The Unified Listing and MarketPlace Working Group

The Unified Listing and MarketPlace working group has 3 sub teams that focus on the three areas of responsibility for this group.

  1. Unified (Federated) Listing - work on creating the Federated Listing of all Open and Closed source, Commercial and Free, Add on and built in access features.
  2. GPII Marketplace - work on creating a Marketplace for "purchasing" commercial and free Access solutions
  3. Shopping Aid - "Pre-sale" matching aid to help users find thing in Unified Listing (and marketplace) based on NP Profiles (See also REAL-TIME Matchmaking)

What is what?

There are a number of different components to this work that are sometimes confused.  This section is written to help keep them apart.

  1. EASTIN+    
  2. The GPII Unified Listing  (the Global Solutions Registry)
    • This is a federated repository of open source and commercial AT related to ICT access as well as access features in mainstream products
    • The GPII Unified Listing (as a whole) is not a deliverable of Cloud4all.  
    • Linking (federating) the GPII Unified Listing  with the Cloud4all Federated Repository (the ICT access portion of the   database) is a Cloud4all deliverable. 
  3. The GPII Marketplace
    • The GPII Marketplace is a place to buy some ICT access products (those that the developers would like to distribute this way)
    • The GPII Marketplace has a "shopping aid" that will draw from Cloud4all work - but it is not a Cloud4all deliverable
    • Linking the Cloud4all work to the Marketplace is a deliverable.    (in the proposal - the GPII Unified Listing and Marketplace" was referred to simply as the GPII Marketplace.
  4. The Cloud4all/GPII  "Solutions Registry"
    • The Cloud4all/GPII "Solutions Registry"  is another name for the GPII Unifed Listing
