What is Live-Wireframe?

Live Wireframing is a Low-Code approach to creating enterprise software applications in workshops without coding. 

Designed for business analysts and citizen developers, Live Wireframe™ is our cloud-ready software toolkit that enables business analysts to create software prototypes faster than any other method.  Designers don’t need programming skills because the solution is designed for business analysts and citizen developers.

With encanvas, there’s no need to source new software tools or jump into outsourcing every time someone identifies a process can be improved.  Use Live Wireframe to create apps across the desk with users and stakeholders in near-real-time.  Remove the barrier between IT and the business.  Eradicate spreadsheet apps and shadow data.

The challenge

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 adopts Low-Code tools to produce 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.  This is what Low-Code applications development was born to do.

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 an in-house 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.

My prediction for a codeless enterprise software future

No-lo code is about creating applications without needing to see or use software code. Given that most of us were not born with coding superpowers that might considered be a good thing. In this article, I predict the rapid adoption of codeless enterprise software platforms in the very near-term and give my reasons why.

What is Agile Codeless?

Agile Codeless is a software development life-Cycle (SDLC) approach that embraces codeless authoring tools and methods to produce enterprise apps

What is a HPaPaaS – and do you need one?

HPaPaaS stands for ‘high productivity application Platform as a Service’ – a platform that provides app designers with tools to build enterprise apps fast.


A wireframe is a visual representation and skeletal framework of a web application. Wireframes are used to help applications designers, users and stakeholders to come together.

Rapid Application Development

Rapid-application development (RAD) is a term used to describe any form of adaptive approach that speeds up the process of creating and deploying software applications.

No-lo code software (‘lo-no software’)

Lo-no code software (‘lo-no software’) is a short-hand description for low-code or no-code software development methods and tools.

Explaining enterprise software development life-cycle

Software development is the process of scoping, designing, deploying, documenting, testing, and tuning software applications.’
