Automated Development: Building Custom Apps for Digital Transformation on a Tight Budget & Timeline
Digital transformation is the need of the hour – companies across industries are grappling with challenges to digitally transform their operations to enhance customer experience and save on costs. However, despite companies investing a large amount of capital and resources, most digital transformation initiatives don’t meet the desired results. Additionally, there are mid-sized companies who are victims of the ‘digital divide’, where companies are operating at a shoestring budget and simply cannot afford enterprise solutions.
Furthermore, the ongoing pandemic has provided the impetus to the need for digital transformation. IT departments of companies are working with skeletal workforces to deliver applications to business customers. Operating with a heavy backlog, most companies are looking at alternative ways to build custom applications with a constrained budget and timelines.
Automated Application Development
For years now, teams have been striving to automate individual development tasks to achieve faster development while simultaneously incorporating quality into every step. With increasing automation in custom app development could rely heavily on automating SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) depending on the nature of your product and where you are in the cycle.
Understandably, the traditional approaches to building software from scratch are long-drawn and risky. Automated software development platforms like Xamun seek to change all of this through visual software development powered by automation. Its automated software development platform powered by helps companies undergoing a digital transformation as well as start-ups build fully functional, market-ready, and high-quality software in weeks. Xamun is ideal for projects seeking to build customer- or external-facing custom web and mobile software.
How does automated software development work?
Automated software development platforms like Xamun will help you create the basic structure of your software instantaneously, so you can focus on customization and fine-tuning. Automated software development platforms are NOT low-code platforms, it’s visual development platforms powered by automation.
Below are the steps on how one can visually build mobile and web applications on automated development platforms.
Design Mobile and Web UI- Build app screens using various design elements such as images, buttons, text fields, and other interactive components.
Set User Flows- Arrange custom and prebuilt mobile or web screens to map out what the user journey will be like using your software.
Generate Front-End Web & Mobile - Automatically generate and export the underlying HTML codes and Flutter UI codes based on the Figma design.
Build & Map Out Data Models - Design the data models that power your app using a visual entity editor. The editor automatically generates APIs and documentation as you build.
Component Library- Draw from a growing library of common web & mobile components such as catalogs, shopping carts, etc.
Integrated Development Automation- Generate code base for APIs, Security Token Service Identity Server, Angular Framework Single Page Application.
Deploy in Sandbox & Test- The resulting web or mobile application will be deployed in a test environment before it goes live in production.
Code Release & Cloud Deployment - The application will then be released in Azure DevOps or GitHub, and you can then deploy it in your choice of the cloud platform.
