Market Insights from the Market Strategy Team (Kev)


Something to Think About

IBM and Apple signed an agreement earlier this week where IBM will re-sell and support Apple gear to and for their corporate customers. While many have identified this as a big win for Apple, it's also a big win for IBM, whose products and services are used to manage the computing environments by and for their customers. The agreement is part of a segment that is heating up, with Microsoft also announcing lower-cost Windows 8 laptops to complement their Surface offerings, and keep pace with the changes Google is making to make Android and ChromeOS (and Google productivity services) a more attractive platform in the Enterprise environment.
Why we should care: Apple, Google, and Microsoft continue to invest in their cross-platform strategy, linking their core products to Enterprise - which include institutional users - with the aim of giving end-users access to what they need, when they need it, regardless of platform. Each org has different reasons for doing it, and are pursuing strategies that don't (always) take advantage of the web as a platform.
