|

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

|

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...
