15th November 2019 – What is new in tech this week?

This week, ahead of the general election, the labour party announced that if its party gets in power, it will make broadband free for the nation. Political preference aside, this shows how much of an impact that tech has on our daily lives. Because if politicians are implementing it into their policies, it must be a big deal.  So, let’s take a look at what is new in tech, and who knows what it holds for the future.

SQL prompt tool

Redgate has released an updated version of its SQL prompt tool, meaning errors in code can be auto-fixed and developers’ speed of coding has the potential to increase. “Not sure what voodoo your developers put behind this but it saves me a lot of scrolling and clicking.”, says Piotr Lipski, Business Intelligence Consultant at Bearing Point on talking about the new tool.

Analysing data becomes easier

A free multi-platform interface to visualise, manipulate, and analyse data within a specific environment has been developed by Redis. “Additionally, as modern microservices architectures adopt technologies such as Kubernetes, automated cluster recovery provides precise, repeatable steps to ensure data resiliency and minimum downtime for our customers’ applications, even in severe conditions like cluster quorum loss,” said Alvin Richards, Chief Product Officer at Redis Labs.

Doubling capabilities

Software firm Dynatrace has doubled the capability of its software intelligence platform to meet growing multi-cloud environments. “As we expand our digital footprint, our enterprise cloud environment is continually growing more dynamic and complex,” said Reinhard Weber, Senior Product Manager, SAP CX.

Putting developers first

Snyke, a company that claims to put developers first, has created a scalable approach of fixing capabilities found in Kubernetes and container images. “As the adoption of containers continue to skyrocket, our research shows that containers often introduce hundreds of vulnerabilities from open source dependencies and there is no native safeguard in place to find and fix them,” said Guy Podjarny, Co-founder and President, Snyk.

Expanding AI to developers

A firm that specialises in AI, Testim, has expanded its codeless AI-based software to developers. Oren Rubin, founder and CEO of Testim. “The Dev Kit builds on our commitment to make testing more collaborative and open as possible so that teams can deliver quality software faster. Customer feedback has already been exceptional and we’re eager to deliver this Dev Kit to market.”

With all this in mind, it will be exciting to see how else tech will be incorporated into the everyday lives of people next week.
