Quite similar to the software development cycle, robotic process automation (RPA) is a strategic approach to automation. It requires thorough planning, defining timelines, managing resources, understanding compliances, and a lot more. That is why, RPA is considered as a journey, which comprises of 4 major steps for its successful implementation.
Software Reliability Engineering and DevOps are two sought after disciplines, trying to maintain a balance between the software engineering and operations team. Since both approaches seem to sort similar problems, there is confusion if they are similar or can be used interchangeably.
“Okay, Google! Book me a taxi from my place to Oxford street.” “Alexa, Order a large Veg Exotica from Nick’s Pizza.”
In the voice-first era, performing a web search, ordering food, playing music, setting alarms, getting real-time traffic updates doesn’t require tapping the screen. Thanks to the Voice User Interfaces (VUIs) that are offering intuitive modes to set human-machine communication.
The modern approach to software development needs more focus on application than infrastructure. This has lead to the introduction of new technologies and platforms that can help in the auto-management of infrastructure. One of the popular approaches that has gained grounds in this concern is software containers.
Location is the next big thing on mobile. Walmart, McDonald’s, Macy, Red Bull, Eat, Urban Outfitters, and many other successful brands are realizing the opportunities that location-based marketing brings in and are cash in on it.
Sci-fi has been an inspiration for some amazing modern-day innovations. 3D holograms (Start War), 3D printing (Star Trek), Video calling (Thunderbirds). In fact, your favorite sci-fi character J.A.R.V.I.S. is the inspiration behind one of the sought-after innovations today- chatbots.
Developed by Tony Stark, J.A.R.V.I.S. was an intelligent bot that responds to the user’s thoughts. Connected to global information networks, it used holograms as an interface to communicate with Stark and give him access to anything he needs or wants.
It is not the strongest of the businesses that survive, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change. Believing in this theory of evolution, businesses are leveraging digitization, transforming the way legacy systems and operations are managed.
Building a software application is a complex process, comprising of a number of elements of which coding is just a small part. In general, a software engineering cycle looks something like this:
The insurance industry is overwhelmed with tedious clerical tasks that adversely impact routine operations, such as claim processing, underwriting, policy servicing, etc. As a result, there are delays, inaccuracies, and backlog, which needs to be settled timely, without violating the business regulations.
Software development methodologies have come a long way. From Spiral, Waterfall to Agile, there is a significant shift in team roles, ceremonies, planning, and delivery activities.
