The apps address work across 14 industries and 65 individual professions, from wealth advisors to flight attendants, first responders, nurses and retail buyers. IBM says that the companies are expanding the portfolio to new markets including consumer products, automotive, aging and chemicals and petroleum.
Each app combines IBM’s big data and analytics capabilities with Apple’s legendary consumer experience to help companies achieve new levels of efficiency, effectiveness and customer satisfaction -- faster and easier than ever before.
IBM has also announced that it will integrate many future MobileFirst apps with the cognitive capability of Watson, enabling the apps to continuously learn about the needs of employees and customers over time -- effectively building on data with more use.
“Our apps -- which currently represent an exclusive level of business value -- are evolving to deliver cognitive capability that refines insights to the most relevant information, enhancing the quality of decision making,” said Fred Balboni, general manager Apple partnership, IBM. “Marrying the simplicity of Apple’s product design with IBM's unmatched security, analytic and cognitive expertise is the leading edge of mobile-led business transformation.”
In addition, IBM says it is currently developing enterprise apps for the iPad Pro that will take advantage of its expanded power, performance, larger screen size and iOS 9’s multitasking features, allowing professionals to work in two apps side-by-side at the same time. Apps with Apple Pencil support will provide added precision and functionality to tasks, including designing and laying out a room, logging transactions or annotating maintenance logs.
