Business as a Platform
Platform businesses reshape industries by dramatically improving the economics of integration and service delivery. You can participate in a platform economy by exposing capabilities via APIs and adopting partners’ platforms. But to lead, digital business leaders must build services that customers and suppliers embed into their operations’ ~Forrester Research
With Platform and connecting enterprise a lot can be done such as
- Automate operations using a digital automation platform that considers the whole customer journey.
- Use service-oriented architectural concepts to design integration-friendly interfaces and services for processes and content. To integrate internal and external processes, provide these interfaces as secure and authentication-based APIs.
- Deploy a low-code digital automation platform to implement agile process management at the corporate level.
- Deploy artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML) and intelligent rules management systems to increase decision-making flexibility.
- Implement straight-through processing to achieve real-time services through automated end-to-end transactions.
- Contextual content services may be used to manage the whole lifecycle of any type of content (documents or media) and seamlessly integrate into a process automation framework.
- Integrate external interfaces into your digital automation platform to implement omnichannel and cross-channel processes and achieve multi-experience engagement.
That is exactly what Newgen has done. Newgen’s low code digital automation platform integrates various capabilities needed to build a connected enterprise – through its flagship products in intelligent process automation (BPM), contextual content services (ECM), and omnichannel customer engagement (CCM). On one hand, platform helps transform experiences by bridging (process, content, and communication) silos in organization. On the other hand, it offers the agility for sustainable and continuous improvement, thereby future-proofing enterprise. What’s more, is its architectural support for integration and innovation enables to leverage cutting-edge capabilities to stay ahead of the curve. Such capabilities include mobility, social, analytics, cloud, machine learning, robotic process automation, blockchain, and artificial intelligence.
Why Low Code? Why Newgen?
Business needs must be translated into applications, which is a time-consuming and difficult process. As a result, despite the best intentions and efforts of IT teams, a broad range of pressing, even critical, business demands frequently go unfilled. The impedance arises as a result of businesses’ traditional practise of translating business requirements to applications via code.
Coding isn’t a game. It is the delivery of value through composition and integration. A low-code platform with a high level of abstraction decreases the work required to translate a business need into a business application. This is accomplished by modeling-driven point-and-click application development, which may be used by both citizen and professional code developers.
The modern enterprise is all about speed.
Some of the driving factors:
- Fast changing customer behaviours
- Technology is permeating into every aspect of your enterprise
- Product life-cycles are shortening from years to months across the board.
- Certain customer-sensitive areas of business mandate an idea-to-execution speed in terms of hours, including PR, marketing cam- paigns, and recall situations . And much more.
As per Gartner Research “ IT is no longer just a platform that enables organizations to run their business on. It is becoming the engine that moves the business.”
What does low code bring on table?
A low code platform enables speed in not just one but multiple ways:
Enable citizen development that is by offering quick solutions for personal or departmental business need with no prior coding experience.
- Reduces IT dependency
- Support a variety of business and technological needs:
- Support application lifecycle management and DevOps
- Enables easy scaling up based on the needs of an organisation and much more.
Low Code is a huge interest area right now globally and it’s not kind of a business opportunity on its own but the kind of approach or a strategy or a product capability which most of the digital initiatives are expecting from their vendors. So, products and platforms which have strong Low Code capabilities, have better chance of winning those digital initiatives. So, the way we see this is a very-very large market globally, but also there is a lot of competition in this market. With Newgen being very strong on the process-centric application and the content- centric application, and Low Code capabilities end up providing a very big, differentiated value to the customers. On the funnel side, all cases are Low Code cases for Newgen because this has been the strategy that company has been selling. Of course, it’s been sold through process-centric, process automation sometimes, sometimes intelligent business process management, sometimes digital process automation. So, all of the company’s pipeline will be based on products which are Low Code products.
“ By 2024, low code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity.”Gartner Research

It is requested that users should not get lured by such optimistic target prices. All ideas must be explored from a long term perspective only. Last week we had warned users about the market outlook for the current year 2022 and so far Nifty has been down about 600-800 odd points in very short span of time. Even though we have suggested a new darkhorsestock idea we advice users to be cautions and not jump in to buy new ideas.
