Apple And Cisco Ink Nebulous Enterprise Partnership.

Huge enterprise player Cisco and Apple announced a “Fast Lane” for iOS enterprise users, which promises a more streamlined and optimized experience for those enterprise customers using Cisco networks and products. Apple® and Cisco® (NASDAQ: CSCO) today announced a partnership to create a fast lane for iOS business users by optimizing Cisco networks for iOS devices and apps, integrating iPhone® with Cisco enterprise environments and providing unique collaboration on iPhone and iPad®. “iOS is the world’s best mobile platform, and nearly every Fortune 500 and Global 500 company today has put iOS at the center of their mobile strategy,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “iPhone and iPad have become essential tools for the modern workforce and are changing the way work gets done. Together with Cisco, we believe we can give businesses the tools to maximize the potential of iOS and help employees become even more productive using the devices they already love.” “Ninety-five percent of companies in the Fortune 500 count on Cisco Collaboration and Cisco networks to help their teams be more productive,” said Cisco Executive Chairman John Chambers. “Through this engineering and go-to-market partnership, we’re offering our joint customers the ability to seamlessly extend that awesome Cisco environment to their favorite iOS devices. Now Apple wants to get its products and operating system more widely used in business, and a new partnership between these two companies will drive faster toward that goal. There’s a lot of words here and not a lot of meat, but what it seems like Apple and Cisco is working on is an environment to enable easier onboarding for enterprise users.

The partnership will also see the two companies collaborate to make iPhone a better business tool by using Cisco voice and video environment so that the experience between using an iPhone and desk phone is completely seamless. There’s no reason for a corporate customer to use phones that aren’t good for their employees simply because it’s easy to get your software onto it. With Apple’s support, Cisco will deliver experiences specially optimized for iOS across mobile, cloud, and premises-based collaboration tools such as Cisco Spark™, Cisco Telepresence® and Cisco WebEx® in order to deliver seamless team collaboration and reinvent the meeting experience. Apple’s three software platforms — iOS, OS X and watchOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud.

Cisco is the worldwide leader in helping companies seize the opportunities of tomorrow by delivering the amazing results that come from connecting the previously unconnected. With approximately 70,000 partners, Cisco is very well positioned to provide our customers with next generation networking, security, data center, and collaboration products and solutions that help them achieve their desired business outcomes.

What makes this new partnership unique is that our engineering teams are innovating together to build joint solutions that our sales teams and partners will take jointly to our customers. While neither company is likely to see any immediate boost to revenues. this is far from bad news for those who want to see a wider integration of technology to be more Mac and iOS friendly.
