Resolution #2: Provide Better Support for Third-Party LabVIEW Add-Ons

LabVIEW is such a huge platform that is used in so many application areas that we can’t do it all ourselves. We rely heavily on our customer community and third-party companies to extend, expand, connect to, or plug into LabVIEW to continue to push it in new directions. From a technical perspective, we could do a lot better at providing access, documentation, and a general architecture that would allow our users – particularly product/utility developers – to extend LabVIEW. Hopefully you will see some evidence that we are working to close this gap in 2009.

It’s not limited to technical issues either. We are reviewing our product “partnering programs” in great detail to come up with better ways to support the business (sales, marketing, distribution, etc) needs of people, from large platform companies to mom-and-pop shops, to deliver valuable addons to the user base. Just today, our LabVIEW Product Partnering guy gave the rest of the LabVIEW product managers a demo of JKISoftware’s VI Package Manager for LabVIEW (it’s relevant to this topic in a couple of dimensions).
