What do you like best?
Graphite GTC is a very powerful platform which helps businesses in managing their enterprise applications all through their life cycle. It stands out well in this space as compared to its competing products because of these key merits.
Simple and Intuitive product with appealing visual modelling capabilities to design UI, business entities and processes.
Instantly delivers fine-tuned and excellent quality applications from visually developed models. Cuts down overall SDLC efforts by 60% saving huge amount of time and resource costs.
Technology independent and fits best for all business verticals in delivering robust and scalable applications addressing their dynamic business needs.
It’s short learning curve makes a beginner with basic programming knowledge master the tool and become productive within few weeks. Technology centric products that requires coding on the other hand takes quite a few years of experience to deliver productive and quality solutions.
It suits well for all types of Software Engineering development methodologies (Agile, DevOps, RAD, etc.)
What do you dislike?
It needs to evolve to support the following:
Ability to deliver CMS and media rich solutions.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Helped turning concept to market at a rapid pace. A well trained business specialist with limited use of programming expertise was able to quickly build a fully functional application with all basic workflows within a few days for several projects we have delivered.
Customers we worked for had high visibility on the progress and evolving the applications from basic version to meeting their final business objectives.
Graphite GTC has built in capabilities to deliver high performance and compliance to web security, globalization/Localization and UX standards. Team did not have to put in any extra efforts to fulfill several of these non-functional requirements.
Reduces overall SDLC duration by 60% resulting in huge savings in application development and maintenance costs.
Less dependency on high and niche skilled resources. I have trained several employees coming from other streams (BA, Testers, Designers, etc.) and they have been productive with Graphite GTC within 2-3 weeks.
Automated build and deployment features helped in deploying applications seamlessly to multiple hosting environments (On-premise server, cloud, etc.) without requiring much help from IT support team.
