Enable analysts to create applications

A12 provides a set of tools for business experts and analysts. Using these tools, they can create domain-specific models and build their own multilingual business applications. Programming skills are not required. The modeled business logic and structures of user interfaces can be easily reused.

A12 Widgets Showcase

The A12 widget library is part of the  A12 Business Application Platform (BAP)

Our A12 Widgets mission is to provide a wide range of web components that follow a consistent and attractive design and interaction concept (Plasma) to support business applications running on desktop, tablet and smart phone supporting keyboard, mouse and touch input. The components provide an easy to use, well documented, strongly typed API and are extendable and customizable.

A12 Plasma is a design system mainly addressing business applications, by providing a better usage efficiency and predefined interaction patterns for common business use cases.

Rely on a model-oriented architecture

A12 Client

Model driven components in the center of the client side application enabling declaration of core application aspects, modules, navigation, screens and major interaction patterns. They take care of request handling, data retrieval and processing, state management and orchestration of lower level components like UI engines.

 

A12 Engines

Model driven UI components based on Plasma UI/UX concept and the Widget library implemented in Typescript and React. This covers currently forms and overview, require configuration by models but also provide a programming API in Typescript.

 

A12 Kernel

Definition of documents and document models along with modeling tools. A domain specific language for model based computation and validation incl. parser, runtime components and a programming API in various languages.

A12 Services

Service API and implementations to deal with models and documents supporting creation, retrieval, update, deletion and querying. This is provided in Typescript for the client side and Java for client and server side. It comes along with client/server communication, authentication, authorization, computation, validation, persistence, indexing, versioning and locking.
