While AgilePoint NX’s award winning user interface makes it quick and easy to build forms, workflows, and almost any kind of business app, it’s architecture is uniquely suited for the constantly evolving requirements of the IoT.
With the Internet of Things (IoT), requirements for any given app could change any number of times a day. Thousands—even millions—of sensors monitor activity and push data to processing hubs that index it, synthesise it, and feed it back to the machines running apps. These need to be dynamically reconfigured based on this river of constantly changing business information.
Hand coded apps—as well as apps built on some RAD platforms—have baked-in functionality. Modifying one of these baked-hard-as-a biscuit apps typically requires unloading from memory, changing the code, compiling, linking and executing and then loading it back into memory. It will then need to be re-synced with potentially thousands of sub-processes. The sheer weight of the machinery involved in this process makes baked apps unsuitable for the constantly evolving requirements of IoT.
Stop dreaming, start building your business application. Try AgilePoint NX today. Forrester Research named AgilePoint NX one of the top five low-code application as a service platforms across all segments. Find out why with a FREE 30-day trial.
AgilePoint NX utilises a true model-driven architecture, meaning that the model can be modified at run time – either manually or via feedback loops of fresh data. The underlying application code is correspondingly modified. In other words, AgilePoint NX apps are continuously variable.
Exclusive to AgilePoint is a stateless process engine that loads individual parts of an application model as they are required, then unloads them a few milliseconds later. This approach scales with the needs of IoT. It also means that system failures will virtually never result in lost data and orphaned sub-processes.
