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.
7 of 9

App Press

App Press is all about the presentation. Specifically, it's about designing and deploying apps (for iOS and Android) with rich media content that can be tweaked with Java or HTML5 but require no coding to get up and running.
The 'up and running' piece of that statement is important. One of the things App Press focuses on is helping organizations deploy, host, and manage their apps. The apps are designed to be either internal or customer focused and can be presented to users on your website, the Apple Store, or Google Play. In all the cases, though, App Press hosts and manages the apps, so that successful campaigns don't hit your servers.
Pricing varies widely, from $30 per month for individuals looking to learn about app creation and publish a single app to $460 per month per user (developer) for those intending to build a business around multiple high-volume apps. If there's a business unit that wants to be in the app business and doesn't know how to start, App Press could very well be a conversation worth having.

Re: Integration
Gigi,

Very well put!

I could'nt agree with those statements even if I wanted to today.

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!!!

"At what point do we decide to jump ship is entirely upto us and our way of looking at Life and Corporate Realities today. Some people are more hungrier/ambitious than others ;Some folks want other things in life. I don't think  either one is right or wrong here. Its just a question of differing viewpoints."

Asish, everyone is ambitious in their life at certain point. Someone may be in initial stage of the career or on later stage for some "C" posts. The key factor is only your ambition can drive you to the expected level; nothing comes automatically.

Ultimately this is very much a personal decision.

At what point do we decide to jump ship is entirely upto us and our way of looking at Life and Corporate Realities today.

Some people are more hungrier/ambitious than others ;Some folks want other things in life.

I don't think  either one is right or wrong here.

Its just a question of differing viewpoints.

"Valuable discussion for me as well, thank you. Certainly agree that there must be alignment between IT and the business when applications reach a critical point that requires more governance and security. All depends on the type and size of the orgnization how much, when (from the get go, once reaches stage X, etc.)"

Alex, welcome and thanks for the post. Both are complimenting each other; without IT, there is NO business and without business NO IT too.

The platform you're using must address both sides of the house, not just IT or in the shadows, but an iterative relationship between the two.

I follow this subject and write about it on The Fast Track if you would like to connect on Twitter

"I try to avoid Corporate Board rooms as much as possible... plus I stay far & away from office politics..."

Batye, I won't think that itself can make you tension free... you have to add up something else over it to make comfortable.
