Building Apps Without Code: 7 Options For Your Enterprise

Application building no longer means learning to code. Here are seven products and services that can help you develop apps without developing programming skills.

Salesforce1

If you're in the enterprise world, you know Salesforce. For many people and organizations, Salesforce defines software-as-a-service (SaaS). Teams of IT professionals spend their days building applications on and around Salesforce, but with the Salesforce1 platform -- and specifically, with the Lightning canvas within Salesforce1 -- business unit employees can go a long way toward defining their own applications.
In order for the applications to be most useful, they're going to need to take advantage of your enterprise databases, and you're probably not going to want to turn a business unit non-programmer loose on either the database or the APIs to get there. This is an opportunity for cooperation and application integration, but it still starts with the application defined by the business unit. And that's a good thing.
Pricing for the Force.com bundle that includes the Salesforce1 platform ranges from $25 to $150 per user, per month, with custom enterprise pricing available. If you're a Salesforce.com customer, it's possible you're already paying for this. And if that's the case, the opportunities for cooperation with your business units are bigger and better.

Re: Integration
Bateye,

LOL!

Glad to see that you agree with my opinion entirely here!

It can sound a little funny initially but actually makes immense sense when one looks at it from a Larger(more Enterprise-wide) viewpoint.

"yes, you are right :) I would say life is too short... to worry about material things.."

Bayte, why to be get worries. If you are in a systematic way of executing the assignments; everything can be get complimented.

"thank you, in my books if thing done properly and right way no one could take it away from you :)... how I see it..."

Batye, may be true and that's the way of disciplinary work. We are talking about continuous effort and hard work for growth and sustainability. Eventhough both can complement each other, they are in different entity. One is a systematic way of executing the assigned work and other is about systematic growth.

"yes, could not agree more.. good point... right on the money :)"

Batye, money or perks are monitory or materialistic benefits.  Not only that your growth, position, capability etc are merely depending up on your efforts and hardworking.

Re: Integration
"Yes its true. I meet a lot of blokes who show very little or non-existent ambition through most of their career and then suddenly wake up and decide to "Achieve something". LOL!

Those kind of people are the most interesting (IMHO).Its usually phenomenal to watch how much they achieve in so little time and with minimal effort. LOL!!!"

Asish, some peoples are aggressive at certain points and some are like wait and act steadily. Those who are aggressive may not able to keep it throughout their career or pursue it further after a certain point. But those who are stable can win the situation because they are neither aggressive nor slow. When chances come they will make use of them. Others or lazy peoples call such instances as "Luck".
