If the friendships with IBM and SAP were not enough indications that Apple is really eyeing the business market, perhaps this announcement today is: Apple has just released a partnership with the British Deloitte LLP, one of the largest companies in the professional services industry in the world.
The focus of the partnership is iOS, which Apple is now treating as the future of computing also within companies and corporate environments. In practice, Deloitte will implement a series of practices with more than 5,000 strategic consultants that will help businesses to facilitate the performance of their operations and the company's daily life with iOS and Ma's services.
In addition, the company is also launching the program EnterpriseNext, which remotely help your customers to get the most out of their iPhones and iPads in carrying out tasks such as teamwork, recruitment, research and development, inventory management, sales and more.
Regarding the cooperation, Deloitte Global CEO Punit Renjen stated:
We know that iOS is the best mobile platform for business because we feel the benefits ourselves with more than 100,000 iOS devices used by Deloitte employees, running 75 apps of their own. Our dedicated Apple practices will give global business a expertise and the resources they need to empower their workers to make the most of the powerful ecosystem that iOS, iPhone and iPad offer, and help them achieve their ambitions while generating efficiency and productivity.
Apple CEO Tim Cook also shared a few words with the press:
As a leader in the digital transformation strategy, Deloitte is an ideal partner that brings a team of dedicated Apple strategic advisors who will help customers truly revolutionize the way they work using the iOS, iPhone and iPad, which are transforming the way people around the world carry out their work. Through this partnership, we will be able to help even more businesses to experience the incredible possibilities that only the Apple ecosystem can provide.
