Overview

Ecosystem Management-as-a-Service (EMaaS) products don’t just facilitate seamless information flow and exchange. They’re designed to simplify and streamline every stage of your developers’, customers’ and partners’ lifecycles.

Constellant-dpEngine (digital platform Engine)

This cloud-based software platform provides the Ecosystem-in-a-Box functionality required for EMaaS, along with data collection, reporting and analytical capabilities.

dpEngine provides a wide range of capabilities through 4 main software modules: Publisher, Developer, Partner and Marketplace. Our products and services are structured to grow with you. Whether you need services, software, 1 module or all 4, we will work with you to craft a solution designed to meet your needs today and support your growth in the future.

Publisher

The fastest way to publish technical and non-technical documentation.

An intuitive tool that empowers internal customers to automatically publish technical documentation using continuous integration capabilities in an easy-to-use way.

You can even provide support for Markdown documents so your technical writers stay focused on writing documents (instead of formatting them).

Developer

A superior developer experience – across the developer lifecycle.

Introduce your external and internal developers to your API's through API marketplaces. Educate your developers with a whole range of training materials. And give them flexible support so they can use forums when they want to and internal experts when they need to. Organize and execute hackathons for your external and internal developer ecosystems. Enable your developers to submit apps, review and approve those apps, and publish them in internal and external catalogs and marketplaces.

The tool also gives you a low-touch way to manage developers so you can approve and certify developer applications and their solutions, and even administer benefits to tiered developers.

Partner

The self-service experience your partners crave.

Give your partners an experience they’ll keep coming back for. The Partner dashboard empowers them to self-serve so they can solve problems and innovate faster.

You’ll streamline processes for things like partner approval and solution certification. And you can administer tiered benefits like technical support, marketing assistance and lab access.

Marketplace

Make it easier to make more money

Give your partners and developers an easier way to sell to the market. Automate the processes you need to collect their information and connect them to internal stakeholders for approval.

And implement advanced search and filtering so it takes customers less time to find the solutions they need.
