Rapid enterprise applications
In today’s enterprise environment, businesses depend on more software, systems, and applications than ever before. At the same time business models, business processes, customer demands, and technologies are rapidly evolving – challenging the convergence of business and IT.
As a result, there is a growing demand for rapid and agile application delivery to keep pace with business demands. Meanwhile, IT managers struggle with legacy systems and are backlogged with change requests. Consequently, the common response has been to purchase third-party packaged solutions as a potential quick-fix. However, time and experience have shown that these solutions are often difficult to maintain and expensive to customize after deployment. Further, they tend to result in a disjointed application landscape.
This is where Genus comes to the rescue. Instead of resorting to time-consuming traditional coding or customization of packaged software, Genus can offer a low-code and model-driven approach with visual rapid application development. Genus accelerates application development between five and ten times, enabling you to meet new application demands, reduce backlogs and modernize your core.
The Genus difference
Not all low-code platforms are made the same. Genus is a low-code platform primarily designed for large-scale and advanced application development scenarios, often targeting core operational business processes. Rather than just using low-code to add new visual layers to existing legacy systems, you can start modernizing the heart of your business and build the unique professional applications your business needs and deserves.
Two common enterprise application scenarios where Genus is proven to provide supreme value are Dynamic Case Management and Digital Operations:
What our customers are saying

Other use cases for Genus
Based on our experience with enterprise customers, we find four common use cases where you can leverage Genus as a strategic platform for your application needs:
Replace outdated applications
Most enterprises have one or more legacy applications developed a decade or more ago that are still relevant in terms of business functionality. The problem is that these applications are hard to maintain, lack a modern user interface, integrate poorly with other applications, and are almost impossible to modify when business logic changes. With Genus, you can rapidly migrate such applications to a sustainable low-code development platform and exploit new user experiences and business process capabilities.
Extend SaaS and packaged applications
Software as a Service (SaaS) and packaged “off-the-shelf” applications are often excellent choices. Further, most modern applications enable integrations and extensions through APIs. By integrating Genus with these applications, you can expand the applications’ reach by adding new data fields, providing enhanced user experiences, and customizing differentiating functionality for B2E and B2B usage.
Build differentiating capabilities
While some of the applications in your organization may be bought off-the-shelf, others should be designed to provide or support the competitive advantages of your business. Recognizing that the value of these systems comes from your proprietary business logic, and not from your code, makes the potential and promise of a low-code platform much clearer. Rather than facing the risks and costs of custom development (coding) projects, you should evaluate whether Genus can be used as a platform for rapid and sustainable implementation.
Innovation projects are often defined by high levels of ambiguity and uncertainty. Unlike a traditional project, innovation requires experimentation and prototyping at a minimal cost. With Genus, you can rapidly build and change application prototypes to test on real users. Further, you can quickly shift from prototyping the experimental application to deploying an enterprise-ready application for production.
