Customers tend to think in the lines of Queen’s all-time greatest hit. This is primarily true about those who have been lagging behind in deploying cognitive solutions and are now buried deep under exabytes of structured and unstructured data they cannot make use of. So they demand immediate solutions that would enable them to mine these data to derive insights – and from you to speed up solution development and delivery. There’s no surprise there. Their hesitation cost them their market edge and they’re in need of an immediate bandage to stop the bleed and catch up with their competitors.

According to the established project manager’s number one rule, one can pick two from the “fast, good and cheap” trio. The solution can thus never fully meet all the client’s requirements – it cannot be good, it cannot be cheap, and it cannot be delivered quickly at the same time. Or can it?

Quick-starting development

The two key characteristics of a good tool to support development speed are deployment time and development time. These two criteria define the success and meaningfulness of a solution.

Cutting-down on deployment time

Deployment time is the sum of time needed for the installation, configuration and production deployment of the solution. For a tool to meet this criterion, it needs to offer easy deployment, simple and intuitive configuration and near-instantaneous user adoption. And Connect Bridge is designed to provide all these benefits and to enable you to start developing in a matter of hours.

It supports simple and straightforward local installation, as well as hybrid and a worry-free cloud deployment, all in a matter of minutes. Its setup is straightforward and easy, offering intuitive point-and-click configuration interface to get all the target systems connections up and running. And when it comes to user adoption, it has no match on the market, as it only requires elementary SQL skills.

We are so assured of its simplicity that we don’t hesitate to offer complimentary training to anyone, knowing it will only take a couple of hours, tops. We’ll also take care of maintenance and upgrades, so that they don’t hinder your development progress.

Cutting-down on development time

Obviously, development time is the time it takes to develop a custom solution using the development support tool. For us, for such a tool to be viable and meaningful, the time savings must be significant. Connect Bridge offers to save hundreds of man-hours on integration development. And that’s, we believe, significant savings. It enables you to accelerate development and time-to-market by skipping the most time-consuming and resource-hungry development processes by offering to eliminate the need to develop a custom integration solution.

Connect Bridge helps you seamlessly and immediately work with data in diverse target systems, freeing your programmers from tedious integration tasks with a 90-percent decrease of coding efforts. Being a pre-tested, out-of-the-box solution with unparalleled reliability and stability, it eliminates bugs in integration code, saving you the hassle of bug fixing.

The end result is that you can delight your customers by promptly providing them a robust, reliable and affordable solution, thus improving their loyalty, and your bottom line.
