Improves developer productivity and experience in cloud-native app development using automation

When it comes to satisfying the pace and the frequency at which demand for new features must be met, traditional application development practices often hinder an organizations ability to innovate fast and stay ahead in a competitive market.

Today, many enterprises are embarking on their app development journey. Some of the key aspects that such enterprises must focus on are standardization, adherence to the best practices, developer experience and engineering automation. HCLTech has developed ADvantage Code (ADC) to address these aspects of cloud-native app development.

ADvantage Code helps enterprises by providing a boost to application development by auto-generating parts of code that needs to be written manually otherwise. Also, it auto-generates DevOps pipelines, which enables code to be continuously reviewed, tested for quality and security, and deployed on the target platform.

  • Gateway Suite: A web based application deployed on AWS, designed to automatically scans the source and target tables, transformation rules and the related metadata, extracts the logic from existing ETL or Data Pipeline jobs and catalogues the ETL Jobs based upon the associated source and target tables. It also does the conversion from legacy DB scripts to modern Data Warehouses. 
  • Sketch: A web based rapid data pipeline development and deployment application runs on top of Apache Spark deployed on AWS that accelerates data availability and accessibility. It provides different types of Sketch recipes to capture, curate, prepare, and distribute data with pre-built data pipeline patterns covering around 80% data pipeline requirements. Based on Configuration with rich standard functional library to support most of the scenarios.
  • Gatekeeper: A web based application deployed on AWS for automated data testing. Achieve zero touch automated data reconciliation and continuous testing post migration. Provides solution with extensive coverage of testing scenarios.

  • How it works
  • With the growing need to reduce infrastructure costs and access flexibility and elasticity to scale IT systems, data modernization initiatives can prove to be a game changer for enterprises. It can help streamline existing operations, respond effectively to changing market landscapes, provide personalized services and even generate new revenue streams.

    ADvantage Code (ADC) is HCLTech's approach to elevating productivity in cloud-native application development via automation. By leveraging the ADC framework, developers can perform model-driven code-generation, enable the DevOps pipelines, and deploy code on the cloud. It makes life easier for developers by helping them to bootstrap their project code and leverage standardized DevOps pipelines which in turn leads to a significant reduction in development effort.

    The development artifacts produced by ADvantage Code help developers to focus on the business logic implementation.
