Ways to Innovate with Entando
BPM/Process Automation Modernization
Many BPM applications need to move to cloud-native, Kubernetes deployments but are unable to move due to risks, cost, or complexity. Entando provides an EXPERIENCE OVERLAY technology, allowing developers to modernize the user experience while tying into existing API’s and BPM platforms. This provides fast, low cost, low risk improvements to UX and frontend/backend separation (STRANGLER FIG PATTERN) simplifying the update of the backend over time.
Applications that provide specific ROLE OR ATTRIBUTE BASED content are often called Portals. Micro Portals are a portal subclassification that are specifically targeting a subset of users (e.g., partners), or a limited time of operation (a specific project team), or a very focused set of features (employee onboarding). Entando allows enterprises to rapidly compose these applications with reusable components assembled using a low code APP BUILDER that accesses a library of components in a central ENTANDO HUB.
Dashboards / Process Control
IoT and BPM applications often provide an application interface that interfaces to multiple processes and devices. Entando provides enterprises a PLATFORM TO UNIFY these disparate systems into a single dashboard and control system. Entando simplifies the development, expansion, and maintenance of the multiple features that are available in these applications. The MODULAR aspect of developing with Entando allows many enterprises to accelerate MVP’s and to add additional features over time, far more easily vs traditional development.
Customer Experience Hubs
Enterprises need to be able to react quickly to market needs or competitive threats and an APPLICATION COMPOSITION PLATFORM enables companies to be more resilient to change. Applications are built from components or Packaged Business Capabilities that can be reused / standardized across multiple applications. Entando allows enterprises to rapidly build, customize, or reuse these components and PBCs to compose applications in a modular, modern context on Kubernetes.
Application Governance / Quality Control for Kubernetes
A benefit of composing applications from components is the ability to better enforce quality and application governance. Many customers implement a centralized ENTANDO HUB of component and packaged business components and enforce governance on all code delivered into that Hub and the associated Kubernetes pipelines.
