Storyline:Science & Tech

Apple and IBM

IBM Apple and have publicized a business corporation that will see the two firms co-develop business-centric apps for iPhones and iPads.

To the context IBM will start selling business clients Apple’s mobile devices pre-fixed with the new software.

The two companies were one-time competitors, with Apple’s 1984 advert¬† illustrating itself as an upstart challenging what was a dominant IBM.

One expert said it was too soon to know how significant the deal would be.

“It’s hard to be sure without more details,” said Ken Dulaney, an analyst at the tech consultancy Gartner.

“Enterprises need special features to protect their applications and the associated data. Our understanding is that IBM now has special access rights to certain security features on the devices that others will not have access to.

“This permits IBM to offer applications and services through Apple devices that behave more like the software businesses have long built on Windows platforms.
