The Windows Store for Business and AirWatch

Microsoft's Windows Store for Business enables you to acquire, manage, and distribute applications in bulk. If you use AirWatch to manage your Windows 10+ devices, you can integrate the two systems. After integration, acquire applications from the Windows Store for Business and distribute the applications and manage their updated versions with AirWatch.

This topic explains how to deploy acquired apps using AirWatch. For information on Windows Store for Business processes, refer to https://technet.microsoft.com/itpro/windows/manage/windows-store-for-business.
