A year-on-year growth of 30.4 per cent expected globally.
The 'bring your own device' initiative is encouraging larger enterprises to use more flexible mobile solutions throughout their businesses, resulting in the need to adopt enterprise app stores.
The stores enable businesses to expand their mobile app portfolio whilst controlling distribution, decreasing that pressure.
Western European and North American enterprise app store adoption is predicted to increase around 21.5 per cent and 20.7 per cent, according to ABI Research, as Asia-Pacific grows year-on-year at 59 per cent by 2018.
The main concern with the introduction of the enterprise solutions is finding a scalable deployment solution that doesn't negatively affect or put pressure on IT departments.
That said, positives include apps that contain key documents such as PowerPoint presentations, videos, work order forms and other important files, custom app deployment to employees, plus app lifecycle management.
