DashJoin is a German low-code and open-source platform for the rapid development of browser-based apps, so-called DashJoins. Specialist departments can create the DashJoins themselves as a management app in a few days and use them widely in the company at short notice. There is investment security, as there is no binding to a provider and the code is freely available, promises DashJoins GmbH. On GitHub, a community is working on the code, which is constantly improving.
“Basically, almost everyone can create their own DashJoin very quickly and IT-compliant,” says DashJoin Managing Director Dr. Ulrich Walther. Users need basic knowledge about queries and data models, which DashJoin teaches through tutorials on YouTube, GitHub et cetera, and which anyone can acquire. The components, according to the manufacturer, include semantics that bridge data silos, a universal database frontend, an intuitive query editor, and a layout designer for out-of-the-box visualization.
The scalable DashJoins can be created flexibly and pragmatically: connect data sources, create query catalog, define dashboards and layout, use the portal app with complete role-based access control and use automated processes. Even machine learning is available out-of-the-box, according to the manufacturer.
A fully managed cloud DashJoin (PaaS) costs 99 euros and 5 euros per user, each month. The core is freely available as open-source and so DashJoin can also be used free of charge via a private cloud. Here are the links to DashJoin:
