In the new App Center Provider Portal we have now developed an extremely convenient and contemporary tool for software providers looking to include their solutions in the Univention App Center and subsequently maintain them.
The App Center is already home to more than 90 different apps developed for use in business IT, including groupware, ERP, CRM, and back-up solutions as well as solutions for a wide range of other application scenarios. Over 50 of these solutions are third-party apps from other developers and providers. For them, the App Center is the perfect channel for introducing their software to new user groups simply and easily. After all, as use of the free Core Edition of UCS and UCS as a subscription model with support and manufacturer’s warranty continues to become more and more widespread, the apps are readily available to an ever large number of organizations and private users.
App Integration into UCS’ Identity Management
Users can download the apps with just a few clicks of the mouse and integrate them in UCS’ centralized identity management system. Alternatively, it is also possible to download the apps as virtual appliances with an integrated IDM and operating system from the web app catalog. The integration of the apps in the centralized management system of UCS, life cycle and update mechanisms, and state-of-the-art container technologies make the App Center the simplest conceivable way for users to get to know, try out, and implement software.
Autonomous Upload of Solutions to App Center
With the recently launched Univention App Center Provider Portal we are now making it even easier for providers to include their solutions in the App Center. The new online service allows app providers to integrate their solutions in our App Center, test them and subsequently maintain them completely autonomously and independently of our team.
