Microsoft's opens Windows Store for Business signups ahead of launch

Microsoft appears to be inching closer to the launch of its Windows Store for Business for Windows 10. The company has now published a new web portal for the store, allowing IT administrators to start signing up to use the business-friendly app administration service.

Once live, the Windows Store for Business will allow administrators to easily manage and deploy apps to their teams. According to the new webpage for the store, administrators can assign, reclaim, and reassign licenses, control updates, push apps to individuals and groups, and manage app discovery in a private store.

According to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, who first reported on the new web portal, the Windows Store for Business is set to arrive with the Windows 10 Threshold 2 release, which is due out this month. Plans could change, of course, but there's a chance IT administrators could have some new tools on their hands for deploying apps as early as next week.
