The situation

  • As a professional developer are you experiencing any of these challenges in your job?

Exploding demand

  • Demand for mobile apps far exceeds the resources available to deliver them.

Lack of requirements

  • Many businesses lack a clear vision for application requirements, especially in the mobile space.

Multiple complex technologies

  • Enterprise platforms can be too rigid and require specialized expertise in each layer of the development stack.

The solution

  • What if you had a unified platform that allowed you to rapidly develop and deploy customs apps in a low-code environment? The FileMaker Platform combines the data, business logic, and user interface layers so you no longer need multiple complex technologies to deliver apps for mobile, cloud, and on-premise deployments.
