Konfigure is “A Game Changer” for Modern Businesses

the high productivity Platform as a Service (PaaS) from KeyedIn™
Solutions, has been hailed as a "game changer" by Scotlynn
Commodities USA division.
Commodities, which specializes in the transportation of
temperature-sensitive and perishable commodities, is proud to be the
first Konfigure customer. Scotlynn was introduced to Konfigure by Vella
Technologies, a Konfigure partner. Vella Technologies works to
deliver the highest quality IT infrastructure and workflow applications
to businesses around the world and views Konfigure as a “game changer”
for their clients.
Scotlynn was in need of a single, adaptable application that could
handle all its internal processes, from sales to human resources.
However, according to Ryan Carter, vice president of the USA division at
Scotlynn, other RAD (rapid application development) and PaaS platforms
that the company encountered felt like "a straightjacket," making it
difficult for it to turn its many ideas into functional tools. They
needed something completely new and different.
Being fully Cloud-based, Konfigure allows organizations to quickly
create Cloud solutions - bringing down the time and cost involved when
producing business applications. Companies can also steer clear of the
complexity of traditional software development and deployment thanks to
the KeyedIn Solutions PaaS plus product.
The Konfigure tagline, “Don't Code. Konfigure!” demonstrates how
companies can create and implement fully functional web applications,
such as HR, CRM, workflow, invoicing and online forms, without the need
for coding. Instead users configure the application using a 'drag and
drop' environment, which can be easily deployed in the Cloud.
Carter says Konfigure is perfect for Scotlynn's requirements and has led
to a fundamental change in the way the company's employees think.
"We can now focus on the task at hand, and we are always confident that
the technology behind us can support the ideas we have as our business
grows - we no longer have to worry about system errors or hardware
issues popping up,” said Carter. “What's more, Konfigure is very cost
effective. With a platform, based completely in the Cloud we can now
avoid the costs and time associated with having to hire new staff
members. Konfigure is a perfect development tool for the average modern
business person. Those who do not have a lot of technical expertise will
feel they can use the application to better run their business."
Rich Dumelle, general manager of the Konfigure division, said,
"Konfigure has the potential to revolutionize the way companies operate.
We’re delighted that Scotlynn Commodities chose the platform and we are
pleased to hear it has yielded such positive results in such a short
space of time. We hope that the platform will continue to serve Scotlynn
well for many years to come and help the company grow from strength to

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
