Apple and Accenture announced that they are teaming up to help Accenture’s enterprise clients integrate iOS into their businesses. According to Apple’s press release.
Accenture will create a dedicated iOS practice within Accenture Digital Studios in select locations around the world. Experts from Apple will be co-located with this team. Working together, the two companies will launch a new set of tools and services that help enterprise clients transform how they engage with customers using iPhone and iPad. The experts will include visual and experience designers, programmers, data architects and scientists, and hardware and software designers.
Among other things, the two companies plan to collaborate on integrating existing back-end systems with iOS, building Internet-of-Things tools, and migrating legacy enterprise applications and data to iOS.
Today’s announcement marks another milestone in Apple’s iOS enterprise push, which began in earnest in 2014 when Apple partnered with IBM.
