Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 27, 2009
CorasWorks, a leading provider of software that makes it easier to develop applications on Microsoft SharePoint®, has announced the formation of CorasWorks Community, a free, public community aimed at increasing business value for those deploying CorasWorks on SharePoint in their enterprise. Designed to encourage interaction and sharing among customers, partners, builders, developers and end-users, the CorasWorks Community features application and building block downloads, white papers, design blueprints, how-to guides, forums, blogs and more.
"With the current economic climate, it is imperative that companies maximize business value from their current technology investments. With SharePoint, they have an ideal, open-end platform that can be extensively leveraged," said William Rogers, Founder and Chief Workplace Architect. "The CorasWorks Community is an exchange designed to drive value. Because of CorasWorks' unique modular architecture, all users can see, download, customize, share and exchange applications and building blocks with other CorasWorks users without being required to install additional software. This open Community can now directly support the needs of business users and thereby reduce the learning curve and costs of creating business value on SharePoint and the strain on IT. "
While the CorasWorks Community caters to the needs of CorasWorks customers, it also contains downloads, white papers, blueprints, best practice guides, forums and blogs that can help any SharePoint developer or user. The power of the CorasWorks Community is a centralized place in the cloud, open to all, where users can engage with other SharePoint users and CorasWorks, with the goal of helping everyone maximize their investments in SharePoint.
"The Community is a practical way to gain leverage," said Rogers. "With CorasWorks, users already have our application-enabling platform installed. We are investing in applications and building blocks that we are providing for free to drive immediate value. We will be working with partners and customers to bring their contributions and offerings to the community which can be used by all."
At launch, the CorasWorks community contains easy-to-download applications, such as Document Review & Publishing, Help Desk, Vacation Approval, and Building Blocks including color-coded calendars, charts, and remote displays.
