玩嘉电竞下载注册 plans to expand its ecosystem around 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Server, community apps and enterprise apps with its own marketplace
Nuremberg, August 24, 2016 – 玩嘉电竞下载注册 intends to set-up its own marketplace in order to expand its ecosystem around 玩嘉电竞下载注册 server, community apps and enterprise apps. In the future, developers and partners will be able to use the marketplace to market and distribute their own commercial and open source apps. This will allow them to generate revenue from licenses, maintenance and support, and even distribute their apps free of charge. The 玩嘉电竞下载注册 marketplace is scheduled to launch in early 2017. The project will be showcased at the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Contributor Conference in Berlin from September 9-15. Go to Agenda .
玩嘉电竞下载注册 was founded in 2010 as a community project. In 2012, 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Enterprise was launched with an enhancement for desktop clients and mobile apps. In the meantime, more than ten million users and 350 customers worldwide place their trust in the file sync and sharing platform. Whereas the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Community has published more than 250 apps since then, 玩嘉电竞下载注册 itself has also developed a number of enterprise apps. In collaboration with Collabora Productivity, 玩嘉电竞下载注册 recently presented an enhancement for editing documents, spreadsheets and presentations. In its Sharing Cockpit and with VNCsafe, Digitali uses logging and audit apps from 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Enterprise for numerous customers from all over the world. VNC has developed an integration between the email collaboration solution Zimbra and 玩嘉电竞下载注册. Bernd Rodler, CEO of VNC, welcomes the introduction of the new 玩嘉电竞下载注册 marketplace: “We have often been asked if we can provide support and maintenance for our 玩嘉电竞下载注册 app VNCsafe. The up-and-coming enhancement of the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 ecosystem and the marketplace now puts us in the position to monetise our efforts and invest in enhancements for the integration.”
“The ability to enhance and adapt 玩嘉电竞下载注册 has always existed, but has been used very little, owing to the lack of opportunities for monetisation,” comments 玩嘉电竞下载注册 CEO, Tobias Gerlinger. “Developers from the community have approached us with the wish to create a marketing platform. The 玩嘉电竞下载注册 marketplace offers developers and partners the opportunity to present their innovative enhancements and apps to the market and distribute them. Our aim is to use the new marketplace to further consolidate the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 ecosystem and expand the leading position that 玩嘉电竞下载注册 has in the market.”
The pros of the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 marketplace:
- Developers get the chance to market their own apps and charge for them.
- Web agencies can develop 玩嘉电竞下载注册 themes and offer them for sale.
- Consultancies can market solutions for specific sectors and industries and develop business models based on these.
- Software houses can link 玩嘉电竞下载注册 to their own software and market the integration codes under open source or commercial licenses.
- Workflows: 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Enterprise began including workflow functionality in Version 9.1. Developers can now market customer or user-specific workflows over the marketplace.
To do justice to the flexibility of modern, cloud-based IT infrastructures, the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 marketplace will support various license models. Besides being able to promote enhancements as open source for free, developers and partners can charge for maintenance and support, or offer their software in a subscription model under a commercial license, in the same way that 玩嘉电竞下载注册 does with 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Enterprise. The 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Contributor Agreement, which provides legal certainty for 玩嘉电竞下载注册 contributors around the world, serves as the basis for choice here. Any enhancement of the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 core needs to be provided under AGPLv3, in which case the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 Commercial License, as part of the 玩嘉电竞下载注册 subscription model, allows for commercial enhancements.
