The Webalo No-Code application building process
Hands-on Application Generation with Webalo
The following video examples will guide you through the process of building applications, KPI’s, Dashboards and WorkSpaces with Webalo.
This program parallels the Webalo Training Lab Certification Course available to anyone wishing to become a Certified Webalo admin.
All of the exercises here are shown as videos of actual applications and graphical elements being built. It is meant as a deep level introduction to the Webalo system and technology.
Example 1 – Connect to a Predix app to mobilize global manufacturing plants data
In this example you will learn how easy it is to configure an app that uses a RESTful API to a Predix service called ‘plantservice’. Once configured, we will add KPIs that will be presented on the device which can activate an IOS push notification that triggers when there is a change of the severity to the RED range. The KPI’s presented on the home screen will allow us to drill down into the tabular view of the data as we’ll see at the end of this video.
Example 2 – Adding charts to the Predix app to provide alternate views of the data
In this example we’ll show the process for building graphical layers onto result sets of applications within the Webalo client. Once constructed, these charts can then be made available to end users or end users can create their own. This is an example of a bar chart, later on in the sessions we’ll see other types of charts being built.
The four types of charts Webalo currently supports: Bar, Line, Pie, Stacked Bar and Scatter.
Example 3 – Building a KPI dashboard
In this example we will generate a KPI dashboard that will also include the chart from the Plant Service Table app. Dashboards can be customized to show any view of the enterprise desired. Each tile on dashboards can be built as a tile, a gauge or a donut. All KPI severity settings will be displayed on KPI’s shown in dashboards and all charts included in the dashboards retain their interactivity.
Example 4 – Connect to a SQL Database to map plant location
In this example, we will see how admins configure a task using the database connector. Webalo provides connectivity to any DB that has a JDBC driver. This example utilizes our SQL Server connector. We will present the result of the app as a map and then learn how to create a workflow by linking the map application to the original task.
Example 5 – Building a second Database app to access Plant Line Equipment
This example reinforces the use of the Database Connector and linking process introduced in Example 4. We will re-use the SQL connecter but this time our query returns a list of all equipment for a particular plant. We’ll then create a workflow by lining this app back to Plant Service Table app (Example 1).
Example 6 – Implementing the Webalo UX with static Excel reports
Webalo provides an automated method by which Admins can build interactive mobile and desktop applications based of the ubiquitous Excel spreadsheet. In this example we’ll highlight the Webalo capabilities that let us build dynamic, interactive graphical views of the report.
Example 7 – Build multi-layer graphical view of the report app
Utilizing the Webalo charting engine we’ll show how easy and intuitive it is to build multiple charts from one set of data. This feature allows end users to get a deeper visual clue into what the data represents.
Example 8 – Working with the Webalo WorkSpace
New desktop client (WorkSpace) gives end users the ability to drag and drop the items to create customized working environments.
Users can open multiple frames in the WorkSpace including KPI and chart dashboards and apps which can then be ran side by side.
All panes on the WorkSpace can be moved, resized, and closed. Also, dashboards can be maximized to show full screen mode.
