A deal was sealed today by two of the tech game’s biggest players, IBM and Apple. While Apple develops the iOS and sells iPads and iPhones like a freshly baked loaves on Sunday, IBM specializes in data analytics and consulting solutions. The joining of the two giants is expected to create a driving force in mobile solutions for businesses.
Ginni Rometty, Chairman, President, and CEO of IBM said, “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. 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,” she added.
The exclusive partnership is looking to transform the way things get done today by targeting key industries with the right products. For IBM and Apple, that means IBM's business apps will be brought to iPhones and iPads. Hence, IBM will secure its place among coveted business clients that already use iOS devices, and Apple will continue to expand its consumer market by offering IBM's solutions.
The arrangement implies that both companies will develop more than 100 different enterprise solutions as apps for the iPhone and iPad, IBM cloud for the iOS, AppleCare service and support designed for enterprise customers, and ways for businesses to purchase and manage Apple devices.
Apple and IBM's shared vision is to make sure every business professional has the uniqueness of iOS at their fingertips, adjusted with proper business mobile solutions. We can expect industry-tailored apps for hospitality, transportation, or banking, for instance, and services that offer IBM's innovative data and analytics capacities.
The first offspring of this marriage are expected some time in the fall, probably around the launch of the iPhone 6 or the latest iOS 8 version.
