About Simplicité

Simplicité is a low-code platform based on open technologies and universal languages like Java, SQL, and HTML that allows the development of business applications.
The aim of the Simplicité platform is not to simplify user needs, but to make the implementation of all basic or complex functionalities as simple as possible. To achieve this, it brings together in a single environment all the phases of a project's life cycle:
- Planing: Design assistance in graphic form.
- Building: Design of functions by parameterization and coding of specific functions.
- Testing: Real-time audit and usage as the design progresses.
- Deploying: Dor versioning/deploying to a cloud environment (or on-premise).
- Run/operating: Supervision of the platform, usage history, and performance monitoring.

As Simplicité is its own model, it is also possible to overload the platform itself and thus customize the native objects like users, objects, fields, processes, actions, and more to add behaviors or code. The runtime of a low-code platform is generally a black box, but with Simplicité there are many doors to see everything or customize it to your taste.


Key benefits of Simplicité

  • User experience: Simplicité generates on-the-fly menu, navigation, simple or grouped lists, composite forms, pivot tables, tree or Kanban views, tile/masonry display, social and collaborative functions, simple or full-text search, management of display preferences by a user, dashboards and graphs, editing, printing, responsive/mobile interfaces, custom themes, maps, undo/redo, etc.

  • API services: Simplicité administers the logical model of objects and physical access to data and documents, business rule management, process orchestration, session and data logging and traceability, rights and scopes management, app-store to distribute its modules, documentation, etc.

  • No-code: citizen-users (non-developers) can collaborate and build certain functionalities through visual tools such as the drag-and-drop form and object editor, and the graphical modeler of diagrams (objects, processes, states, rights, tables, etc.), and modify lists of values, online help or labels, among other things.

  • Powerful and durable technology: classic architecture for a full-stack developer, with an application server and a transactional database on the back end (generally Tomcat, Java, and SQL) and the usual web technologies on the front end (HTML/CSS, jQuery, Bootstrap) with the possibility of integrating more specific third-party components (Vue, Angular or React via Simplicité helpers to access the APIs quickly, but which may be replaced one day by more fashionable technologies)

  • Integration: Simplicité is fluent in Open API REST, Swagger, JSON, YAML and XML and natively integrates connectors to third-party services: Drive, JCloud, Google, Docusign, Stripe, Trello, Slack and it is possible to integrate one's own connectors or ask the editor to add some if they are of interest to all.

  • Development tools/DevOps: Simplicité has its own online code editor (via ACE editor) and allows connection to your favourite IDE (Eclipse, VSCode, IntelliJ or Theia), with project packaging in Maven (or Gradle) and code auditing by SonarQube. Docker images are designed for any database (HSQLDB, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, MySQL, Oracle, SQLServer) and open to the developer.

  • Security: In Simplicité, all access to data, documents, or processes is strongly enabled from the user login, with native integration of LDAP/SAML, OpenID Connect, Custom SSO, JWT tokens, and even Crowd from Atlassian. Simplicité has been extensively tested for robustness against XSS/CSRF attacks.

  • Operation: The platform supervises what it executes, i.e. the management of logs, user sessions and quotas, the crontab and the history of asynchronous tasks, mass imports of data, user feedback, monitoring, and analysis of hot performance, and clustering in a distributed architecture.

    We have used Simplicité to build 100% of our backend, from tracking items during transport and in storage to customer subscription, service delivery and invoicing. What matters the most (and what takes most of the time) is the correct definition of input/output, expected results, processes, states for objects and relations between the database table. Once this is done, it is quite easy to get the result. We did not want to invest in a developper "in house" to do that so Simplicité has done the application for us entirely. The result was quick: about one month after the database design, we had 95% of features done. The evolution is surprisingly easy: adding a new state or field for a customer status takes only 10 minutes test included. We were ready from idea to use in 3 months overall. We had almost no bugs from day 1 which is something that amazed us in comparison with a solution built from scratch that we experienced before. The support is great: day and night, we were able to have competent people to make the changes for the evolution of our needs. Overall, we highly recommend Simplicité as an application build (or "backend-in-a-box").

    Pros

    - fast to implement
    - cost control
    - no bugs
    - easy to modify/upgrade/adapt to changing needs

    Cons

    Not easy to find to developper with the required skills to do the app or manage it in house. We had to rely on Simplicité and this increases the cost

    Productivity : effort reduced by a factor of 2 or 3, compared to classical JEE webapp development
    Agility : no need to mock-up any more, use real-time prototyping instead!
    Maintainance : as the platform is updated frequently, our apps are more up-to-date than before
    Reliability : no need to re-develop recurrent fonctionalities, it's in the platform
    Fonctional richness: when a new functionality is added to the platform, it's available in all apps

    Pros

    The relational data model (1 business object = 1 database table).
    The possibility to choose between cloud and on-premise.
    The "instance manager": a magic DevOps/PaaS feature that allows to create/update/delete any execution environment (ie Tomcat+webapp+database) in one-click (or one command).

    Cons

    The community support is poor, as the community is relatively small.
    Although the users don't complain that much, the ergonomy and user experience can still be improved.

    I have used simplicity software to have developped and maintened a simple intranet application a with few potential users (about 30). Each year, I pay for licences and maintenance + a few days of service (5). and this spares precious time for our undermanned programming and exploitation teams . I also have most of the evolutionary and correctives tests run directly between the end user and the simpicite team by this deal, which appears to be a very effcient time/cost effective deal.
