Zühlke already has years of experience implementing low-code applications for software projects in a range of industries. These include large corporations all the way to start-ups. The partnership with Simplifier will expand this expertise. The collaboration makes good sense, particularly considering the simple integration with SAP, which supports a clean-core approach with low-code applications, as well as numerous references in the commercial production, retail and commercial sectors. Another key aspect of the partnership is the broad range of possibilities for quickly training professional developers to work adeptly with the platform, in turn enabling them to develop working applications in the span of just a few weeks.
Independent validation of the advantage of low-code
The jointly identified synergies will open up an even broader range of offerings. For example, the Simplifier platform offers Zühlke’s customers shorter time to market, faster project implementation and ongoing further development of the platform. For customers, this means a more efficient use of resources, making it possible to implement projects faster and at a lower cost. At the same time, Simplifier and Zühlke can offer prospective and current customers a more comprehensive range of services for the platform, such as the independent validation of the added value offered by taking a low-code approach for a given business case, or the shared or outsourced development of low-code applications. Zühlke is also focusing intensely on low-code adoption and citizen development so that it can advise and assist customers with the introduction of Simplifier.
Sustainable expansion of the portfolio in the area of low-code
Silvan Stich, Head of Low-Code at Zühlke, commented on the partnership: ‘The Simplifier platform allows us to leverage the strengths of the low-code approach in our customer projects in an even more targeted way. We are confident that Simplifier will enable us to expand our portfolio for low-code applications in the long term and, as a result, open up new use cases and business opportunities.’
Florian Rühl, Member of the Executive Board at Simplifier: ‘We like that Zühlke is such a global, strong and innovative partner in the development, implementation and operation of custom software solutions for companies. The partnership has allowed us to tap into new industries and expand our portfolio yet again. In future, Zühlke will be able to use our low-code platform to meet its customers’ individual needs better in the long term and roll out applications with great ease and simplicity.’
