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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
