Gartner Research: Assess Your App Management Needs
Excerpts from the Gartner research note by analysts, Chris Silva and Jason Wong, published 30 June 2014.
When determining the best enterprise app store approach, the first step is to consider the business- to-employee (B2E) apps in use, those that will be deployed and the extent of management that the IT organization needs to apply. A major factor in the decision to adopt one type of app management over another is the level of development the mobile team is equipped to embrace. Some approaches require customizing or building completely customized mobile apps. Increasing levels of app development correlate with the need for more control and customized policies across apps and users. If app management is required, the three paths to apply it require a range of IT intervention, from no development at all to completely customizing mobile apps.
