allowing companies to achieve new levels of efficiency, effectiveness and customer satisfaction—faster and easier than ever before.

As part of the exclusive IBM MobileFirst for iOS agreement, IBM will also sell iPhones and iPads with the industry-specific solutions to business clients worldwide.

“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, CEO – Apple.

“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,” added Cook.

“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, Chairman, President and CEO – IBM.

“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,” added Rometty.

Apple and IBM’s shared vision for this partnership is to put in the hands of business professionals everywhere the unique capabilities of iPads and iPhones with a company’s knowledge, data, analytics and workflows.
