While working in Pune for enterprise resource planning software maintenance and support, Akshay Shah realized that the popular ERPs available in the market were very complex in nature. He felt the need to develop a software which could churn out on-demand and cost effective applications for business process management. He developed a software platform called AgileWiz, a short form of agile wizard. The Agilewiz technology is based on the concept of platform-as-a-service which can build fully functional application modules by feeding appropriate metadata as input.
The Agilewiz has a business rules management system (BRMS) which ensures that implementers do not have to repeatedly rely on software principals for critical but necessary customizations of the product. Shah says that the platform has been designed from ground up and is technology independent. Any ERP, e-Governance, hospital management, or a payroll application can be developed quickly using Agilewiz.
Conventional ERP platforms are unable to create quick, on-the-fly applications because of their embedded older and rigid technologies which have hard-coded knowledge base. Shah's Agilewiz has a non-wired structure available in the public or private domain with a flexible architecture and a built-in workflow. The platform exists in cloud-based as well as Web-based models and is now also available as software-as-a-service platform. Agilewiz is patented with its unique feature that allows the user to customize an application, depending on the requirement changes, without having to depend for maintenance and support by any professional group.
"The RAD tool of the Agilewiz blends ISO, CMMi, and Six Sigma standards and makes programming redundant," says Shah. The first phase included database selection and maintenance, page layout, meta data creation and maintenance, email creation, chat integration, personalization of pages (changing theme), and compilation. Furthur enhancements to the platform have added its capability to create runtime functionalities based on various business rules. The engine is currently under the beta test phase.
