Hosted Apps Now Available at

Lora Bentley

No longer is simply a repository of open source projects and code. Monday, the development community launched what it's calling "Hosted Apps."


The first set of applications will host includes forum software, a wiki platform, and online survey tools. Sourceforge will maintain the apps and manage the infrastructure needed to provide them, according to More programs will be added to the hosted lineup later.


The service will allow open source software developers "instant, virtualized access to popular...applications." Quick, easily scalable access to applications like phpBB, MediaWiki and LimeSurvey will enable developers to focus on their projects rather than on maintaining the applications they use to work on those projects.


Ross Turk, Sourceforge's community director is quoted as follows:

Using a combination of popular open source tools and virtualization, we're able to get new features to our users quicker than we ever have.

I am a consultant that help companies start VAR/Channel initiatives. Presently I am working with two application providers and would like to help them receive some recognition for their inovative solutions.One is a SaaS solution provider for on-demand office solutions for SOHO that reduces over head and investment but provides an Enterprise solutions for office fuctionality that would otherwise be out of the SOHO clients budget.The other is a new Document Management solution that has been implemented with one of the largerst East coast construction suppliers in the US. The Construction company has integrated it with their ERP and existing archieve solutions for easy contact iterations, order confirmation, AP, AR and marketing campaigns.How can I help them with exposure to the public and reviews by publications like yours. Any suggestion?Regards,Bob Buettner954 701 9189 Reply
