“Apple and IBM have introduced their autumn collection of elegant, contextual and transactional enterprise-class apps designed to bring intelligent intelligence to business in the Big Data age,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld. “Some may miss the complexity masked by the seeming simplicity of the app interfaces the partners revealed this week. They’d be stupid to do so, as these are good examples of taking information from multiple sources, contextualizing it and wrapping it inside an accessible and transactional layer.”
“You see, we’re moving rapidly away from silo-based management practice — it’s not appropriate, for example, for the marketing teams to fail to speak with the publicity teams, or for the tech support team to deny insights from customer service,” Evans writes. “This is why it makes so much sense for enterprise to seek systems integration help from outside of their own talent pool while they modernize the nature of their set-up.
“Some reports claim that more than 75% of firms intend building 10 or more apps during the next 12 months, but most lack the skills to do so,” Evans writes. “That’s where Apple and IBM come in.”
