Enterprise App Store: Vendor Federations

Enterprise application stores are moving to the next level. Cloud28+ what IT World describes as a “federation of independent software vendors, resellers and service providers” led by HPE — is up to 225 members.

The federation plans to go online this summer. One of the federation’s first planned steps is the App Onboarding Center, which will containerize workloads from enterprise app store vendors and test them for compatibility. The service will be free initially.

The line between enterprise app stores and consumer app stores is not cut and dried. For instance, consumer app stores carry enterprise apps that are used in business, and have areas cordoned off for business.

For the most part, however, enterprise app stores have their own identity. Consumer app stores are notoriously porous. Organizations have far tighter control in their own app marketplaces. This is but one of the many advantages offered by enterprise app stores. This slideshow touches on the big issues affecting the enterprise application store sector.
