Two decades of no-code innovation 

Encanvas is the only totally complete, totally integrated, totally codeless ‘design, deploy and run’ environment for enterprise quality applications.  We made it possible back in 2003.  We’ve been innovating ever since.  

Learn about our experiences below.


Timeline of Encanvas No-Code Innovations


Created the first true code-less ‘design, deploy and run’ applications platform for the enterprise. We came runners-up in the OXIN Awards that year for our innovation. Back then, encanvas was called Jigsaw and was described by experts as an Enterprise Mashups platform.


Encanvas v 2.0 deployed out on the .NET platform now featuring multi-threaded, multi-sourcing and multi-linking and MassiveScalingArchitecture™


We create the Information Flow Designer and Server modules (a pre-cursor to Encanvas Software Robots) to help Transport for London harvest insights from 100+ industry organizations to improve advanced roadworks planning across Greater London.


Encanvas Maps design element that re-defined GIS possibilities by installing data management good practice, removing the use of composite files for GIS apps


Launch of encanvas version 3.0 with CSS design integration and Version-Rollback™, platform version control system


Launch of Squork™ social messaging module – a year before WHATSAPP was founded! We should’ve done more with that one!


Launch of Secure[Spaces]™ v3.RS container-based cloud architecture


Launch of encanvas version v3.SS™ with virtual cloud web (CSS) design integration. It made it possible for designers to segment their layouts to add canvases to different screen areas providing for richer user experiences and more menu possibilities.


Launch of Encanvas version v4 with AppFabric™ and Hyper-Drive™ plug-In (which takes us to the original value driver of encanvas – to connect ‘anything to anything’ in the enterprise architecture!) bringing artificial intelligence into view of millions of enterprises that have so far lacked the affordable means to embed AI in their business processes and systems.
