Have you ever created an application only to find it doesn’t work?
Sounds crass doesn’t it. The fact is that most manually programmed applications have errors in them. But modern codeless applications design environments like Encanvas overcome the majority of programming ‘hick-ups’ by auto-generating the code that underpins authored applications through the use of drag-and-drop, point-and-click and wizard based interfaces. That means almost no testing, tuning or re-working costs for business IT projects.
This is important to the software and data integration industry that has a pretty sour track-record of project delivery. The article ‘Why Your IT Project May Be Riskier Than You Think’ by HBR (November 2011), that followed a survey of 1,471 IT projects with an average spend of $167m, found that:
- The average overrun was 27%
- One in six of the projects studied was a black swan, with a cost overrun of 200%.
- Almost 70% of black swan projects also overrun their schedules.
Thankfully, Encanvas now overcomes this problem area too with its new real-time data diagnostics technology.
When applications are published to the cloud, Encanvas’s new visual diagnostic mode allows designers to review the data connections employed in applications using an innovative visual referencing system.
Each field is audited for its data connections and the results are presented on the screen.
Full details of connections are presented when clicking on the associated icon. Using the live data diagnostic features of Encanvas removes the last major hurdle in applications engineering for authors of business applications.
