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).

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
