I expect it to thrive, simply because, in a world of distributed and cloud-based systems, Automic delivers a strong foundation upon which users can build new functionality and integrate with diverse applications and services, be they enterprise or mobile based. The Automic PlugIn Marketplace offers a multitude of opportunities for customers and partners to add, consume and market complementary components that will extend their automation capabilities,” comments Dr Robin Bloor, Chief Analyst, Bloor Group.

‘My feedback is that the Automic Plugin Marketplace is phenomenal. This is what the Automation Community has really been looking for. It will save me tons of time and energy not having to reinvent what others may have already been able to achieve. This is what everyone has been looking for,” stated Jesse Getzie, Assurant
