Agile has become essential to compete with digital-born businesses and to remain relevant in a world of digital fluency. This means that the demand for experienced developers … continue reading

Hopping on the low-code locomotive

Will enterprise developers go loco for low-code, or will the whole concept someday become a no-go?  Until recently, analysts would lump low-code in with no-code and a host of tools offering some form of drag-and-drop ease that enables ‘citizen developers’ (meaning: non-developers) the means to deliver apps. But where should you start in thinking about … continue reading

In-person events: In flux and in trouble

The 2022 tech event season started out with CES trying to overcome its disastrous 2021 remote conference by going back to the in-person model. The result was another disaster because attendance was extremely low. Dell Technologies World a few months later was very well-attended but many people got sick and likely regretted their attendance. More … continue reading

Software development: Product-driven or design-led?

Most software developers work within project-oriented teams, since most companies are not startup vendors that can constantly reinvent themselves and deliver hot new products to market. Upgrades, integration and modernization projects carry forward a sizable estate of already coded software assets and third-party service dependencies. I once pondered an alternative product-driven strategy for software organizations … continue reading

Anticipating the 6G revolution

March was NVIDIA’s GTC (GPU Technology Conference), and it remains my favorite show of the year. This is because NVIDIA does far more than most in imagining what the future world will look like after deploying their latest technology. In a world of events that focus on speeds and feeds, NVIDIA focuses on why I … continue reading

3 apples in 2021 vs. 3 oranges in 2022: Predictions

You may see analyst predictions as meaningless, unless you find yourself choosing between an apple and an orange at a scarcely provisioned continental breakfast buffet. So it goes with the selection of strategies to fulfill an ever-increasing set of digital transformation requirements from a scarce IT budget. I have here the seeds of Intellyx’s 2021 … continue reading

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8: A potential game changer for developers

I attended Qualcomm’s launch of its Snapdragon 8 platform in Hawaii in December. Saying that the combination of technologies was impressive would be an understatement. The camera’s capabilities are better than a DSLR, the sound quality exceeds what most high-end sound systems can reproduce, and the gaming performance rivals gaming consoles. The peripherals and software … continue reading

5 lessons for an effective API strategy

Application programming interfaces (APIs) are widely used to connect systems and applications, and they have become an integral part of many mission-critical business capabilities. In fact, a recent Gartner survey found that 70% of organizations are using API management and mediation to build their digital platforms. However, many software leaders overlook the business potential of … continue reading

Huawei’s Harmony OS: Doing what Microsoft couldn’t

When the United States moved to sanction Huawei and deny it access to American technology, it forced Huawei to pivot away from Google and Android and embrace a next-generation operating system it had been working on quietly for years.  The disadvantage to a new OS is that it has no initial developer support; the advantage … continue reading

6 steps to upskill developers

When software engineering leaders need new skills, they often look to hire people who already have those skills. However, when it comes to modern cloud architectures and languages, those people are hard to find.  Recent Gartner research has found that there are a high number of open positions for people with advanced development skills, but … continue reading

Why hide testing from development?

The current meta-trend of hidden software testing — in which much of software testing gets pushed to shift-right, post-production validation — led me here. I’ve spent most of my life working with technology firms where testing was an unassailable virtue, and therefore, the concept of testing was constantly encouraged. Now, it seems like many companies … continue reading
