New App SDK According to Open Industry 4.0 Alliance Guidelines

March 6, 2024

We simplify how you as an app provider can fully automate the deployment and updating of your apps. Our new App Software Development Kit (SDK) is designed to drastically simplify the process for app providers like you. This SDK aligns with the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance guidelines, ensuring your app can be seamlessly integrated and updated across various app stores with minimal effort.

This works in three steps:

  1. Initiate Your Request: Begin by expressing your interest in launching your app on the FLECS Marketplace. Simply reach out with a statement like, “We, Company XY, are ready to debut our app in the FLECS Marketplace.” Contact us!
  2. Efficient Processing: Upon your request, we grant you access to a specially structured GitHub repository. This repository comes equipped with pre-configured GitHub Actions, enabling complete Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) automation. If you’re already using a different repository for your software management, there’s no need to switch – our SDK can be easily integrated into your existing setup. We also provide detailed guidance on this process. Additionally, you will receive a vendor account for the FLECS Marketplace, allowing you to add all necessary marketing and commercial details for your app, including its name, description, logo, etc.
  3. Seamless Publication: The final step is as straightforward as tagging your app. Once tagged, it automatically gets released in the FLECS Marketplace – like magic!

The beauty of this process is its efficiency and simplicity: releasing a new version of your app can now be done in under five minutes in most cases. We believe this will significantly ease the way you deploy and update your apps, making the entire process more efficient and user-friendly.

Stay ahead in the rapidly evolving app marketplace with our new SDK – designed for speed and compliance with industry-leading standards.

At FLECS, we lead the “Application Management” working group in the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance. This role enables us to have a significant influence on the results of the group’s work. The process is therefore largely shaped by us and tailored precisely to the needs of developers of industrial applications.
