Next-Gen Manufacturing: The Rise of the Citizen Developer

The value of digital transformation for manufacturers lies in the agility and culture of continuous improvement that it enables. The further removed the development of a solution is from its end users, the longer it takes to build and adjust the solution so that it meets changing user needs. With traditional approaches being rigid and top-down, projects are disruptive to implement, difficult to update, and take years to get off the ground and show value.

Join us to learn how next-gen manufacturers are embracing citizen development and the democratization of technology implementation to support operations. Learn how next-gen manufacturers are implementing no-code platforms that empower their engineers and managers to build powerful, rapid-built apps that solve problems without coding expertise.
