Summary: Business Process Management Software comes in all shapes and sizes. How do you know which option is right for your business? What should you be aware of before licensing a BPM tool? In this article, we take a deep dive into the different areas you should look at in any BPM system.
Do you remember back when cloud computing was a new trend? Back then, most businesses ran their software on-premise. Cloud computing was viewed as a security risk and many doubted whether or not it would ever see mass adoption.
Fast forward to the present and cloud computing has most definitely experienced mass adoption. Most businesses these days use multiple cloud services/applications in their day-to-day operations.
In fact, businesses rely so heavily on cloud apps and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) they now face a growing challenge: Their data resides in multiple places. How can they pull data from their disparate cloud apps into a single place for reporting and analytics?
It’s easier than you might think. We just created a video that shows you how quickly you can integrate cloud data (from multiple sources) into a single dashboard using the m-Power Development Platform. In this video, we show you how to:
– pull data out of cloud applications (using web services),
– create web apps and reports over that data,
– and combine those apps and reports into a dashboard.

In our last article, we explored some big advantages of web APIs. From improving the customer experience to streamlining processes, web services and APIs truly hold plenty of potential.
The big questions: If your business isn’t using web services or APIs right now, where do you start? How do you create them? How long does it take?
We just created a video that answers these questions and goes through the whole process using the m-Power Development Platform. In this video, we walk you through the creation of a RESTful API and even set up a basic web app to consume the data. You might be surprised by how easy it can be. You can watch the video below.
What’s the difference between traditional business intelligence and actionable business intelligence? Let’s break down each one:
Traditional BI: Traditional BI and reporting applications deliver data in an easily consumable format. They display key business metrics using charts, graphs, and tables. If done correctly, traditional BI and reporting apps deliver data that decision-makers need to take action.
Actionable BI: Actionable BI takes things a step further. It offers everything that traditional BI offers with one key difference: It lets you take action on your data from within the application. It lets users analyze their data, update data, and trigger workflows. Rather than simply displaying data, actionable business intelligence also lets you do something about it.
If you think about it, this is incredibly useful in all types of situations. Just imagine what you can do with a report or dashboard that also lets you take action on your data and trigger workflows. The possibilities are truly endless.
The big question: How do you create an actionable BI application? Is it more complex than a traditional BI app?
We just created a video that walks you through the whole process using the m-Power Development Platform. You might be surprised by how easy it can be. You can watch the video below.
Summary: These days, choosing the right low-code tool can be confusing. Since each one has differing features and goals, comparing your options is becoming more and more difficult. How can you avoid surprises or “gotchas” when selecting a tool? How can you find the right low-code tool for your business? In this article, we explore 10 critical features to look for in any low-code tool.
These days, every business wants to improve productivity. For many, the answer lies right under their nose. While they may not realize it, they’re wasting hours of time every week completing manual tasks that could (and should) be automated.
What types of business processes are ripe for automation? Here are a few of the most common processes that you can automate:
– Invoice processing
– Employee onboarding
– Approval processes
– Support ticket applications
– And much, much more.
How can you quickly automate processes like these? We just released a video that walks you through a simple workflow automation process in just 7 minutes. While we demonstrate a support ticket application workflow, the same process can be used for any type of workflow process. You can watch the video here:
Summary: With the move towards a remote work environment, web application development became increasingly important. Will this demand for web apps slow down in the coming year? What can we expect for 2021? How will web application development evolve and what areas should you focus on? In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the biggest web app dev trends to monitor in the coming year.
I’m happy to announce that we’ve recently released a revamped front-end for our m-Power Development Platform! The result: Improved speed and usability. For those unfamiliar, m-Power is a low-code application development platform that lets anyone build enterprise web applications without coding. It creates all types of custom web applications such as report-writing, BI, executive dashboards, e-commerce, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.
With this release, we redesigned and rebuilt m-Power’s front-end from the ground up. The main goals of the project: Improve speed, keep pace with current trends, and incorporate new technologies into the interface.
