Waldur Digital Marketplace supports a wide number of scenarios, which operator of Waldur can implement. The scenarios are complementary and could be combined to provide additional value for the target audience.

Application store

Waldur operator can enrich offerings to the users by providing a list of pre-validated IaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings. Support and operations of all offerings is assured by central authority.

Gateway for SMEs

Waldur operator defines rules of engagements and allows SMEs to register and publish descriptions of their products and services, including pricing terms. Operator can validate offerings to make sure that they are honest and optimal for the public sector. In this scenario, Waldur Marketplace can serve as an extension to the tendering mechanism.

Marketplace for G2B and G2G services

Public agencies can expose their services for the business sector in a clear and transparent manner, hence allowing SMEs to consume them in a digital fashion.

Data embassy

A pre-agreed publishing and management mechanism for applications on the Marketplace allows to relocate services running on a Government cloud across data centers, including data centers located in other countries.

Real-time economy

Real-time economy is a concept, where decision making can use information about the ecosystem using actual situation. Enabler for real-time is digitization of processes. Waldur Marketplace allows to provide input for the decision making tools in the form of reporting about costs, service providers, sizes of operational teams and other aspects of service management.


Digital Marketplace significantly simplifies offering of services to the public sector by offering a transparent digital pathwayfor service providers. Waldur Digital Marketplace builds upon a Waldur Government Cloud solution for enabling online deployments of the selected services without additional overhead. To assure successful implementation of the solution, an agile and evolving approach is suggested. It allows to mitigate the risks related to process integration and adaptation of policies. Principles for achieving a successful implementation are:

  • Start with a minimal pilot Digital Marketplace deployment for collecting early customer feedback.
  • In the pilot phase, expose at least 2 new applications in the Marketplace for validating provisioning experience.
  • Adapt existing or devise new Digital Marketplace policies, processes and requirements, based on the feedback collected from the pilot phase.
  • Launch a closed beta Digital Marketplace to validate the process with larger number of stakeholders.
  • Create a partner ecosystem and develop local knowledge base for further adoption of Digital Marketplace.
  • Production phase should be based on open policies.
