So, we’ve talked in the past about an Application Library, where you can find applications that other companies have built. This would rely on people like you making a copy of your application and giving it to the library for the common good.
As we’ve worked on defining this, including ease-of-use in donating and safeguards for access rights, etc., one hurdle that we’ve run into is a legal one. Is your company going to be OK with giving copies of your applications to the library, if they also benefit from having access to applications from other companies? Should we think about this more as a co-op, than a library? (See this Baseline article on a software co-op.)
And, we are moving down the path of making a library, or showcase, of Intuit applications open for customers. Please tell us what applications are most pressing for you now. We can likely find an example inside Intuit.
Along those same lines… what do you think of the Webinars? We’ve had live application examples for Community Impact, SOX Compliance, and Project Management so far this year, along with enhancing our introductory QuickBase, Sales, and Project Management. Are you finding these useful? What other topics should we cover?
