Cu doar cateva minute in urma v-am spus ca Apple a incheiat un parteneriat istoric cu IBM pentru a aduce iDevice-urile intr-un numar mult mai mare de companii din SUA impreuna cu aplicatii si servicii speciale pentru ele. La scurt timp dupa anuntul privind incheierea acestui parteneriat, Tim Cook a trimis un memoriu intern angajatilor companiei proprii, discutand despre ceea ce presupune aceasta colaborare.
Tim Cook se prezinta ca fiind extrem de entuziasmat de recenta initiativa de a dezvolta software special pentru companiile americane, el vorbind si despre o multitudine de alte beneficii pe care le aduce acest parteneriat. Toate detaliile le aveti in textul de mai jos.
Today, we announced a groundbreaking new partnership with IBM that will enable enterprises to put the power of big data analytics at their employees‘ fingertips on their iOS device. This exclusive global partnership brings together Apple‘s legendary ease-of-use and integrated hardware and software with IBM’s unmatched industry depth, enterprise software and expertise in big data analytics.
It also builds on the incredible momentum in Apple’s enterprise business. iPhone and iPad can be found in 98% of the Fortune 500. People love to use iOS devices and Apple delivers the things companies need most—security and scalable deployment along with a powerful platform for apps. With this announcement, we’re now 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 only Apple and IBM can deliver.
IBM is known for helping customers leverage big data and analytics to make their businesses run better. With over 100,000 consultants and sales professionals, they also have massive scale and global reach. IBM‘s sales and consulting teams will also be selling iPad, iPhone and AppleCare for Enterprise as part of the partnership.
This partnership brings together the best of both companies. It’s great news for Apple, IBM and for enterprise customers worldwide and I’m really excited to see it take off.
