Zoho CRM | November 11, 2020, By Bob Ritter.
Gartner Group evaluated 18 vendor applications that are intended to deliver high-productivity and multi-function capabilities across organizations. Low-coding applications are in great demand by medium and large firms. Such firms require custom business process tools that take programming. Zoho Creator’s platform offers tremendous advantages over traditional programming.
1. Time savings and cost reduction
2. Rapid and reliable coding
3. Highly advanced functionality
4. Enhances the capabilities of developers
5. Reduced technical/human resource requirements
6. A greater pool of outsourced resources from experts on the platform around the world
Zoho’s strengths translate into increased application development productivity with reduced skill-set requirements for developers.
Zoho Creator offers development, deployment, and execution capabilities that are highly suitable to a vast range of business processes, business logic and data needs.
Zoho’s high-level programming features support Zoho’s giant set of over 45 business applications as well as several other metadata-based programming languages in order to develop solutions for non-Zoho products. Zoho Create can build enter solutions from scratch that stand on their own.
As an enterprise-class, Zoho Creator can meet the demanding needs for performance, scalability, high availability (HA), disaster recovery (DR), security, service-level agreements (SLAs), resource use tracking, technical support from the provider, API access to and from local and cloud services, multi-region and multi-cloud/on-premises deployments and backups, vertical and horizontal auto-scaling, and rich application performance monitoring.
As a niche player, Zoho meets the needs of smaller organizations more economically than top leaders. According to Gartner, Zoho’s comprehensive feature set is comparable with the largest LCAP vendors/competitors.
Already a mature and fully featured low-coding platform with a substantial user base, Zoho has a reputation of doing active R&D. Zoho’s roadmap is considered by industry experts to be extensive compared with other vendors. As such Zoho is planning to add RPA, more collaborative development features, a test automation suite, and AI-augmented application development support. It also plans to add the necessary governance abilities to establish developer guardrails to administer fusion teams.
First Direct Corp offers development services using Zoho Creator. Should the need arise, we can extend the capabilities of Zoho CRM and other Zoho applications through custom development with Zoho Creator.
