Amazon Web Services has launched Honeycode, a fully managed service that will enable customers to quickly build mobile and web applications without required programming, the company reported Wednesday.
“Customers have told us that the need for custom applications far outstrips the capacity of developers to create them,” said Larry Augustin, an AWS vice president. “Now with Amazon Honeycode, almost anyone can create powerful custom mobile and web applications without the need to write code.”
Honeycode will integrate a visual application builder to create interactive web and mobile applications backed by an AWS-built database. Customers may also create applications ranging from task-tracking applications for a small team to a project management system that can manage complex workflows for multiple teams or departments.
The company’s solution will sort, filter and link data together to create data-driven, interactive applications. Users can create dynamic views and dashboards that are updated in real-time as the underlying data changes.
Applications built using Honeycode will leverage the power and scale of AWS, scaling up to 100 thousand rows in each workbook, without users having to build, manage and maintain the underlying hardware and software.
Amazon has automated the process of building and linking the three tiers of functionality found in most business applications and then deploying fully interactive web and mobile applications to end users so customers can focus on creating great applications without having to write code or scale infrastructure.
Builders can also add automations to their applications to drive notifications, reminders, approvals and other actions. Once the application is built, customers easily share it with team members. Customers can also quickly and easily build multi-user, scalable and collaborative web and mobile applications.
