A model-based development platform allows users to build an application in a human readable form by abstracting away from the technical details that make up the application. This approach is best used to deliver systems of innovation or differentiation, those systems that the business urgently needs and that are likely to change frequently.
Given increased demand for custom software coupled with continued need for existing maintenance efforts, more IT organizations are moving to a bimodal IT structure, where digital innovation efforts are treated separately from maintenance efforts. In this two mode approach, IT teams are looking for a faster way to deliver digital applications.
A model-based development platform utilizes visual modeling capabilities to graphically orchestrate application components, including the data model, user interface and application logic. These components exist through a higher layer of abstraction, so that users focus on building the right business solution, rather than on coding the technical components behind the application, ultimately speeding time to market for new applications. Model-based development allows users to construct application models that are executed at run time. This approach has three core goals:
