Apple Highlights Relations With IBM

Apple Highlights Relations With IBM

Apple has highlighted its relationship with IBM by changing its business webpage.

Apple has taken a measure to inform the world about its competencies and promote itself across the globe. The consumer electronics manufacturer recently introduced its Mac redesigned edition in Business webpage as its relations with IBM continued to grow. As its name has implied, the webpage demonstrates the enterprise acumen of the company and the newly introduced design focuses on the strengths of the smartphone maker in business.

The overall website has highlighted facts that one will expect in Apple’s marketing pitch, such as the symbiotic relations between hardware and Apple software, and the means by which iPads, iPhone and Macs work well together.

The smartphone manufacturer has called attention to its accessibility instruments, including Swift programming language, which it had recently open sourced and OSX safety tools, amongst other features that can appeal to business clients. It also focused on its relations with the company, especially IBM’s experience while shifting over to Macs in 2015.

Webpage and Fletcher Previn, who is working as a ‘Workplace as a Service’ official in the IBM’s CIO office, have revealed that shifting to Macs have contributed to average savings worth $270 per equipment when compared to a personal computer. Fletcher stated that the actual dollar savings ranged from $240 and at least $273.

“We currently have 50,000 MacBooks deployed and plan to deploy a total of 150,000 to 200,000 devices across the organization. Since the rollout began in June, 2015 [we have] been adding 1900 Macs per week within IBM,” he stated.

The saved funds are a result of lower supporting costs from lesser calls to the internal help desk of the company. Only 5% of people who use Macs have asked for assistance since the program was started compared to two fifth for users of personal computers, Fletcher spoke to Tech Crunch.

On an average, two fifth of the newly hired employees want to use Apple machines when they come aboard, but he has reported that they have witnessed generational differences as far as the utilization of the technology giant’s gadgets is concerned.

“Someone who has worked at IBM for 25 years is a lot less likely to ask for a Mac than a new college hire, for example,” he stated. In fact, the New York based organization has established an enterprise known as ‘Mac at Work’ letting other businesses shift to Apple’s devices. “IBM is now able to offer clients the same program [we implemented internally] to easily and securely integrate Macs with their enterprise systems and applications,” Fletcher elaborated.
