Multi Experience Development Platforms (MXDP) are a one-stop solution for building unified digital experiences across all channels with enterprise grade UX and development system for mission-critical applications. It combines the speed and ease of low-code development with a comprehensive set of enterprise back-end services and integration capabilities.
Multi-experience refers to the improved digital experiences in different devices or touchpoints. As technological advancements continue, modes of human-machine interaction witness a proportionate increase. Besides typing and other touch-based interfaces, users can also use their voice or gestures in 3D or virtual environment.
MXDPs: The new MADPs
MXDPs are the new generation of mobile app development platforms (MADPs). It is no longer enough for development platforms to simply support mobile and web application development. Consumers want a complete experience. MADPs enable development for mobile, web, desktop web and mobile apps. As a minimum, they must support at least one more “experience”, which can include chats, wearables and augmented reality. Consumers’ desire for more has caused the evolution of MXDPs, which as the name suggests, support multiple experiences.
Let’s have a look at the features of MXDPs-
- Delivering great user experiences across all channels
The way people engage with businesses, individuals, and systems is rapidly progressing from forms-based UIs on one or two devices to an expanding array of digital touchpoints that increasingly leverage new interaction models and capabilities. Mobile has been a target for application delivery for over a decade, yet mobile solutions in the enterprise remain largely underserved. Even organizations that have begun creating conversational UIs or AR apps have only developed and delivered a handful of mobile solutions. There are examples of organizations that have delivered dozens or even hundreds of mobile apps, but these remain much rarer than one might imagine. With MXDP platforms, it is easier to develop applications that can be rendered across multiple channels such as web, mobile, digital kiosks etc. with minimum coding to ensure that cost, time, and resource utilization is optimized.
- Low Code Developer Productivity
Low-code translates to higher developer productivity which leads to faster releases at lower costs. MXDP enables you to create digital experiences using a low-code approach in the form of modern web apps, true native apps, conversational apps, mobility, wearables, and immersive experiences.
MXDP has advanced aspects such as mobile features, pixel-perfect UX, easy integration with any system, secure offline capabilities, and one-click deployment. So, whether a company is building an enterprise-grade, business-to-consumer app with chat and voice recognition, or a complex field service solution, it can do it all with the speed and agility that is demanded of today’s development teams while also fulfilling consumer’s demand for ready and instant solutions.
- MXDPs enable digital transformation
Organizational requirements have moved beyond the simple development of mobile or web apps that development platform vendors needed to expand their value proposition. Market evolution and platform expansion has resulted in the demand for and emergence of multi-experience development platforms to enable digital transformation and facilitate a streamlined development system for a range of experiences, including chat, voice, augmented reality and wearables.
- Decrease Maintenance cost & Cost of resources
Using MXDP, enterprises can build new apps and/or revamp legacy apps at minimum or no additional cost. Low-code environment along with integrated development enables enterprises to work with less resources and build apps faster. The cost and more importantly, resource bandwidth, thus saved can be deployed on other high-priority deliveries. The saved cost can be used to enhance the very experience of the customer by building AI enabled interfaces, analytical models, chatbots etc.
- MXDPs eliminate shadow IT
If you were to create a list of all the software and applications used within your organization, from the common universal ones down to the niche favourites of individuals in your team, you would likely be overwhelmed by just how many systems are given access to your data. With all, or most, of your applications feeding out of one platform (your MXDP), you can get a bird’s eye view of your software landscape. This can help eliminate shadow IT, and with it, a potential security risk that many organizations struggle with.
In a nutshell, low-code helps developers be more productive and no-code helps non-developers become developers. Both low-code and no-code app development platforms have their place, and they share common advantages. The core feature for this product is harnessing technology to make things easier for humans making it the top pick by CTOs.
Today, when remote working has got a huge fillip, it is important to rationalize and consolidate application development efforts, replicate efforts across channels and undertake more development with a leaner team. The answer to each of these is to implement a “Multi-experience Development Platform”.
