Salesforce Rejiggers Enterprise Apps Partner Plan


Salesforce on Tuesday launched the AppExchange Partner Program, or APP, for developers, independent software vendors and startups, as a replacement for its current ISV Partner Program. The APP will cost much less. Its baseline percent-net-revenue model for all new APP partners has been slashed from 25 percent to 15 percent. Current partners will be eligible for the new PNR terms on contract renewal. Partner tiers will be eliminated. The APP provides enablement and support based on the partner’s AppExchange Trailblazer Score, a new point-based system.

Apple to Boost App Store Money-Making Opportunities
