DSI Platform Update Includes App Analytics, Configurable Apps

Kansas City, Mo. – DSI announced today a significant release, version 8.5 of the DSI Platform. The new release introduces DSI App Analytics and includes enhancements to the configuration and design of mobile apps.

The update introduces DSI App Analytics, which delivers critical real-time insights into how apps perform and are being used in the real world. Leveraging data from app instrumentation, devices and networks, as well as enterprise systems, including application servers, databases and back office systems, DSI App Analytics can be used to detect and diagnose performance issues and track user behavior across geographies, devices and users.

“Without app analytics, business owners and operations personnel are flying blind with respect to how their apps are performing, as well as how—and if—their apps are being used,” said Matt McGraw, President and CEO, DSI. “DSI App Analytics gives app managers, developers and operations staff the real-time insights necessary to identify and resolve usage and operational issues, increasing app adoption, improving the user experience and increasing the ROI of mobile deployments.”

Additionally, DSI App Analytics provides a granular look into user experience. In-app usage metrics and behavioral trends give operational and development personnel information to provide continuous app improvements. With these insights, they can optimize not only mobile apps, but also the environment in which apps run.

The 8.5 release also includes enhancements to the DSI Platform’s rapid application development environment. The update allows business analysts and developers to easily change the logic or appearance of apps through the addition of Configuration Elements. Often organizations must adapt their processes and business execution to meet the operational or regulatory needs of multiple sites, geographies, business units or customers. With the introduction of Configuration Elements, the same suite of apps can be deployed to multiple organizations or lines of business, configured differently for each.

Configuration Elements are dynamic, allowing app behavior and appearance to be modified for independent organizational units or specific sets of users without the need to modify and republish apps. This greatly speeds deployment and reduces management overhead.

In another improvement to app design and development, DSI Platform, version 8.5, includes expanded capabilities within DSI’s Wire framework for designing rich consumer-grade mobile apps. Wire is now more deeply integrated into the platform for better development productivity and greater reuse.

The addition of a plug-in for the popular Sketch UI design tool accommodates rapid app design prototyping using tools that are already a part of your designers’ daily workflow. By using the plug-in, app designers can create a front-end prototype in a fraction of the time, then turn that design over to the developers or business analysts to develop deeper business logic and connect to back-end systems.
