We support you on your way to the Composable Enterprise

Many companies are dealing with different types of digital transformation. Regardless of whether existing processes are digitized or whether they are forced to adapt as a result of disruptive changes: Organizations, including employees and IT systems, must be able to respond quickly and flexibly to the new changing conditions.

Composable Applications Scheer PAS
How are composable applications defined?

Composable Application describes a concept that allows functional blocks of an application to be separated from the entire process. A Composable Application platform coordinates independently developed programs, data and devices to deliver a new solution that none of the previously available applications could deliver alone. This means that new applications can be created with better functionality and greater value.

Respond quickly and flexibly to market conditions

with Scheer PAS

A central aspect is the use and further development of software: It has never been more important for companies to be able to adapt their IT landscape and individual systems in an agile manner and expand them in an uncomplicated way. Only by making the existing IT infrastructure more flexible, for example, through the use of Low-Code application development, Integration (iPaaS) and API management, a company can develop stable resilience to the rapid changes in the markets. Applications must be deployed quickly, and companies should reuse existing services to minimize time to production.

This places new demands on existing software development and integration platforms. Companies today no longer develop new applications on a greenfield basis and then painstakingly integrate them into the existing system landscape, but rather flexibly and quickly as "composable applications". These new applications are based on so-called application composition platforms, which now combine the two or three different platforms previously required for such applications into a single one. This significantly reduces the "time-to-value".

Scheer PAS has decades of experience in Low-Code development and Integration (iPaaS). In our Application Composition Platform, we combine Low-Code application development, Integration (iPaaS) and API Management - complemented by the use of process management and artificial intelligence. Through integrated tools for all sub-areas of digitization, the Application Composition Platform approach enables an unprecedented user experience and significantly accelerates all projects in the context of digitization. This is how we support our customers on their way to the Composable Enterprise.

Scheer PAS The Application Composition Platform

Within Scheer PAS, you will find all the essential requirements to make Composable Applications the standard in your company. In addition, new projects can be implemented faster than ever before.

"Due to the high reusability of individual applications, services and integration mechanisms, project plans can be implemented 30% faster on average."

- Sharam Dadashnia, Former Head of Product Management

All of this is integrated into one platform.

Integrated web-based tools mean that application developers and specialist departments (Citizen Developers) only have to deal with one platform and can save valuable time. With Scheer PAS, you reduce the communication effort between the business departments and the IT specialists, since the seamless transition from the specialist department to the development department is ensured in a structured manner. Everyone knows exactly where they need to tie in and provide support ("reducing the level of interpretation"). By dovetailing all the necessary components, not only can the time required for project implementation be reduced, but the so-called "total cost of ownership" is also significantly lowered. In addition, training and familiarization times are also reduced, since only one platform is in use and not several.

Scheer PAS offers both a Low-Code and a Pro-Code variant for creating applications. For the Low-Code variant, we provide you with a tool, the Scheer PAS Designer. The Designer enables you to design processes, workflows and interfaces via drag & drop - you do not need any prior programming knowledge to use the Designer. This way, you also enable the end user or the specialist department to actively participate in your applications. The Pro-Code variant enables IT specialists to intervene and program extensions where the possibilities of Low-Code development are exhausted. Your own IT department, developers of Scheer PAS or a service provider of your choice can then come into play and add necessary extensions to the Low-Code applications.

Scheer PAS functions of coposable applications

In the next step, the applications are interconnected via the Scheer PAS integration layer. Each application receives a standard interface for sending and receiving data. Within the integration layer, the individual applications can be connected to each other. In addition, all data can be transformed, adapted and "mapped" in this way. This is also done as Low-Code functionality within the Scheer PAS Designer. Of course, not only applications developed in Scheer PAS can be interconnected, but also any third party systems can be integrated with Scheer PAS. In this way, you avoid the danger of switching from one monolithic system to the next.

If you want to make the application available externally, it is strongly advised to secure the interfaces. Therefore, Scheer PAS has its own API Management component that supports you in managing, securing and evaluating your interfaces. When it comes to deployment, it is important to go all the way and build on a modular implementation here as well. Scheer PAS offers you two options: The classic microservice, where an application is deployed within the platform, but completely separate from all other applications. To go one step further, it is also possible to deploy applications in individual containers. This allows the applications to work completely autonomously from each other, both in terms of the functionality itself and the runtime. This enables almost unlimited scaling: The modular design allows the application to be distrubuted across many individual systems. Large, monolithic and extensive IT systems are no longer required, as is the case with a large core system.
