An interview with Michael Hackney, ViziApps CTO and VP of Products
Michael Hackney sat down to share with us some of his insights into why he chose ViziApps and ViziApps chose him as our new CTO and VP of Products. Here is a summary of the interview. The full video is at the bottom of this article.

Why are you excited about becoming the new CTO and VP of Products of ViziApps?
Companies find it time consuming and expensive to invest in creating custom applications to solve their unique business problems. ViziApps’ technology solves real business problems. Michael tested it out by creating a simple app and found ViziApps does it faster and much more easily than other platforms.

What strengths and skills do you bring to the table?
Michael brings quite a diverse technology background to the table, including enterprise cloud-based software solutions, award-winning Apple-based products, and even IoT (Internet of Things) predictive analytics for railroads! With that, he brings diverse thinking to addressing the opportunities for ViziApps’ technology in the market place.

Business use of mobile apps is exploding and with good reason. As a result, many mid-market and enterprise companies now need dozens to hundreds of business workflow mobile apps for their workers. These mobile apps can yield big benefits in cost reduction, increased productivity, and worker job satisfaction.

But many of these organizations can’t keep up with the demand for a high number of custom-coded mobile business apps. It’s simply too costly and takes too long to go the custom-coding development route.

And in many cases, it’s not necessary to use custom coding, because new Rapid Mobile App Development (RMAD) platforms empower citizen developers who have just modest technical skills to create robust mobile apps for a fraction of the time and cost of custom coding. Gartner Research predicts that by 2022, 70% of software interactions in enterprises will occur on mobile devices and that more than half of all business-to-employee (B2E) mobile apps will be created by enterprise citizen developers using code-less tools.

Forrester Research projects the market for such citizen developer mobile no code/low code platforms will grow to $15 billion by 2020.

This is a big deal.
