Entando enables you to thrive in the Capability Economy
Enhance agility and build value by leveraging composable business capabilities in your applications
How Does It Work?
The Entando Platform's composable application lifecycle involves four stages: Create, Curate, Compose, and Consume. This process is not linear but agile and iterative, especially for organizations further along their composability journey.
Creators build new application components and bundle existing code into reusable building blocks, free to choose the technologies that meet their needs.
Curators organize bundles and components to share and reuse across teams and projects. Components can be sourced internally or from the Entando Cloud Hub which offers a selection of pre-built solutions that can be easily integrated into any application.
Composers utilize the curated bundles and components to assemble a seamless and cohesive user experience across a complex application.
End-users interact with the application, consuming its features to perform tasks and achieve their objectives.
What is Platform Architecture?
Entando is a modern, open-source development and runtime platform tailored for Kubernetes providers. It streamlines the process of building, reusing, and assembling applications on Kubernetes. Acting as a bundle orchestrator, Entando simplifies the development, deployment, and management of applications composed of modular bundles. Each bundle represents a self-contained collection of components serving distinct functionalities or services, all coordinated seamlessly by Entando to create cohesive applications.

Low learning curve
With Entando, you employ micro frontends and microservices, compact self-contained reusable components, which can be assembled into a small simple app or a large complex application. This approach allows you to create a highly agile and customizable application, with your choice of framework and technology stack.
Drag-and-drop App Builder
Entando includes a drag-and-drop App Builder UI that makes creating custom pages and layouts for your application easy. The App Builder can be extended with an Entando Platform Capabilities (EPCs) and includes headless tools.
A Bundle is a packaged set of components and resources representing a Business Capability. Entando can deploy Docker-like containers called Bundles, which makes it easy to deploy, manage and scale your application in a cloud environment.
Integration with third-party services
Entando integrates various third-party services, including CMS systems, databases, and authentication systems. This makes it easy to integrate with existing services and systems, and build applications that meet specific business needs.
Open-source with Enterprise support
Entando is an open-source platform; a company can use the Community Edition. Entando provides enterprise support for organizations that require additional assistance with their web application development projects.
Entando is designed to work seamlessly with DevOps tools and practices, making it easy to integrate the Platform into a continuous delivery pipeline.
Entando is built using cloud-native technologies, making it easy to deploy and manage composable applications on cloud platforms like AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, or on-premise platforms like Openshift, Tanzu, and Rancher.
