Software is blocky. Each line and block of software code is provided in a block because it relates to a tree of instructions, classes, or logic that form a definable domain of functional programming in the resulting application or service constructed. Software becomes a block because small subcomponent elements of software can now be containerized in so-called “containers”. This allows us to successfully orchestrate using cloud-native technologies such as Kubernetes.
Additionally, the software is blocked. It uses low-code and no-code technology to make some of the more definable, repeatable, and automatable processes that occur within your application through a GUI interface, possibly drag-and-drop. This is because it is now possible to shortcut through the ease of
These blocky truths have often led commentators to use Lego block analogies to describe how software is developed today. But can software development, especially software development in the no-code space, get one block bigger and better with extensions that grasp the composable software architecture services that underpin increasingly block-based applications?
Creative thinks so. The company is a software vendor specializing in products designed to automate workflow and customer relationship management (CRM) functions. Use no-code tools, primarily visual interface-based software tools that allow users to drag and drop, point and drop. Click (and in some cases touch screen usage may be present), pinch-and-zoom your way to software application development.
The company’s latest update enhances its configurable software architecture capabilities, combined with an AI-driven recommendation engine for workflow design and automation.
Сreatio provides a composable architecture that enables organizations to accelerate the application design process and maximize reusability of out-of-the-box components. The platform provides a library of configurable elements that no-code creators can use to assemble functional blocks, applications, and full-fledged products with no code.
A composable no-code architecture means that all components are pluggable, replaceable, and reusable, eliminating the need for configuration, customization, and development effort when the application needs to change according to business needs. Replaces a fair amount.
“As part of the new architecture, Creatio will feature improved user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) elements for desktop and mobile versions of its platform,” the company said in a technical statement. “This provides users with an engaging experience and advanced personalization. The updated Freedom UI Designer now includes a comprehensive library of pre-defined views, widgets and templates, You can build beautiful applications quickly and at scale.”
Alex Petrunenko, Product Evangelist at Creatio, goes on to say that his company’s technology offers a very granular level of configurability at the functional level of the application. Traditional development literally turns into an “assembly” exercise, as developers can now use even the tiniest aspects of an application (such as a set of fields or buttons) as components. Such components can be combined into blocks that are further used to create apps and full-fledged products with no code.
“Additionally, with such an approach, there is an opportunity to involve more non-technical people in the development process. We are seeing the rise of new personas. , understands business processes and solves problems naturally, these no-code authors can now use components and blocks with less reliance on corporate IT and resource availability. This means pushing the boundaries of the Lego-based approach to software development by democratizing the whole process,” said Petrunenko.
AI-assisted workflow automation
Creatio’s process management designer has also been enhanced with AI-assisted development capabilities.
New AI-driven capabilities provide “no-code creators” with guidance and recommendations on how to design and automate workflows to maximize impact on business outcomes. The engine uses historical data and built-in best practices to provide intelligent recommendations. AI-assisted workflow automation capabilities are focused on increasing end-user productivity and efficiency while speeding up workflow design.
Some old-school coding purists flinch, frown, and writhe at the term, but use the term “no-code creator” to refer to someone (usually a businessman, often in the work function area). Experts, usually people without formal training in software). Engineering, data science, etc., and perhaps those who have ultimate financial responsibility for business actions) will be able to create software that can be used by a variety of people throughout the organization, thus reducing the reality of these non-programmers. is real and what stubborn types have to live with right now.
Is “No Code Creator” Dangerous?
For businesses to use no-code software safely, they need to set policy guidelines to control the use and scope of the software beyond the level at which business users are exposed to the no-code software. This is not the same as business rules. Business rules work at a more operational level to describe how a no-code (or other) application will behave in a particular scenario (e.g. if an employee is overdue whether to flag the status, etc.). This is a policy that governs how much functionality a no-code creator can actually bring to the business operations.
This type of functionality seems to be fully proven in Creatio. As for policy control, Petrunenko said the company has created a full-fledged application on his Creatio platform that manages governance and policy control processes.
“This app No-code playbook governance frameworkIt allows users to access the level of application complexity (simple, medium or complex), define and assign the required governance checklists… and from a compliance and IT security perspective We initiate an automated approval process that involves the right employees,” explains Petrunenko.
The app proactively identifies potential risks during the application building process (for example, if a no-code author starts building an app that exposes financial or personal information), provides alerts, and It also includes a number of built-in rules that can suggest good governance. Approved.
The whole low-code/no-code world is becoming more controlled, more automated, and (hard to argue) more interesting. No code is the new yes code. Please wait for the brand slogan soon.
