Following our recent announcement of the launch of our new Standing Cloud Marketplace for cloud service providers, analysts William Fellows, Jason Verge and Daniel Beazer of 451 Research took a closer look at our offering, and we liked what they had to say. Check it out:

But those coming from the service provider world will need help: buy will likely be attractive over build when it comes to time to market, cost and expertise required."
Sounds like a great opportunity for an "App Marketplace in a Box," as they called it! Courtesy of 451 Research, you can read the full write-up here.
