Designer Desk is an intuitive tool that lets you transform citizen-collected business requirements into ready-to-use application prototypes.
It allows business stakeholders to document requirements and create application prototypes using drag and drop interface. Next, they can take them for a test run, collect feedback, and then forward the prototypes to professional solution builders, who will evolve them into complete business applications in WEBCON BPS Designer Studio.
It’s easy, it’s effective, and a true game-changer for all of your future IT projects.
WEBCON BPS Designer Desk is a tool for citizen-assisted development, where the best business solutions are created out of a collaboration between business stakeholders and professional application builders.
This web-based, no-code tool is optimized for business stakeholders to gather requirements, create an application prototype, take that prototype for a test run, collect feedback, and forward to professional solution builders to develop it into a complete solution using WEBCON BPS Designer Studio and deploy into production.
Designer Desk is geared toward the initial requirements definition stage of a project. As such, it allows to design and model the following:
All of these can be created in a browser, using an intuitive drag and drop approach, and without a single line of code.
Business stakeholders can (and should) describe the business rules, connections to other data sources and applications, automation actions, etc., that they’ll want – but the actual configuration of those is a job for a professional solution builder using the Designer Studio desktop environment.
The people closest to the business problem get a way to design and test what they want to see and how they want it to behave in broad strokes. At a certain point, though, carrying the effort forward will require professional knowledge, skills, and techniques.
Stakeholders get to see a prototype right away. They can change it right away. And when everyone’s ready, professionals can see what stakeholders have done, learn from it, and carry it forward to the finish line. They’ll use tools optimized for building connections to external systems, mapping elaborate conditional business logic, defining a hierarchical set of permissions, dealing with deployment issues, and using advanced techniques to achieve user interface effects that just can’t be done via point-and-click or drag and drop tools.
The key benefit here is communication between business people and software solution people – what we call citizen-assisted development. Business people will be able to design the parts of an application they see (the fun parts, honestly), but they won’t need to learn how to become developers themselves. Professionals will see what users want instead of having to imagine it. They’ll do better work, and the prototype the users built will give them a head start.
WEBCON BPS Designer Desk, put simply, delivers the best of both worlds, and the connection between them
