LOW-CODE/NO-CODE DEVELOPMENT

What is low-code/no-code development?

Low-code enhances productivity for a diverse range of users within an organization. This involves an intuitive drag-and-drop interface for building data pipelines or mobile user interfaces, as well as workflow, integration, and data visualization.

Customization of this experience can be achieved through coding paradigms, which extend the platform using native JavaScript, Java, or proprietary scripting or meta-language capabilities that handle configuration and customization.

First Transit, Inc., now a part of TransDev, is North America’s largest private-sector provider of mobility solutions, moving more than 300 million passengers annually. The company provides consulting, management, and operation for more than 300 locations in 41 states, Puerto Rico, and four Canadian provinces. Its clients include transit authorities, states, municipalities, universities, and private companies.

Problem
First Transit needed to generate custom reports to support business objectives without using expensive developers and contractors. The client wanted to empower business users to create apps to access data and reports on demand without involving IT.

CBTS solution
CBTS designed a secure Microsoft Power Platform Framework to make app development easier, ensure governance, and empower “citizen developers.” CBTS established proper controls and a Center of Excellence, allowing no-code/low-code development to obtain data and reports without risking security.

Outcome
First Transit has the framework, processes, and policies to enable Power Platform application development. Updated security, monitoring, alerts, and automated policies allow the client to drive platform adoption without being restrictive.

Veritiv is a full-service provider of packaging and facility supply products, services, and solutions. Additionally, the company
provides print and publishing products, as well as logistics and supply chain management solutions.

Problem
Veritiv had purchase orders coming in from various systems without a standard format. This process led to a manual, inefficient process where employees had to open the purchase order and key in the data from the PDF into the internal system.

CBTS solution
After in-depth client consultations, CBTS developers recommended a new system build with Microsoft Power Apps. Using the AI builder from the Power Platform, CBTS built an automated PO processing system and an AI bot to extract the necessary information from the purchase orders. An extendable and robust self-healing framework ensured the files were distributed to the bot appropriately. The bot would extract the required information and build it into a format their ERP understands, then hand it over to the ERP.

Outcome
With Power Apps, CBTS was able to complete this project within eight weeks when custom development could have taken 8-12 months. Analytics found the bot had a 96% success rate when filtering data. The remaining 4% are now sent as alerts to the backend team that manages the new system. Because this was an entirely new system and platform, CBTS helped train Veritiv on how the platform works and how to operate it.

CBTS is committed to providing advanced security technologies and managed services to support a low-code/no-code application environment with ongoing 24×7 monitoring and support.
