SISnet Zero Code. New parameterization paradigm

Zero Code is a new paradigm for the implementation of IT and business management systems, consisting in approaching tehcnology to business user: this user will be able to implement and model his own rules and elements, shaping the products and processes directly in the management system.

What do organizations need today?

In general, organizations have to orient their business activity towards a focus on processes:

  • Organizations need to influence on their business processes all the time.
  • Organizations need to interact in their processes in order to adjust and refine them.
  • Organizations cannot afford to treat Management Information Systems as a "black box". They can abstract from their own technology, but not from their processes.

What happened to the old technological paradigms?

In the 1980s, the management systems were programmed in assembler, a language very close to the machine.

In the 1990s, the continous growth of management needs makes it necessary to evolve towards more modern languages, such as Cobol. These languages will bring programmatic systems closer to technicians, but will remain far from the business user.

At the end of the 1990s, high-level languages began to proliferate, bringing together techniques of scripting to valuable functions to business area, such as Visual Basic. These scripting languages began to be used not only by programmers but also by the user elites.

Since the year 2000, the languages that have appeared in scripting-type applications mixed with parameterization systems are considered low code. Low code is presented as an extension system of pre-built concepts and, by its very format, is still technology-oriented and not business-oriented.

However, despite the step forward in low code, it is still far from most business users. It is still complicated and needs certified personnel, since it is exclusively oriented to a control language and not to functionality, and it forces to have many technological concepts.

Why defining a new paradigm? Why Zero Code?

It was necessary to go one step further, and move towards a fully business-oriented, "no-code" technology system.

In Zero Code, logic is parameterized. Its construction units are based on functional elements, rather than technological instructions. Business variables exist implicitly based on context, rather than explicitly controlled through language.

For example, how would the actuarial age of an insured be modified in a policy?

  1. Using low code, the user should know how to get to the policy, select the insurer and calculate his actuarial age
  2. Using Zero Code, the variable "actuarial age of the insured" already exists, and takes the value corresponding to its execution context.

Therefore, Zero Code allows to describe in business terms, the logic of the processes; this way, processes become transparent to the organization and are preserved against knowledge leakage.

For the company

  • Ability of the organization to grow and influence the business processes
  • Increased loyalty of key employees: they become builders
  • Higher organization productivity
  • Business ideas are easily reflected in the system as they do not have to be translated between the business and the technology
  • Zero Code transforms to digital the organization knowledge
  • Functional specialization vs. technological specialization
  • Reduction of time-to-market

For the technlogical project

  • It doesn't need "compilation": changes can come into effect at the moment
  • They do not interfere with software development processes, allowing them to adapt to existing methodologies that allow applications to be deployed securely
  • Drastic reduction of modeling errors and boost on productivity benefits
  • The documentation of process logic becomes digital and instantaneous
  • Implementations are speeded up
  • Cost reduction in technology
  • Flattening of the learning curve for modern programming languages

What skills are required for Zero Code?

  1. Business knowledge
  2. Processes approach and knowledge
  3. Logical capabilities

How is Zero Code used?

A través de las herramientas de SISnet, con un enfoque dinámico y estático.

We talk about static elements such as the main parametric elements, which are used in the following tools: Product, Process, Interface logic, API Rest and Campaingn Workshops.

The dynamic elements are managed by SISnet rule engine, allowing to apply logic to business rules and processes.
