While many organizations have started adopting digital transformation as a growth strategy, many do not succeed in their first few attempts. How, then, can you lead your organization through an effective transformation?
According to Gartner, businesses today must rethink the customer experience, embrace digital business, and redefine business models and processes to remain competitive. Also noted by Gartner, one of the ways to succeed in digital transformation is through technology. While technology covers a wide variety of areas, today our focus is on the importance of custom applications in the transformation journey.
Custom applications are prevalent in most agile and thriving companies. Since no two businesses are identical, organizations often require custom solutions to meet their unique challenges, processes, and goals. Off-the-shelf software doesn’t always fit the bill, and can end up being more costly to customize and roll out in the long run. The good news is that even companies with the most limited resources and budgets can succeed in digital transformation by creating custom applications using emerging technologies and platforms available today.
Since its founding in 2000, Caspio has been a proven low-code application platform that reduces time-to-market by a factor of 10 compared to traditional programming methods. Caspio’s visual development tools simplify the complexities of building and operating custom applications – database design, application logic and user experience, interface creation, data workflows, user management, infrastructure, security policies, and more.
Caspio’s low-code approach helps you achieve digital transformation in several ways:
- Address user experience shortcomings with custom-built interfaces
- Digitize and automate manual business processes
- Rapidly design, prototype, and launch new ideas
- Improve operations and productivity based on real-time data sharing and workflows
Today, thousands of Caspio customers from all industries experience immediate results using a low-code platform for their custom application development. For example, the City of Thousand Oaks transformed their paper-based Green Business Certification Program into a fully-automated cloud application and won the “Best of California Award” from the Center for Digital Government.
“Caspio was easy-to-use, affordable, and better suited to our needs than any other alternative. It allowed for easy customization on a reliable platform,” said Justin Baker, Information Technology Technician at the City of Thousand Oaks. Read the case study to learn more.
