Apps-as-a-Service – Cost-effective. Flexible. Digital.
Disruption and digitization: bus networks without their own buses, cab services without cabs, TÜVs without their own inspectors, transport and logistics without their own drivers, craft services without their own craftsmen: disruptive business models are currently revolutionizing SMEs and corporations. The good news is that in many cases, simple digitization alone is enough to achieve significant business advantages. Through simplified customer dialog, through optimized processes, through digital integration of external partners. In almost all cases, new apps are needed. On the mobile device, the desktop or via the web. But how?
Make or buy: The question arises very early on: Do we have to program something ourselves? Does a ready-made IT solution on the market fit our requirements ? How does it all fit into our IT landscape ? The problem: Often “make” is too expensive and takes too long, and the right solution for “buy” is hard to find.
The third way: corporate apps-as-a-service, (CaaS) are more cost-effective and flexible in use. In the conception phase, the new processes, content and information paths are defined: Process experts of the company then assemble their own company apps with just a few clicks. Via browser, without programming and in the shortest possible time. An app launcher is installed on each employee’s device, and at the touch of a button the company apps are available online and offline worldwide in seconds. From the cloud or from the company server.
