Microsoft readying Windows 10 Store for Business
Funnel specific Window apps to users inside an organization
Microsoft is readying its promised Windows Store for Business for Windows 10, and has made available some initial information on the coming Store as of November 4. The Windows Store for Business is the portal for Windows 10 apps for business users. Microsoft officials first outlined the company's plans for a Windows 10 Store for Business in November 2014.
The Windows 10 Store for Business - according to the site where users will be able to sign up or sign in with an organizational account - is for admins who want to make applications available to their users outside of the normal Windows Store channel in Windows 10.
The portal will allow admins to find apps for their teams. They can acquire apps individually or in volume. They can assign, reclaim or reassign licenses to various apps and control app updates. They also can distribute offline-licensed apps via the Windows Store for Business.
The coming Windows Store for Business portal can serve up Windows Store apps for volume acquisition and distribution, as well as custom line-of-business apps that are meant for distribution only inside a particular organization.
