Rapid App Development platform WaveMaker updates to v9 to improve user experience driven engagement.

WaveMaker, Inc. has announced its latest software upgrade, WaveMaker 9. 55 percent of visitors spend less than 15 seconds on a website, user-experience-driven engagement becomes extremely crucial. That’s why the WaveMaker 9 upgrade focuses on a simplified and friendly first-time user experience.

The upgrade comes with video tutorials and tool run-throughs that onboard fellow/partner developers and give them a clearer picture about the functions of all the components of the platform. Also, users don’t have to leave the WaveMaker tool interface to seek out guiding documents. The latter are integrated inside the product itself, making it easier for users to consult the documentation rapidly and seamlessly. Overall, this onboarding experience is shaped from incisive analytical insights that ensure higher retention rate of, and smoother navigation for, users.

“The value of the digital experience is increasing and can be seen in every click and swipe by users. A good user experience is a magic pill for enterprises today, as it results in repeat visits and high user retention,” said Vijay Pullur, CEO of WaveMaker. “Those are the two pillars on which we designed WaveMaker 9. Our research, and the insights we gained from that research, allowed us to shape WaveMaker’s low-coding RAD platform with an augmented user experience that empowers developers to be extremely efficient in app development.”

API integration is omnipresent today, however it requires advanced levels of coding for proper authentication, such as with OAuth. WaveMaker’s latest version offers a much simpler OAuth 2.0 integration, which does not require writing a single line of code. Additionally, prefab integration has been upgraded in the release, so that new integrations can be added seamlessly to the platform without the need for an update. Prefabs are small, independent microapps that users can stack up to develop apps, and also test and deploy them. In future releases, WaveMaker plans to introduce more integrations and partnerships that result in release automation and, in turn, business agility.
