How Remote Developers are Changing the Software Industry

this article was originally published by Index Code

In previous articles, we’ve laid out the compelling reasons why more and more software teams are going remote. Virtual workers are more productive, less expensive, and more engaged with their work. Companies that partner with remote developers gain access to a global pool of talent; and, with the flexibility to expand across time zones, there’s always someone online to troubleshoot or provide customer support. 

Many companies are already benefitting from fully remote developer teams. Here’s how some of the most innovative companies are leveraging remote work to stay ahead of the competition.

How These 3 E-Commerce Companies Work Remotely

Emily Heaslip
This article was originally published by Index Code

Software, mobile development, SaaS, and other tech companies that hire remotely are a dime-a-dozen: companies like Stripe, Buffer, and Coffee Meets Bagel are just a handful of those that benefit from working with top developers all over the world. 

Remote workers are penetrating virtually every industry, not just technology. A survey by Upwork found that 63% of companies now have remote workers, and 90% of those working remotely plan to continue doing so for the rest of their careers. Even e-commerce companies are shifting to a remote-friendly culture. While it may seem disjointed to design and produce a physical product with a distributed team, these e-commerce retailers, wholesalers, and brands are harnessing the benefits of remote work. Here’s how they do it.

10 Tools to Help Remote Developer Teams Work Efficiently

Emily Heaslip

This article was originally published by Index Code

It’s proven that remote teams work more productively than teams in an office environment. One survey found 77% of workers were more productive when working remotely. Another found that 76% of workers were distracted less often than when working in an office. 

Remote workers may be more productive, but there are still challenges to working efficiently in a distributed team. Coordinating developers across time zones can present a logistical headache. Remote developer teams need the right tools and platforms to ensure they can share work efficiently and capture the full benefits of productive remote work. These are the best ten tools for helping distributed teams of developers coordinate.

Tokenization vs. Encryption vs. Aliasing - How to Truly Minimize Compliance Risk

Ena Kadribasic

In the context of data security, modern digital businesses realize the dangers that come with using sensitive information in its raw form. Figuring out a way to collect and use the original data without putting it at risk remains a challenge, and organizations must channel a lot of their resources into IT security that protects their users’ sensitive data.
With so many highly-publicized data breaches hitting newspaper headlines in recent years, including a massive Capital One data breach in 2019, it has become more important than ever to protect sensitive consumer data and limit its exposure to data leaks.

Eight Steps to An Effective Dunning Campaign

KOBEN WILLIAMS

If you sell to customers on credit, you are probably already using dunning letters. These are simple notes that tell a customer “Hey, you’re overdue. Can you please pay us?" You can send a dunning letter via email or as a paper letter. Sounds simple? Actually, no. To write an effective dunning letter requires great attention to detail and often creativity. The best collections teams are constantly testing dunning campaigns and making changes to try to improve them, and they are measuring their results. While this may require more upfront time and thought, taking a more detailed and creative approach to dunning should yield significant dividends from better response rates to your dunning campaign. Here’s a quick guide to writing a rockstar dunning letter.

Ukraine Legislation in the 116th Congress


Bob McConnell

Now that the Second Session of the 116th Congress is here it might be worthwhile taking a brief look at some of the legislative action during the First Session and take a glance at a few pieces of legislation introduced last year that have not been acted on. 

I do note that I have not included here legislation passed in 2019 that had to do with Fiscal Year 2019 and I do not suggest this recital is comprehensive.

However, having mentioned a number of times my on-going concern arising from the impeachment debates that the 100 years of bipartisan Congressional support for Ukraine might be in jeopardy, I do note specifically that the enacted legislation mentioned below has all been acted upon with bipartisan support.

Beyond Bitcoin: How Developers are Helping Traditional Banks Modernize

Emily Heaslip


This article was originally published by Index Code
Bitcoin and blockchain tend to grab headlines in the world of banking. Cryptocurrency is the poster child of “disruptive technology” in the traditionally slow-moving finance industry. But, there are other areas where developers and software engineers must update business-as-usual in banking in order to survive.

According to one survey, 80% of bankers agreed that their institution “needs to complete an assessment over the next three years, but only 15% expected that to lead to a modernization effort.” Security threats, the demand for mobile banking, and outdated core banking systems are all driving banks to consider massive overhauls to their IT systems. These are the biggest modernization challenges facing financial institutions – areas where developers and remote software teams can play a significant role in keeping banks competitive.
