Software Developer Kit
Developing for our platform and our store
By nature, all software in our platform is fully customizable through plugins, whether they are CLC Workbench or CLC Server products.
Our platform gives you all the necessary software infrastructure on the client side as well as on the server side to make your work as easy as possible. For example, when you deploy a plugin on your enterprise server, the algorithmic functionality of your work is automatically available on your network in the form of a web service.
If you need help with your plugin developments or integrations, we are willing to help you with technical support for a favorable fee. We can also help you with your specific developments through our Consulting Department.Visit CLC Developer Connection Download the product sheet for CLC Developer Kit

As a company we can also help you with product launch and marketing around your releases on CLC platforms.
This is an excellent opportunity to make your research available to a wide number of users.
The plugins may be distributed free of charge, or they may be distributed commercially. The type of distribution and the price of commercially distributed plugins is decided jointly by you and us.

Integrate 3rd party systems or services
Integrate 3rd party systems or services — either your own or public — into your current CLC software installation
As a professional software company, we know that our solutions are not the center of your software systems universe. Therefore a common use case is to benefit from our customizations capabilities to make connections and integrations to existing and future 3rd party software systems.
This could for example be LIMS (Laboratory Informations Management System) or external databases, either in-house or as a service similar to NCBI Genbank. With SDK’s for all our solutions, whether they are large or small, there are virtually no limits to which systems you can make integration points to.
Furthermore it is also possible to incorporate services from our Enterprise Platform into existing workflows or routines due to the SOA driven nature of our platform.
We can also be the driver of your customizations based on contract, and furthermore it is also possible to invoke integrations in collaboration with us. Read more about our consulting solutions.
Our SDKs are always a part of our solutions, and with the documentation of CLC Developer Connection, you are ready to start customizing our solutions to fit your needs.Visit CLC Developer Connection for more information
