Sandeep Raut, in his CIO Watercooler article , User Experience Design – a key to Digital Transformation, published 6th September 2018, writes “A UX design can supercharge productivity, add immense value to customer interactions, and help employees love their jobs. He goes on to say “Overall UX design should have short navigation steps so users require very few clicks to get the information they want. It should be based on responsive web designs so applications maintain full functionality, usability and appeal on different browsers and screens from desktop to laptops to tablets to smartphones.”

Successful digital transformation requires efficient mobile app user adoption, and that requires an effective mobile user experience. The ViziApps’ platform focuses on the creation and management of responsive mobile business process apps with optimal workflow and simple and efficient UX navigation. Using ViziApps LogicBuilder™, you can rapidly create custom mobile workflow apps with branded UX, optimal UX navigation, and use of mobile device features, all with no code. These LogicBuilder Functions enable Citizen Developers, IT Professionals, and Solution Providers to rapidly create robust and even complex Mobile First business process and workflow apps using visual drag ‘n drop techniques, not coding. What’s delivered to the end user is a simple UI designed to focus the user on the task at hand, providing them with just the information and options they need to take next-step actions via the device in their hands.

ViziApps helps speed Digital Transformation. ViziApps helps your mobile employees love their jobs.
We’ve been busy here at ViziApps. On December 11, 2018, we announced the release of ViziApps Studio 5.0 – Powered by LogicBuilder (read blog post). Our focus in the December 11 announcement was on LogicBuilder – the brains behind ViziApps no-code mobile app logic development, but there is more to the ViziApps 5.0 release.

ViziApps Studio 5.0 now comes with a significant new user interface update, based on customer feedback. Studio 5.0 offers all new button icons, a refined color design, and improved tool panel layout.

Over the years, I’ve worked with (and developed) a number of rapid application development (RAD) and low-code tools targeting development for desktop, Web browser, embedded device, and mobile device applications. Although these tools simplified developing the “shell” of the application, their required integration with databases and other data sources was complex and time consuming.

Data Sources As I continue to dig into ViziApps® Studio to learn its ins-and-outs by developing increasingly complex mobile apps, I’ve come to appreciate how easy it is to create connections to a wide assortment of data sources — from traditional SQL databases (both cloud-based and on-premises) to cloud-based platforms including Quick Base® to Google spreadsheets to IoT data sources like ThingWorx®. Figure 1 shows the ViziApps Studio pull down menu for supported data sources; and within the SQL Database category, there are nine supported SQL databases, as shown in Figure 2.
