In this article, we look at why multiexperience development platforms (MXDPs) are being used by organizations to help keep up with their increasing demand for innovation, as well as how the Cyferd Platform will redefine the focal areas of MXDP development.
According to a recent prediction by global research firm Gartner, three in every four enterprises will be using a multiexperience development platform (MXDP) to build business solutions by 2026.
The term is defined by Gartner as providing software engineering teams with a method to create interconnected user experiences across web, mobile, conversational, and more. Businesses often turn to MXDPs for a variety of reasons, from driving digital business transformation, driving digital innovation, and improving UX quality; MXDPs can streamline business processes by giving users tools to create apps.
However, while MXDPs can equip users with app construction mechanisms, simply utilizing an MXDP is not a one-stop-shop solution to digital business transformation. For example, many MXDPs fail to innovate with the handling, management and organization of source data, overlooking a key element of business modernisation and focusing on application development features instead.
This can add yet more application and data silos to an already fragmented landscape, creating more difficulty for development teams. Updating traditional or archaic databases can be time-consuming and challenging, while using decentralized systems can create inefficiency that impedes disruptive innovation.
Despite Gartner’s research, there is no one singular industry titan amongst MXDPs, despite an expanding market. The problem lies therein, challenges to data innovation present barriers to widespread digital transformation for enterprises.
The solution? Think bigger. The Cyferd Platform accelerates digital transformation by allowing users to create no-code, cloud-native business apps using a single, unified enterprise data model.
Where Cyferd differentiates from current MXDP offerings is by enabling users to reuse or extend previously integrated data; this simplifies app creation and maintenance, and ensures greater consistency and efficiency for users. With the Cyferd Platform, businesses can increase team productivity and accelerate digital transformation on their own terms.
Our platform enables users to build applications for every business area, from CRM, to Sales, to Finance, and more; our capabilities ensure that any changes to data within one app update immediately for any connected apps. We at Cyferd want to rapidly transform the way that businesses approach digital transformation with MXDPs by putting data at the heart of our solution.
