Cloudhouse explores the factors that are driving Enterprise app store adoption.

Published on April 15, 2014

According to Gartner: "By 2017, 25% of enterprises will have an enterprise app store"*.

The IT infrastructure that supports today’s Enterprise has changed dramatically over the past decade.  It’s had to in order to support an increasingly mobile workforce and to meet the demands of a new generation of employees that expect access to the technology they need wherever they are and whenever they want it.

Within an Enterprise environment, IT are pushing against a tidal wave of applications which are being downloaded from public app stores for mobile devices, these cause issues in terms of disruption to IT security and to application and procurement strategies.

Couple this with the headaches associated with browser and operating system updates, amalgamating infrastructure as a result of merger or acquisition, managing the distribution of multiple types (and versions) of applications, maintaining end user desktops….  and it’s hardly surprising that the people responsible for managing technical infrastructure are reaching for the paracetamol.

Is it any wonder that (according to Gartner) by 2017, 1 in 4 Enterprises will have adopted an Enterprise app store approach?
