How to Simplify Application Usage & Deployment with Microapps

Microapps are playing a key role to unlocking organizational agility. Productivity improvements come from delivering focused experiences streamlining how a user interacts with organizational applications. IT costs are controlled by reducing work required to ship new functionality. Further, existing apps can at times be replaced by microapps, helping to clean up organizational digital clutter—all while enhancing the user experience.

The best way to get started with microapps is to have a consultation with our subject matter experts. We’ll help you understand what the possibilities are with microapps, as well as discuss tradeoffs. We can initiate a limited duration Fastrack innovation cycle where we do the initial implementation then train your team to continue building microapps from a known point of success. Or, if preferred, we can handle the full cycle of development.

Strategic Outlook for 9 Types of Developers in the Digital Era

Traditionally, application development was viewed as an isolated activity, working largely without disturbance from other areas of the company. However, with technology becoming deeply entrenched into every aspect of business, development teams have become an increasingly strategic asset.

Now, modern enterprises are being tasked with building comprehensive digital teams, with each developer bringing unique skills and specialties to the table. How well this team is constructed can play a huge role in the success of a company’s broader digital efforts.

The Business Rules Engine for the Data Economy

The typical enterprise makes millions of recurring, high volume, data-intensive
decisions throughout its day to day operations. Decisions such as:

  • For which of our programs—if any—is the customer eligible?
  • Do we deny or approve the claim, and when is the deadline to make this
    decision?
  • How much of a processing fee are we going to charge for the current
    transaction?
This new paper from Progress describes how Corticon's digital decisioning solutions can automate these complex processes by simplifying how you manage your business rules.
