In December 2014, Apple revealed a partnership with IBM. It was the first time the two companies teamed up. They worked on a series of apps targeted at businesses and governments, and the name of the whole project was MobileFirst. Enterprise customers, business owners and CEOs in domains like retail, financial services, banking, insurance, and telecommunications for airlines and governments can now use these apps. The result of the collaboration was named “an unprecedented partnership” between two major tech titans.

Furthermore, IBM announced that the MobileFirst iOS apps already have important customers such as Air Canada, Citi, Banorte and Sprint, among others. IBM declared that what they’re delivering is aimed at new businesses. Smart technology unlocks new values and awakens the true potential of a company. The collaboration blends Apple’s well-known brilliance in product design and user experience with IBM’s expertise in enterprise computing.
