With over 50% of website traffic coming from mobile devices, governments everywhere are struggling to adapt to a mobile-first / cloud-first reality. The pandemic exacerbated these challenges, but low-code offers an antidote: the ability to design, develop, and deploy applications at scale.
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) November 09, 2022
Kinetech and Mendix are excited to announce our participation at the Government Technology IT Leadership Forum in Austin, Texas on November 14, 2022. The event will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Austin at 6505 N Interstate Hwy 35, Austin, TX 78752.
Kinetech will be co-sponsoring the event with Mendix, the global leader in low-code.
The Texas IT Leadership Forum is the premier event for senior level technology executives and rising leaders. The purpose of the event is to foster discussion and dialogue on what it means to be a successful IT executive in the public sector. Additional conversation will be around the appropriate tools and strategies to assist current and emerging leaders. This event is an opportunity for government and industry to collaborate and address the most important policy, management, and leadership issues surrounding the future of digital government.
Together, Kinetech and Mendix will be conversing with Information Technology (IT) executives from around Texas about the potential of low-code. Governments around the world have leveraged low-code and no code solutions to rapidly modernize legacy systems, develop new services, and extend the life of systems of record.
Why Low-code is Significant for Government:
With over 50% of website traffic coming from mobile devices, governments everywhere are struggling to adapt to a mobile-first / cloud-first reality. From internal business applications to consumer facing / self-service solutions (B2C portals), organizations are struggling to enable the type and volume of digital services demanded by their stakeholders (employees, customers, citizens, etc).
The pandemic exacerbated these challenges, but low-code offers an antidote: the ability to design, develop, and deploy applications at scale. In effect, low-code platforms can help organizations do more with less.
