Jeffrey, agreed, the time for enterprise app stores is now, and the need is only going to become more urgent as more and more apps are deployed internally. In addition to the benefits you mention, organizations should also be considering platforms that support the full mobile app lifecycle from development to deployment. The enterprise app store is really just the “last mile” in terms of enterprise mobility.
