We are excited by the response from our OpenText partners so I wanted to share the top three reasons why our technology partners truly benefit from the new, expanded low-code development capabilities and how it will earn a spot in developers’ arsenals.
Reason #1: Ease of building content-rich automation
Customers and partners are building a growing number of mission-critical applications driven by content. Whether they depend on these applications to drive business decisions, resolve customer issues or co-create content with partners outside the business, they must overcome some common EIM challenges:
- Information siloes in legacy systems and content repositories
- Fragmented departmental solutions, including “shadow IT,” with inconsistent content governance and control
- Compliance within a global regulatory environment
- High user expectations for both powerful functionality and ease of use
Our low-code greatly simplifies application development for content-rich automation. At the same time, it gives enterprise IT the control it needs over integration. Few CIOs want individual developers building their own integrations willy-nilly; they want conformance to an established blueprint.
Our low-code platform is not limited to Enterprise Information Management (EIM) applications or integration with OpenText products. It supports:
- Any type of digital business automation: case-centric, content-centric and process-centric apps
- Custom mobile applications
- Custom APIs
Reason #2: Mobile first
Across most types of applications, mobile is no longer a nice-to-have or an afterthought. Users expect to have a great experience no matter what device they’re using. Low-code applications built on our platform are natively mobile from inception.
Reason #3: Low code for high speed
Business owners are demanding more functionality, faster. They want their development partners to work more like cloud companies, where functionality is ready for users with a few mouse clicks. With our low-code, developers can go through one or more prototyping cycles without breaking the budget.
The low-code approach to accelerate business results
Whether you’re an enterprise, a services company or an independent developer, your success depends on getting solutions into production in the least amount of time and at the lowest cost.
OpenText™ Process Suite Release 16 completely changed how OpenText enterprise customers build business solutions. So we have taken the enabling technologies from Process Suite and applied it to another key constituency for OpenText—our partners and developers. I can’t wait to see the applications that you build!
