We live in an era where technology accelerates the speed at which almost anything is done. For those in the IT sector, digitization is the best way for organizations to benefit from this acceleration and keep-up with ever-developing customer demands and expectations.
ManageEngine has provided organizations with essential solutions for the entire IT landscape, from advanced IT analytics to enterprise service management. But not every business will have the same problem statements or have requirements that off-the-rack software can solve.
This is where custom applications come into play! Designed for an organization’s specific needs, custom apps can help take ManageEngine solutions one step further.
There are, however, many roadblocks that usually curb an organizations’s desire to adapt to custom applications. The dominant ones are:
Lack of technical experts or developers.
So what’s the most dynamic way to create modern applications tailor-made to suit your unique requirements whilst overcoming the above hurdles? Low-code application development.
What is low-code application development?
Low-code application development is a way to design and develop applications with little or no coding. Low-code application development platforms empower businesses to build custom solutions with innovative functionalities that cater to specific business models. These platforms offer visual user interfaces and ready-to-use code snippets rather than just the traditional hand-coded method. They also include built-in connectors that speed up development and extend the ability to innovate to a broader set of people.
Introducing ManageEngine AppCreator!
And so, after considering the pain points of IT folks and the roadblocks they may face while they adapt custom solutions, we are excited to announce the launch of AppCreator, a low-code application development platform that lets IT developers build powerful custom applications rapidly and launch them on-premises.
With the support of low-code technology, business and IT can work hand in hand and build highly intuitive enterprise solutions. Low-code technology allows business users to create prototypes with ease, which can be further developed by IT, greatly speeding up the development process. Also, its advanced governance tools allow IT teams to better control the solutions developed and used in the organization.
Let’s look at some exciting features to keep an eye out for!
Visual development: Our platform combines intuitive visual builders and ready-made code blocks to help you build modern business apps fast. Just drag and drop elements and see your apps come alive instantly.
Multi-device solutions: The apps you build on the web run natively on PCs, tablets, and iOS and Android mobile devices. With the on-premises setup, you have control over all aspects of your data—where it’s stored, the levels of data encryption, and who has access to it.
Business intelligence and analytics: From reporting to dashboards, get insights and perform an in-depth analysis of your business. Add any number of charts and widgets to make your data easy to understand and pinpoint any deviations or anomalies.
Online portals: Use portals to simplify how your customers and business partners interact with your company’s applications and data. Portals can be accessed smoothly on computers or mobile devices with a fully responsive design.
These features are only the tip of the iceberg, and there’s a lot more to explore! But we aren’t stopping with just power-packed features.
AppCreator urges organizations to encourage “citizen development” from within. Citizen developers grew out of a two-fold problem: a shortage of skilled programmers and an increasing hunger for mobile apps. Citizen development bypasses the hurdle of transporting information across an organization by making it available to every employee with little or no app-building expertise to build applications using low-code and no-code tools.
With many such avenues to discover on low-code, AppCreator aims to cater to all your unique needs and provide optimal outcomes. We are excited about empowering IT teams across all enterprises and would love for you to try the platform and let us know what you think. Interested?
