What is Magic xpa Application Platform?

Magic xpa Application Platform is a mobile development platform that is designed to enable organizations to simplify and manage every aspect of their application development process.

Magic xpa Application Platform Benefits

Some of the ways that organizations can benefit by deploying Magic xpa Application Platform include:

  • Decrease time needed for application production and refinement.

  • Allows developers to be far more productive than they would be otherwise. Various features, such as Magic xpa Application Platform’s drag-and-drop capability, allow developers to worry less about the more technical aspects of designing the applications and have more time to design the best possible application. 
  • Ease of use. Magic xpa Application Platform is a low-code application development platform. This means that developers do not need to have extensive programming knowledge to create applications. Solutions of this type are far more accessible to the general employee of an organization than a program that is code-heavy. Fewer resources need to be spent training users to employ Magic xpa Application Platform than would be true of other similar platforms. Organizations increase their overall productivity when the process of application development becomes something that even those employees who are not the most technically savvy can take part.

Reviews from Real Users

Magic xpa Application Platform is a solution that beats out the competition in a number of areas.  Two major advantages are the way that it simplifies the application management process and its scalability. It greatly eases the work that developers and administrators do by providing all of the tools that they need to meet their objectives. Additionally, users never have to worry about running out of development capacity in their digital environment. Magic xpa Application Platform can scale up and provide developers with the capacity to design and create their applications in the way that best meets their needs. 

Per H., the CEO of Mass Marketing Software AB, writes, “The solution makes the managing and adapting of the software very easy. When it comes to the application's service, mistakes can easily be resolved. This shortens the time it takes to progress from an idea to a new function.”

He also writes, “The solution is highly scalable, allowing one to use very large databases and systems.

Magic xpa Application Platform was previously known as uniPaaS.

Makes it easy to manage and adapt software
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution makes the managing and adapting of the software very easy."
  • "Support is very bad."

What is our primary use case?

I use the latest version and its predecessor. 

We use the solution in respect of membership organizations which are in charge of memberships, subscriptions and donations. 

How has it helped my organization?

The solution makes the managing and adapting of the software very easy. When it comes to the application's service, mistakes can easily be resolved. This shortens the time it takes to progress from an idea to a new function. 

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable feature involves its ability to integrate well with Oracle, a product we have also been using. 

What needs improvement?

The solution is complex and has a long learning curve. I am not referring to its initial setup, which is very simple, but its use. 

Support is very bad. The main focus is placed on their own customers, big banks and big insurance companies, so those, like us, who are independent software vendors, are ignored. 

While I have tentative, though not definite, plans to increase the usage, the solution suffers from certain weaknesses, such as its essential lack of an internet web interface, a feature I really want. 

I rate the solution as a nine out of ten, since everything about it is good, save for the internet connectivity.

Everything having to do with the internet is underperformed, which is not good. This is my main issue with the solution.

The licensing is too costly. The runtime cost is very expensive, especially in respect of a big server with many clients. So too, the development tool is expensive, as is the yearly maintenance cost. 

While the solution is perfect for one who wishes to make local, standalone solutions on a Windows network or computer with an Oracle database, it is not well suited for internet-or-cloud-based distributed systems.

621,703 professionals have used our research since 2012.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the latest version of Magic xpa Application Platform for around two years, but an earlier version since the mid-nineties. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is highly scalable, allowing one to use very large databases and systems.

We have tentative, though indefinite, plans to increase the usage. 

How are customer service and support?

Support is very bad. The main focus is placed on their own customers, big banks and big insurance companies, so those, like us, who are independent software vendors, are ignored.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use Oracle, in addition to Magic xpa Application Platform.

Prior to using Magic xpa Application Platform, in the late eighties-early nineties, we had our own tool which was made by some of our programmers. Their ideas were really good. Then. I discovered Magic xpa Application Platform, with which those same ideas were implemented. So. we used C++ and made all the tools our own. 

We did not compare Magic xpa Application Platform to another product prior to going with it. 

How was the initial setup?

The solution is very easy to install. 

The period from installation, through configuration, and until use takes around a half-an-hour. 

What about the implementation team?

I handled the setup on my own. 

I handle the maintenance on a part time basis. Maintenance is also one of Magic's strengths, software maintenance being done with ease. 

What was our ROI?

In spite of the solution's high cost, we see a very large return on our investment. It allows one to develop extremely fast and make specific customized solutions to fit the bill of each customer with tremendous simplicity. As such, the solution may be worth its high expense.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing is too costly. The runtime cost is very expensive, especially in respect of a big server with many clients. So too, the development tool is expensive, as is the yearly maintenance cost.

There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fee. 

In spite of the solution's high cost, we see a very large return on our investment. It allows one to develop extremely fast and make specific customized solutions to fit the bill of each customer with tremendous simplicity. As such, the solution seems worth its high expense. 

What other advice do I have?

I have around 15 users.

I rate Magic xpa Application Platform as a nine out of ten, since everything is really good about it save for its internet connectivity.
