IBM MobileFirst iOS Apps are here
It’s been a long wait since Apple and IBM announced the release of new iOS enterprise apps, in the wake of one of the most important, and promising deals in the business, and technology world.
The new MobileFirst, built-for-business iOS apps and cloud services, target enterprise customers exclusively, and are delivered within a secure environment, and built specifically for government and business use, with built-in analytics, and integrating core business processes.
The enterprise industry can now leverage expectations with access to analytics, workflow, cloud storage, and fleet-scale device management, as well as security integration, delivered through a private app catalog that integrates data and transaction security services available in all MobileFirst iOS solutions, from BueMix, IBM’s development platform on the IBM Cloud Marketplace.
AppleCare is also a big part of these services, providing 24/7 assistance to IT divisions with Apple’s award-winning customer support group, as well as IBM’s on-site support.

The easy access to up-to-date information allows pilots to make crucial decisions on fuel, which is a major issue affecting airlines costs. A big success indicator is the adoption of iPads by Gulf Air this year to replace traditional flight packs.
Flight crews have now access to a wealth of information to better serve passengers in-flight, including the ability to provide baggage information and re-booking, as well as special offers.
