Softools Newsletter No. 17

Softools Newsletter No. 17

2018 is proving to be the most exciting year in IT for the last ten years.  We talk about this as the ‘perfect storm’ with four major industry disconnects happening concurrently – all enabled through technology:  1) Corporate and Public Sector adoption of a cloud-first strategy, 2) the emergence of Enterprise Application Platforms (EAP) as the solution to ‘Shadow-IT’, 3) the Internet of Things (IOT) where all parts of the business can be connected real-time, and 4) Progressive Web Applications (PWA) that can work off-line and on any device.

In this months newsletter we cover a variety of topics including a new project with a globally recognised car company, our new relationship with OE consultancy Simpler, Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things discussion and an insight into the benefits of transitioning to an Enterprise Application Platform. We also have a whole host of New Features including a bar code scanner, draw box and self-registration with verification codes among others.

The leaves are starting to turn and winter is coming (!). We started this month with our Annual Partner Day held at the Microsoft offices in Thames Valley Park and this months' newsletter will be covering off some of the exciting new features and functionality, deployments and stories covered there. Tech breakthroughs were discussed with talks on Industry 4.0 from IBM and Robotic Process Automation from Simon Turner. The big event of the day was the launch of our own new Offline capability using world-first technology. We then moved to the apps marketplace with BYO (Build Your Own) apps discussed by Reliance Energy and case studies from De-Risk followed by an insight into our own Go to Market success factors and How to Sell Softools.
