Why Read This Report

Today, employees are using personally owned smartphones and tablets at work, and firms are leveraging an array of mobile applications to interact with employees, customers, partners, and suppliers. To manage, control, and deploy applications in this diverse landscape, infrastructure and operations (I&O) executives in proactive companies are deploying corporate app stores. These stores provide I&O professionals with a self-service, user-friendly strategy for distributing corporate-approved mobile applications and services to employees, similar to the applications available in the consumer-focused app stores that many of the mobile device manufacturers support. Over the next four years, I&O professionals should demand enhanced corporate app store functionality, such as content sharing, granular discovery and provisioning options, and enhanced reporting and monitoring services for smartphones, tablets, and PCs.
