Software AG announced the expansion of its Digital Business Platform with new application development software, called webMethods Dynamic Apps, that enables companies to more quickly create a wide range of customer engagement applications, integrate them seamlessly with other systems and manage and optimize their performance.
Wolfram Jost, CTO, Software AG, noted: “In the digital age, a critical differentiator for any company is its ability to quickly build customer and employee facing applications that are engaging, scale for any scenario, and can be used on any device – all while avoiding unforeseen IT requirements that can add cost, time and complexity.”
Dynamic Apps can help organizations simplify and speed up customer onboarding, improve customer service and increase the productivity of the workforce. Notably, developers can use webMethods Dynamic Apps to create simple apps quickly and easily. However, as a developer’s needs grow and possibly become more complex, they can continue to use the same platform – webMethods Dynamic Apps – to scale and build more complex apps seamlessly.
Wolfram Jost continued: “The webMethods Dynamic Apps Platform will help speed up and simplify collaboration between business and IT departments, enabling subject matter experts to easily create productivity apps and cooperate with IT developers in order to introduce enterprise-grade applications faster.”
The webMethods Dynamic Apps Platform supports different work patterns – from full work automation to dynamic case management – by providing comprehensive business process, workflow, business rules and case management capabilities. The Dynamic Apps platform enables both IT developers and subject matter experts to build process-driven and case management applications.
The webMethods Dynamic Apps Platform comprises a comprehensive set of capabilities including UI development tools, dynamic processes and a rules engine, case collaboration, a prebuilt native mobile app with push notification and offline work functionality, task expert recommendations, collaboration features, ad hoc reporting, as well as dashboarding and real-time analytics.
The webMethods Dynamic Apps Platform is a core module of Software AG’s Digital Business Platform, an integrated set of powerful technologies, capabilities and methodologies for managing a digital transformation and for reshaping business designs that enable an enterprise to be more data-driven, customer-obsessed, hyper-connected and super-agile. The Digital Business Platform is offered in the cloud, as a service, on premise, or in a hybrid configuration.
