Low-Code Platform Adoption Gets a Boost from Digital Transformation
"When asked just about low-code platforms in May 2018, only 23% of 3,228 developers surveyed worldwide by Forrester were using them, but another 22% planned to do so in the next year. The growth predicted in that survey appears to have come to fruition according to the more recent OutSystems data. Another survey of 254 IT and business decision makers responsible for digital transformation initiatives at large enterprises, conducted by Forrester on behalf of Appian, found that among 84% have implemented a low-code development tool or platform to handle a portion of application development. While this is close to the Evans Data finding, the adoption rate would likely be lower if it was only asked of smaller companies that do not have digital transformation initiatives."

What the Marriott Breach Says About Security
"For companies, this principle means accepting the notion that it is no longer possible to keep the bad guys out of your networks entirely. This doesn’t mean abandoning all tenets of traditional defense, such as quickly applying software patches and using technologies to block or at least detect malware infections."

How WhatsApp Destroyed A Village
"The Indian government, however, had been hoping for more: It had asked for WhatsApp to develop tools to help trace the origin of messages, ostensibly to help authorities hunt down the creators of the fake videos.

Carl Woog, a spokesperson for WhatsApp, provided the following statement to BuzzFeed News: “We believe that building ‘traceability’ into WhatsApp would undermine end-to-end encryption and the private nature of WhatsApp creating the potential for serious misuse. As we go forward, WhatsApp remains committed to working with others in society on the challenge of misinformation though we will not weaken the privacy protections we provide.”

Avoid the Spreadsheet Swamp with a Low-Code approach - by @dt
"Why do we let ourselves navigate in to this swamp without that mode of thinking? This is where a new category of applications, called Low-Code platforms, is springing up to provide a 21C, more safe, more secure, cloud native solution to these ad-hoc needs that every organisation is faced with. This is an emerging space, and we’ll be looking at it more over the coming months."

Microsoft Teams and Slack point to the future of collaboration - by @dt
"Slack’s success highlights a key problem for our existing collaboration software options. They are more difficult to use than they should be. On top of that, the digital workplace is a mess. Alongside whatever we use for team collaboration, we access a whole host of disparate corporate systems with differing interfaces to get the job done. Slack has the ease of use and frictionless set up of the consumer apps we all used to on our smartphones and tablets."

Slack and the New Model for Business Process Software - by @mgboydcom
Beginning life as an internal messaging app for an internal development project, Slack has quickly become one the most prominent messaging apps used today. The momentum is moving beyond Slack itself, as a plethora of third-party companies are building out new functionality based on Slack, in effect turning the work chat app into a platform for running business processes. Startups with a focus on providing developer tools, in particular, are seeing that in order to gain market traction, they need to integrate or otherwise leverage Slack.
