– Survey of 1,000 C-Level executives reveals awareness doesn't line up with breathless predictions about technology's growth
– Surprisingly, nearly 40% of chief technology officers (CTO) in North America acknowledged never hearing of low-code and no-code software development
– This is a sharp contrast to Europe, where only 24% of CTO's are unaware of the technology
AMERSFOORT, Netherlands, Aug. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CLEVR, the company that helps enterprises accelerate their digital transitions through the enormous power of the Mendix low-code and no-code (LCNC) development solutions, today announced the results of a survey that shows a shockingly high number of executives from North America have yet to hear about no-code and low-code software development.
More than a quarter (27%) of the C-suite executives from North America surveyed revealed that they were unaware of the technology. The level of knowledge about LCNC was even low when it came to chief technology officers (CTO) in North America, traditionally the savviest tech people within an organization. Of those surveyed in North America a whopping 38% acknowledged not knowing anything about LCNC. That contrasted sharply with their European counterparts. Only 24% of CTOs based in Europe were unfamiliar with the technology.
Angelique Schouten, CLEVR's CEO, warns that companies that haven't incorporated LCNC into their development stack are simply operating at a disadvantage. Schouten is a member of the team that enabled the first banks in the world to operate fully in the cloud based on Ohpen's AWS cloud-native core banking engine. She knows plenty about the headaches involved with traditional development within organizations. Schouten maintains that LCNC is at the forefront of a silent revolution among developers and managers who seek to cut back development time and cost. Software has become the beating heart of business and countless companies around the globe are in one stage or another of digitizing their processes. LCNC is a visualization-based "drag-and-drop" development technology that eliminates the need to create code from scratch and is a far faster, more flexible and a less costly way to build solutions.
"The environment feels a little like when cloud technology was beginning to take off and many businesses thought it was the same thing as iCloud or Dropbox," Schouten said. "They had no understanding of the kind of impact it would have on their organizations. Back then, there was little understanding of the cloud's power and what it could bring to larger organizations and start-ups alike. LCNC is on the same track. Only through better understanding of LCNC can leaders extract all the value the technology has to offer."
The power of LCNC to transform the building of software solutions is on its way, according to the experts. By 2024, Gartner predicts that 75% of large enterprises will use at least four low-code development tools for IT and citizen development initiatives. Another sign of that is those executives surveyed who are aware of LCNC, apparently heard enough positive things to try it. According to CLEVR's survey, no less than 78% of the C-level executives surveyed and who indicated that they were aware of the LCNC trend, confirmed that they are using some form of the development tool within their organization. In another testimonial for LCNC's effectiveness, those respondents who are using LCNC were asked to list the top five reasons why: 71% indicated the technology's superior speed; 45% said it was less expensive; 44% said it was more adaptable to change; 36% indicated that it was easier to train people to develop apps and 33% said it was more scalable (33%). Interestingly, 16% stated that one of the reasons they chose to develop with LCNC was that it was more fun.

Apple has released yet more details on its new photo-scanning features, as the controversy over whether they should be added to the iPhone continues. Earlier this month, Apple announced that it would be adding three new features to iOS, all of which are intended to fight against child sexual exploitation and the distribution of abuse imagery. One adds new information to Siri and search, another checks messages sent to children to see if they might contain inappropriate images, and the third compares photos on an iPhone with a database of known child sexual abuse material (CSAM) and alerts Apple if it is found.

Android Auto is best-known as a way to access your phone through a car's dashboard — this lets you easily access Google Maps, music apps and data without needing to use your phone. But for years now, Google has also offered an Android Auto experience directly on a phone, for people who don't have a compatible dashboard unit. More recently, Google has also been working on an "Assistant driving mode" (pictured above) that arrived earlier this year after a few delays. Now that Google Assistant driving mode is finished, though, the company will stop offering the old Android Auto experience on phones running Android 12.

A rather unusual vulnerability in Razer mice has been identified and the company is currently working on a fix. Over the weekend, security researcher Jon Hat posted on Twitter that after plugging in a Razer mouse or dongle, Windows Update will download the Razer installer executable and run it with SYSTEM privileges. It also lets you access the Windows file explorer and Powershell with "elevated" privileges — which essentially means someone with physical access to the computer could install harmful software.
