Deloitte and Apple have partnered to help Deloitte customers accelerate business growth on iOS platforms.

Part of the effort includes the foundation of Deloitte’s new Apple practice to help businesses design and implement iPhone and iPad solutions. More than 5,000 strategic advisors will work within the practice.

Apple and Deloitte also plan to develop a new service offering from Deloitte Consulting called EnterpriseNext, which will aim to help clients make the most of the iOS ecosystem of hardware, software and services in the workplace.

EnterpriseNext will provide expertise across more than 20 industries, Deloitte promises. Some features include EnterpriseNext Value Maps for iOS, designed to help users discover the highest impact possibilities for iPhone and iPad within their industries, align their mobile opportunities and prioritize digital resources; EnterpriseNext Workshops for iOS, which are meant to help build custom-built iOS solutions from prototypes; and iOS architects, designers and engineers housed within Deloitte Digital Studios around the world.

“We know that iOS is the best mobile platform for business because we’ve experienced the benefit ourselves with over 100,000 iOS devices in use by Deloitte’s workforce, running 75 custom apps,” stated Punit Renjen, CEO of Deloitte Global. “Our dedicated Apple practice will give global businesses the expertise and resources they need to empower their mobile workforce to take advantage of the powerful ecosystem iOS, iPhone and iPad offer, and help them achieve their ambitions, while driving efficiency and productivity.”

“As the leader in digital transformation strategy, Deloitte is an ideal partner that brings a team of Apple-dedicated strategic advisors to help clients truly revolutionize how they work using iOS, iPhone and iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO in a statement. “iPhone and iPad are transforming how people everywhere get work done. And through this partnership, we’re able to help even more businesses tap into the incredible capabilities that only the Apple ecosystem can deliver.”
