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. HCL 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.
