System connectivity is a core principle of our low-code platform. No matter the number of systems, or the environment their placed in (on-premise, cloud, etc), you can connect virtually any and all of them to our OMNIA Platform, making use of whatever functionalities they serve. This possibility opens up a huge range of modelling and development scenarios, that would otherwise be impossible, or extremely cost ineffective. In this post, we’ll detail how full system connectivity can be achieved with OMNIA.
One of the key advantages of developing with our platform is its element of reusability. As we’ve described in a previous blog post, our “Import/Export” feature allows you to export an entire web application model, and essentially duplicate your work with a few clicks, in less than 30 seconds. The time saving aspect of this feature is quite self explanatory, and allows our partners to greatly improve their project’s productivity and profitability.
In an ever more interconnected world, different languages and markets are closer to us than ever before. With a click of a button, people from all over the world can visit your website or web application, making a good translation system a very important feature for a multi-market strategy.
The task of validating a field can be a very simple process, but, it can also be a repetitive and unproductive use of a developer’s time. Nowadays, whether you’re developing a web application, or virtually any kind of software that contains input fields, their validation is usually a standard feature.
One of the most important features of the latest (3.0) version of our development platform is its API. Not only is our API easy and very simple to use (see video below), but it’s also automatically generated as you model your application.
As we’ve seen in our part 1 of this series about Web Components (see post), they are not only a highly recommended development tool, but also an immensely powerful and flexible one. These reasons, coupled with its element of reusability, made for a simple and logic decision to include them in our platform.
In complex web application development scenarios, we often need more complex tools than simple boolean or procedural logic. Needs like the creation of auxiliary structures, or centralized calculation logic, are only a few examples where the need for project specific code dependencies exist.
From a business stand point, data analytics is one of the most important aspects of the decision making process. With the ever growing variety of business software available, it’s increasingly common to have multiple separate systems to manage different business areas of a company, but one problem rises from this: data decentralization.
With OMNIA, this stops being a problem.
With the advance of technology and the ever growing increase of screen types and sizes, layout flexibility (or responsive web design) and browser compatibility are a big concern when developing software.
At the same time, UI extensibility is of the utmost importance for development platforms and those were two of the main focus points of our decision to embrace Web Components.
One of the core development principles behind our platform is productivity, and, as we are all aware, successfully reusing, or repurposing, work is one of the most effective ways of progressing towards that goal.
In order to achieve this, we’ve developed a simple “Import – Export” system, placed on our “Modeler Area” (image below), that allows you to export and import your model across tenants, in a matter of seconds.
