Choosing Your First Codeless Project

The extreme flexibility of Unqork’s platform lets you start your codeless journey with any project that can deliver the most significant ROI.

For organizations just starting out with codeless application development, the Unqork platform provides a huge bonus right from the start. Thanks to the platform’s extreme flexibility, you can begin with any project that you believe has the most significant return on investment (ROI)—vital in building the kind of momentum that enterprise digital transformation requires. 

And because application building is entirely visual and composable with Unqork—and at least 3X faster than using a traditional approach—you can start demonstrating value far faster than you would with a traditional code, or even low-code, approach. Build your first proof-of-concept (PoC) in a matter of days, and a minimum viable product (MVP) customized for the unique needs of your business in a matter of weeks. 

Whatever project you choose, you will never have to make a single change to the underlying code in new, legacy, or third-party systems, no matter how complex and sprawling your ecosystem is.  You don’t even have to invest time in researching the nitty gritty of any underlying code. 

Instead, you can choose your first project (and all your future projects) based on business outcomes. 

To the starting gate faster

Once you’ve chosen the right project, Unqork’s platform dramatically reduces the work required before you actually start executing. With Unqork, businesses “no longer have to spend months and months selecting tools, building bespoke integrations, or wrangling underlying legacy code just to get to a minimal viable product (MVP),” write Harvinder Bhatia and Raj Konduru, partners at KPMG. 

And developers—we calls them Creators—don’t have to learn a proprietary language. In fact, they don’t have to learn any coding language at all, because development is entirely visual. 

This may sound impossible—a violation of the fundamental laws of enterprise application development. But it is not only possible, businesses are already making it happen. Codeless is that much of a game-changer. 

“Codeless Architecture is one of those technology disruptors that’s going to impact a lot of folks. Successful CIOs are no longer going to worry about inevitable technology transitions and evolutions,” adds Donald Burgess, Deputy CIO, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

In our experience, these are the three use cases that have delivered outsized ROI for our customers: 

  • Onboarding: Connect on-brand customer experiences with any and all underlying systems in your organization’s ecosystem. Create an integrated ecosystem with connected systems, data, and third-party solutions in scalable, reusable ways. Develop fully digital & mobile-friendly onboarding experiences accessible to clients, third-party agents, and operations. 

  • Operations automation: Organize and orchestrate your business processes for exception management, operations oversight, securities operations, and case management. Develop automated workflows and drive process optimization to create, connect, and automate complex, customized solutions—no matter how common or niche. Build at speed with security and confidence. 

  • Portals & self-servicing: Develop customer-facing portals with robust self-service functionality for account servicing and case management. Create enhanced digital experiences that deliver compelling, on-brand experiences for all internal and external end-users.

The truth is, you don’t have to limit yourself as you choose your first project. Codeless is all about the art of the possible. In the meantime, here is a longer list of integration, orchestration, and presentation capabilities that Unqork is especially well-equipped to handle, and that you can bring together in the way that best fits your business. 

  • Internal workflows (orchestration): Quickly build GUIs for legacy and new internal services. Stitch them together with business logic, and add RBAC to optimize business processes between teams.

  • Prototyping (orchestration): Create high-fidelity prototypes faster than traditional approaches, while enabling close collaboration between your business and tech teams.

  • Legacy “front doors” (integration & presentation): Iteratively augment and integrate with legacy systems, and execute data validations to ensure data hygiene, while modernizing your legacy systems. 

  • Headless applications (integration & orchestration): Build ETL applications and headless applications for data ingestion, validation, and migration. 

  • External workflows (orchestration & presentation): Create secure, multi-user workflows and enhanced digital experiences for customer-facing use cases (e.g. onboarding).

  • Building APIs (integration): Rapidly build secure, business-critical RESTful APIs or API Gateways to create a more integrated application ecosystem.

  • New product frameworks (orchestration): Quickly build a reusable application framework for launching new products. 

  • ODBC database connections (integration): Our marketplace partner CDATA supports universal ODBC data connectivity. 

  • Mobile Applications (presentation): Unqork fully supports mobile many ways out of the box. See Unqork’s Hybrid Mobile Apps.
