Accelerate your time-to-value with development essentials
Need inspiration for your next innovation? Take a look at Digital Marketplace—the online hub for tools and solutions built for the Digital Business Platform. The marketplace is all about accelerating your launch of differentiating software applications by providing one place with development essentials, solution accelerators, business process models and other time-saving assets from Software AG and our partners.
Who needs Marketplace? You do
Marketplaces are not a new concept. And while there are similarities with app stores, marketplaces are most certainly not app stores either. To further complicate matters, different marketplaces are run by very different organizations and for very different reasons. But marketplaces are needed to bring innovation from all corners of an ecosystem into one place for easy consumption by anyone. By giving an equal platform for all software innovators, large and small, marketplaces are the great equalizer of the modern software industry.
So why has Software AG launched Digital Marketplace and why now? Well, the Digital Business Platform has added a new development paradigm to software—the rapid and continuous innovation of differentiating applications. The innovations by our partner ecosystem have been so swift we felt they deserved a forum—one that works equally well for all partners, large or small, global or local.
In a nutshell, Software AG’s Digital Marketplace accelerates your time-to-value in leveraging our Digital Business Platform. It brings together Software AG and partner development tools and solutions in one easy-to-use online storefront. It’s open for everyone and free to use.
