This is a unique way to start a blog. Normally I do an introduction about some comments related to the story I want to share. Well, I want to start this blog post with the following prediction (maybe I can get more attention from those writing code): By 2021, 40% of IT staff will be versatilists holding multiple roles, most of which will be business-related rather than technology-related.
Last month, GeneXus hosted a live webinar, Developing a Killer Strategy that Transforms Every Employee Into a Digital Innovator, which was a follow-up to a recent Meetup we hosted at our Digital Transformation NYC Meetup (How to Build Enterprise Mobile Apps for Android and iOS in 1 Hour).
As I meet with customers and prospects across the nation, insights I learn from CEOs, CIOs and CTOs, about what keeps them up at night is incredibly valuable. Whether talking to a customer in New York or in Dallas, all share concerns about the future & the role emerging technologies will play in transforming their business.
There’s an old joke about an IT manager (one of many ways it is told) who tries a demo copy of heaven and another one of hell. In the demo, folks in heaven are just laying around bored on clouds, while in hell souls are partying, golfing, swimming and having a grand-old-time.
Apple closed out 2017 with an announcement that sent shockwaves through the mobile app development-community and that is slowly reverberating throughout the business world. If your organization has an app available in the iStore, or plans to in the future, you need to be aware of how the game has changed.
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!
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.
