Why Enterprise Software Must Evolve In the Age of Apps

  • Why Enterprise Software Must Evolve In the Age of Apps-

    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.
