Instant IT is the substantiation of InfoNovus’s mission: We make IT automatic®. InfoNovus adopted three principles that Instant IT needed to satisfy. These are:
- Instant IT must deliver business applications that support the exact way the business wants to work
- Instant IT must deliver easy-to-implement applications with a low total cost of ownership and fast ROI
- Instant IT applications will use technologies that provide less IT complexity and simpler IT operations
These were challenging principles for Instant IT to fulfill. Here is how we did it:
Capturing Business Requirements with the InfoNovus Business Design Manager
The Business Design Manager is a rigorous way to capture business requirements digitally. It captures all essential aspects of a business process, including its operational actions, user interface and content needed, data, rules, and more. It also can validate Business Designs, generate complete detailed specification documents, and measure the application using an ISO standard that measures size in terms of the functions required by the user.
Computer-generating Complete Custom Applications with InfoNovus App Gen
Once a Business Design is finished, validated for completeness and accuracy, and approved, it is ready to have its application generated. The application generation process analyzes the business design to determine the database schema that best supports the application and the optimal structure of the application for an elastic, cloud-based application. As part of this process, clients select their desired data platform and cloud provider.
Supporting Management, Governance, and Operational Control of Instant IT
The Business Design Manager essential management, governance, and operational control functions include: authorizing business processes to be designed; assigning personnel to design each process; governance collaborators who will review, comment on, and accept each process, data element, and rule; generating and accepting the Instant IT application; and assigning business users to use the application to perform their operational work.
