IBM and Apple have released 100+ IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps

In an announcement made on Wednesday, IBM said that it has delivered 100+ IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps through its partnership with Apple.

IBM and Apple had signed an enterprise apps partnership in 2014, with the objective of rolling out new MobileFirst apps for corporate users. The companies had said that each of the MobileFirst apps for enterprise would combine IBM’s big-data and analytics capabilities with Apple's user experience.

In announcing their partnership, IBM and Apple had promised that they will launch 100 MobileFirst apps to the business and professional sectors by the end of 2015. And, on Wednesday, IBM revealed that the two companies have successfully achieved their goal, with more than 100 MobileFirst enterprise apps for iOS having hit the markets thus far.

According to the details shared by IBM, the currently-available MobileFirst for iOS apps span 14 industries and 65 professions. The industries for which the enterprise apps have been released by IBM and Apple include consumer products, automotive, retail, healthcare, financial services, chemicals and petroleum, and travel and transportation.

Asserting that the MobileFirst for iOS apps portfolio will be extended to new markets in the future, and that the future apps will be even more powerful, IBM said that many future MobileFirst apps will boast integration with the capability of its Watson cognitive computing system, to enable the apps to “continuously learn about the needs of employees and customers over time — effectively building on data with more use.”
