Introduction: Recently, at the 2021 “online seminar on the development and application of low code technology”, Shao Lei, product director of nailing should build, brought a keynote speech on “nailing should build low code to accelerate business interconnection and make change happen”, and introduced in detail the six interconnection capabilities of nailing should build low code products.
Yida was officially launched to nailing in January this year. With the concept of “continuous innovation is OK”. It is hoped that Yida will continue to reduce the threshold of application R & D and make low code more inclusive.
Shao Lei introduced that Yida first appeared inside Alibaba in 2016. Alibaba employees built more than 13000 internal applications with Yida, and most of the applications were built by Alibaba’s internal HR, finance and administration personnel who do not understand business. After nailing in January this year, the number of enterprises living each month has exceeded 250000, and the cumulative application has exceeded 1 million. In this scale, low code has become the trend of the whole industry. At present, low code application scenarios have covered all aspects of the enterprise, including personnel management, intelligent contract, enterprise application template and other businesses.
Turning to the development stage of low code, Shao Lei said that in the 1.0 era, what low code has been doing is driven by bpm. At that time, nailing proposed the process online and mobile approval method. Today, low code has managed the process very well and can introduce BPM into the business.
In the 2.0 era, we began to consider how to drive applications through metadata. The construction of the original data model and business model began to be paid more and more attention at this stage. The key words are how to ensure that all businesses are online today and how to give the ability of mobile office to different users today.
In the long-term extension, the development of low code has gradually entered another stage that is closer to the people and closer to the business, that is, the 3.0 data-driven era. Data-driven has gradually made everyone aware of the next trend breaking point. Everyone is a developer and a builder of business online. What we need to do is to provide them with tools and platforms for continuous innovation. Page construction, form process construction and so on have become the standard configuration of every low code product.
Turning to what Yida has done in accelerating business interconnection with low code, Shao Lei introduced Yida’s six interconnection capabilities.
1、 Low code business applications and nails
Document, schedule, attendance and other capabilities are fully open without coding, which is simpler;
2、 Low code business applications and SaaS / self built applications
Connector ecology is open, and low code business applications can be easily integrated with other applications;
3、 Low code business application and communication field
Millions of scenario group applications make the business more accessible;
4、 Interconnection inside and outside the organization
One click to open up cooperation space, associated organizations and service windows, making it easier for upstream and downstream industrial collaboration;
5、 Global data interconnection
Lower data Bi threshold, fully open up the original data set and enterprise business data, and have a large digital screen at one click;
6、 Low code business and cloud interconnection
The consumption of cloud resources such as AI, infrastructure and massive APIs is simpler, making the cloud more people-friendly.
According to Shao Lei, Yida introduces a complete set of connectors, including the concept of automatic layout, and provides nailing official connectors or even enterprise built connectors. Each connector can be called arbitrarily in events, processes and even the logic arranged, so that API calls become visual, It can be found that developers can call and quickly access these APIs without any coding work, and can be triggered by API events.
Through the connection of connectors, nails and third-party applications, the connection of SaaS applications in the nail Market and the standard connectors provided by the industry, each application suitable for production in nails can naturally have the ability of interconnection, and these interconnection will make the application environment more and more huge and make the application connection more compact, This is to bring greater consumption scenarios for low code through connectors. image.gif
Shao Lei introduced that the functions of the provided group plug-ins should be built in the nails, and more collaboration tools can be customized for the groups on the nails through the appropriate building. So what are the benefits of combining with groups?
Shao Lei believes that after an application is added to the group, in addition to making it easier to open the group, it is more important to combine the ability of robots in the group to push messages with today’s applications, so that the messages in the group can communicate with applications. At the same time, all permission managers can be specified through the group, and a series of information will be shared. After the application is added to the group plug-in, it can quickly start and open every function in the application, and even share all the capabilities of the group application with a series of things such as some cards in the group.
On October 20, Yida will officially release Yida version 3.0 at the 2021 cloud habitat conference. After the official release of Yida version 3.0, the group scene will also help you establish the scene. This is a more innovative interaction point that dingda hopes to make in a low code scene.
Shao Lei said that low code business application attempts can make collaboration inside and outside the organization easier. Nowadays, the existing associated organizations, service windows and cooperation spaces are deeply connected. For example, the associated organizations serve the management of upper and lower organizations, the service windows are light business connections, and the cooperation spaces are upstream and downstream. For example, any enterprise may have its own purchasers, its own distributors or its own franchisees. These service providers have their original unique applications in different organizations and even different management systems. Through the combination of product links such as association organization, service window and cooperation space, applications can generate some associations between different organizations, make some cross organization business connections, and distribute applications across organizations.
Finally, Shao Lei said that low code makes the connection of data easier. From the beginning, we can really bring more relevant cross analysis between cross application data and self built application data. Through the introduction of these data, we can lower the threshold of data Bi. At the same time, we can better present the business scenario after supporting the original data set and original business of the space.
