Shiah to focus on new low-code paradigm as future of IoT application development
Mountain View, CA—AgilePoint, an established leader in the low-code platform space, today announced that one of its co-founders, Jesse Shiah, will be a featured speaker at Internet of Things West, a technology conference being staged November 3-4, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Internet of Things West is an event covering advanced connectivity and cloud-based control of devices, equipment, facilities and enterprise operations.
While the Internet of Things has been a hot topic in technology circles for the past few years, several factors have inhibited the advancement of IoT technologies. “Most IoT applications created today are point solutions with simple backend integrations,” commented Shiah. “But the real value of the IoT can be realized only when supporting applications move past the point-solution stage, having more sophisticated backend orchestrations spanning actors, line-of-business systems, cloud services, and other IoT systems.”
Shiah went on to point that today’s standard software development methodology—Agile—simply doesn’t address the challenges presented by the IoT. “Agile is too slow and expensive to satisfy the exploding demand for IoT applications,” pointed out Shiah. “And, hand-coded apps lack responsive characteristics, which are a necessity in the 24/7 world of the IoT, where apps can’t be taken offline for updates. That’s where low-code platforms come in,” concluded Shiah, “especially platforms that can quickly produce sophisticated, cross-functional systems that can self-adapt to changing business conditions and technical requirements.”
Shiah’s session, entitled “Compose IoT Business Solutions with a Low-Code Development Platform,” will be on November 3rd at 3pm Pacific.
