Enterprise App Store: How to Avoid Risks & Unbudgeted Costs

Enterprises that fail to take into account software license compliance risk when implementing an enterprise app store, expose themselves to unexpected, unbudgeted software vendor audit penalties. According to a new Flexera Software Application Usage Management Report prepared jointly with IDC, which surveyed more than 750 respondents from software ISVs, intelligent device manufacturers and end-user enterprises on all aspects of managing the software license lifecycle. The report details the penetration of Consumerization of IT within organizations today, the benefits and hurdles encountered when implementing consumerized IT programs, and the unforeseen risks.

According to Amy Konary, Research Vice President – Software Licensing & Provisioning, IDC:

"Consumerization of IT is taking root because employees have become sophisticated, productive users of technology in their personal lives. Companies want to tap that productivity by making technology in the workplace easier to access and use. But many Consumerization of IT programs, like "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) and enterprise app stores can create unanticipated software license compliance risk and unbudgeted costs, which organizations must be aware of and plan for in order to avoid."
