(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Manchester (UK) based Cara Digital, who have provided digital solutions for blue chip UK based companies for the last four years, launched its new product Aucoda. The product, already live with a number of UK-based companies, aims to help businesses reduce their application and integration development cycle times by creating a new approach to writing software. The product utilises its own simple English description language (AU). This enables non-technical staff to describe their application problem; the platform then uses the description to auto generate 1000’s of lines of code creating Web, Mobile and Legacy applications at the same time. The platform then enables those staff to manage change and deployment through simple configuration.
Aucoda is part of the latest wave of software companies using automatic coding principles through the use of domain specific languages to auto generate software. Aucoda’s mission differs from many companies in this area as its aim is to help businesses reduce their application and integration development cycle times by creating a new approach to writing software incorporating code generation for Web, Mobile, Integration and Legacy. This approach takes automation to the application layer enabling companies to create bespoke solutions which utilise their legacy systems.
Aucoda allows companies to:
- Create a description of their problem and build a solution using highly generalised code components, called code blocks, which are specifically designed to be threaded together to form the end application.
- Employ a “write once and use many times” approach, applications can be written and deployed “at the speed of configuration” in significantly less time than traditional coding techniques – often in weeks instead of months.
- Utilise aucodaBench ™ Aucoda’s extensible coding environment that allows non-technical staff to describe their application problem and then generate the application automatically and manage change and deployment.
- Handle Web, mobile, and legacy in one place – simultaneously write for the web, for mobile devices, for legacy systems and integration – describe, build and deploy solutions for all channels together.
Aucoda is a product developed by Cara Digital, a Manchester (UK) based digital company. Its CTO Dr Raj Curwen has a PHD in Search Technologies from Loughborough University (UK) and has worked for a number of UK-based blue chip companies (ICI, ABB) and previously launched SoProtectme a consumer-based Web Protection Product.
Cara Digital’s CEO Stuart Melhuish commented, “Many companies need to utilise their legacy systems and quickly launch new services for customers on the Web or Mobile but have limited budgets and find quality technical staff difficult to find, Aucoda provides a solution for these companies.”
