Model First Development
Fdata’s “Model First” approach ensures your business requirements are captured and prototyped first. Changes to requirements can be made in the Model and immediately reflected within the application, without any need for redevelopment. In an ever-changing business world, your application can adapt without the need of recoding – a saving of time and effort and a reduction in application errors.
Use Framework to enable your businesses to accelerate the development of enterprise data management applications by 50-80% compared with traditional development approaches.
How do you develop applications 50-80% faster?
Create the Model
By first defining the entities, attributes and relationships in a UML model all aspects of the data can be defined before any development is done. This allows the definition of your data to drive your application development.
Security can be implemented from the start, not added as an afterthought. All entities and fields can have a group or user security permission, allowing only those users with permissions the ability to view and modify data.
Pilot the Application
With the model in place, the application can now be created and deployed using Framework. It is just a matter of deploying the database, starting up the server and securely logging into the application.
Using your application users can now review the data fields and relationships before any code is even written. Any changes they want to make can be done within the model and the application recreated with no need for any code or database redevelopment.
This keeps the business users engaged in the development process, they can work with the development team and can see the changes to the model in near real time. This ensures that the model meets the business needs before any coding is done.
Customize the Screens / Integration with Legacy Systems
Fdata’s Framework allows for each of the data entry screens to be easily customized by a Java developer. Data entry fields can be arranged in a way that best supports the business users.
- validate data as it is entered into a field
- to create custom buttons to reach outside of the application to legacy systems for gathering additional information
The final step is to deploy the application to the enterprise. The database is deployed and the server started.
