You Need a HPaPaaS Because…

To exist as a successful enterprise in the digital age, your business needs to offer an above and beyond customer experience and bring more value to customers than its competitive rivals.  It will require an effective business model; i.e. the ability to maximize it customer value and shareholder returns. 

To orchestrate your business model, you will require a digital platform, or ecosystem, that’s tailored to optimize your business value; one that leverages the latest digital technologies.  Over time, it becomes your competitive differentiator, something Systems-of-Record were never designed to do.

A High-Productivity applications Platform-as-a-Service (HPaPaaS) is an enterprise applications software platform that equips businesses with the tools they need to design, deploy applications at very low cost.  It achieves this by removing coding and scripting tasks and the overheads of programming applications.

Introducing Encanvas Secure&Live

Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’) is a High-Productivity applications Platform-as-a-Service. Unlike its rivals, encanvas is completely codeless (not just Low-Code), so it removes the barriers between IT and the business.

From the very beginning we wanted encanvas to be more SECURE for data than any other enterprise application platform, and more scalable too.  Equally, we wanted to enable business people, so-called citizen developers, (not coders) to develop wireframe prototypes and applications LIVE in workshops. 

Since we launched Create Design Studio in 2003, it’s evolved to embrace many new innovations – big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, java visualizations, CSS, software robots and more. 

Today, you just need to know that it’s the fastest (and safest) way to design, deploy and operate enterprise applications.

Purpose

The role of Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’) is to equip organizations with the tooling to place customers at the heart of everything they do to deliver awesome customer experiences by leveraging data and to act on what they learn. 

We bring first mover advantage to enterprises looking to build or grow market disrupting game-changing ideas.  

Faster Prototyping, With Iteration

Encanvas provides a unifying design environment that combines app logic, database design, user tooling and forms all in one tool, so you can try new ideas faster.  It only requires one architect with one set of skills.  Once authored, apps can be continuously improved at very low cost or effort (and with almost no testing overheads).

More Design Possibilities

There’s no limit to the possibilities of design with Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’).  After a decade of deployments, we’ve made sure everything is ‘in the box’ for your next digital platform.

Not Low-Code, But Codeless

Encanvas automates many of the mundane software programming tasks through its design tools.  Removing human coding massively reduces the time taken to test applications and improves design consistency.

Richer (Clever) Data Handling

Whether it’s harvesting data from existing data sources, cleaning and normalizing your data, plotting assets on geo-maps, adding algorithms or producing awesome visualizations, encanvas Secure&Live (‘secure and live’) has what’s needed to maximize the value of your data.

Most Secure

No data is ever held on a local drive using encanvas.  All data processed remains securely on our cloud platform, protected by a variety of industry standard and proprietary mechanisms.  We prevent the possibility of unauthorized users gaining access to data while in transit and at rest.  

Better User Experiences

There’s no need to compromise on the quality of your User Experience with Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’).  Once you’ve designed your template, every form and page honors your design aspirations.

Frequently Asked Questions

You probably have lots of questions. Let’s try to answer some of them.

Why not use my existing technology?

Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’) makes it possible to design best-fit applications across the desk in workshops without coding. It is a COMPREHENSIVE ecosystem – by which we mean, you don’t need to rely on third-party code or resources to achieve the best outcome for your enterprise. (Imagine how frustrating it would be to start using a toolset like encanvas only to find you had to start again using an alternative tool because it doesn’t offer everything you need in the box. That’s the situation we’ve invested the past 18-years helping you to avoid). In our opinion, no other technology supports ‘across the desk coding’ for business model orchestration as efficiently as ENCANVAS does.

Is ENCANVAS Enterprise-Ready?

Absolutely yes. Whether it’s about scaling your business, integrating with large ERP systems, leveraging the latest artificial intelligence algorithms, or keeping data safe, encanvas is designed to serve the needs of large corporations.

How is ENCANVAS deployed?

Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’) is a cloud deployed platform. It resides on the Microsoft .NET framework but is a true cloud ecosystem based on secure containers. That means every client has the option of using our common-to-all Microsoft Azure LIVE WIRE-FRAMING platform, or they can upgrade to a private cloud. If requested, the entire cloud ecosystem can be installed on your own on-premise server or cloud service provider of choice.

How do your software robots harvest data?

Our software robots originated as a platform called Information Flow Designer that we created back in 2004 to simplify the harvesting of data from many organizations operating ‘across the streetworks industry’; using many systems and wanting to bring data together into a new common cloud platform. The software robot agent resides on a remote system and can be programmed to work independently. It’s useful to validate and upload data feeds, or execute local tasks such as screen-scraping, AI algorithm integration or perform key-fill data entry.

What data harvesting and cleansing tooling is supplied as standard?

One of the strengths of Encanvas Secure and Live (‘Secure&Live’) is its incumbent multi-threaded, multi-sourcing technology and code-less data connectors that we use to harvest data from multiple sources. Multi-linking drag-and-drop design tools take every advantage of the supplied data connectors and mean designers can create and publish new data structures for their applications.

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.

Get to know Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Robotic process automation is a type of business process automation technology based on the use of software that mimics the behaviors of humans to process and share data.

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.

Wireframing

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.’

Data Integration

Data Integration is a term used to describe a collection of methods, tools and technologies used to connect more than one data source together, normally for the purpose of sharing, consuming or serving information.

How safe is your enterprise application platform?

Data security means protecting digital data, such as those in a database, from destructive forces and from the unwanted actions of unauthorized users, such as a cyberattack or a data breach.
