General Description of AppWave
AppWave allows companies instant access to applications.
AppWave Enterprise Store
The AppWave Enterprise Store lets you centrally provision, manage and update products and licenses inside your own firewall. AppWave is lightweight software that centrally manages Applications and licenses. You control what product versions are available to end users from their AppWave Browser. With network licensing, you can use AppWave to centrally control the list of authorized users. AppWave also supports you in managing many third-party Applications that can be mastered as Apps in AppWave Studio. Using AppWave Studio, you can also broadcast in-house developed Applications. AppWave lets you simplify licensing, reduce costs, and control access by consolidating, centralizing, and standardizing on how you deliver Applications. Database professionals and Application developers have on-demand access to Embarcadero Applications when they need them. You can run multiple versions side-by-side, and adapt tool sets by project and platform to respond faster to changing business demands.
The AppWave Enterprise Store is for Windows software acquired by and made available within organizations for fast and easy “mobile-like” access to software. All the end users in your organization can search, browse, and run Windows software instantly, from anywhere. Administrators can track software usage real time with comprehensive reports on demand. These reports give you critical information needed to track what software to maintain and support.
