Help development teams to focus on interesting, business-driving development tasks

The IBM Industry Solutions Workbench is an augmented application engineering suite built to accelerate design & development of enterprise-grade cloud solutions. It provides dedicated development tools such as standardized design tools, codified best practices, automated code generation and auto documentation, an open environment, and many more that help development teams to increase the level of automation - from design to development to deploy.

The product introduces a unique approach to the market, by starting earlier in the development process and providing dedicated tools to standardize the design of modern solutions. It provides a collaborative design environment, in which experts and developers can come together to iteratively transform the requirements into machine-readable design models.

Furthermore, the IBM Industry Solutions Workbench allows to standardize and automate industry best practices as well as internal expertise. This expertise can be transformed into codified, and shareable solution patterns which can be accessed and reused across all development teams.

Once the design has been modelled and the right solution patterns selected, the product automatically generates up to 70% of the needed code. Development teams only need to add certain code such as the business logic. Meaning, the Workbench helps the teams to shift their focus towards building value-creating, business driving code, increasing productivity, efficiency and developer happiness, all while reducing costs and development risks.

IBM Industry Solutions Workbench consists of the following components
