Digital Transformation, MASA and low code. One and the same or an innovative partnership?


It’s all about the customer.  With prospective, new and existing customers demanding more, faster and – most importantly – mobile access to information, businesses are having to transform the way in which they make themselves available, both internally and externally.  Businesses simply must undergo this digital transformation, or they won’t be able to compete in their respective markets.   Essentially the ever-changing mobile technology landscape has created this need for digital transformation, on a global scale too.  And there seems to be no let-up in accelerated technological developments, so the sooner your business digitally transforms, the better.


This affects every business; from start-ups, to SMEs, to enterprises alike.  Any location, any sector.


Digital transformation today is achieved through innovations such as MASA and Low Code, which has CIOs excited and rapidly integrating these new technologies.


Starting with the architecture, MASA: Mesh Application Service Architecture. This modernisation of API functionality takes a more collaborative path.  By enabling multiple applications to use the same microservice components, connections are routed more rapidly and reliably.


Next comes the actual application development, in Low Code. This speeds-up the process of creating or adding functions of an existing app.  Functionality ‘blocks’ to be easily connected, thereby building a new manageable application.  Straightforward apps or add-ons can easily be created by ‘citizen developers’ ie no coding knowledge required.  Don’t misread here; more complex changes or software solutions will still need the expertise of analysts who are versed in coding.


Are these one and the same or an innovative partnership? The answer depends on the project.  For example.  Some projects require a platform as a service (PaaS) to create citizen developers within their organisation.  Other projects require a full customisation application development project delivery from scope to finish.  Some projects require collaborative microservices, whilst others only need application add-ons. Oh, of course some projects engage future technologies such as artificial intelligence bots which add machine learning to bring their applications to a whole new level.  The opportunities really are endless.


To the business user this digital transformation is improving and redefining the way business processes are being carried out and managed on a day to day basis. Digital transformation enables cross functional collaboration, improved teamwork, data sharing to all stakeholders.  All these have direct links to improving a business’ bottom line.  Below are a few examples of easily integrated applications:

  • Customer Experience Management solutions
  • E-commerce solution
  • Order processing solution
  • Document Management solution
  • Customer Relationship Management solution
  • Compliance Management solution


Each one inherently brings the following benefits:

  • Time savings
  • Cost savings
  • Increased data visibility
  • Improved functionality
  • Enhanced data processing efficiency
  • Optimised business process
