BlueFinity’s Evoke Platform Works in the Cloud

Evoke, the low-code app development platform from BlueFinity, is designed to give developers the flexibility to make the optimum choices regarding their use of the cloud.

The key to Evoke, and the benefit of using it in the cloud, is in its modern design, its inherent use of new and industry standard technologies, and in its flexibility, so that it can seamlessly support the required environment chosen by its customers, according to the vendor.

A virtual (or even physical) machine in the cloud is a very viable option for an Evoke developer and ensures a self-contained environment with additional backup options.

The actual app design, created using Evoke, is held securely on an Azure platform in the cloud with each individual Evoke account being allocated its own separate safeguarded partition.

This partition on the Evoke cloud allows support for a group of developers working on the same app design at the same time.

 An IT division with a number of developers, or a group of citizen developers from various departments, are all able to access and work on the same app project design.

Having this available on the cloud means that it is able to maintain the integrity of the project by monitoring the development efforts of various developers, controlling the acceptance of these developments in to base projects and maintaining version control of the whole project as well as that of the individual developer’s sub-projects, according to the vendor.

Use of the cloud also means that developers can access their Evoke app designs from both their work computers and home computers, supporting employees in being able to work from home.

Also, the administrator of the account then has the option of sharing access to that account with other people in the organization on either a temporary or permanent basis. This can include many parts of the organization from designers and developers to prospective users, management and quality control.

Evoke's use of the cloud in this way means that management and business users can be fully involved by reviewing the app design at various stages of its build.

This gives them the option of being able to pass comment and make suggestions allowing the design and development stage to becoming a trulyiterative process. This of course can only result in better apps that will more accurately reflect the organization’s actual business requirements.
