What’s stopping you from distributing your application to customer-managed environments?
Let’s look at the perceived challenges that may be holding some people back. Clearly the concerns aren’t stopping everyone. 39% of software companies who don’t currently offer self-managed or on-premises versions of their products say they plan to open up these new addressable markets within the next year. Hint: Replicated can help!
Business is Booming in Customer-Managed Environments
Customer-managed environments pose distinct challenges, and opportunities, for any commercial independent software vendor (ISV), really anyone, who then needs to distribute their application for their business customers. The good news is that business is booming.
Revolutionizing Vulnerability Management with VEX
Learn how VEX (Vulnerability Exploitability eXchange) revolutionizes vulnerability management, and how Replicated is leveraging it to offer a standardized and automated approach to efficiently address vulnerabilities.
ISV Testing Strategies for Reliability and Compatibility
ISVs should be able to test a release prior to distributing to end-customers. Tests will cascade from quick and simple tests that can be done at every app code commit, to more time consuming complex tests that are run in preparation for a full customer-facing release.
Measuring up: The Existential Crisis for Commercial Software Distribution
Independent software vendors (ISVs) need to urgently rethink how they distribute their applications to their customers' self-managed environments (i.e. on-premises, VPC, or air-gapped environments). Without more useful metrics to give them insights to their actual holistic performance, they have hidden problems they can't quantify or address, which threaten their success.
How to validate the SBOMs on Replicated Releases
A software bill of materials (SBOM) is a list of components that make up a software product. Most all software products use a combination of open-source and commercial software components from third-party vendors. Because each element has potential security implications, awareness of these sometimes hidden components is critical to understanding any software's current and future cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Replicated has been delivering SBOMs alongside every KOTS, kURL, and Troubleshoot release for some time now. We have recently updated our documentation and processes to make it easier to validate SBOMs on releases.
