Flexera Software (http://www.flexerasoftware.com/) — a provider of next-generation software licensing, compliance, security and installation solutions for application producers and enterprises — announced the latest release of its universal enterprise app store, App Portal.
The new release provides support for the growing number of enterprises who want to deliver cloud apps to their employees, support Mac environments, and track time and cost savings associated with implementing a self-service enterprise app store, according to Maureen Polte, vice president of Product Management for Flexera Software. He adds that it’s the only universal enterprise app store that also delivers back-end governance, like software license management, approvals and workflow, which can be implemented stand-alone or within an organization’s IT Service Management system such as ServiceNow or BMC Remedy.
App Portal now offers self-service provisioning of Salesforce.com, Microsoft Office 365, Box, and other cloud applications from the same app store where employees currently can request desktop and mobile apps. It also now supports governance and IT service management best practices via a dashboard providing a view into the time and cost savings associated with software and OS requests, as well as usage and product adoption information for App Portal.
