What Can Crowd Machine Do?
Rapid Application Development Platforms Are Not Created Equal, It’s That Simple.
Legacy modernization with Crowd Machine isn’t about deploying faster hardware, or moving onto a cloud with higher performance, and at reduced costs. Crowd Machine takes it to the next level by giving your company better business agility, endless scalability, complete business transparency and freedom from outdated dependencies. Crowd Machine becomes the centerpiece of your business applications, uniting your systems and data and giving you access and clarity you didn’t know was possible.
Crowd Machine provides intelligent cloud migration by shortening the time required to migrate your business to the cloud, and without losing any of the functionality and stability within your existing systems. Crowd Machine can take legacy applications and expose components, or in some cases, entire applications, to the cloud. In doing so, we also can extend the functionality and capability of those applications, and thus enhance productivity and the user experience.
Crowd Machine gives you the tools to create the framework that helps your business integrate mission-critical systems – such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning software (ERP), business intelligence applications (BI), payroll and human resource systems, and supply chain management (SCM). This ensures that all data and information within the organization is stored correctly, is accessible yet secure, and is transmitted accurately when called upon.
Crowd Machine replaces the need to understand and use complicated database and integration jargon, as well as multiple coding languages, with drag-and-drop functionality and natural language-based rules. By also providing the underlying infrastructure of the platform, Crowd Machine allows you to focus on the requirements of your business processes, saving you valuable time and money.
Business intelligence (BI) leverages software and services to transform data into actionable insights that inform an organization’s strategic and tactical business decisions. The analytical findings are typically presented in reports, summaries, dashboards, graphs, charts and maps to provide users with detailed intelligence about the state of the business. Crowd Machine provides the ability to access disparate data sources across the enterprise and assemble applications that deliver business insight for better decision making.
Crowd Machine enables your enterprise to integrate all of the people, apps, and data across all the systems used on a daily basis. Crowd Machine synchronizes data and applications to automate and streamline business processes, delivering real-time data visualization, enabling your business to make better decisions before the competition can respond.

What Can Crowd Machine Do For Your Business?
Do More With Crowd Machine
Best In Class No-Code Application Development & Delivery Platform
Crowd Machine allows the creation of applications across hybrid environments including on premise, public and virtual private Cloud deployments. The Crowd Machine platform includes access to Reach, an on premise secure server that enables access to databases and services located behind the firewall. Reach utilizes industry standard protocols and its own key rotation management system to ensure that on premise data is secure from unauthorized access. Reach also allows users to be authorized against LDAP compliant repositories and Microsoft Active Directory where required.
AI & Blockchain Innovation
GO Gadgets can be built to include artificial intelligence, making them super smart and self-aware. Crowd Machine also gives app developers the ability to seamlessly integrate blockchain functionality into their apps and gain the incredible power of smart contracts.
Blockchain-based smart contracts, when properly implemented, can fundamentally change how a business operates by removing the need for a trusted entity between the contracted parties. The Crowd Machine platform will soon host a suite of audited and tested blockchain functions for smart contracts and transactions that seamlessly integrate with any blockchain.
Integrate with Everything
Crowd Machine platform offers extensive integration capabilities to securely integrate to your existing enterprise databases and systems, like Oracle, SAP, Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics. IT departments can create Gadgets that connect to enterprise systems and then execute integration logic using the Crowd App Studio rule engine to retrieve and update data stored in these systems through various connections: OData, RESTful, SOAP, Web Service and XML-based. The platform provides extensive integration with on-premise and external solutions using an integration server or an API endpoint connection. The integration server enables quick and easy connection to enterprise databases and systems to exchange data, including OData support. The endpoint communication runs on SSL and is encrypted using the industry-standard AES256/SHA-256 cryptographic hash functions. Depending on the type of integration required, a further level of encryption can be applied using hashing algorithms. For integration with systems such as Salesforce, the Crowd App Studio can consume a WSDL to expose methods that can be used to generate requests to retrieve and update data. GO Gadgets connected to existing data and services can be integrated sets of smart services with highly functional components, intelligent and aware units of capability, or complete business applications.
Crowd Machine is compliant with a number of standard protocols to ensure that user, device and service provider authentication requirements are challenged according to security standards. Each tier of the Crowd Machine product employs independent security mechanisms, including multiple levels of firewalls and standard industry intrusion detection and prevention mechanisms. The Crowd Machine infrastructure is SOC Type I, II & III, and HIPAA compliant.
At its core, the platform servers are housed in a secure isolated cloud-based host with no direct access. The platform database contains application definitions and application data in siloed schemas with separate access permissions. This means that an organization’s applications, definitions, user directories, etc are siloed and that a custom security model can be created from within the Crowd App Studio to control access. A hierarchical security model similar to Active Directory can be defined to control user access within an organization. Extra layers of rule-based security can be applied below this to enable granular control over user access. This approach provides flexibility for application functionality that has been created in Crowd App Studio, as business logic can be used to determine access to Patterns (and hence data) within applications. Authentication is achieved through a custom security model which is defined. The authentication is implemented using a standard username and password model, or via integration with an external SAML2 provider, which is uniquely linked to a given profile. The model includes an administrator configurable password policy, which can be strengthened as needed (e.g. increase the frequency of password changes). Once a given profile has been authenticated, the profile is authorized to access a limited set of resources on the Network (e.g. Patterns), based on the custom security model. Authorization is achieved using OAUTH2 which governs the issuing of tokens for a given profile and then subsequently used to approve requests to access specific resources.
