Betty Blocks established a strategic business partnership with Resourcing Pros to offer the Betty Blocks no-code platform as part of developing innovative solutions for professional SME’s in the Netherlands and Germany.
Tom Oudhuis, partner and channel manager at Betty Blocks comments: “Betty Blocks is continuously seeking implementation partners who are leading in digital innovation. Our no-code platform offers our partners a unique solution that enables them to offer innovation and digital transformation to their customers in an efficient and effective manner. It is important to us that our implementation partners are able to correctly position our platform amongst other solutions and that they are experienced in digital innovation. Partners who recognize and understand why and how no-coding solutions offer the best competitive advantage to their customers. With Resourcing Pros we have added another professional digital innovation partner to our network.”
“Software is increasingly becoming mission critical and the scarcity of professional and experienced software developers will put the brakes on innovation,” according to Edgar Kiwiet, CEO of Resourcing Pros. “Due to the current digital transformation of society in combination with demographic trends, the scarcity in ICT-Talent will continue to rise. The current economic upturn accelerates this trend. The mission of Resourcing Pros is to solve this gap between supply and demand of experienced software engineering professionals. Our focus is on delivering higher quality in a shorter time to market without adding cost. The Betty Blocks platform provides these qualities and thereby contributes to faster innovation.”
Innovation starts in the “Business” department
Competitive advantage as a result of innovation starts with establishing a good connection between “Business” and “IT.” Innovation starts with “Citizen Developers” in each line of business and is then transferred to the IT department for further development and support. For this to work it is important that the IT department is able to provide an environment for development that enables Business to be compliant with the IT department security constraints and guidelines.
Resourcing Pros’ hybrid business model embeds relevant customer stakeholders and key users in our unique ‘Innovation Kite’ solution delivery process, and seamlessly integrates both Business and IT expertise. We start with Business and develop solutions from the perspective of our customers, the end users. We offer IT the virtually limitless potential of specialized and highly experienced software developers from our own business partner network together with our localized Plug-In software development teams.
There is no one solution for all
Ever customer situation is unique and requires a custom approach. Kiwiet: “Solutions from the past are no guarantee for the future.” Continuous innovation is important in order to secure your competitive advantage. Innovation starts with Business, where end user needs must be met and satisfied. This is a constant interaction between technological constraints, possibilities, and end user needs. That is why at Resourcing Pros we focus on Digital Strategy Engineering first, followed by IT in order to serve and support the Business process needs.
Two approaches to better connect and integrate Business and IT
You can focus on enforcing “IT” by localizing and adding international software development talent. Resourcing Pros achieves this with its unique hybrid business model of a local Dutch and German Technical Coordinator or User Experience Designer as integral parts of our customer teams. It is also possible to focus on enabling Business to develop solutions with low-code or no-code platforms or ‘aPaas’ ( Platform as a Service). Depending on the specific customer situation and objectives, Resourcing Pros focuses on IT, on Business, or on both in order to achieve this connection and integration of Business and IT for our customers.
Low-code and no-code platforms are available in various flavors
There is also no ‘one size fits all’ here: It is all about ‘fit for purpose.’ At Resourcing Pros we want to offer vendor-independent solutions to our customers. Our customers can choose from multiple technological solutions, each with their own pros and cons and pricing conditions. Resourcing Pros sees Betty Blocks as an ideal platform for customers who require innovation and digital transformation in a cost-efficient manner that produces fast results. The platform bridges the gap between Business and IT, fits every IT-infrastructure, and is a solid base for innovation.
Especially for small and mid-size business professionals,, we see the Betty Blocks platform as a perfect addition to both our Dutch and German Digital Engineers and User Experience Designers.
