Episode 7 | Is low-code the future?

September 23, 2021

Mike Holmes joins Matt Culpin to discuss the benefits of a low code platform, looking at the considerations and requirements to make it more widely adopted across an organisation, with integration as key.

The desire to move to a low code approach is prominent within local authorities, but many organisations do not currently consider the use of low code platforms. Mike responds by asking what functionality is needed and how complex is it, and how much of that is then essential to their end viable product?

An insightful discussion for anyone considering the adoption of a low code platform.

As such it is ever more important that the youth of today have the opportunity to learn about digital opportunities and skillsets that will create a sustainable model for the future.

June is a month of celebration of the LGBTQ+ communities, attracting millions of people around the world who participate in parades, marches, parties and also protests.

Hosted by Daniel Kumar, with Sarah Rudston and Lucy Kerslake, our Methods Analytics colleagues discuss ‘what does Pride mean to me?’. From community, celebrating diversity, to being your authentic self, Pride means different things to different people, and we all have reasons to be proud of who we are and how we express that.
