The Solution: Enterprise Application Services Engine: EASE
EASE combines the flexibility of custom software with the simplicity of packaged applications. Through configuration, this pre-built software package adapts and morphs into any internal or external facing enterprise application. Meta Application software represents an off-the-shelf, cross-industry enterprise application that can deliver ultimate flexibility to the customer through fully customized forms and fully customized workflows at the speed and cost of packaged applications.
Unlike traditional enterprise applications, EASE has a single source code base and a single executable, which, using entirely different sets of configured user interfaces, data models, workflows, and business logic can be deployed to serve multiple functions in multiple industries:
How does EASE software work?
Unlike typical application software that is made up of application specific UI, business logic, and data elements, EASE software is designed to be cross-industry software that is capable of creating a new application through configuration, and providing a run-time environment to operate a configured application. Essentially, EASE has an application designer tool, an application development-time services engine, an application deployment services engine, an application run-time services engine, an application run-time data-store, an external interface services bus, and multiple run-time application client modules for native Windows, native iOS, native Android, and web deployments, that all work together in a single EASE package, along with all the admin tools and plumbing needed to operate and maintain an application.
The following are the key features of Meta Application software:
All in all, the Meta Application software is a completely different category of software compared to both custom and pre-packaged application software.
The following chart compares the feature and benefits of custom applications, packaged applications and Meta application.
In summary, the Meta Application combines the best of both the custom application software and packaged application software to present a very compelling, flexible new business model to design and deploy sophisticated enterprise applications across multiple industries.
