In the digital age, where technology is rapidly advancing, the old saying “time is money” has never been truer. Enterprise development teams that can build and deploy applications faster are better equipped to respond to market changes, customer needs, and emerging trends. This agility is not only a competitive advantage, but it also ensures the organization is future-proofed against disruption from competitors who can innovate faster.

Furthermore, with the advent of low-code application platforms, the barriers to building and deploying apps have been significantly lowered. This means that enterprise development teams can now empower a broader range of stakeholders to build apps and create fusion teams that directly solve their unique business problems.

Why fusion teams are needed?

Building and deploying apps quickly requires a diverse set of skills and perspectives. Gone are the days when developers were holed up in a room churning out code without teams of different personas. Instead, teams must be able to work together across functions, disciplines, and locations to develop innovative solutions that meet the needs of their organization.

What benefits do fusion teams offer?

Fusion teams allow organizations to bring together a wide range of expertise and experiences, which can lead to more creative and effective solutions. When developers, designers, business analysts, and other stakeholders work together, they can gain a better understanding of the problem they are trying to solve and develop more comprehensive solutions that meet the needs of all stakeholders.

Maximizing fusion teams with the right technology

NewgenONE low-code application development platform facilitates collaboration for fusion teams with built-in requirement-gathering tools to gather and manage ideas, artifacts, and approvals with documentation for project artifacts, use cases, user stories, requirements, and test cases. The platform can capture project requirements and manage them within the system which eliminates the need of writing lengthy documents.

Furthermore, with a new project on NewgenONE, a low-code application platform solution a default project repository is created on the integrated content management module. All the application artifacts including documentation, screen mockups, and process flow get stored on the repository created in the content management module to enable easier access and collaboration.

Collaborating via MS Teams to manage artifacts effectively

Newgen also integrates with Microsoft Teams, enabling teams to collaborate in real-time. This integration allows for real-time communication between team members, with notifications and alerts for updates and changes. Using the content management plugin available for Microsoft suite, any document created outside the platform gets stored on the content management repository. The artifacts created including mockup screen, processes, etc. follow a maker checker approval process available on the platform.

Developing apps through an iterative approach for increased productivity

Finally, such collaboration can help teams to be more agile and responsive to market changes. With continuous collaboration, development teams can respond to feedback quickly and iterate on their solutions until they achieve the desired results. This iterative approach to app development supports innovation and speed of development. It allows developers to focus on and experiment with what’s most important thereby increasing developer productivity.

Another facet to increase developer productivity is measuring developer experience by providing developers with the tools and resources they need to streamline their workflows and collaborate more effectively. However, a platform’s success depends largely on the experience of the developers using it. Measuring developer experience enables low-code application platform providers to understand the challenges developers face and identify areas of improvement. This helps to create a better user experience and results in higher satisfaction levels among developers.

Measuring developer experience for productivity

Newgen measures developer experience through user ratings by providing an easy-to-use feedback mechanism that allows developers to rate their experience with the platform. By collecting feedback from developers, Newgen can gain insights into how users interact with the platform, identify areas for improvement, and prioritize development efforts. User ratings provide a valuable source of data that can be used to optimize the developer experience, leading to greater productivity, higher satisfaction, and better overall performance. The user rating system also enables Newgen to adapt to changing user expectations, delivering a superior developer experience.

Newgen also determines the developer’s rating by technical assessments, stories completed, code reviews, and feedback from colleagues and clients. By evaluating a developer’s performance across different projects and tasks, Newgen can build a more comprehensive picture of their experience and skillset. This can lead to better allocation of resources, more targeted training and development, and ultimately result in higher productivity.

In closing, these are my final reflections, Collaboration is imperative for low-code application platforms as it helps to create a more inclusive work environment, where everyone’s ideas and perspectives are valued and heard. This fosters a sense of ownership and engagement among team members, which can lead to higher levels of productivity and enable responsive app development.
