14:00 – 14:45 (subject to change)

Business applications have evolved significantly over the past decade. The rapid rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and machine learning are radically redefining apps as we know them. We’re entering the era of smart apps: innovative systems that gather tremendous amounts of data from sensors and other sources, using machine learning algorithms and predictive analytics to make this information actionable for users and to improve experiences. Building these smart apps at scale, in a rapid pace, and involving the useful business and domain insights requires a low-code platform. But that’s not the end of the story. With an AI-assisted development approach, enterprises will benefit from hands-on mentoring for new developers with AI-assisted next-step suggestions, increased developer productivity and capacity and decreased time and cost impact of defects.
