With VerioCatalyst, Verio introduces a new platform for SMBs to browse and purchase a wide selection of scalable IT, marketing, collaboration and mobility applications as well as cost-effective, bundled business services.
"The cloud marketplace model is clearly picking up steam, which equates to more partners and customers being able to access a multitude of services and applications via an intuitive storefront interface and pay for only what they use," noted Agatha Poon, Research Manager at 451 Research. "Platforms that demonstrate the ability to support full integration with third-party provisioning systems and facilitate collaboration between cloud marketplace suppliers are of great interest to service providers of all kinds. Companies such as Verio that focus on creating an enabling platform to promote openness without compromising control are in a good position to maximize their opportunities."
