Data Model Automation

Cut Enterprise App Development Cost

Slash enterprise app development cost by using Splicer to expose and control your client-server mobile model. By exposing the server model directly to your clients, Splicer automates tedious client-server coding, and eliminates expensive coding costs that typically run over $250K per client. The long-term savings are even higher because subsequent apps become much easier to develop and maintain — especially considering that on-going maintenance typically consumes 90% of software TCO.

Splicer provides essential client-server plumbing you are hand-coding and maintaining today:
•   Server code (request handlers, SQL, etc)
•   Business logic translating server model to client model
•   Client Http connection management and exceptions
•   Client Parsers
•   Client MVC and associated data objects

Here’s a typical use-case. You’ve just finished your latest sprint, tested it out, and your release candidate is ready. Yet, it never fails. Someone inevitably says, “Can we just add one more field?” You know that means you must change an object on your mobile app, you must modify it’s wiring to the transport layer, you must tweak the database schema, and you must modify your test harness to ensure everything works. With Splicer, you can add the field, regenerate your object, transport layer, database and testing harnesses quickly and reliably.

With Splicer, you develop using your existing tools and languages. There is no need to use hyrbrid, MBaaS, or other radical changes to your development stack. Splicer belongs to a new class of product called “low code”. These products replace mundane tasks typically performed by programmers. Ours is the least painful, and cheapest way to start optimizing and targeting for mobile.

Splicer alleviates the dependency on existing web infrastructure, and provides independence from web-server development constraints. It allows you to conveniently publish server data via an exciting, new mobile architecture. And there is no IT expertise required of the existing server architecture. Stop suffering lengthy delays waiting for your server team, and get instant relief from your IT bottleneck. But unlike other “low code” solutions, Splicer allows you to create client data models that can be used by both the “citizen” developer, and the native, enterprise developer alike. This frees your development team to work on high-value functionality.
