5 Apps You Can Build With Entando

Tuesday, July 14, 2020 - Entando

Great user experiences are vital to the success of your organization. They keep customers coming back. They increase the job satisfaction and efficiency of employees who use internal systems to get their jobs done. 

By building apps with micro frontends and deploying them in containers on Kubernetes, enterprises can create better user experiences more efficiently and effectively, updating iteratively and deploying independently. 

These apps are also resilient and resource conscious, as you can scale up and down the parts of your site that are experiencing peak traffic, optimizing your infrastructural usage while ensuring that your app performance is reliably high. 

While developing with micro frontends on Kubernetes is a methodology with a certain level of complexity, a micro frontend platform like Entando provides developers with tools to rapidly build, design, and assemble applications from micro frontends, microservices, and web content and deploy them in linux containers. 

Here are 5 kinds of apps you can build using Entando.

1. Process-Driven Apps

Whether you're onboarding a new customer, managing a medical checkup, processing an order flow, or maintaining case management, process automation is an important investment in increasing productivity while minimizing human error. 

Entando helps you automate your business workflows, which simplifies approval processes for managers and reduces the time an important task remains pending in review. Streamline your case management with Entando working on top of your choice of backend engine, such as Red Hat PAM.

2. Progressive Web Apps

With Entando, you can take a truly mobile-first approach to UX by building progressive web apps, which possess many of the features of a native mobile app while being accessible through a web browser. 

These apps have a dynamic experience across devices, and can even offer many native app features such as fast load times, offline support, push notifications, and app-like look and feel.

3. Portals With User-Based Content And Access

With Entando Identity Management System (built on Keycloak), you can create applications with various roles and tailor security and authentication to the unique requirements of your organization. For example, if you are building a portal for an educational institution, you can tailor content and access around roles like student, instructor, and administrator, enabling each role to access important information and communicate effectively, maintaining a seamless experience.

4. IoT Dashboards & Data Aggregation

With Entando, you can build apps that provide a visual dashboard of actionable data pulled from IoT devices.

To illustrate what we mean, think about a large office building with 40 floors. On each floor, there are several restrooms, which means that the building houses literally hundreds of them. Each restroom is equipped with smart dispensers for soap and paper towels. Rather than spending countless man hours having custodial employees constantly check each floor’s restrooms to see if they are low on paper towels or hand soap, imagine being able to look at a dashboard and see the exact levels of every dispenser on every single floor. 

With Entando, you can do just that. Our platform enables you to build a dashboard of data aggregation from your IoT devices, so that you can provide better customer service and support.

5. Apps With Consistent UX

The benefit of using Entando’s micro frontend platform is that the development time for every successive app will decrease, and you will also increase standardization. This is particularly important for enterprise leaders who are managing dozens or even hundreds of applications across the organization. 

With the Entando Component Generator (built on JHipster), you can quickly create micro frontends in a standardized way, and then easily assemble them into a single app. You can also reuse those components across projects via the Entando Component Repository. This helps you make sure that your apps have consistent UX.

Build better apps faster with Entando.

When release cycles take months instead of weeks, your business is left unable to deliver modern online experiences. Development bottlenecks slow your ability to make application updates, keeping you from iterating and innovating. And outdated or clunky UX keeps you from winning customers over and retaining them.

So that’s why we created a platform to help you get your ideas to market faster.

Entando is the leading micro frontend platform for building enterprise web apps on Kubernetes. We want to change the way enterprises think about building their apps, sites, and portals in order to innovate more quickly.

With Entando, you can quickly create micro frontends using the Entando Component Generator built on JHipster and assemble them onto a single page with the Entando App Builder. Then reuse UI/UX components across multiple projects via the Entando Component Repository, saving money and increasing development speed while also standardizing your UX and development process. 

With Entando, you also have the ability to scale quickly and effectively with Entando’s custom Kubernetes operator, automating the deployment of scalable, self-healing applications--including progressive web apps.
