Announced today, Amazon Honeycode is a new, fully managed service that will allow users to build mobile and web applications without any programming. These applications will be tailored specifically for tasks that involve tracking data over time and notifying users of changes, routing approvals, and facilitating interactive business processes.
For this purpose, Amazon Honeycode houses a visual application builder. Essentially, the app will automate the process of building and linking three tiers of functionality—database, business logic, and user interface. To get started, you can select a pre-built template. Here, the data model, business logic, and applications are pre-defined and ready-to-use out of the box. There is also an option to import data into a blank workbook. The ability to add notifications, reminders, approvals and other actions based on conditions has been provided as well.
A preliminary setup can be completed within minutes. The resultant application can scale up to 100,000 rows in each workbook and will be free for up to 20 users. However, you'll have to pay for the additional users and storage for larger applications.
