Build
(Developer+ & Base)
Auto-generate contracts, code, mappings between layers and transaction, and test conditions so developers can easily assemble repeatable, predictable and rapidly scalable API products, then plug specific functionalities into the back-end as needed. This frees up IT minds to focus on business logic, implementation, user experience, back-end connections and all the big-brain thinking that optimizes their skill sets.
  • Consistency, reuse, alignment 
  • Contracts – REST, SOAP, Event 
  • Code, test conditions, transformation, documentation
  • Developers freed up for business logic
