6 WebDP vs. Other Platforms Personal opinion - based solely on my experience Focus on development process Compared Platforms ApPello WebDP Standard JavaEE / Spring platform   Tallyman Collections  Finantix Platform  Copyright © 2014 Unicorn Systems a.s. 6

7 1: Parameterization (RAD) WebDP Web based UI accessible directly in the application Quite intuitive (drag and drop, ….) – usable by business analysts => can be even used for “online” prototyping JavaEE/Spring No RAD tool for business analyst available out of the box Tallyman Requires a stand-alone configuration tool Can be usable by business analysts but not so intuitive Finantix Requires a stand-alone configuration tool Quite complex, usability by business analysts is limited Copyright © 2014 Unicorn Systems a.s. 7

8 2: Customer-specific Development Motto: "easy things should be done easy, complex things should be done easier … but use a standards-based approach - do not reinvent the wheel" WebDP Open platform – designed to be extended by standard JavaEE development  Reuse of standard JavaEE development tools and processes  Reuse of tons of available Java libraries … and Java developers JavaEE/Spring It is one of the standards for development of enterprise applications Tallyman Customer-specific development is quite limited (database-level only) Finantix Rich feature set, but uses a proprietary language Copyright © 2014 Unicorn Systems a.s. 8

9 3: Configuration Management WebDP Basic scenarios (performed by a business analyst) can be easily handled by inbuilt functionalities More complex scenarios are designed to be handled by a version-control system JavaEE/Spring Standard approach fully applicable, but no out of the box support for basic scenarios Tallyman Configuration management too simple, more complex scenarios too hard to support Finantix Comparable to WebDP Copyright © 2014 Unicorn Systems a.s. 9

10 WebDP Assessment WebDP platform is worth considering Main advantages Modern UI layer Rapid web-based development tools Open platform  Based on open standards (JavaEE, HTML5)  Well balanced mixture of  Parameterization  Customer-specific development  Standard platform features Copyright © 2014 Unicorn Systems a.s. 10
