Apple is continuing its leap into the enterprise space thanks to a just announced partnership with professional services firm Deloitte.
Moving Apple devices into the boardroom
Deloitte provides audit, tax, consulting, enterprise risk, and financial advisory advice for more than 244,000 professionals worldwide.
Here’s more about the agreement:
As part of the joint effort, Deloitte is creating a first-of-its-kind Apple practice with over 5,000 strategic advisors who are solely focused on helping businesses change the way they work across their entire enterprise, from customer-facing functions such as retail, field services and recruiting, to R&D, inventory management and back-office systems.
Apple and Deloitte will also collaborate on the development of a new service offering from Deloitte Consulting called EnterpriseNext, designed to help clients fully take advantage of the iOS ecosystem of hardware, software and services in the workplace. The new offering will help customers discover the highest impact possibilities within their industries and quickly develop custom solutions through rapid prototyping.
Apple has previously inked partnerships with two other big enterprise companies – IBM and SAP.
