The TraceLink Development Environment (TDE) is a low-code/no-code development environment that enables third party development partners to reach, and create transformational value solutions for, the hundreds of thousands of companies working together on the TraceLink Network powered by the Opus Platform. Such solutions include multienterprise and enterprise applications, add-ons, and enterprise system integrations.
Traditionally, network platforms are closed environments where a single company's applications may be deployed. Or, if the platform is open to external development, developers face immense challenges in creating world-class solutions because they aren’t provided with the critically important tools needed to develop, deploy, and manage their solutions. Such challenges often include:
- Lack of an integrated coding experience that takes full advantage of the platform and its capabilities while minimizing unnecessary infrastructure and architecture detail
- Inability to test and debug developed solutions across platform-wide and network-wide use cases
- Limited and insufficient deployment and lifecycle solution management tooling
The TraceLink Development Environment helps development partners build on top of the Opus Platform, using optimized native tooling to speed the creation of new, value-added solutions on the Opus Platform in an open, well-defined, and secure fashion, making solutions available for use by users and network members on the platform.
Speed development of new applications to meet current / emerging business opportunities or new operational requirements for your business and supply / trade partner network.
