Over the past six years, we've built a very solid and stable business selling our application development tools to organizations so they can design, build, and manage their own solutions on SharePoint
Reston, VA (PRWEB) May 12, 2009
CorasWorks Corporation, a leading provider of software that makes it easier to develop applications on Microsoft SharePoint, today announced it will begin offering "plug-and-play" applications to the CorasWorks and SharePoint community. Branded "Ready For Work" applications from CorasWorks and partners will become available in beta this month, with more to be released over the next several months.
"Over the past six years, we've built a very solid and stable business selling our application development tools to organizations so they can design, build, and manage their own solutions on SharePoint," said Gary Voight, CEO of CorasWorks. "However, we believe there is a growing market for these off-the-shelf business applications and processes for SharePoint, and we think CorasWorks and our partners are perfectly positioned to start bringing these types of applications to that market."
With the recent release of the CorasWorks Workplace Suite v10.1 and Data Integration Toolset v1.4, the CorasWorks Modular Application Development System is now positioned to support this type of application development and distribution for SharePoint users. Using the system, rich business apps and processes can be built without custom code development and made available to the CorasWorks Community, where users can quickly and easily snap the applications into their SharePoint environments. These Ready For Work apps do not require installation of custom code and are easily customizable using the Point & Click Builder Wizards of the CorasWorks System.
A key piece of CorasWorks application strategy is to recruit and establish relationships with companies or individuals who will build and make their apps available to the CorasWorks Community. Through the CorasWorks Application Publisher Program, publisher's Ready For Work apps can be purchased in an online app store within the CorasWorks Community and used by tens of thousands of business groups worldwide running the CorasWorks System on SharePoint.
"The CorasWorks System now makes it possible to have this type of application exchange on the SharePoint platform," said William Rogers, Chief Workplace Architect at CorasWorks. "You see this on other platforms, like the Apple AppStore and Salesforce.com AppExchange, and it is definitely where the world is going. CorasWorks v10 delivered the key technical breakthroughs we needed to be able to bring this type of integrated offering to users of SharePoint."
