Building a Dynamic Enterprise App Store in the Cloud

Interest is growing rapidly in « enterprise app stores » where software designers and users can share and consume IT applications. Such stores may be offered by hosting providers to onboard customers and partners to their cloud, or by an enterprise to facilitate collaboration among engineering teams. However, many stores are limited to supplying pre-packaged cloud images, rather than editable templates. This session discuss the benefits and technologies for building a flexible, « dynamic » enterprise app store. These stores allow users to customize server templates before publishing directly to cloud. Additionally,hosting providers can dynamically “inject” managed services into templates, and empower channel partners to offer customized cloud solutions.
