High effort for manual publishing of apps
Many companies have their own corporate apps, which they make available to employees, customers, or partners. These may be used to share important information or to carry out standard business processes. However, the more apps a company has, the more effort is required to manage the workload behind the scenes. Not only do these apps need to be optimized and constantly updated for all devices and operating systems, there will also be new functions to offer, new types of hardware to support, or errors to rectify. For example, IT departments will need to prepare new screenshots and binary files, plus maintain and, if necessary, correct metadata. Then again, they need to go through a long-winded signing process, keeping technical departments and external suppliers in the loop the whole time.
If this process is performed manually, it ties up a lot of resources and is hugely time-consuming, which means that getting apps from the development phase right through to the app store is no mean feat. There is also considerable potential for errors as a result of all the manual stages and copy & paste processes, and it’s also hard to guarantee compliance with security guidelines. Nor is there any way of providing an overview of all apps and their respective status.
Doing this manually takes up a lot of resources and takes a long time, so the road from development to availability in the App Store is a long one. The manual steps and copy-and-paste operations also increase the risk of errors and can not ensure compliance with security policies. Also missing is an overview of all apps and their status.
