Apple and IBM are going to start to partner selling iPhone, iPad and Apps to business, according to Reuters, July 15.

Industry analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment.

“What goes around comes around. If we look back a few decades, we see how Apple and IBM were fierce competitors in the computer space. Today Apple and IBM are partnering to grow in the business space. Incredible turn of events,” says Wireless analyst Jeff Kagan.

Apple is looking for growth in the business community for their devices like iPhone, iPad and iCloud services. IBM is the company who can help Apple do just that.

“If you stick around long enough the moon is full once again, the tides are high once again, and Apple and IBM can now do business. Who would've guessed?” Technology analyst Kagan.

“The mobile and telecom space is one of the hottest growing segments. Apple really has not done a great job on the business side of the market. That’s why this deal with IBM seems to make so much sense,” says Tech analyst Kagan.

“We’ll have to see if this works, but the thinking behind it sure makes sense so far,” says Kagan.
