Pegasystems has released a centralized dashboard called Enterprise Low-Code Factory. Organisations can use the dashboard to quickly and easily build business software in accordance with organisational standards.

The Enterprise Low-Code Factory enables organizations to create and build their own community of developers. All this without compromising the quality of the software, consistency or laws and regulations.

Low code

Low code development requires little or no experience with coding. A method that is growing in popularity due to the enormous demand for software solutions. One danger is that creators of low code may unconsciously cause IT-related problems, such as security problems and gaps in software updates. Moreover, if there is insufficient knowledge, there is also a chance of unnecessary duplication of work and the facilitation of organisational silos.

In the absence of a safety net to prevent IT chaos, it can therefore be difficult for large organisations to effectively implement low code development. Despite the fact that the implementation of a low code strategy can be seen as sustainable.

Low-Code Factory enables organizations to let employees build the app they need themselves, with the assurance that these apps are developed qualitatively and consistently. Something that ensures close cooperation between organisation and IT, faster time-to-value and lower development costs.

Pega Platform

The new solution combines a number of important elements in a central dashboard. Based on Pega Platform, Factory makes low code more accessible to more people within the organization and allows users to build, deploy, update and modify apps based on pre-defined templates, regardless of their experience. The internal cooperation with various parties ensures a transparent, intuitive and seamless process with a continuous flow of feedback.

The dashboard also offers quality and compliance. Creators click the Request to Build button to generate a simple business case for the designated management team, which manages all options related to the app. Think of giving approval about releasing an app, adding specific features to an app and determining whether an app is already ready for use in the organization. It is also possible to indicate who the users of the app are and who is entitled to make changes to it.

Pega Academy

From Pega Academy relevant courses can be followed on how to build an app. It is also possible to make use of video manuals, information documents and articles from other users, among other things.

Enterprise Low-Code Factory comprises three decades of experience in model-driven application development. This allows low code application development to be rolled out throughout the organisation. Everyone has the potential to become a developer within their own organisation and to create innovative applications. At the same time, IT managers can rely on the necessary balance between control and collaboration. All this thanks to streamlined governance processes, says Don Schuerman, CTO and vice president of product marketing at Pegasystems.

Enterprise Low-Code Factory is expected to be available by the end of Q3 2019.
