SixSq’s Nuvla.io is a proven B2B digital platform for industrialisation and automation of containerized edge applications and device management.

Delivering simplified go-to-market for App Vendors

“Using the Nuvla.io Marketplace and App Vendor Programme we can springboard customers into adopting and deploying meaningful edge computing with minimum risk and a positive ROI,” said Marc-Elian Bégin, SixSq CEO and Co-founder. “Both vendors and customers benefit from unprecedented agility, flexibility and scalability, with minimum complexity and without compromise on security.”

The App Vendor Programme gives app vendors and customers tools to interact in a seamless way, including clear pricing and contractual terms. It also provides hassle-free monetisation of business applications for telcos, service providers and system integrators.

App vendors can now more quickly reach their customers and at the same time benefit from a simple mechanism to deliver regular software updates. Customers can purchase their apps in a secure manner, at scale, using Nuvla.io.
