Progress Helps Akioma Enable Citizen Developers

Posted on March 13, 2014 0 Comments

AkiomaProgress partner Akioma relies on the Progress Pacific platform to empower its customers to become more effective citizen developers by replacing intricate coding requirements with a drag & drop business rules system.

Akioma works with companies who sell complex products and services in unique, multi-step deals such as manufacturers of custom-engineered equipment. Due to this complexity, they require a CRM system that enables them to quote and deliver proposals with thousands of sub-orders, possibilities and contingencies.

When they created a new CRM system, Akioma wanted to integrate a business rules management system (BRMS) that would reduce the need to traditionally code individual changes by 50-60%. By utilizing the Progress Corticon business rules management system within the Progress Pacific platform, Akioma was able to replace nearly 100% of the business rules coding required in the final application, slashing development lead times from between four and six weeks to just a few days.

As founder and managing director at Akioma, Mike Liewehr, explains it, “Quicker development is great but the most exciting thing that has been enabled by the Progress Pacific platform is the ability to turn our customers into citizen developers. Removing huge swathes of code with simple drag and drop rules puts the power in the hands of the business experts.”
