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).

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
