    We have built an App Store that supports the abstract deployment of both services and visualisations by users, and allows them to be “mashed-up”. The end user contracts with each party in the supply chain, so no prexisting commercial commercial relationship is required between the parties in the supply chain.

    We have done this as means to munge data, services, analytics and SaaS offerings from disparate providers together to support niche provision within the financial services industry, but the potential applications are much broader.

    So far we have only opened up non-commercial contributions to the public beta, but the paid stuff is all done at the technical level, just waiting on legals.

    Would welcome feedback, and participation from content providers who want to build content and sell it on our platform. Just sign up at http://www.hedgehogs.net and contact me, and we can arrange a guided tour.

    Interesting Article, Dion. Fiberlink recently had a Webinar on this same topic, covering a lot of ground on what can be done to manage the Enterprise App Store once it becomes established in a company’s IT infrastructure.

    The presentation specifically addresses how the enterprise can manage, distribute, and track the apps that are being used by their employees.

    Here’s a link to a recording of the Webinar if you are interested in hearing more: http://bit.ly/koUQ5G
