Empowering users with on-demand software provisioning from an enterprise app store while empowering IT with enhanced control of software assets
The consumerization of IT is driving dramatic changes within the enterprise. People have grown accustomed to ordering music, books, games and software online, and having those items delivered immediately over the Internet to their computers, iPads and smartphones. Now they are demanding the same level of convenience at work. They want to order business applications as effortlessly as if they were downloading a favorite song from iTunes® or the latest bestseller for a Kindle®.
As for IT, the staff is bombarded with one-off requests for desktop applications, especially as employees change jobs and take on new responsibilities. And, while traditional software deployment tools excel when it comes to distributing new applications or bulk updates to thousands of computers, they aren’t particularly effective for one-off requests. Industry estimates indicate that it takes the typical IT organization 133 hours to fulfill 1,000 individual software requests using these tools. That’s a lot of time to spend on routine, repetitive tasks. What’s worse, users often wait days before the new application is installed.
Business users and IT staff members alike would be far more productive if people could browse a company online store, put applications in a shopping cart, checkout and have the applications automatically delivered to their computers within minutes.
