IBM Launches ‘Garages’ to Help Spur iOS Enterprise App Development

Building upon the Apple-IBM enterprise mobility partnership established three years ago, Big Blue (that’s a nickname for IBM) today announced a new initiative to help accelerate the development of MobileFirst enterprise apps for iPhone and iPad.

Upcoming app development studios, called Garages, will soon go online in Shanghai, China and Bucharest, Romania, in addition to IBM’s existing MobileFirst for iOS studio in Bangalore, India.
“In order to offer clients greater access to its mobile capabilities, IBM is introducing new Garages dedicated to the quick design, integration and deployment of MobileFirst for iOS apps, adding to its growing network of global studios and labs where clients work with more than 10,000 experts in mobile and cognitive.”
The first Garages will launch in Shanghai and Bucharest. There is already a Garage present in Bangalore. As for the IBM and Apple partnership itself, IBM detailed, at least in part, that the move has been a solid one for both companies, with the initiative generating “several billion dollars in signings from over 3,800 client engagements.”

Since its introduction three years ago, the partnership between Apple and IBM has resulted in several billion dollars in signings with more than 3,800 client engagements supported by market-ready and custom iOS apps designed for professions across all industries, including store associates, flight attendants and field technicians.
