Fraunhofer FIT announces CloudTeams collaborative software development platform – join it for free

10.01.2017

The CloudTeams Collaboration Platform enables end users and software developers to collaborate in early stages of software creation and helps software teams to deliver better software products for end users. Now, http://CloudTeams.eu is online and open for beta testers for free.

Software developers register their software project on the platform, draft campaigns with questionnaires, select their target group, and ask end users for their feedback on the project idea, mock-ups, and prototypes.

End users fill in their profile, follow interesting software projects, get notified of and participate in running campaigns, and collect rewards for their feedback. The interaction between the end user and developer community happens in a privacy respectful way as data of end user is anonymized.

More benefits for software teams are advanced team collaboration and project management tools, and connectors to popular third-party services for software development and testing.

CloudTeams targets startups and SMEs, as well as tech-savvy customers. Start-ups and SMEs, having not the time and money to find a matching target group and gain deep market insights, collaboratively develop software that meets the customers’ needs. Tech-savvy customers, being interested in current developments from software teams and willing to do a little work for influencing future developments, make their voice heard by developers.

Fraunhofer FIT is the coordinator of CloudTeams, leads the development of the CloudTeams Collaboration Platform, and develops the team platform component for the developer community. The team platform is an extension of the groupware system BSCW which is in the market since more than 20 years. BSCW has been extended and newly designed to the CloudTeams requirements.

CloudTeams – Collaborative Software Development Framework based on Trusted, Secure Cloud-based Pool of Users is co-funded by The European Union’s Framework Program for Research and Innovation – Horizon 2020. Partners: Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT (DE), NTUA – National Technical University of Athen (GR), FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik (DE), SILO – SingularLogic (GR), YASAD – Turkish Software Industrialists Association (TR), Booreiland (NL).

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
