Digital technologies, digital data, digital media, digital marketing, digital transformation – we hear about it all the time. The digital revolution is in full swing. The big question is, which path does one follow when it comes to going digital? What is digital transformation and why is it important and why is it important to develop digital transformation strategies for a company?
An increasingly important component of digital transformation is the application of technologies across all business functions so as to better understand their needs and build even better customer relationships. But this is just one way to look at it. A digital strategy entails planning for new frontiers, utilizing innovation and new technologies, and using them to drive your business forward. The goal is to find a new way to improve an existing service through design, delivery, and overall user experience. It is a new way of interacting with customers.
So how can your company achieve all this and more? The answer is simple – with Mendix.
Mendix develops, tests, deploys and iterates applications based on low-code technology. Founded in 2005, it is based on visual, model-driven software development, and provides business analysts and teams with a cloud ecosystem for team development as well as low-code development tools.
It is a platform for building high productivity mobile and web applications, which can be continuously improved at scale. From ideation to deployment and operation, the Mendix platform is designed to accelerate enterprise application development.
How can Low Coding Platforms help accelerate digital transformation?
Here are some ways by which you can use Mendix to optimize your organization's digital transformation:
Improved Business Process Applications: With the right low-code platform like Mendix, you can build consumer-grade applications that automate end-to-end processes. You can integrate process logic into your scalable applications by using Workflow, a BPMN-based visual process editor found in both Mendix IDEs (Studio and Studio Pro). In addition, you’ll find pre integrated support for RPA tools and app services including document automation, data capturing, and text processing.
Through Mendix, you can integrate AI functionality into your applications through drag- and-drop configurations, or you can look for third-party AI solutions in the Marketplace.
Integrated Data Management: Even in the most complex and challenging enterprise data landscapes, low-code applications for data integration enable developers to discover, understand, and connect data instantly. If you have the proper low-code platform, you will be able to govern and secure those connections easily.
Get a centralized view over multiple data sources, so you can read, write, and update data as and when you need with Mendix. Data modeling with Domain Modeler allows you to visually design new data models, and store those new data models effectively. Data Hub, the latest product in the Mendix family, lets you create composite data views from myriad data sources. This is an open, standards-based metadata repository that allows a range of developers to find, understand, and utilize data.
User Experience: An application's success depends on meeting users where they want to be met. A low-code platform should allow developers to offer best in class experiences across mobile, wearables, AR/VR, chat, and other channels. And the tools offered by Mendix for user experience are exactly that. Mendix includes controls, style sheets, and templates that can be customized and reused. A great range of tools are included with the Atlas UI framework, including a theme creator, navigation layouts, page templates and pre-designed building blocks. Create a brand language and build reusable brands assets, components, and modules to ensure those designing solutions follow your branding guidelines.
Mendix is a low-code and highly productive platform that enables businesses to compete with apps and innovate. With its visual models, you can create apps quickly and easily. Professionals of all levels, from designers to developers, can create innovative apps without having to write complex code.
