How agile mobile app development with Power Apps helps you adjust to a post-COVID world

2021-11-16T08:30:18-07:00By |

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a boom in the use of mobile apps. According to analytics firm App Annie, mobile app usage grew by 40% in 2020. The trend was especially strong in business applications, which were downloaded at twice the weekly rate seen in 2019. We can expect this increased reliance on mobile apps at work to persist.

2021-11-27T10:50:36-07:00By |

Every story with a superhero has a villain. Or in most cases a stock of villains that re-emerge in different guises over time. For the Joker, Penguin, and Riddler think of the ongoing challenges that come with digital transformation—for example, modernizing legacy apps and embracing remote working while tightening security.
