Low-Code, No-Code, AI and ML
Automation and AI will never replace us.
However, certain functions of work can benefit from automation by removing the tedious, time-consuming, and repetitive tasks that we are all faced with on a day-to-day basis. By introducing automation of work in areas where it makes sense, businesses can minimize the extent of context switching – the process of switching back and forth between applications – and provide more uninterrupted time to the workforce for increased focus on high-value work. Work Automation contributes to work-life balance by minimizing the volume of tech-related stressors and digital distraction and guides modern workforce engagement towards meaningful work.
Legacy applications challenge cloud.
As businesses shift to cloud services, applications can serve as roadblocks to successful migration. Businesses tend to overcome legacy application challenges by considering a simple lift-and-shift approach, rehosting applications from on-premises to cloud. Though this requires little upfront effort and provides quick time to value, there is little innovation realized as the applications are unable to take full advantage of cloud capabilities.
Consumer experiences demand change.
Leaders know they need to provide employees with a simple and consumer-like application experience, which can provide a competitive edge in retaining and attracting talent. Yet with the prevalence of legacy applications, point solutions, and potentially complex software-as-a-service stacks, delivering an intuitive experience and surfacing valuable work is a challenging task. Many initiatives to replatform, rearchitect, or refactor applications never even get off the ground.
Development is not always the answer.
86% of IT decision-makers say the biggest challenge to digitally transform their business is too few software developers. To overcome shortage in talent, businesses will continue to add complexity by introducing middleware or complex integrations to create the illusion of transformation. Though the experience may be partially improved, the burden on operations and risk of interoperability challenges increases immediately. Lipstick.
We are Citizen Developers.
Our knowledge is limited to the platforms in which we already excel in – Citrix Cloud and the Workspace Platform; and Microsoft Azure and PowerApps. Leveraging native capabilities of no-code and low-code platforms, we can curate meaningful, useful, and highly intuitive workflows and microapps to streamline business processes that integrate with the applications you already own. And we do this significantly faster and more cost effective than traditional software development.
Microapps and Microservices
Using Citrix Workspace Platform, low-code microapp creation helps build focused experiences, actions, and workflows and deliver them within the same platform employees use daily, Citrix Workspace. With native integration for many software-as-a-service solutions, time to value is quick with minimal effort and little disruption or re-investment to existing applications. And, once integrated, the intelligence of machine learning kicks in to help guide work through actionable insights and automation.
We are not a development shop but we do know our way around cloud capabilities. Microapps. Powerapps. Azure.
Since launch a decade ago, Office 365 has grown to over 300 million commercial seats. Along the way, they have continuously re-invested to meet the changing needs of your businesses. Microsoft has now announced changes to their commercial pricing model for Microsoft 365 – the first substantive pricing update since its launch.
