“The next version of Windows Intune, Microsoft’s cloud-based desktop management tool, will allow for the sideloading of apps — that is, the installation of apps directly from Intune, without going through each device’s app store.”Colin Steele

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is sideloading, the installation of an application on a mobile device without using the device’s official application-distribution method.  Sideloading works differently on different mobile platforms. On an Android OS device, you simply check a box in the operating system settings. On an Apple iOS device, however, you have to jailbreak the device.
