Businesses are coming under attack; both from regulation & legislation, supply-chain and from continuous competitive pressure, ‘’everyone wants to eat everyone else’s lunch.’’
All this puts pressure on increasing indirect costs and ultimately margins. Too many companies are burdened with legacy systems, that neither do what the business needs today or what the business wants for the future. Too many ‘shadow IT solutions,’ spreadsheets, workarounds or user-defined databases or manual systems promote inefficiency
’The digital economy is filled with challenges, opportunities and risks’’…does that apply to you?
To compete and win; the most innovative businesses are embracing new business models and processes that drive improved value for customers and employees, companies need a formal BPM initiative that enables them to; move faster, innovate faster and work smarter.
82% can’t attract and retain the software engineers they need
72% don’t believe they can scale to keep up with business demand in the coming years
20% of businesses have 50 or more major apps development requests in their backlog
91% struggle with resource to address business critical apps
‘Low-code’ business process application development platforms bring three core capabilities to organisations, that is a perfect fit to help enable real digital transformation.
Low-code dev platforms add value in three specific ways:
Edge IT Group has partnered with Mercato, the authors of the world-leading KnowledgeKube Low-code development platform. The object of many companies is to automate each and every process within their business; in many cases this will involve updating antique legacy systems, a myriad of spreadsheets and web-based applications that suffer from poor UX & UI front-ends. Edge IT Group will work client-side to:
KnowledgeKube allows your business users to create powerful applications faster without having to excessively write code or look for additional developer assistance. At the heart of the development process, users become the domain experts.
While building applications, users can showcase their progress with stakeholders and key teams. Modifications to apps can be performed and tested in real-time for true agile development.
The low code platform incorporates role-based users; this enables different application views, areas and control. It has never been easier to consume, update, search and display relevant content to your users.
Building solutions that leverage emerging technologies, IoT, Machine Learning and Cognitive Services are typically very complex, requiring many different platforms, bespoke software and a multitude of skillful people. Edge manage projects powered by KnowledgeKube, this allows us to easily incorporate new technology to drive intelligent, context-aware and proactive smart applications.
Build apps that automatically adapt interfaces and behaviour based upon business and environmental conditions. Future-Proof solutions to incorporate new interactional inputs such as conversational interfaces, chatbots and wearables.
Quickly enhance your apps with real-time analytics, machine learning, and AI services, and with the ability to connect to unlimited API’s we can provide full end-to-end solutions that incorporate both legacy and future systems.
Prototyping is an integral part of the design process, it provides a deeper understanding of user behaviour, empowers teams to review working concepts and provides better feedback earlier in the lifecycle of a project.
KnowledgeKube allows the construction of working prototypes from day one, by deploying agile, iterative development, your prototype apps seamlessly evolve into production versions, saving significant amounts of both time and money while also reducing the risk of failure.
The KnowledgeKube low-code platform helps your team focus on users while also satisfying business objectives
Inbuild design framework libraries enable better-looking fluid designs with consistent application interfaces out of the box, helping to promote end product consistency throughout your portfolio. Not only that, but the platform also fully supports all web-standard technologies, ensuring consistency across all new and existing online outputs.
The KnowledgeKube low-code platform helps your teams focus on users throughout the entire design and development process, allowing them to deliver apps that satisfy both user needs and business objectives.
Enable active involvement of business users across the complete application lifecycle with an integrated collaboration portal.
Share working prototypes instantly with users to begin collecting and iterating based on real-world feedback, continually gather insights with a built-in feedback loop that’s integrated into the development environment.
Instead of throw-away mock-ups, KnowledgeKube allows your teams to create working prototypes that evolve seamlessly to production apps, saving significant time and effort.
Extend prototypes with complex logic and integrations with the KnowledgeKube’s modelling functionality, promoting collaboration through a shared visual language.
Iteratively develop solutions with built-in tools for managing agile projects, quickly deploy and scale successful apps, leveraging out-of-the-box high availability and failover for Web-scale operations.
Using KnowledgeKube UI, your UX resources can define an enterprise design language for developers to leverage within their apps, promoting consistency and reuse across your app portfolio.
Create an enterprise design language containing your brand’s theme and a customised set of page templates, building blocks, and widgets.
Empower developers without UI design skills to deliver great UX leveraging reusable UI elements based on best practices.
We take security very seriously. Data is transparently encrypted to protect it in play or at rest; network communications are encrypted, high availability and scalability options are a given, and our private cloud and the KnowledgeKube platform are ISO 27001, CESG and Cyber Essentials Plus security accredited.
Identity management and security information are essential features of KnowledgeKube, dependant on role management for new user approvals and access permissions to solutions.
The low code platform utilises Microsoft .NET technology providing both high scalability and durability for all solutions deployed. Backed by Microsoft Trusted Cloud, KnowledgeKube solutions are both scalable and secure having already been deployed worldwide in more than 150 countries.
