2015. VMware acquired Boxer email app to fold it into AirWatch enterprise mobile solution



VMware (that will be soon part of Dell) announced plans to purchase email management app Boxer. The company will fold Boxer into AirWatch, the enterprise mobility management company it purchased 2014 for $1.5 billion. The idea behind that purchase was to provide security when employees are working on mobile devices outside of the office. Boxer takes that mission a step further by giving companies an email management solution that integrates well with other cloud applications like Box, Dropbox, Evernote, Gmail, Salesforce and Outlook, among others. It is taking AirWatch from the realm of simply managing mobility to actually providing one of its own applications, and a popular one at that.


2014. IBM and Apple partner for joint Enterprise push



30 years ago IBM and Apple dreamt to become the kings of the new personal computer market, but were overplayed by Microsoft, which monopolized the PC market for many years. Time passed, but the offense remained. And recently, IBM and Apple have decided to join forces on the Enterprise mobile market. The proof is on the photo: Ginny Rometta (IBM) and Tim Cook (Apple) are walking and discussing the details of the deal, according to which the companies will jointly optimize IBM MobileFirst, MaaS360 and other IBM business products for iPhones and iPads, and will sell them (along with Apple mobile devices) to IBM customer base. Perhaps, Microsoft is the target victim of this deal. In any case positions of Windows Phone and Surface/Windows8 in the Enterprise will be significantly weakened. But maybe, on the contrary, Microsoft overplay the competitors again. With the new boss Satya Nadella, Microsoft is less focused on their platforms and devices, and more focused - on cross-platform services. In particular MS Office 365 already works fine on iOS. At least, much better than on Android. So if the share of iOS-devices on the enterprise market grow - Microsoft will anyway earn more.
