Apple today announced that it is partnering with Accenture, a global consulting firm, to “help businesses transform” how they engage with their customers “through innovative business solutions for iOS.” Apple will essentially be working with dedicated iOS practice studios called Accenture Digital Studios to develop and launch new tools for enterprise clients. 

These studios will be located in select locations around the world. These tools will help change the way how businesses interact with their customers via their iPhone or iPad.

“Starting 10 years ago with iPhone, and then with iPad, Apple has been transforming how work gets done, yet we believe that businesses have only just begun to scratch the surface of what they can do with our products,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Both Apple and Accenture are leaders in building incredible user experiences and together we can continue to truly modernize how businesses work through amazing solutions that take advantage of the incredible capabilities of Apple’s technologies.”
The press release from Apple highlights how this partnership will benefit Accenture’s clients:
  • New ecosystem services to help clients address the full range of iOS integration requirements to connect to back-end systems, leveraging Accenture’s systems integration expertise and the unique iOS advantages built by Apple with key partners like SAP and Cisco.
  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) services featuring new tools, templates and predesigned code to help clients take greater advantage of the data from IoT platforms in their iOS apps, putting more power into the hands of workers.
  • Migration services to help clients to quickly and easily transfer their existing legacy applications and data to modern iOS apps.

Apple is already in a partnership with IBM to develop enterprise apps for iOS. By entering into another partnership with Accenture, the company is further strengthening its hold in the enterprise market.
