Among the many announcements being made at Oracle OpenWorld 2013, one that really caught my attention was about the new Oracle Cloud Marketplace. The Cloud Marketplace provides a place for Oracle Cloud customers to easily browse, evaluate and buy trusted business applications developed by registered Oracle partners. These applications extend the Oracle Cloud and cover a broad range of functions from basic reporting and user management, to more robust solutions such as sale incentives and compensation management, governance and risk management, customer lead creation, and sales reporting. The Cloud Marketplace is designed to help customers easily find applications that meet their needs with the ability to search by keyword or category and sort by name, rating, or date. Each application listing provides detailed information including a description of the application, demos, ratings and reviews, videos and screenshots.
Oracle partners who publish their applications on the Cloud Marketplace also benefit by gaining visibility for their solutions and easy access to a larger market of potential customers. Benefits for becoming a Publisher on the Cloud Marketplace include:
- SAVE TIME & MONEY - Develop cloud applications quickly and easily. No commissions.
- EXTEND & INTEGRATE - Leverage native integration with the Oracle Cloud SaaS applications.
- INNOVATE - Leverage Oracle Cloud PaaS to build new applications in the cloud.
- GROW YOUR BUSINESS - Sell applications into the Oracle Cloud customer base.
