Global Open Source Solution Provider, CIGNEX Datamatics today announced their new product framework Mercado – a light weight marketplace application.

Based on Liferay, popular Open Source portal platform, Mercado allows organizations to build marketplace within enterprise portals, extranets, and intranets. The product addresses the existing gap within the market of having a user centric collaborative space for sharing software products, reports, videos, photos, code snippets etc.

“In our experience as an Open Source enterprise solutions leader, we have come across instances where our customers have a comprehensive treasure of reusable items, but often these solutions are   scattered across various teams/departments with no concrete platform to broadcast their availability.  Mercado is an application, where these segregated teams/users can collaborate by contributing their products in a ‘Conventional App Store’ like environment.” said Munwar Shariff, Chief Technology Officer, CIGNEX Datamatics.

Mercado is the first in a series of products CIGNEX Datamatics plans to release this year. The company expects these lightweight products to add value to the enterprise allowing them to realize user adoption with little or no customizations.
