Tim Cook Sends Memo to Employees on IBM Partnership, Says 'I'm Really Excited to See It Take Off'

Posted July 15, 2014 at 11:36pm by iClarified
Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent a memo to employees about the company's "groundbreaking new partnership with IBM". As one would expect, Cook is "really excited to see it take off".


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.

Apple gets everything, like we all say to samshit, they don't get on the list and sometimes when they do for the products, they're not number one. lol if they learn to be new without following Apple other than a screen size, they would have been better, it's all could've and would've but didn't. Glad to know about IBM, I'd like to see them pick a wannabe plastic toy maker. lolololol

When did they go out of business exactly? They did many changes to phones, music players, iTunes redefining music for cd's, computers, iBeacons, photo tools, etc.

Before jobs came back in 1996-97 they were close to running out of money.

Ok I see. So... Yeah, he had to be there long enough for Apple to pull through, because nowadays him or not Apple will still be what it is since they are still alive and as the chart shown earlier, their products will always be number one! :)

Ya they never went out of business but they came close. Until buying Next and bringing back Jobs their profits were dropping and money was running out quick because they weren't coming out with any descent products or software too attract customers. It all changed when Jobs came back and restructured the company. The rest is history!! Jobs might be gone, but I think before he left he gave them a long extensive plan of what he envisioned the company to do after he was gone. Many people have said before he died that he had a product pipeline set in place for the next ten years. I think apple as a company and their products are only gonna get better.
