Accenture will create a dedicated iOS division, which will include visual and UX designers, programmers, data scientists and software designers from Apple.
"Both Apple and Accenture are leaders in building incredible user experiences and together we can continue to truly modernize how businesses work through wonderful solutions that take advantage of the incredible capabilities of Apple's technologies". The two companies aim to launch tools and services.
