Creating applications on time and on budget that fully meet the desired project goals, all underpinned by a relentless focus on driving value.

user experience

UX and customer experience

We examine the customer or user journey and enhance it to save time, bring additional value, and remove frustrations.



Using advanced technologies like codeless software tools, low-code plug-ins, RPA, AI, chatbots, blockchain, IoT and other emerging technologies, we find ways to extract the human from the loop to create seamless, automated processes.

Rapid application development is the driving force behind hyper-automation

What is Rapid Applications Development?

Rapid application development (RAD) is a term used to describe any form of adaptive approach that speeds up the process of creating and deploying software applications.

The problem RAD solves

Businesses are transforming their business models to embrace modern digital technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, big data, 5G telecommunications, mobile computing, virtual reality, 3D printing, the Internet of Things, software robots and hardware drones. To achieve this transformation, they require software that fills the gap between their incumbent Systems of Record and the long-tail of demand for apps needed to orchestrate their business models. The introduction of new Development Operations (DevOps) functions within large corporations is creating demand for new tools that allow a faster pace of development with ‘fail-fast’ prototyping characteristics.

Low-code tools build apps faster

Low-code development tools are declarative – that is, they enable the visual modelling of the user interfaces, business logic, algorithms and data handling that make up a typical application, without the need to describe the controlling code. Most low-code solution providers will claim their tools support enterprise-class applications. One of the reasons low-code is expected to succeed where 4GL failed is that the average business person is more technically savvy than they were 20 to 30 years ago. Another is that the applications are often deployed to cloud platforms, giving central control of performance, availability, scalability, service levels and security.

According to its latest Magic Quadrant report on the Low-Code application platforms market, Gartner suggests that by 2024, three-quarters of large enterprises will be using at least four low-code development tools for both IT application development and citizen development initiatives, and will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity.

Market size

A 2018 market report by ReportBuyer suggests that, ‘The low-code development platform market size is expected to grow from USD 4.32 billion in 2017 to USD 27.23 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 44.49% during the forecast period.’

Practically every other commercial ad seen today shows a mobile app or someone using a mobile device to do something.  IT has moved out of the back-office and now serves on the front-line of delivering customer value and service. 

To meet the needs of organizations that see technology to be a core component of their customer offer, and to automate the back-office, digital teams have had to become app innovation factories. 

The key agenda items of digital teams include:


Hyper Automation Explained

Hyper Automation describes a multi-disciplinary approach to finding the best answers to process automations.  We know that machines can process more data, more accurately than humans – but humans continue to be the best fit for any number of automation needs.

Is Your Cloud Strategy Falling Short?

A decade ago, every tech headline was pointing to the advantages of moving to SaaS apps and cloud hosting.  With a decade of learning experience (and migrations), the role of the cloud is shifting from fundamentals to incremental value.  Find out what you might still be missing from your cloud strategy.


Automating your business processes improves customer experience while optimizing operating costs.  Options on automation once centered around a headlong focus on removing the human-from-the-loop, but the maturing of project methods, tools, and cultures is resulting in a re-evaluation of how to approach process automation.

MetaNXT works to equip organizations with the designs, methods, and tools needed to make their economic engines turn.
