Micro app platform
, Sapho, has announced that it is connecting its platform with IBM Domino to help companies use existing apps as well as build consumer-like micro apps. IBM Domino
is an advanced platform for hosting social business applications (earlier known as IBM Lotus Domino). It provides scalable, security-rich applications at a low cost.
Why IBM Domino?
According to Sapho, organizations can build secure micro apps on top of existing enterprise systems, such as IBM Domino, using the Micro App Platfrom
, and also simplify access to information and workflows used by employees.
By making its platform accessible to IBM Domino customers will help IT build micro apps that interact with IBM Domino databases, that contain large quantities of enterprise data and business logic, in a user friendly manner.
Sapho’s micro apps sit on top of IBM Domino’s existing applications, monitor for changes, and surface them to employees so they can complete simple tasks like approvals and database queries.
“The Sapho Micro App Platform helps streamline workflows and deliver experiences to increase employee engagement,” said Ed Brill, Vice President, Product and Design, IBM Collaboration Solutions.
“Organizations using IBM Domino are seeking effective ways to refresh and extend Domino applications. Sapho now enables organizations to build micro apps leveraging and integrating their existing Domino investments.”
How will the platform help?
The micro app platform maker claims that the platform delivers personalized information and one-click tasks via a Facebook-like newsfeed available to employees on their channel of choice, including a native mobile app, browser, intranet, email and/or messenger client, like IBM Watson Workspace
“Email and workflow applications must be relevant and designed for today’s user in order to improve their efficiency,” said Peter Yared, CTO and Co-Founder, Sapho.
“With Sapho and IBM Domino, IT is able to deliver micro apps based on IBM Domino data that contain modern interfaces and exceed employee expectations without costly upgrades.”
According to a research
conducted by Sapho and Forrester Consulting, on enterprise application enhancements, employees want personalized, mobile, consumer-like apps at work, similar to the ones they use outside the office. Sapho claims that availability on IBM Domino will help make workplace software more consumer-friendly.
