Apple and Cisco on Monday announced a blockbuster partnership to more tightly integrate iPhones and iPads with Cisco enterprise collaboration products.
The blockbuster deal signifies another strategic move by Apple to make its devices more appealing to enterprise customers.
"It is in the same vein as making sure the devices that Apple is making are in sync with the application demand of a changing workplace," said Jack Narcotta, an analyst at research firm Technology Business Research.
Partners cheered the new partnership, which will optimize Cisco collaboration tools like Cisco Spark, Cisco Telepresence and Cisco WebEx on iOS devices.
However, some partners still have several unanswered questions surrounding the new partnership. Following are five concerns at the top of Apple and Cisco partners' minds.
