How does software development work with the help of a low code platform? To what extent do different low code approaches differ? Questions like these were addressed by students from RWTH Aachen University who attended the "Model-Driven Low-Code Platforms" course held by the Software Engineering department in the summer semester of 2021.
The model-driven approach brings about a number of changes for software developers. They are no longer solely responsible for building the entire application. Their...
What role can digital solutions play in tax practice? Students at Chemnitz University of Technology will be investigating these and other questions in case studies in the "Tax Technology Project 2021" from the end of April 2021. It is the result of cooperation between the Chair of Business Taxation and Auditing and mgm.
In cooperation with mgm, the Chair of Software Engineering at RWTH Aachen University is now supervising a new master's thesis and a bachelor's thesis dedicated to issues in the context of A12's graphical modelling tools.
Digital makeshift solutions in business departments, with which data is processed decentrally and beyond the applicable company IT standards, sometimes cloud-based, form the so-called...
Low code is replacing costly and slow software development approaches as a development principle. Business departments can design and customize highly complex and mission-critical enterprise applications without programming skills.
Business applications are subject to continuous change. In particular, the typical cost drivers that only arise in the course of a project - above all, functional changes and integrations - are repeatedly underestimated and are responsible in the long term for the failure of even very large IT projects.
Every day, critical business data lands in specialist departments in self-built mini-applications à la Excel - shadow IT is growing. However, in terms of data integrity, data security and availability, these applications represent a business risk for companies. A conversation with mgm project manager Thomas Kneist about the background of shadow IT and possible ways out.
