Application designers have a huge responsibility. The apps we produce perform critical tasks and users might have to live with them for years to come
When enterprises come up with a new business model or way of doing things, they need an information management platform to serve customers better and support back-office operations to deliver outcomes. Live WireFrame produces ready-to-deploy applications comprising of the user interface, forms, process (if/then) logic, data structures (combining harvested data aggregations) and automated machine to machine workflows in near real-time.
To build or to buy, that is the question
There’s almost no argument these days that businesses need to serve their customer communities better than ever and have a very efficient way of turning their customer value into shareholder returns. This ‘capability’ is defined by a business model.
Neither would any business leader generally argue that we live in an age where information is the lifeblood of enterprise, and orchestrating a business model with technology is key to growth and success.
To produce a digital platform and customer ecosystem, business leaders have a stark choice confronting them; to build or buy. Buying a solution can all but remove a competitive advantage while reducing the ability of the business to adapt to change. Building a solution means that companies are faced with being their own IT supplier and will take on all of the risks associated with software development and support. Is it worth it? We would argue, certainly not when applications are programmed by humans. So, is there another way?
The job we help to do better
Imagine walking into a workshop where business people are busy explaining to an analyst how their new business model (or application) needs to work. Across the desk, the analyst is busying herself (or himself) creating the application in near real-time. After an hour or so, the new application module is online and ready for people to use. Sound a little far-fetched. Oh. (Awkward). Because, that’s how people have been creating solutions to their information management needs with Encanvas since 2002.

If you've never seen LIVE WIREFRAME in action...
If you’re not already using a code-less design environment then maybe you should see it for yourself. Why not request a fire-side chat and experience ‘across the desk’ applications design close-up with one of our experienced consultants?
