Distribution, management, and maintenance

Even the way companies and their IT teams distribute software has changed. The Apple App Store and Google Play Store have fundamentally changed the model for how companies can host and distribute software to customers. This trend has finally made a crossover to the enterprise space. Large corporations like CDW and IBM have adopted the model to deliver products to internal employees and customers via an app store.

Within the enterprise, IT teams are creating custom enterprise app stores to make fleets of mobile apps available to employees. Upon logging in, each employee receives a tailored selection of apps related to their specific department and job functions. Not only do enterprise app stores allow for a centralized software hub, they also contribute to a secure mobile workforce.

IT teams can whitelist and blacklist popular consumer apps (as long as they're productive) in order to prevent malicious apps from accessing confidential data or spreading malware.

The tools that business people use to accomplish tasks, land sales and run departments are currently undergoing a tremendous period of innovation. At Icreon Tech, enterprise clients know full well the importance of providing their employees with a powerful and productive software application.

Throughout their work with international logistics companies, retail brands and non-profit organizations, they've seen the transformative ability of effective enterprise software firsthand. The advent of mobile apps, innovative approaches to design for touch-screen devices, and the use of cloud computing have fundamentally altered the landscape of enterprise software.

In this slideshow, you'll find a list of the top trends in enterprise technology as well as an explanation for how such trends contribute to a well-oiled operation.
