At Intenda, we are firm believers that the advantages bespoke solutions offer over off-the-shelf products make them well worth the investment. Our recent blogpost outlined the Top 3 Advantages of Bespoke Software Development, and in this one, we’ll focus on our development framework, Opus, and some of the key benefits it delivers.
Of course, going the bespoke solution route is not without risks. There are many examples of organisations investing heavily in custom software, only to find that the solution they end up with does not perform as expected, fails to gain traction within their organisation, and ultimately fails. The fact that bespoke solutions typically take time to build is a key consideration. Long running development projects carry a high cost, and can result in businesses failing to capitalise on advantages before the window of opportunity closes.
Intenda’s teams use the Opus development framework, a low-code/no-code platform that is one of the Fraxses platform’s four key modules, to create bespoke solutions. In Opus, the user interface is coded using configuration rather than UI coding. This unique approach reduces complexity and enables our customers to reap all the benefits that bespoke software offers, without facing the risks or incurring the costs that are usually associated with custom development.
Built on the leading UI framework React, the Opus development framework allows developers to create applications that interface with Fraxses Data Objects through JSON dashboards. These applications include front-end solutions for both desktop and mobile, mobile-specific apps that can tap into the native features of handheld devices, and plugins that extend the lifespan of legacy systems.
While the Opus development framework is not available as a commercial product, its power can be readily accessed via our Bespoke Development offering. Intenda recently created a bespoke mobile app for one of our key customers, delivering the first iteration in just six weeks. This project demonstrates the power of Opus, which allowed for the customer to be involved in the development process, and offered the flexibility to implement changes in requirements at short notice and without affecting the project timeline.
