How Automated Testing Can Improve Performance and Efficiency of Software Development

|

Manual or Automated Testing for Your Software? No matter how skilled your Ruby, JavaScript, or PHP programmer maybe, they WILL make mistakes. Mistakes are unfortunately inevitable, especially if the application you are writing is highly complex. To ensure that these mistakes do not get through to the customer however, your development team will employ some form of testing. The problem with this is however that testing is not really adding any value to the product, it can be time-consuming and thus expensive. It can also cause significant delays to your project if the coders have to wait while the tests are completed before they are able to continue with their work. Manual testing takes time, often a huge amount of time. Imagine if you have a piece of software with multiple forms to fill in...

|

Savitha Chinnappareddy – Technical Lead, Emerging Technologies & Solutions A recent report titled COVID-19 Impact on Global E-Commerce & Online Payments – 2020 revealed that a double-digit share of online shoppers was buying more digitally due to COVID-19, and some of them adopted the practice for the first time during the outbreak.

Keeping up with trends: No-Code development platforms and Partner Programs

|

Largely stated over the internet, no-code and low-code platforms refer to tools that allow non-developers to build applications (or building logic over a ready app to extend its capabilities) by either employing little to no code. Platform users can create, iterate, and release applications in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods. Right now, we are in the middle of something of a SaaS surge, with venture investments inclining towards enterprise software. Google acquired a no-code platform, Amazon launched its own enterprise no-code platform, Microsoft already has PowerApps, its enterprise low-code platform.  Why the sudden surge?  It’s because no-code and low-code platforms are democratizing technical skill sets. Just like the APIs democratized application connectiv...
