If you’re a CIO or work in IT, you’re spending the vast majority of your time keeping the lights on, managing solutions that were built with tools invented during Eisenhower’s presidency, and are struggling to drive innovation. The fact that there are still 20 billion lines of COBOL, a coding language created in 1959, responsible for managing $3 trillion of daily commerce (source) is proof enough. If you’re sitting on the business side of your company, you’re frustrated by the pace of innovation produced by your IT team and are excited by the tempting (yet incomplete) promise of Generative AI to build software faster.
The developer-centric model of the past has clearly shown its limitations, acting as a bottleneck to innovation and creating a bureaucratic chasm between the business (who knows what needs to be built) and the technical (who knows how to do it). On the flip side, the pure citizen developer model, although inspiring, is simply not a realistic model for enterprises because it lacks the level of governance, quality, or security that enterprises require.
At Unqork, we believe in cross-functional collaboration, bringing both business and technologists together to build the winning solutions their companies need.
Today, I'm thrilled to introduce Unqork's ’23 fall product release (read more on that here). With this release, we're ushering in a new era, saying farewell to legacy IT woes (no more tech debt, no more security threats, and no more modernization hurdles) while providing a single platform for business and technologists to drive innovation together.
Unqork's UDesigner and Integration Gateway
This release marks many milestones – for myself, our team, and the broader software development community. What sets this release apart is that our team built these features entirely on our codeless platform passing the product version of the “Turing Test.” After decades of building software with different languages and technologies, it is an amazing feat to get to the point where our team can build – and actually prefers to build – with our own codeless platform. As we call it, we “drink our own champagne.”
Thanks to our extraordinary team and the power of Unqork, in just one quarter, we were able to concept, build, and launch the first Integrated Development Environment (IDE) designer without a single line of code, which will in-turn help our customers unlock faster innovation. Compared to the years this would have taken with traditional coding, this is a testament to Unqork's technology.
Unqork's codeless platform opens up boundless opportunities for enterprises. Freed from the burden of legacy technology, developers can now focus on unleashing their creativity, collaborating seamlessly with business teams.
Turbocharged by our Gen AI powered migration solution which helps customers migrate legacy applications into Unqork, this new release opens up a new frontier on how enterprise applications are defined, built and maintained and it’s amazing to be on the team leading this transformation.
It’s time to embrace the future of codeless, and I’m excited to be a part of Unqork who is leading the charge. Explore Unqork's latest release and witness how software will be built!
