Modyo key concepts
Below you will find a brief explanation of some of the key concepts related to the Modyo Platform.
Modyo implements an easy-to-manage Multi-Site architecture. From a single account, you can create multiple public or private sites.
You can even go further and use Modyo to develop a deeper understanding about your digital customers throughout your different sites.
Customers interact on sites depending on context
Modyo provides you with different authentication mechanisms, from OpenID Connect to OAuth2 and Google, so you can easily authenticate your customers.
Clients can interact in different sites and in different contexts, maintaining the same central profile that facilitates administration tasks.
Both CMS and Headless CMS
Modyo Content allows you to create and publish content. You can add fields to define custom content structures easily. Modyo Channels allows you to work with HTML templates and reusable Front End components called widgets.
All structured content that you publish generates an equivalent JSON file that can feed any other site or application. These are served through the Content API.
An integration platform
Modyo is designed to facilitate the creation of digital solutions integrated with the central systems of enterprises. With this in mind, we keep our focus on facilitating the development of widgets and their integration with APIs.
The widget generator helps Back and Front End developers work together to create digital experiences connected to APIs. Our governance model allows digital teams to easily preview and publish their work to their digital channels in record time.
Widgets vs Portlets
Most of our competitors chose the old portlets model (server-side development model). This is slower and requires publishing to production every time a change is made, making digital work more complex.
Modyo bases its development model on widgets and a widget generator that tracks every change in a version control system. Digital work is easy to audit, move on to the next stage and publish so that it is quickly available to your customers.
Our widget generator
The widget generator enhances the digital experience by making Front End development easy to handle, quick to send to production and easy to audit, providing greater security and fulfillment of your key objectives.
Prefabricated widgets for financial services
Modyo Banking provides prefabricated financial widgets to accelerate the development of your retail and wealth management banking experiences.
A separate license model applies to Modyo Banking.
Liquid Markup and APIs
Modyo uses Liquid Markup within the platform to give Front and Back End developers a rich language that allows them to add more functionality when building digital experiences. Liquid Markup is used by leading companies to easily add more logic to the Front End code.
APIs enhance our platform and make it easier to build solutions.
Prepared for the future: PWAs
Progressive Web Applications will be the future of the Web, as they improve the way applications are distributed to end users and give the Web browser more prominence as an execution platform. Within each channel in Modyo, you can control the definitions of manifest.json and the Service Workers, fundamental technical enablers when implementing PWAs.
Security, Governance and Agility
Modyo has an architecture with integrated version control of all the published code. This allows you to easily review the code changes between one version and another of your digital products before publishing.
Agility occurs when you have a greater predictability of your team's capacity, following a model that balances governance and agility. When Team Review is activated in the platform within Channels, two people (a Reviewer and an Approver) can change the status of digital resources to "Published" through a formal, easy-to-handle process. You can monitor your team's capacity within Insights.
