Metavine announces the release of Metavine Genesis platform, an open, expert system driven, declarative software development platform that transforms the way intelligent Cloud and IoT applications are designed and deployed. Genesis is application development, in a zero code environment, that automates the laborious tasks that often distract developers and cause sigtonificant resources to be spent on work that results in poor customer satisfaction with no competitive differentiation. By allowing developers to focus on solving real business problems, they are more innovative and produce compelling application solutions, fast.

“Genesis was created for the next generation of developers and solutions architects and was designed to meet the intense demands of building enterprise-class business apps,” said Craig Sproule, Metavine Founder and CEO. Craig continued, “It is a true zero code application development platform designed to enable the creation of enterprise-class applications. It allows developers and architects to build applications to meet exacting needs, while delivering unprecedented agility to the business.”

Genesis provides a unique visualized development process that allows developers to form microservices, RESTful APIs, integrations, process flows and rules to create solutions. It removes the concept of writing code and with it the process of debugging. It allows the developer to move from a developer/ coder mentality to a designer/developer model. This approach for generating Cloud and IoT applications places more responsibility in the hands of the people who define business needs, freeing them from typical engineering constraints. Application development becomes more collaborative and highly creative, involving technologists, solutions architects, designers, and line of business people performing crossfunctional work to produce agile business results.

“Low-code, no-code development has the potential to transform a business,” said Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies. Jeff continued, “But businesses need to change their mindset and adapt new software dev processes, in order to take advantage of this new approach. Accordingly, Metavine has taken this into account by including a community that can encourage peer-to-peer best practices.”

Also released for general availability is the Metavine Developer Portal, which, in addition to the Genesis Design Studio, includes the Metavine Knowledge Base, Ticketing and Forum, each created using Genesis.

“A great example is how we use it. Other than our financial system, every aspect of our internal operations, including Marketing Automation, CRM, Quote, Contracting, Billing, Service Ticketing, Knowledge Base, and our Community Forum was built on Genesis,” said Scott Broomfield, COO of Metavine. Scott continued, “We are also in beta with our Open AppShare where we share these solutions with our Community for free, enhancing value for our Community.”

Genesis Platform Specifics

The Genesis Design Studio includes: 1) comprehensive data modeling, 2) deep data integration, from low level database calls to 3rd Party Web Services and RESTful APIs, 3) an intuitive visual workflow capability, 4) a contextually aware and extensible, expert systems driven, rules engine, 5) Drag and drop UI creation, and 6) release management for application versioning. Further, Genesis is purpose built to address the security, scalability and reliability requirements of enterprise-class Cloud and IoT applications. Genesis monitors and optimizes application performance, ensuring high availability. Data encryption, both at rest and on the fly, is also supported.
