Cordys in the Cloud

Introduction

Cloud is one of the buzzwords today and Cordys also has a Cloud platform: The Cordys Process Factory (CPF).

So what is it?
It is a webbased integrated cloud environment for rapid Cloud Application Development. You can build forms, business processes, integration with other webservices and reporting.

How does it work?
A CPF Composer is used to design forms, business processes, business rules, using external webservices, reports and charts (PDF, HTML, MS Word, or MS Excel).
