WANdisco Opens uberApps Store for Enterprise IT Managers
If you’re a managed services provider (MSP) that has a hand in software development, then WANdisco would like your attention. The application lifecycle management (ALM) company on July 26 is set to launch the uberApps store, which could help service providers and enterprises to more easily select applications.
According to a prepared statement from WANdisco:
“The new uberApps online marketplace enables one-stop shopping and assembly of software development lifecycle applications for the enterprise from any number of uberApps partners. With one click to purchase and one more click to install, IT departments can deploy the certified applications they need, when they need them and the way they want them. Extended product evaluations, long implementation cycles and steep learning curves are a thing of the past.”
WANdisco President and CEO Dave Richards says the uberApps store is pre-integrated into uberSVN, an application lifecycle management (ALM) platform based on Apache Subversion. The uberApps store is designed, Richards said, to work with the uberSVN platform like a giant ecosystem through which the company’s roughly 40,000 IT department users can choose applications that best fit their businesses.
The uberApps store will carry applications to support Apache Subversion, which WANdisco became the leading sponsor of roughly two years ago. Among the initial applications that uberApps store will support:
- A professional support application for the uberSVN platform itself;
- Nectar; a professional billing server application; and
- Jenkins; a solution to control all kinds of development process lifecycles.
Applications like Assembla, CornerStone, SonarSource, CloudBees and uTest also are in line to enter the uberApps store. All applications in the uberApps store will come with a free, 30-day trial. “No one wants to buy an application without trying it first,” Richards said. After the 30-day trial, businesses can purchase support contracts. Pricing starts at $3,000 per user per year.
