We’ve seen FileMaker used hundreds of ways to develop mission-critical applications. In fact, we’ve helped many of these companies build them.
But where we’ve been able to make a big difference to these businesses is in our modernization services. Technology advances are occurring at a breakneck speed, and companies are expected to keep up. We strive to help clients beyond upgrading to the latest version of FileMaker. Our team aims weave modern features and functionality into the applications themselves.
How to Modernize Your FileMaker App with Carafe
1. Assess Your FileMaker Application.
While we encourage you to go check out Carafe, this comes with a big caveat – don’t start implementing things right away. First, you need to assess your current application’s infrastructure and functionality. Find its weak points and outline your modernization goals.
3. Install Carafe and Configure Your Web Viewers.
5. Enhance Your User Interface.
6. Extend FileMaker’s Functionality.
With Carafe, you can take FileMaker beyond the platform’s traditional capabilities. Consider leveraging D3.js or Chart.js, to create advanced data visualizations and interactive dashboards. Or, integrate APIs to fetch and update data from external sources. This enables real-time data integration and synchronization.
7. Leverage Modern Web Technologies.
8. Test and Deploy.
9. Embrace Continuous Improvement.
Modernization is an ongoing process; no application is truly ever finished. Give any application a few years of stagnation, and it will be working on outdated technology. That’s just how quickly the digital landscape is evolving. With Carafe, you can easily update your integrations as new libraries and frameworks emerge. Leverage the latest trends and technologies to maintain a competitive advantage for your business.
