Supporting Commentary

  • "Employees today have an expectation that they can deploy apps for work as easily as they do in their personal lives, yet CIOs must balance that expectation with business requirements around access and control," said Mike Rosenbaum, EVP of Salesforce Platform, salesforce.com. "With Salesforce Private AppExchange, now CIOs can quickly deliver a custom corporate app storea one-stop shop for all of their enterprise apps."
  • "The ability to distribute any type of appmobile, cloud, custom, third partyacross our company would greatly benefit all employees at Brown-Forman," said Jennifer McClinton, director, Technology Development, Brown-Forman. "Right now, we have various solutions for different app types, but we see huge potential in having a one-stop app experience, such as the one delivered with Private AppExchange, to boost employee productivity."
  • "The explosive growth in demand for mobile applications is creating delivery and management challenges for all organizations and we are no different," said Ian Cohen, group CIO, Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group. "Salesforce Private AppExchange is an exciting development that has the potential to dramatically simplify the process of managing app distribution to employees. The ability to create a secure and private 'JLT space' where our employees could access the apps they need on any device would be a genuine business transformation."
  • "Corporate app stores enable IT teams to change how they support and deliver apps. With app stores, Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) teams can give end users a self-service option and an intuitive interface to access corporate-approved mobile applications. Security and Risk (S&R) pros are happier because they're gaining some ability to control mobile apps and manage access policies. Employees can also use the app store as a portal for accessing all the tools that they need to do their jobs." (Sourced from Forrester analysts Christian Kane and Michele Pelino's report "Build A Corporate App Store into Your Corporate Mobility Strategy" January 16th, 2013, Forrester Research, Inc.)

Apps are critical to driving employee productivity, but CIOs are still faced with the challenge of getting the right apps into the hands of end users across the enterprise. In the consumer world, getting apps is a no-brainer: go to an app store from a phone or laptop, tap the "install" button and, in a matter of seconds, the app is on the device and available to use. In the enterprise world, before an employee can even install an app he must first check if the app is supported, then log a ticket with IT, wait for access and, on top of that, remember multiple passwords to access his apps. Today, companies recognize they need a single place to instantly distribute any app to employees, across any device, providing them with access to the apps needed to supercharge productivity.

Redefining App Distribution for the Enterprise
Salesforce Private AppExchange enables companies to build their own corporate app store to manage and distribute any app, across any deviceall from a single, trusted platform. For the first time ever, IT can customize the app experience for every employee based on their specific job function, delivering a unified and personalized experience for every employee to access the apps they need with:

  • One-stop shop: Distribute any custom, mobile, web or desktop app to end users through a central, private app store
  • Instant access: Deploy apps to any mobile device, tablet or desktop with a single identity leveraging Salesforce Identity
  • Customization: Personalize stores by role, department or theme to drive discoverability of apps and maximize user adoption  

With Private AppExchange IT admins can make the app distribution process as easy as point and click. Even before a sales rep starts her new job, IT can ensure that every app needed to close more deals—from capturing customer notes on the go with Evernote, to logging travel in her company's custom travel management app, to signing documents electronically with DocuSign—are instantly accessible to her on any device, through a single identity. Now, a personalized app experience awaits when she signs in for the first time, and instead of logging tickets, she can start logging sales calls right away. And because IT spends less time managing app requests, they can spend more time on innovation.

Salesforce Private AppExchange - Unleashing Productivity for Customer Companies
Leading companies such as Brown-Forman, Glassdoor and Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group can realize new levels of success with Private AppExchange today by providing employees with the apps needed to create deeper connections with customers, partners and products. An IT admin can now give sales reps a choice on what app to use to generate price quotes for prospects. A product manager can sign into his development tracking app from his desktop or mobile phone using the same login. And an HR manager can now have a customized store so her team can easily find all the HR apps needed to drive employee success, all in one location.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
