No-Code Decision Intelligence to Catalyze Digital Innovation

Caner Taşkın

CTO, ICRON
The pandemic has triggered faster change in business and information technology than ever. Digitalization of business processes has increased end-to-end visibility of operations, and has paved the way for new opportunities such as fusion of manufacturing, retail and logistics across the supply chain. The distinction between planning and execution has started to become blurry as businesses embrace uncertainty and re-think their operations with a fresh customer-centric perspective. A critical success factor for the next years will be organizations' ability to implant technology within the business.
Faced with an ever-growing demand for digital innovation and shorter-than-ever timelines, technology leaders are seeking ways to improve delivery while mitigating the impact of skill shortages fueled by the great resignation. Next generation no-code decision intelligence software provides a solution to this challenge by enabling business units to produce technology while ensuring that IT maintains corporate governance and acts as a force multiplier.
