Vicious rivals are making peace in the tech world. IBM and Apple have been working together to manufacture iPad and iPhone apps for IBM customers, including Citigroup and Sprint. It's an example of a business strategy known as 'coopetition,' defined as 'collaboration between business competitors, in the hope of mutually beneficial results.' Apple wants to make inroads into the corporate market for PCs, and IBM wants to use Macs and iPads, fitted with IBM software for use by IBM corporate clients. A big selling point to corporations is that it's much easier to manage and integrate Macs than PCs in a corporate environment.
