There is a clear business transformation happening based on the usage of mobiles, tablets and laptops. More and more people are spending time using these devices to connect and to search for information. The major challenges for companies is to connect with customers through all these devices in real time and to create campaigns that work across social media, display advertising and e-commerce.
Having reached another milestone, with the expansion of our global footprint to the U.S. where, in addition to having over 50 enterprise customers, we’re seeing a huge demand for our services, and our inclusion in Gartners Magic Quadrant as a Challenger, report there’s no better time than now to give a shout out to the community of developers, IT managers and our customers-at-large, who have made this possible!
Uber, Vimeo, ASOS, and Apple are some of the most successful disruptors in the current digital economy. These companies took an already mature market and used technology to make valuable connections with their customers. These companies did not invent a new product — they reinvented the way business is done within the economy. They knew what their consumers wanted before they realized it.
The days when creating a “mobile responsive” website and establishing “bring your own device” guidelines were enough to compete in the digital market, are GONE!
More and more, customers and employees are choosing to buy, spend, invest, and work via their phones and tablets, and very soon with gadgets. The more mobile we can be while searching, working, and shopping, the better. That trend will only continue as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence, mixed reality, and virtual reality continue to invade the public sphere.
Probably the number 1 question most of the CIOs have is about how to thrive in the digital world, how to deliver new business needs in a faster, more agile way.
The digital transformation brings tons of new opportunities, however, only those organizations who really embrace and understand how far and fast they need to transform will survive.
After 25 years developing and selling the GeneXus product, which among other things writes software, now we hear a lot of buzz regarding the significance of automatic software writing.
I‘m particularly motivated to write about this topic as a result of an article published in Info Technology and titled “Will software that writes code alter tech’s script?”. It was a translation of the original article by Richard Newton’s[*], which was published by Financial Times.
Coding is dead. Dead. At least coding as we know it.
Although we’ve been using Artificial Intelligence to automatically write and maintain code here at GeneXus since our early beginnings almost three decades ago, the world (for the most part) has not been quite ready to embrace the message about the power of automated software. But now, the time is ripe and enterprise companies around the world are ready to embrace the future. These are exciting times!
Throughout history, there have been various moments, characters and products that have dramatically changed its course.
In the world of technology, we can mention three moments that have significantly affected the way in which we interact with our surroundings and ourselves.
Many recent articles deal with digital transformation and how it will change and affect different professions and jobs.
The replacement of man’s functions with hardware + software has always been a reality, in some periods with greater significance than in others, and it is a fact that it will continue to happen in times to come.
