SoftwareONE Netherlands and citizen development platform Betty Blocks are proud to announce their partnership. SoftwareONE is the global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, who specialize in modernizing legacy applications. Combining their expertise with Betty Blocks’ platform allows organizations around the world to digitally transform at a high pace and bring their business to the cloud.
“Our customers come to us with the most varying questions. However, there’s always a pattern to be found amidst them,” Martijn van Tol, Innovation Lead at SoftwareONE explains. Van Tol researches (tech-related) developments in the market on a daily basis. “From a multi-cloud-strategy, companies increasingly opt for the major hyperscalers such as AWS, Google and Microsoft. We see that a lot of questions arise around legacy applications, especially around the theme of ‘what to do’ with legacy systems in a cloud-based strategy. The business side of the company continuously demands faster development and this is having a direct influence on IT “Speed is the new currency of business”. We’re experiencing a shift: more and more often we’re sitting opposite the business owners, rather than IT managers. That is why we started looking for solutions that support colleagues in the business and their desire to boost digital transformation as well as innovation. Betty Blocks’ citizen development platform fits us like a glove. Not least considering the certification and integration capabilities of Betty Blocks with SAP, which is one of the most important migrations we do to AWS, Google Cloud Platform and Azure.”
The Betty Block’s platform enables organizations to speed up development and empower a new breed of developers: citizen developers. Chris Obdam, CEO and founder of Betty Blocks, explains: “We believe that the future of innovation is in the hands of people, not systems. That’s why nobody should be limited by software in this world of endless innovation and possibilities. With SoftwareONE we have been able to add a reliable and highly experienced partner to our network. They provide added value for enterprise organizations that want to scale up to the cloud quickly and securely. By combining our services, this can be arranged even more efficiently.”
Unlimited possibilities in the cloud
Van Tol adds: “We see more and more often that there’s lots of applications and systems that are not accessible in the cloud. As a result, organizations miss important information and management tools. With the Betty Blocks development platform, it is possible to develop a solution where information or systems are still available in the form of apps or web application for example. On top of that, we see a growing need for the practical implementation of citizen development. End users have already developed their IT skills and we’re also noticing a growing demand for developers. This means we need to offer a platform that is accessible and supports easy and pragmatic development - and quickly adopt new developments in IT. At the same time, it needs to be accessible in terms of the investment. These are important conditions for it to land well in organizations.”
