Insert the joke here: Times change — The times they are a-changin’ — Think different.
But really, this IBM deal seems like a smart partnership for Apple. They could either double their workforce to fully go after enterprise, or they can partner with a massive company already doing that. 
Yes, Apple likes to control every aspect of what they do. But enterprise is not a core competency and won’t be any time soon. Yet customers are demanding it. Hence, this deal.
And yes, this is potentially very bad news for Microsoft — which, oddly, is now the one trying to do everything itself.

Watson, the decision whisperer
At the rate you hear the words ‘big data’ and ‘analytics’ thrown around these days, you might think everyone was using them. And sadly you’d be wrong. In reality, most business folks leave insights out of their decisions because the tools to extract them are too complicated. Here’s a new name to drop. IBM Watson Analytics. Using natural language and a keyboard, anyone can go mining data for instant insights. Just ask your question and Watson can help guide you through answers. No fancy statistics degree required. Get the scoop →
