Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher famously said, “The only constant in the world is change, however, the fear of the change is also constant.” These words still ring true today after 2 millennia. The world as we knew it, has changed. Digitalisation is no longer just a good-to-have for businesses. It has pervaded all aspects of our everyday life – shopping, banking, entertainment, news and information, dining etc.
At ITE, we have adopted digitalisation in our operations – cashless, paperless, pre-filled forms, end-to-end eservices, CRM, learning analytics, big data dashboard etc.
My staff and I can testify to the value created by digitalisation in terms of efficiency, impact and speed.
For our students, we focus on equipping them with the horizontal digital skillsets to meet demands of the changing business environment in all industry sectors. ITE graduates can ride the digitalisation wave to seize new opportunities and optimise their potential.
According to Gartner’s forecast, worldwide low-code development technologies market will grow by 20% in 2023 to USD26.9 billion. Ease of use, productivity enhancement and efficiency in developing new applications are some of the main factors for the rising prominence in the low-code development technology.
- In March, last year, ITE signed an MOU with OutSystems. One of the key collaboration announced was to encourage students to use low-code software to develop apps that will solve real-world problems and needs. The low-code platforms allow students to develop agile solutions faster, better and effortlessly.
