. Let'slook at this Partner Network in more detail.The Make Play Live Partner Program is designed to build and support a collaborative business and economic network.Members work together to provide comprehensive professional service and product offerings around Plasma Active anddevices such as Vivaldi. Professional support options make it easier to convince potential parties, such as users, clients,customers and partners, bringing KDE software to a larger group of users.As not all services needs are the same, a way to identify the right companies is important. The Make Play Live Partner Networktherefore denes four different types of partners:•
-- These participants focus on development and support of post-purchase content. You will usually ndthe work of Add-ons Partners in the Add-ons app provided in Plasma Active, either in the form of apps or content, suchas books, movies, music, etc.•

Integration partners have experience with technologies such as Plasma Active or theMer operating system, and are the right partners to get these products running on your device or in your environment.•

All partners work together in a collaborative fashionthat allows them to deliver more sophisticated and complete offerings than any individual partner could on their own.
