How to leverage low-code
for complex applications

To be able to ship out complex applications, the low-code platform you choose needs to align with the organization’s development strategy, existing tech stack, and practices. Inability to generate real code, lack of architectural best practices, narrow set of pre-defined integrations, widgets and templates with no clear fallback to customize or extend through code, are all red flags when it comes to enterprise app development. From UI to deployment, the key is to make sure your low-code platform plugs in seamlessly at all layers.

How WaveMaker accelerates
enterprise app development

Develop rich, responsive apps using modern UI features

WaveMaker low-code platform auto-generates open standards-based readable code, with its drag-and-drop features and modern UI frameworks such as Angular 7, ensuring rich UI and responsive UX.

Automate creation of APIs from existing services

WaveMaker provides one-click API creation, where microservices are auto-created and developers can use existing database logic, reuse existing Java code and create new Java code in IDEs of their choice, such as Eclipse.

Abstract complexity and achieve full stack development

WaveMaker abstracts underlying complexities of binding UI to back-end data sources, security configuration, API integration and creation, etc., and helps developers own and manage end-to-end application development.

Democratize the delivery and deployment process

WaveMaker supports CI/CD, helping developers deploy application artifacts to any Java application server, and makes it effortless to deploy on-premises or on multi cloud by integrating with existing enterprise CI tools like Jenkins.

Migrate from proprietary technologies easily

WaveMaker allows you to leverage existing assets and reuse components; the visual development features make it easy to migrate from legacy applications based on proprietary technologies such as Lotus Notes, MS Access and Oracle Forms.

Why WaveMaker appeals to
enterprise IT teams

Beyond simple apps with good looking UI, writing complex apps needs a developer’s craft,
and that can happen only if the low-code platform you adopt is built to serve a professional
developer’s purpose. Professionals need low-code that helps them build complete
solutions, with future proof technology & architecture, giving them a competitive advantage
to go to market faster with powerful features.

Here are some compelling factors that make WaveMaker the preferred low-code platform
for development teams looking to build serious, scalable applications.

Integration in the
backyard

WaveMaker supports SOAP and Java-based connectors for any custom integrations, without disrupting existing practices. Developers can continue using their Git, Selenium, Jenkins etc. for testing and CI/CD, thus closing the gap for automation between apps and these systems.

Coexistence with
BPM

Pure play BPM-based workflow engines like Camunda, jBPM, Activiti can be integrated with WaveMaker. Businesses can continue to leverage BPM tools while app teams will provide the necessary integration to plug-in to these workflows.

How to go agile
with WaveMaker

Collaborate on cloud, reduce dependencies, and get to market fast

Strengthen the developer toolbox

The developer role is among the hardest to fill. WaveMaker empowers your IT teams with drag-and-drop features and out-of-the-box modern UI frameworks such as Angular, to build with minimal coding while ensuring code quality, maintainability and extensibility.

Accelerate idea-to-app
journey

Say NO to sitting on a huge backlog of user stories. With WaveMaker, app teams can prototype rapidly, collaborate with business teams instantly, and test more features. This clears backlog and paves way for experimentation with all kinds of ideas.

Boost adaptability
to change

Welcoming change, even late in the SDLC is a fundamental principle in the agile manifesto. By freeing up time spent in hand-coding, data integration, and manual deployment, WaveMaker allows for focus on the customer, making changes to apps easy, and managing those changes easier.

 

Easily deploy at scale with speed

By its very nature, enterprise app development demands scale. WaveMaker platform with auto-containerization, cloud-native architecture and integrated CI/CD pipeline can automate your entire deployment process, resulting in real-time updates to the cloud without any delays.
