Here are five important lessons we’ve learned.
It’s that eternal business dilemma: what do I build, and what do I buy? There have never been as many ways for software organization teams to build and assemble their most critical business applications, which is both exciting and confusing at the same time.

To compete with the cloud platforms offered by Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, providers of developer services must offer similar convenience and expansive tool catalogs.

It’s getting harder for businesses that are building technology tools to get attention, traction and ultimately widespread adoption. You can’t just launch an amazing new developer tool and hope developers will find you; providers need to zero in on a specific use case that empowers developers while also ensuring those developers will still have access to the broad ecosystem of other tools they need to do their jobs.

Hidden among the numbers revealed when technology startups go public for the first time, there’s been an interesting trend in recent years: the majority of startups about to go public are entering into exclusive, multiyear contracts with a single cloud provider — locking in cost savings, but also, the company’s business for the long haul.
The Manifold service marketplace is attempting to get ahead of a tidal wave of too many developer options when it comes to leveraging cloud services and APIs and delivering into a containerized, multi-cloud, multi-platform world.
Manifold, a startup known for providing all of the tools developers need in a single marketplace, has decided to make its core product available as a service, so that other companies can build a catalogue of related services without a fuss.

Developers play a major role in the IT management strategy of any organization, but because they represent an edge case, they're often responsible for the launch of new services within the framework. Developers are responsible for creating other services used by employees for a myriad of reasons and
Each cloud provider defines serverless uptime differently. Consider platform reliability, other guarantees, and refund rates before building an event-driven app.

As businesses turn to the cloud they often find themselves adopting multiple different platforms to solve specific problems. This creates a problem for developers who need to deal with multiple tools and systems. Developer services start-up Manifold is aiming to ease this issue with the launch of a new cross-platform tool.
As public cloud infrastructure providers have become more popular, on-premises vendors like to joke that they are like Hotel California for your data: you can never leave. Today, a startup that is co-headquartered in Halifax and San Francisco is launching with a solution to that problem.
Manifold, cloud-agnostic, is working to redefine the developer services ecosystem with a platform that allows developers to find, buy and manage their favorite services easily without being locked into any single cloud platform.
