Think about all the different deployment options that have come and gone over the last decade. That is a lot of wasted productivity tied up in legacy systems that are no longer supported. Imagine if you could generate consistent looking, high quality enterprise applications with minimal coding using a tool that has been rock solid for decades. The success of any low-code platform relies on its ability to integrate with everything, whether the objects are in the cloud, on-premises, or on a local device, server, or workstation.
Visual LANSA understands the problems that businesses face today, which is why Visual LANSA can offer you a low-code platform that can help you build applications faster achieving maximum productivity. With the low-code Visual LANSA IDE, you can use LANSA to build and deploy Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), IBMi 5250 clients, Windows desktop applications, mobile apps, and much more.
LANSA can help you Build Better Applications Faster
Visual LANSA can assist your business in rapidly increasing productivity through low code by:
- RESPOND TO DEMAND: Build apps faster than ever before with Visual LANSA. Improve developer productivity so they can satisfy the demand for custom apps.
- DO MORE WITH LESS: Allow every developer to work on any part of an application. Increase output without adding headcount or hiring expensive developers and eliminate specialized teams.
- DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION: Transform your manual and paper-based processes into the web, mobile, cloud, and desktop applications for better efficiency, productivity, and data accuracy.
- GO MOBILE: Quickly mobile-enable the parts of your business that need remote access to business-critical information. Enable-IT to reduce costs and improve the bottom line.
- DEPLOY ANYWHERE: The flexibility to deploy to an IBM I or Windows server or take your apps to the cloud anytime for better agility and elasticity. Improve availability while cutting operational costs.
LANSA Eliminates Teams of Specialized Skills
Every developer can work on any part of an application using the Visual LANSA low-code platforms. Developers can use the same skills to write client-side code, server-side code, and everything between LANSA’s high-level language. Eliminate splintered development teams and unify your existing team.
- REDUCE COMPLEXITY: LANSA’s high-level language shields developers from supporting and becoming experts in many languages and technologies.
- UPGRADE YOUR TEAM: The only way to increase IT output—besides hiring more staff—is to provide your current staff with better development tools.
- BREAK DOWN SILOS: Hiring and training developers with specialized programming skills promotes siloed development. Train all your developers on the same skill set.
- SKILLS MANAGEMENT: Stop struggling to find resources for each project. Equip and enable all your developers to universally work on every part of a project.
- STOP HUNTING FULL-STACK DEVELOPERS: LANSA turns your current team of developers into highly productive full-stack experts with minimal training.
Fast Development, Even Faster Maintenance
LANSA’s Business Rules Engine and Data Services Layer encourage a new approach to application development and maintenance. Given that ongoing maintenance accounts for 80% of an application’s total cost of ownership, Visual LANSA provides excellent ROI when updates are required.
- DEFINE system-wide business rules and data constraints throughout all LANSA-developed applications, regardless of what platform they are deployed on, maximize reuse.
- ENFORCE rules and constraints throughout all LANSA-developed applications, regardless of what platform they are deployed on.
- ELIMINATE platform or database lock-in. LANSA’s rules engine works on multiple server platforms and databases. IMPROVE data integrity because every application will adhere to the same set of business rules and validation checks before allowing the database transaction to take place.
- REDUCE the time required to make system-wide changes by updating business rules, data visualizations, and much more in a single metadata repository.
Integrate with Just About Everything
LANSA helps you integrate with in-house, legacy, on-premise, or cloud-based applications. LANSA’s integration capabilities stand well above other alternatives. You can easily extend data from any database on any platform to the web, mobile, and desktop applications.
Write Once and Run Anywhere
Changing server platforms or databases can be a huge pain. It can be challenging. You are immune to the platform, database, or interface lock-in with LANSA’s multiple deployments and migration capabilities, and you have complete control over where and how your applications run.
- SERVER PLATFORMS: Deploy your applications on single or multitier Windows, Linux, and IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400) servers.
- CLOUD OR ON-PREM: You can deploy on-premises or in the cloud (Azure, AWS, private). DATABASES: Visual LANSA works with Microsoft SQL Server, IBM Db2, Oracle, MySQL, and more.
- INTERFACES: Choose between web/mobile browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE 11+), native or hybrid mobile apps (iOS, Android, Windows), and Windows desktop clients.
- CHANGE YOUR MIND: If you have a change of heart, Visual LANSA allows you to swap databases or server platforms without much change to your applications.
What are the benefits of Visual LANSA in Productivity?
Visual LANSA’s low-code development platform enables businesses to digitally transform their operations and increase IT efficiency while reducing risk and technical debt, allowing development to finish on time and respond to increased application demand.
- Reducing Application Development Complexity: LANSA’s low-code development platform transforms everyone into a full-stack developer. LANSA contains a language, WYSIWYG designer, and one-click deployment for all form factors of an application.
- Improving Data Integrity: Visual LANSA’s integrated Business Rules Engine acts as both the custodian and the enforcer of business rule in an application. It kicks into action when an application attempts to change business data.
- Getting It Right the First Time: Visual LANSA’s application framework allows you to create high-quality enterprise applications with minimal coding. The tool includes live prototyping, prebuilt navigation, auto-generated search filters and detail panels, user-access security, and a lot more.
- Integrating with Anything: Visual LANSA is a low-code platform that directly integrates with your existing data and assets, both new and old alike.
- Future-Proofing Applications & Developers: Visual LANSA is a cloud-based platform for IT. It lets you swap platforms and databases or migrate to/from the cloud with little disruption.
- Going Beyond Model-Based Development: Low-code platforms work well for building systems of engagement applications. With Visual LANSA, you can build both systems of engagement and systems of record applications in the same place at the same time. You can standardize on one low-code platform for all development needs.
