Apple links with Unisys to target enterprise

Summary:The company has forged a partnership with computer services firm Unisys to supply iPads, iPhones and Macs to the business sector, according to a report

Apple is teaming up with technology services company Unisys to help target its products at the enterprise market.

According to Bloomberg, Apple has contracted with Unisys to sell items such as iPads, iPhones and Macs to corporate and government accounts. Bloomberg reports: "Unisys will provide maintenance and other services to companies and government agencies that purchase Apple devices, Gene Zapfel, a managing partner at Unisys, said in an interview. One of the first of its kind for Apple, the contract was signed this month, Zapfel said."

Unisys has a decent presence in government accounts as well as the enterprise. Perhaps the most significant aspect of the partnership is that it indicates Apple is really becoming focused on business. Other integrators may show interest in a similar deal.
