Details on Apple’s enterprise push with IBM emerge as company courts app developers & clients

logos-mbp

A new report from Reuters citing sources at Apple familiar with the company’s plans for future corporate offerings has unveiled new details on the Cupertino corporation’s efforts to recruit business clients and software developers. According to these sources, Apple is currently courting companies such as Citigroup, ServiceMax, and PlanGrid (among others) to augment its current IBM enterprise agreement.

The exact nature of the proposed partnerships between these companies hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the general idea is similar to the IBM arrangement. ServiceMax, a company that creates solutions for managing field technicians, and PlanGrid, which allows construction workers to share blueprints with each other, will both agree to roll out Apple hardware with custom software to their clients.

Apple is poised to take a big swing at companies like Dell, HP, and Oracle if it manages to break into the enterprise hardware and software markets in a big way. To that end, the company is said to have created sales teams that focus solely on acquiring enterprise customers.

ServiceMax and Apple have reportedly co-hosted several marketing dinners in the past year, with attendance coming in at around 30 chief information officers per dinner. ServiceMax’s clients include Philips, St. Jude Medical, DuPont, ADT, Proctor & Gamble, and many more.

Apple recently launched an enterprise initiative in cooperation with IBM that will allow businesses to purchase iOS devices and get specialized AppleCare support along with custom software developed by IBM. Clients will be aided by an account manager at Apple who will handle IT support, providing perks like next-day hardware replacement and 24/7 support with one-hour responses for critical issues and on-site hardware service.

Google may lose major patent case with big ramifications for Android

Oracle Google Appeal
In an Oracle vs. Google appeal case, the judges appear to be siding with Oracle, according to reports from Bloomberg and Reuters, although there isn't a ruling in the case yet. In the spring of 2012, Google won the trial against Oracle, which sued the company for allegedly copying 37 Java APIs from Oracle-acquired Java in the development of Android. U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled in that case the APIs that were copied by Google were not copyrightable, giving Google the win in a case in which Oracle was seeking $1 billion in damages, down from an initial $6.1 billion estimate. Oracle also had patent claims against Google in that case, which it lost, and which it’s not appealing.

Larry Ellison, long-time friend of Steve Jobs, says ‘we already know’ Apple without Jobs

Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, longtime close friend of Steve Jobs, and former Apple Director, shared with CBS’s Charlie Rose what he believes post-Jobs Apple will look like. As quoted by AllThingsD:

“Well, we already know,” Ellison told Rose. “We saw — we conducted the experiment. I mean, it’s been done. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. We saw Apple without Steve Jobs. We saw Apple with Steve Jobs. Now, we’re gonna see Apple without Steve Jobs.”

Ellison’s quote seems to be referring to Apple’s history with Steve Jobs (the time in which the company launched the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, for example) in comparison to Apple’s darker years with leadership from the likes of John Sculley and Gil Amelio.

Now, with Steve Jobs’s hand-picked successor Tim Cook and the rest of the leadership team with Jony Ive, Craig Federighi, and Eddy Cue at the helm, Ellison seems to think that the pattern of dark days under leaders other than Jobs will repeat itself. (YouTube embed via The Verge)

6 Tech Company Slogans That Mattered

6 Tech Company Slogans That Mattered

Intel's always been a bit of a brand machine—remember the "Intel Inside" stickers?—and on Tuesday it upheld that tradition. In a pivot from the sort of stodgy "Sponsors of Tomorrow" slogan, the company is going with the hacker-friendly "Look Inside." How much can a new slogan really matter, though? A lot, if history is any guide.

Fool me twice: Apple releases Java update for the latest Zero Day

Screen Shot 2013-03-04 at 5.38.08 PM

Following a number of reports of new zero-day vulnerabilities in the Java browser plug-in, Oracle has today released an emergency update to Java 7 as Apple updates Java SE 6 to version 1.6.0_43.

Today Oracle released Security Alert CVE-2013-1493 to address two vulnerabilities affecting Java running in web browsers (CVE-2013-1493 and CVE-2013-0809).  One of these vulnerabilities (CVE-2013-1493) has recently been reported as being actively exploited by attackers to maliciously install the McRat executable onto unsuspecting users’ machines.  Both vulnerabilities affect the 2D component of Java SE.  These vulnerabilities are not applicable to Java running on servers, standalone Java desktop applications or embedded Java applications.  They also do not affect Oracle server-based software.  These vulnerabilities have each received a CVSS Base Score of 10.0.

Late last week researchers from security firm FireEye warned users of yet another new Java zero-day vulnerability and recommended users disable Java until Oracle addresses the issue. Today Oracle said it knew about the flaw since February 1st but didn’t get around to patching it in the last release:

Though reports of active exploitation of vulnerability CVE-2013-1493 were recently received, this bug was originally reported to Oracle on February 1st 2013, unfortunately too late to be included in the February 19th release of the Critical Patch Update for Java SE

The company intended to include a fix for CVE-2013-1493 in the April 16, 2013 Critical Patch Update for Java SE (note that Oracle recently announced its intent to have an additional Java SE security release on this date in addition to those previously scheduled in June and October of 2013).  However, in light of the reports of active exploitation of CVE-2013-1493, and in order to help maintain the security posture of all Java SE users, Oracle decided to release a fix for this vulnerability and another closely related bug as soon as possible through this Security Alert.
