Data migrations are always headaches. At the same time do transformations demand the use of new technologies being tested and implemented. Why not combining these two challenges?
The Chills low code backend solves two challenges in one solution. It simplifies and visualises your data migration, showing every step in the process for both business and IT. Parallel do you build first time experience using low code technology without becoming dependent on it. When low code matches your expectations, customers gradually expand their low code backend use. They learn how it works, how to implement fast changes in data processing, and transform their organisation. The result is an agile organisation which adapts faster and continues to match new market demands.
How Chills takes care of your data migration
The data migrating plan is made as usual. This time the technical migration is not written in hard coding but build using low code. Execute a test, migrate a data sample to verify if the created data flow performs according to plan. Using a low code backend enables a must faster and flexible Extract Transform & Load (ETL) process. For example, data can be divided over different databases, combined or structured, visible and understandable for IT, the business and auditors. Chills also provides a document with the process steps as a quality check and for later reference.

Start a pilot and scale up to a new low code Backend
Implementing a new technology directly impacting the core of your organisation is a huge step. Especially since its benefits will only be maximised when organisational changes also occur. The impact is huge, and therefore a step-by-step approach is strongly advised. But not embracing new technologies will result in either loss of market share or bankruptcy due to a too high-cost base, since digitalisation is increasing IT budgets significantly.
Below the proposed steps to implement low code in your organisation.
As described in the introduction, discover the Chills benefits and if it delivers value for your organisation by using it as a one-time low code migration tool., A data migration is a very clearly defined task with input and an expected end result, simplifying the Chills evaluation. When successful decide if you want to use Chills permanent but still limited.
Automation and Integration
Customers migrate a limited number of integrations and automations into the low code backend. Data integrations with other systems or applications become operational in the Chills backend. These integrations are still available in hard coded format and serve as a back-up. The (Robot Process) Automations are also created in the Chills backend and the original hard coded RPA’s also serve as back-up.
Full Backend use
Organise all dataflows in the Chills low code backend. This includes the integration of external databases and for example Internet of Things (IoT) databases. The data sets are created in Chills and pushed to dashboards, reports, analytical tools and artificial intelligence.
Maximising the Chills benefits impacts your organisation. Business and IT collaborate now on a mutual platform and speak the same language. Rebuilding your organisation around data is the real digitalisation enabling management to be more effective but, bear in mind “Digitalisation requires you to change your mindset, how you think about your customers and core business".
Our strategic roadmap includes the integration of other technology in the Chills low code solution. These technologies make future work more dynamic, interesting and exciting. After vigorous testing these technologies will be directly available for our all customers. To disclose one element, future customers will operate Chills independently and are in full control, even at database level.
· Reducing budgets for hard code programming is an immediate benefit when using the Chills low code backend
· Following the step-by-step approach and being able to advance or abort Chills whenever you see fit is a great advantage
· The Chills roadmap has two non-disclosed sections making our customers leaping ahead of their competition
· The further customers are, learning and adopting Chills low code technology, the more secure their future is
