The Problem: App stores have become a common trend across a wide range of industries. Whether they’re in retail, cloud computing or IT software, companies are striving to set up marketplaces where they can sell their applications in a branded environment.
However, the amount of time and resources needed to integrate a virtual marketplace into a web site often overshadows the potential return. As 25% of large companies expect to offer an enterprise app store by 2017, businesses need to streamline the process of rolling out an app marketplace.
