Configuring instead of coding 2018-07-12T17:15:44+00:00

CONFIGURING INSTEAD OF CODING

DIGITALIZATION OF BUSINESS PROCESSES

It is not the big that eat the small, but the fast that eat the slow – companies that want to drive their digitization strategy considerably should internalize this principle. Because only those who operate in real time and have an overview of all data can survive in competition. In addition, there are constantly growing requirements from both customers and employees. Enterprise mobility is the key term here.

The exploding spread of mobile phones has also changed users’ expectations. The demand for digital services has been constantly increasing for years and will continue to grow in the future. The digitization of business processes is currently one of the most important tasks for companies in all industries. In order to realize the overriding goal of speed, companies should align their development department to this.

INCREASE SPEED BY CONFIGURATION

With the right low-code platform which can be used for their own needs, companies can face this task confidently and without worries. Especially for IT or development departments with a lack of resources, low-code platforms offer an opportunity to cover the huge need for applications and their requirements. The low-code approach allows applications to be created up to ten times faster, which significantly increases development speed and reduces costs.

Both an unexperienced user and a full-stack developer can benefit from development platforms. This approach enables complex applications to be implemented without complex coding. The most common, basic functions should be usable at a configurable level. For functionalities for which a configuration is not possible, the application can additionally be enriched by the extension of individual program code.

The user has an advantage due to the configuration approach that parts of the application can be adapted independently without in-depth programming knowledge. This not only relieves the development department, but also saves time and costs, because smaller change requests can be implemented by the user immediately and without having a long delay.

“Low-code development platforms are: Products and/or cloud services for application development that employ visual, declarative techniques instead of programming and are available to customers at low or no cost in money and training time to begin, with costs rising in proportion of the business value of the platforms.”
John R. Rymer (2017). Forrester, Vendor Landscape: A Fork In The Road For Low-Code Development Platforms, www.forrester.com

THE DEMAND FOR LOW-CODE PLATFORMS GROWS

As recently as in June 2014, the term low code was assigned by industry analyst Forrester Research. From that time on, Forrester has recorded annual growth rates of up to 35%. Overall, there is a high level of customer interest and acceptance of low-code development platforms among companies. The use of these technologies and the associated increase in efficiency may have an impact on rising sales and higher growth rates. Forrester published a market analysis that points to a rapidly growing market with predicted growth rates of up to 55%.

THE PROBLEMS AT A GLANCE

  • constantly growing requirements from both the customer and the employees

  • increasing demand for digital services

  • Implementation of complex applications is too time-consuming

  • lack of programming skills

  • Skilled professionals are rare or too expensive

HOW THESE PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED

CONFIGURATION OF APPLICATIONS

The low-code approach of the Simplifier platform allows a high number of applications to be created, deployed and managed up to ten times faster.

By using easy-to-use elements in the user interface (UI), you can easily “combine” your personal app with a few clicks. There are several long established functional elements available for this purpose.

UI DESIGNER

You can use the UI Designer to create and design simple and intuitive user interfaces. Pre-configured layouts and elements are easily added by drag & drop and the properties are adjusted.

You can create your own elements at any time and add templates for further use. This way you build a useful library of elements such as tables, buttons and complete login forms, which you can use for further applications each time.

PROCESS DESIGNER

In the Process Designer, you create navigation steps and process-logics without any need to use code. By splitting the processes into individual user stories within the Process Dashboard, reusable processes are defined that can be collaboratively processed by several developers in parallel.

Individual modifications or extensions or even the use of special functions are still possible by coding as required. Necessary data sources such as existing ERP systems or used sensors are quickly and easily integrated into the processes via pre-configured interfaces (connectors).

NO-CODE VS. LOW-CODE VS. CODE

Using the Simplifier you will be able to reach high speed by configuring applications and interfaces. Applications are configurable up to 80%, therefore only a few individual coding is necessary.

The following parts are currently completely (No-Code), mostly (Low-Code) or not yet (Code) configurable within the Simplifier:

No Code Low Code Code
UI Designer
Customize Widgets
Corporate Design
Process Designer
Connectors (integrate systems)
Plugin
Business Object Logic
Business Object Parameter
Jobs
Templates
Data types * *
User Roles & Permissions
Transports
Test applications
Deploy applications
*depends on the data type

THE BENEFITS IN A NUTSHELL

  • Configuration instead of coding

  • Pre-configured elements and layouts speed up the creation of applications

  • Created elements can be re-used

  • Defining logics by using user stories for re-usable processes

  • Instantly integration of data sources via pre-defined connectors
