  • Uninstall not an option for Enterprise Apps
  • Yes End user in control of device and application selection Reduced IT involvement – I did not say NO IT involvement. Enterprise App Stores still need to be managed, reduction is on the end-user sideBut Security must be the primary focusApplication availability and distribution based on User characteristics Geography, Business Unit, Department, Role Device characteristics Device incompatibilities or required features Encryption support, software inventory, available space, etcEnterprise App Stores Blends the benefits of the consumer-driven app store model with the need to control and manage application distribution
  • Distribute private or custom apps65% of companies plan to rollout 5 or more (Sybase/Kelton) 21% of companies plan to rollout 20 or more In the self-service model end users have already adopted and expect They’ve done this 33 billion times alreadyIntegrate best-of public app store content There are many useful personal productivity and collaboration applications that you should leverageSimplifies discovery process 350,000 apps currently in iOS App Store, while choice is a good thing, too much choice may not be. Simplifies discovery process for end users by allowing community feedback and reviews to influence selection process and provides IT with a way to exclude unwanted applicationsSDKs exist that let you pull the meta-data from public app stores to discover new apps or the most popular appsOptimizes software licensing costs By advertising appropriate applications based on user information, device information, and community feedback about applicationSimplifies IT / Support By advertising applications based on device characteristics IT can avoid device-related incompatibilities or security concerns Self-service model means end-users will initiate installs, upgrades, uninstalls Cloud-based models solve storage limitations and distribution bottlenecks
  • Minimum OS Version, Encryption Support, Tablet/PhoneAD User Group, Department, Ownership
