Verious Inc., the leader in connecting app publishers and developers with code for mobile app development, today announced a strategic partnership with Deutsche Telekom, enabling Deutsche Telekom to launch the Developer Garden Component Marketplace for developers across Europe. The partnership includes mutual distribution and syndication of software components to better enable enterprise developers, major publishers and independent app developers to find, discover and integrate components and core telecom service APIs into their apps, dramatically increasing efficiency and app monetization. Verious is providing both the infrastructure and initial component catalogue to Deutsche Telekom to seamlessly enable developers to buy and sell code for mobile app development. Deutsche Telekom adds its own telecom service APIs and components from enterprise software providers to enhance the Developer Garden offering.
With its Developer Garden Component Marketplace, Deutsche Telekom is the first telco to enter the fast emerging app component market. The marketplace, powered by Verious, will enable developers to accelerate their app development projects; discover enabling services to build into their apps; and tap into entirely new revenue streams. Verious’ experience in operating a worldwide marketplace for mobile app components and source code makes them the ideal partner and infrastructure provider for Deutsche Telekom.
“Deutsche Telekom is one of the largest and most innovative telecommunications providers in the world, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them,” said Anil Pereira, founder and CEO of Verious. “We have seen tremendous interest from seasoned developers in Europe looking for ways to make more money from their code. Partnering with Deutsche Telekom through developergarden.com brings enormous business and developer reach and an additional stable of APIs and software components that are tailor-made for enterprise app development.”
Verious’ extensive catalogue of mobile app components across major smartphone and tablet platforms—including iOS, Windows Phone, Android and HTML5—has now been syndicated to Deutsche Telekom’s developer web site, http://www.developergarden.com. Additionally, Telekom’s APIs and partner listings will be added to Developer Garden and syndicated across Verious.com and the Verious Mobile App Developer Network, a network of popular sites and newsletters reaching over 1 million mobile app developers on a monthly basis. Based in Silicon Valley with a worldwide audience, Verious is the leader in connecting developers with components and services for mobile app development.

Mobile apps have created a $6B+ industry in just 5 years. Research firm Gartner Group predicts that by 2015, mobile app projects will outnumber PC app projects four to one. Given that most of the 17 million developers worldwide are migrating from Web-related initiatives to mobile apps, many of them are looking for answers on how best to both streamline and monetize their efforts. Enterprise developers are similarly searching for ways to leverage mobile apps for their businesses.
The value proposition of the new Developer Garden Component Marketplace powered by Verious is simple. App code from experienced developers and independent software vendors (ISVs) is made available to a wide range of app developers worldwide:
• You’ve developed a great user registration process for your app that other developers can leverage? Now, you can sell it as a component!
• Your app needs an elegant visualized weather forecast, but you’re short on time and resources to code it? Now, you can find one and integrate it with just a few lines of code.
• You’d like to be inspired on the best ways to integrate payments into your app? Now, you can learn from top developers’ source code.
The Developer Garden Component Marketplace is a powerful extension of Deutsche Telekom’s existing Developer Garden offering which enables developers to leverage core Telekom assets such as network, billing, reach and customer relationships to create new kinds of powerful apps. Pre-built mobile app components will further help developers in their app development and monetization efforts.
