A future without Custom Software in our times of ever surging business competition? I bet not.

 

Now. Recently.

I had this conversation with one of my clients.

Client: How can I implement Custom Software efficiently?

Me: By knowing its CURRENT TRENDS.

Me: Well… That needs a lot of groundwork.

As Sweet Brown would say, he replied, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.

 

That’s when I elicited some of the prevailing trends and the ones that would strengthen further in the forthcoming times
