Modernizing PC Applications: Lessons Learned from Steve Jobs
The app store model, launched by Steve Jobs in 2008, changed the way consumers access apps. When today’s office worker, accustomed to built in search and one-click access from their mobile devices, logs onto his or her work PC it may feel like going back to the 1990s as delays in finding tools, lengthy installation processes, lack of visibility into what’s available and little knowledge about how others use tools hamper productivity.
AppWave represents a new way of enabling the agility an organization needs to get the most out of its application portfolio. It focuses on rapid access to software. Through an enterprise marketplace approach that minimizes administrative effort, users get a consumer-like, self-service experience where they can find software via built in search tools, then run it with one click.
