The current pace of business is faster than ever before. To work smarter and faster, companies of all sizes are looking for ways to remove bottlenecks and make better decisions.
IT departments are no exception. Talent is becoming increasingly scarce while business applications and data management projects are growing in volume and complexity. Out of need, business technologists sitting outside of IT are increasingly developing applications. Unfortunately, these projects may not adhere to an organization’s corporate governance or security protocols, creating great risk.
IT and business technologists alike need low-code application platforms (LCAP) that make development quick and easy for citizen developers with little to no code, yet also ensure that companies stay in compliance with governance and security requirements.

Low-Code App Builder FAQs
Yes, App Builder is an added capability of Jitterbit Harmony, our low-code integration platform. Harmony is now the only enterprise integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that offers API management and low-code application development in a single platform.
App Builder and Harmony offer a single sign-on experience. For those with an existing Harmony license, an App Builder tile will appear on the Harmony dashboard interface and users will be able to access the tool from there. APIs built with API Manager will be accessible within App Builder.
App Builder provides an easy-to-use visual application builder with drag-and-drop capabilities, minimizing the need for coding. Customers can easily build user-facing business applications off of the automations already created in Jitterbit Harmony. With Harmony’s API Manager serving as a built-in connector, data can flow continuously between App Builder and an organization’s APIs exposed within the platform.
App Builder can help automate a range of processes, even the smallest ones. Here are just a few examples of the many use cases for this low-code application platform:
- Asset management. App Builder can help organizations manage, track, provision and deprovision employees’ assets, pulling in data from systems that are integrated with Jitterbit Harmony, such as BMC Helix and ServiceNow.
- Data accessibility for shop floor-based employees. App Builder is the perfect way to provide critical sales or product related details to employees who typically work on a shop floor, assembly line, or other similar responsibility. This information can easily be accessed from a CRM or order management system such as Oracle or Salesforce that are integrated with Jitterbit Harmony.
- Employee Expense Management. App Builder is a great option for organizations whose processes are all or mostly manual and managed via e-mail exchanges, which is time-consuming, prone to errors and has low visibility. Data can easily be retrieved from Concur, Workday, and other related HR systems already integrated with Jitterbit Harmony.
- Lead Tracking. For many organizations, leads are collected manually and captured in multiple spreadsheets and other systems. Using App Builder, lead info stored in Salesforce, Marketo and other systems can be made easily available and trackable with a single application interface.
- Sales Engineer Demo Management Dashboard. App Builder can automate demo environment provisioning, creating a simple web form with four or five different clickable options, each one representing a particular demonstration.
