Whether it is to find improved efficiencies or to improve customer engagement, organizations are looking to automate anything and everything they can. Unsurprisingly, this is putting significant pressure on IT organizations to increase the rate of application development at a time in which resources are already spread thin. This exponentially growing demand has led enterprises to seek ways to improve developer efficiency as well as to empower so-called citizen development.
The platforms that increase developer efficiency have mostly been distinct from those that enable citizen development. Metavine aims to bridge that divide. The company initially created its no-code platform to help developers accelerate the rate of development using its natural language-based rules engine and drag-and-drop functionality. The company has recently announced what it calls Metavine Go to enable citizen developers to create dashboards and automated workflows without involvement from IT.
The bridge between these two environments comes from what Metavine calls its ‘gadgets.’ The platform’s architecture enables IT to package business logic, specific data access or complete mini-applications into these gadgets, which business analysts and other non-IT users can then use in the development of targeted applications.
Further, the platform enables granular security at both a functional and data level and provides a library function that facilitates the sharing of applications and gadgets across the organization, thus avoiding duplicate effort. The result is an integrated approach that enables IT to accelerate development and allow business units to take on more of the workload, while ensuring continuity, governance, and integration across the enterprise.
