After partnering with Apple and Twitter for the enterprise market, IBM is doing the same in China with local Internet giant Tencent in a deal targeting growing businesses in the country.
The two companies are joining forces to deliver public cloud and software-as-a-service technologies to small, medium businesses working in the smart cities and healthcare industries, IBM and Tencent said Friday.
The goal is to help China’s emerging businesses tap into more cloud computing and mobile tools to expand their reach, the companies said in a statement. For both IBM and Tencent, it also represents a huge opportunity to collaborate on selling their enterprise services to a major market.
