Clay Richardson – Principal Analyst at Forrester Research –will be a guest speaker and facilitator of the“Using Lean Principles To Drive Rapid Experimentation” workshop on the first day of PEX Week(January 19, 2015, Orlando, Florida)with Nigel Warren of MatsSoft, the Low-Code software specialists.
The workshop will explore how to apply lean start-up principles to drive process improvement and rapid experimentation, using a Low-Code approach.
“The BPM market is undergoing significant change at the moment,” says MatsSoft’s head of marketing, Nigel Warren. “In particular, customers are looking for faster and less technical approaches to streamline customer-facing processes; methods that empower a wider range of less technical developers. Hence the rise of a new category of software called ‘Low-Code Development Platforms’. Products like MATS® enable you to reliably configure business solutions without programming; so it is less risky, faster, simpler and more cost-effective than traditional IT practices.
“By way of analogy – if you wanted to create a website today; most people would not start out by programming in HTML, they’d turn to a hosted platform like WordPress, because of the speed of development, templates and low learning-curve. Low-Code Development Platforms offer the same productivity gains – if you like a ‘WordPress for Business Apps’.”
