Making the Cloud Rain | John Jahnke at Tackle

Perhaps the most significant transformation in software distribution over the past ten years has been the increasing dominance of cloud marketplaces.

But software developers wishing to engage in a cloud marketplace are often faced with two major problems: adapting their business model and quickly completing the integration. And when you find a good marketplace opportunity, you can’t always wait six months for the engineering team to make it work.

That’s what John Jahnke noticed when he co-founded Tackle–what he describes as a commerce platform for software companies to embrace new pathways to revenue via the cloud. In this episode of UpTech Report, John discusses the evolution of this idea, and how it works.
