App Store for Business

posted Nov 12, 2010, 6:34 AM by Unknown user   [ updated Nov 12, 2010, 6:43 AM ]
With the enormous success of App Store for iPhone and iPad, Apple will release an App Store for your Mac where you can buy software and install it directly. This drives innovation and productivity that everyone can benefit from.

If the App Store can do it, the thinking goes, then why can't my corporate IT department roll out that Web-based application just as easily and quickly? Slowly this is changing. Cloud computing can be a enabler of innovation for companies. Here are some examples:
  • App Stores for companies, select software, check reviews and start using it directly. No involvement is needed from your IT department
    • getapp.com
    • Google Apps Market Place
  • Hosting provider
    • Amazon EC2: Create an account and set up your first server in 1 hour.
      • Bitnami.com: Select pre packaged open source images with your favorite software like Sugar CRM and install on Amazon EC2
  • App Store for business processes (BPM)
