DARE TO DIGITALISE!

Has the UK’s drive for digitalisation stalled before it even started? After placing 5th in the G7 and 15th in the G20¹ in terms of digital transformation and competitiveness – one might certainly think so. And yet no-code software solutions, in particular, present the ideal solution for improving the digital readiness of non-IT employees. When combined with innovative strategies, such the Lobster Group’s unique approach of integrating data and processes as one, there are still plenty of avenues companies can take to expedite their digitalisation journeys and drive growth.

NO MORE SHADOW IT!

Data integration, application development, business process management, database analyses… the to-do list once reserved for in-house and third-party developers with their lines of Java, Python or C++ is long. Now no-code is taking centre stage. No longer the new kid on the block, no-code gives non-IT-trained employees the tools to take the development of process-centric applications into their own hands, becoming citizen developers. Certainly no fleeting fad, no-code should not be overlooked – particularly in light of the acute shortage of IT specialists at home and abroad1.  WHAT IS A CITIZEN DEVELOPER?  Articles dedicated to digital transformation and no-code software…

COMPLEXITY EASILY SOLVED

HOW EASY IS IT TO CONFIGURE API AND WEBSERVICES?

WHATEVER THE COST? CERTAINLY NOT!

Supplier management is the act of planning, shaping and developing relationships between buyers/customers and suppliers. The process can be subdivided into evaluation, development, integration and controlling of the involved collaboration and is used to assess the respective supplier’s performance, fulfilment of and involvement in ordering processes. This reduces the risk of supplier-side failure whilst other benefits include decreased procurement costs, higher procurement efficiency and long-term security of supply.  Increasingly complex and error-prone supply chains – not least due to events such as the coronavirus pandemic, China’s zero Covid strategy and the war in Ukraine – have highlighted the strategic importance…

LOBSTER_DATA’S NEW AMAZON SP-API CONNECTOR.

The first thing consumers and vendors think of when the conversation turns to ecommerce – is Amazon. Selling a few items on the platform is fairly straightforward, but when the number of products ramps up into the dozens, hundreds or even thousands, it can be very time consuming. Particularly if all data regarding orders, shipments, returns, products, etc. is extracted manually through the Amazon Seller Central Portal. Or if you’re a first-party seller wanting to send your products to an Amazon warehouse or fulfilment center using Amazon Vendor Central.  Furthermore, the old Amazon MWS (Marketplace Web Services) has become outdated…
