3. Centralisation of tools
Rapid application development also centralises all tools and apps on one central platform. “Many companies struggle to keep track of all the applications, SaaS and spreadsheets employees use to manage their tasks. The IT department is often understaffed or has no specific budget to cater to all technical issues, leading employees to search for third-party solutions – potentially opening the door to major security risks.”
With tools like Mendix, Zudy and Power Apps, applications are built and collected on the same central platform. Not only does this provide users with a detailed overview, it also reduces security risks, a strategy known as ‘keeping the core clean’. Moreover, Mendix guarantees full transparency, enabling the IT department to review all the development happening on the RAD platform.
With Mendix on top of the SAP Cloud Platform, users can integrate SAP data into their applications as well. This ensures user friendliness, safety and excellent performance. It is a full package, because the SAP Cloud Platform also allows access to innovative services like RPA and machine learning.
