Cloud business applications

Facing the new reality, where innovation and solutions need to be delivered within months and not years, where the availability of a talented workforce has become one of the major sustainability risks for most organizations in all sectors, businesses need to change their approach to how information management solutions are being developed, maintained, and modernized. The concept of building Cloud business applications using a low-code framework provides autonomy, flexibility, and agility to respond to an organization’s demands for adaptable and scalable solutions.

My organization needs to

  • Quickly develop a new application that can be adjusted to specific needs and maintained by our team;
  • Decrease the costs of application development and maintenance;
  • Increase the quality of customer service and gain a better understanding of customer needs;
  • Enable mobile workforce with relevant just-in-time data to increase their productivity;
  • Migrate from legacy on-prem systems into the cloud;
  • Reduce support and maintenance costs of legacy on-prem systems;
  • Quickly build integrations between internal and external information systems;
  • Better utilize existing Microsoft product infrastructure delivering higher business value;
  • Deliver more solutions to my business organization involving limited IT talent;

Solution

Any specially designed and customized information management system that an organization uses to automate its processes and runs in the cloud. This is not a standardized product, but a special solution developed according to the needs of the organization.

In many organisations process digitalization and automatization requirements arise more rapidly than the organisation can implement them. Lack of IT specialists and budget limits are significant obstacles that restrict the companies to improve their activity or introducing new services sooner and of a higher quality. A relatively long and complicated software development cycle, where several months may pass from defining the business need until receiving the first version of the product, does not allow the organisations to quickly respond to the events in the market and changes of the client requirements.

The concept of building Cloud business applications using a low-code framework provides autonomy, flexibility, and agility to respond to organization’s demands for adaptable and scalable solutions. Application development and Application modernisation practices using cloud-native low-code environment give customers the flexibility to adopt technology when and how they need it to improve their business outcomes. By using the low-code approach, costs of systems development may be reduced by 70%, and they may be partially developed by the business users themselves, reducing the load to IT professionals in the organisation. Gartner Research forecasts that 65% of all business applications of organisations will be developed in a low-code environment in 2024.

Benefits
