June 24, 2014, Herndon, VA – MicroPact Inc., the global leader in Data-First™ Case Management and Business Process Management (BPM) software, was cited by Forrester Research, Inc. as an example of an application development platform that employs “low-code development tooling that dramatically simplifies product adoption compared with enterprise BPM/dynamic case management (DCM) suites.”

The Forrester Research report – New Development Platforms Emerge For Customer-Facing Applications, June 9, 2014 – was written by Principal Analyst Clay Richardson and Vice President, Principal Analyst John R. Rymer and based on 22 in-depth interviews with organizations using low-code platforms such as MicroPact’s entellitrak®.

According to the report, “Hand-coding is too slow to develop and deliver many of the applications that companies use to win, serve, and retain customers. Some firms are turning to new ‘low-code’ application platforms that accelerate app delivery by dramatically reducing the amount of hand-coding required.”

Because most business application functions can be represented by repeatable patterns, MicroPact’s entellitrak, a rapid application development platform, allows these components to be modeled using metadata instead of requiring custom or hand-coding. By eliminating the need for this custom coding and application scaffolding, developers can focus on implementing the features users want and solving the more complex technical challenges.

“With entellitrak, enterprise-level Case Management and BPM solutions can be configured and implemented in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost often required by custom coding and custom software development,” said Kris Collo, President, CEO & Founder of MicroPact. “This translates into better, more agile systems, and greater savings for enterprise organizations.”

MicroPact software, currently used by 97 percent of federal agencies with more than 500 employees, is one of the most utilized enterprise case management platforms in government today.
