Red Hat announced new end-to-end Kubernetes-native decision management capabilities as part of the latest release of Red Hat Process Automation.
The resulting “simple building block” can be looked at as a low-code/no-code add-on that makes it extremely easy for a website operator to add new functionality to a website. With little or no coding website operators simply copy and paste a few lines of code into their site and instantly have the application built by the developer live on their site.
The SimplicityBlocks interface allows a developer to easily configure a launcher’s (the optional call-to-action button to launch the widget) and widget’s appearance on its host page with items such as size, color, animations, and delays. Other options give the developer control as to what domains can use the widget and they can also configure custom attributes which a website operator can use to customize the widget for their use.
Use cases for the product include distributing universally embeddable web widgets for others to plug into their websites, micro frontend / micro app integration (allowing diverse technologies to be integrated into a single website), simplified form integration with data capture and unique call-to-action implementations and content syndication. Since the product is delivered as a cloud application it also allows for real-time changes to be made to blocks that are already installed and deployed. This makes it usable for call-to-action A/B testing.
