On-demand enterprise applications provider NetSuite today officially launched its SuiteCloud Ecosystem, designed to encourage customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) to maximise NetSuite investments, and make the firm the preeminent platform-as-a-service provider.
SuiteCloud is a bundle of tools and services which helps businesses to customise and extend their NetSuite implementations with ease, according to the vendor, and allows ISVs to build applications that meet specific business needs on top of a common business suite platform.
The latest additions are SuiteCloud Developer Network, a developer programme for ISVs, and SuiteApp.com, an online marketplace where ISVs and customers can find the applications they need.
"ISVs have a choice to make: they can look at environments like Force.com and build siloed apps, or they can look at the seamlessly integrated, highly robust environment of the NetSuite Business Operating System to deliver solutions which target specific company requirements," said Craig Sullivan, vice president of international products at NetSuite.
"We see the partner community and ISVs as critical to our strategy to be the dominant mid-market enterprise suite. Working with key ISVs expands our reach to our customers."
One such ISV is Postcode Anywhere, a UK business technology firm which has built address management tools as add-ons to NetSuite's integrated business management software suite for accounting, enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and e-commerce.
The tools were built using the NetSuite Business Operating System, and will be available on the SuiteApp.com platform.
