In a day and age where tech is always on the up, companies are consistently developing new products and wowing us with fresh ideas. From upgrades to events, these are just a few exciting things that have been happening in IT of recent.
Series B funding
No code platform, Unqork, is known for building industrial-grade software without the use of any code whatsoever. Earlier on this month, the company closed an $80 million deal in a round of Series B funding. This money will be used towards expanding into other markets. Unqork CEO, Gary Hoberman has commented on the funding. He says, “By building on our proven financial services and insurance successes, the additional funding will allow us to help deliver more of the best enterprise no-code technology and enable fully functional application development for top companies all over the world.”
After a talk at Puppetize in the US this week, Puppet, the automation firm who hosted the event, announced they will be having a higher focus on its continuous compliance, continuous deployment and incident remediation. It believes that by doing this, it will be able to deal with multi-cloud environments on a higher level. “With cloud native architectures on the rise and infrastructure environments becoming more distributed and heterogeneous, ensuring they can scale in a secure, auditable, and efficient manner becomes more challenging,” said Yvonne Wassenaar, CEO of Puppet.
An announcement from Mendix, the world-wide low and no code firm, reveals that they are planning to hold Mendix World 2020 in Rotterdam next year. In a press release, the company recommend people to the event, “To witness how -with low code – you can address the very real business challenges of ubiquitous computing and merging of analog and digital,”
Continuing on the coding announcements, another low-code company, OutSystems has publicised its partnership with the FinTech group, CredAbility. The new team will allow the financial company to develop its wellbeing services. “We wanted to move fast and were keen to work in an iterative and agile way in order to get our product ready to launch in as short a time as possible,” said Geoff Dearden, Director for CredAbility. “I was pleased with how quickly OutSystems was able to respond and help us deliver this.”
Responding to demand
Wrike, a company that provides a versatile work management system, unveiled Wrike Analysis earlier on this month. The latest product will impact on the growing demand for end to end management that will cater to individual needs. “Wrike Analyse now makes it possible to connect projects and workflows to business KPIs, so leadership and individual contributors alike can derive insights in real-time and allocate resources to activities with the highest ROI.” Says Wrike Founder and CEO Andrew Filev.
