IBM, Apple to release 10 more iOS-based apps for companies in China

IBM will soon release 10 more iOS-based MobileFirst apps developed with Apple for companies in China, reports Yesky, a Chinese IT consumers portal.

The apps are designed for connection and streamlining of workflow in airlines, finance, retail, healthcare and other sectors, according to the report (as noted by, a global investment newswire).

IBM said it has released 32 mobile enterprise apps worldwide and the number will reach 100 by the end of the year. In July 2014 Apple and IBM announced an exclusive partnership designed to transform enterprise mobility through a new class of business apps — bringing IBM’s big data and analytics capabilities to the iPhone and iPad. 

The companies say IBM MobileFirst for iOS solutions will be built in an exclusive collaboration: IBM’s big data and analytics capabilities, with the power of more than 100,000 IBM industry and domain consultants and software developers behind it, fused with Apple’s consumer experience, hardware and software integration and developer platform.
