How low-code solutions can fuel energy sector transformation

2021-03-09T23:35:44-07:00By |

These are difficult times for the oil and gas sector. There are several reasons for this, including the current economic downturn and longer-term decrease in petroleum demand. And they’ve all culminated in what Deloitte are calling the “great compression” for the industry. Deloitte also states that US energy companies laid off around 14% of their permanent employees during 2020, and their research indicates that 70% of those jobs may not return by the end of 2021. With that in mind, it looks like oil and gas faces the imperative to do more with less – and low-code solutions have the power to help the industry achieve that.     Taming the big-project beast By their very nature, organizations in the [...]

2021-03-07T23:05:26-07:00By |

For as long as the “billable hours” model has existed, professional services firms have faced the imperative to do more with less. That’s because when a client is paying for your time, they want that time (and therefore their money) to be spent as cost-effectively as possible. Otherwise, the line of thought runs, they’ll get somebody else to do the job just as well but quicker and cheaper.   In 2021, “doing more with less” hinges on your willingness and ability to drive digital transformation and adopt new game-changing tech. And because you want to be that “somebody else” – not the firm getting ditched – I’ll explore how to do that. In this case by harnessing the possibilities of low-code development [...]

The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new challenges to the already ailing healthcare industry. However, technologies such as Microsoft Power Apps hold the key to solving many of its problems, so I’d like to explore how digital transformation in healthcare has the potential to be the powerful pick-me-up healthcare needs.    First of all, though, a little background. Let’s take a look at the charts.   Recent history and prognosis Even before the pandemic, the healthcare industry was running on fumes. Healthcare costs have been steadily increasing, with quality care becoming less affordable and accessible for many patients.   These strains have been felt by healthcare professionals, too. According to 2020 research from Medscape, as much as 42% of physicians reported being burned out. And the industry has also been drowning in a rising [...]
