Apple and IBM are entering into an exclusive partnership! Being a proud iAficionado (I am writing this on Yosemite beta 3 if you really want to know) this is wonderful news! When you think about it the two companies are really complementary. Apple has ‘insanely great’ mobile devices and user experience, IBM brings top notch industry and enterprise-customer knowledge as well as big-data/analytics and cloud capabilities. The idea is to jointly develop hundreds of industry specific apps. IBM will also sell iPads & iPhones to the enterprise customers. I am really looking forward to go to market together with the Apple team, we can bring such a strong story!
PS. maybe we get a MacBook Air at work now… please let me dream 🙂
