Neptune Software Delivers Innovative No-Code Tools

With the rapidly evolving digital landscape, IT departments often find themselves struggling to keep up with the ever-changing demands of businesses. Meanwhile, communicating what users with minimal technical know-how need from IT teams creates roadblocks and time-sucks. Bridging the gap between IT and business users is a necessity, one that Neptune's newest expansion in their offerings succeeds in providing.

Neptune App Builder facilitates a combination of design thinking, rapid prototyping and frontend development, allowing both business users and IT specialists to collaborate to go from an idea to a fully working digital user experience within hours.

"Our no-code app builder empowers users to showcase their app requirements from a user perspective," said Ole-Andre Haugen, Chief Technology Officer at Neptune Software. "By providing capabilities that are easily understandable to non-technical individuals, our tool enables them to effectively communicate their needs to technical teams. This bridge between the two worlds encourages collaboration, leading to more aligned and successful app development projects."

With the no-code app building feature, users can quickly start a fast app development journey, even with minimal technical knowledge. A simple drag-and-drop designer, coupled with pre-made application building blocks, enables true rapid application development, allowing users to build applications for mobile, tablet, and desktop simultaneously, once, and ensuring a seamless user experience across devices.

Neptune app builder also allows the user to seamlessly transition from the app development stage to production. Forward-compatible technology ensures that everything developed within Neptune app builder can be reused, eliminating the need for re-engineering or switching to other competitive no-code mockup tools.

And, Neptune app builder helps transform user ideas into functional prototypes and mock-ups within seconds that are compatible with the rest of the Neptune DXP platform. This allows IT teams to involve business users early on to collaborate and provide immediate input on how the solution can better work for them, resulting in a more effective end product.

An intuitive toolset that's user-friendly and time-saving, Neptune No-Code App builder is a game-changer for collaborating teams across developers, IT and users with minimal technical experience to turn their enterprise app ideas into reality. By empowering business key users and fostering collaboration with IT departments, this tool bridges the gap between technical and non-technical teams.

Glassbox Delivers Enterprise-ready Generative AI Assistant with Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service

Glassbox | January 11, 2024

Glassbox (TASE:GLBX), a leading provider of digital experience intelligence for web and mobile applications, today announced the availability of its enterprise-ready AI assistant, which the company has named GIA (Glassbox Insights Assistant). Glassbox turned to Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service, which hosts OpenAI models fully within the secure Azure environment, to elevate the security and privacy standards of its previously announced AI assistant. In combination with Glassbox’s patented data privacy measures, users of the AI assistant can be confident that the conversational interface is protected with the level of rigor they expect from both Microsoft and Glassbox. “We developed the AI assistant earlier based on OpenAI’s GPT model. However, our commitment to responsible AI and our exacting security, data privacy and compliance standards compelled us to turn to the Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service for its additional protections for potentially sensitive data shared or accessed through the new generative AI (GenAI) interface,” said Glassbox co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Yaron Gueta. “GIA sets a new bar for what organizations should expect of GenAI solutions from their software providers.” Glassbox captures millions or billions of digital experience data points for each of its customers every month that give them the richest possible set of data about their digital customer experience. GIA allows Glassbox users to uncover deep digital insights quickly and without technical knowledge or reliance on data and analytics teams. “Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service is ideal for companies like Glassbox that need to deliver enterprise-grade GenAI solutions based on vast, proprietary datasets,” added John Montgomery, CVP, Azure AI at Microsoft. “By using the power of our generative AI capabilities, Glassbox’s AI assistant can deliver a better experience to customers with the security measures of Azure.” With Gartner predicting that more than half of all successful technology solutions will be delivered to “nontraditional” buyers outside of IT by 2025, one of the pillars of Glassbox’s AI strategy is to make its unparalleled set of digital experience data more actionable, more quickly by more users for greater business impact. GIA is central to this strategy as Glassbox shifts increasingly towards natural language interfaces. The use of GenAI to unlock digital insights is also a key step in realizing Glassbox’s Autonomous CX vision, which promises to revolutionize the customer experience domain by making digital experiences fully self-optimizing. GIA is immediately available within the Glassbox digital experience intelligence platform when deployed in a customer’s preferred cloud environment. About Glassbox Glassbox (TASE:GLBX) reveals the insights that empower organizations to deliver better digital customer experiences. Our Digital Experience Intelligence platform automatically captures, visualizes and analyzes every digital journey in real time across websites and mobile apps. It serves as the unifying platform for product, UX, marketing, IT, analytics teams (and more) to assess performance, prioritize projects and optimize experiences. With unparalleled data privacy and security built in, hundreds of global customers across industries have chosen Glassbox to grow and optimize their digital businesses. Learn more at glassbox.com.
