Google Cloud Day 2023

such as the transformative potential of no-code tools and the future of work.
Patrick Wee, Country Manager, Malaysia, Google Cloud, said,
“The democratisation of software creation
is gaining ground within organisations, and by 2024,
more than 65% of applications will be developed
using low- or no-code tools.
In partnership with PointStar,
Google Cloud is committed to making application creation
accessible to users of all skill levels with tools
like Duet AI for AppSheet,
which can help organisations free up resources
and expertise to be reallocated toward other high-impact tasks and projects.”
