Today’s posts on the forum between InnoAppTech and OCC teams’ reps made me think at what could be (in)appropriate to post here. (The posts themselves have been removed from the site however). This is my personal subjective opinion, anyone can agree/disagree with.
I think I understand the reaction of the Forum Supervisor to ban direct commercials. It’s often a convention on most forums.
However, encouraging only free and/or Open Source projects based on OCC would also be undervaluing for the platform and the company eventually. Much of confidence of OCC customers in the platform longevity likely stems from the fact that it has not only enthusiasts’ but also (and primarily) business adoption. So, endorsing business cases are also in the best OCC interests, in my opinion.
Galleries of projects or complementary partner products (which exist today on this site) are relevant but they seem to not applicable for cases like InnoAppTech, as far as I understand. At the same time, its case could be interesting for other readers (like Jelle was commenting). So perhaps, some repository of business cases could be thought of and created.
Again, I am just sharing my perspective and welcoming a discussion. Hopefully the OCC team would not mind this and would join the discussion (even if at the level of personal comments, if that’s appropriate).
