Surviving the Global IT shortage

How Beesion uses smart, non-developers to build telecom applications with its Low-Code Platform

SITUATION:

GROWING DEMAND FOR LOW-CODE, THANKS TO GLOBAL IT SHORTAGE

Beesion Technologies, LLC is an innovative technology company that pioneered a suite of 30 low-code software applications for the telecommunications industry. The suite isn’t built using traditional software development. Instead, it relies on a unique set of modules – with pre-built functionality – that are combined, expanded, and reused to create software applications.

Applications are then customized and integrated in runtime, using visual tools and “in memory” configuration, requiring little to no custom code. In fact, the software suite may be the first low-code Business Support System. It’s used in more than 20 countries.

Beesion’s Low-Code Telecom Software

Up to 95% of every application is pre-built with existing modules, and customized primarily with run-time
configuration. About 5% of the customization requires coding.

Because of growing demand for Beesion’s low-code telecom software globally, the company needed more developers. However, it found recruiting enough IT employees very challenging, especially in Argentina where it does a lot of its development. At the same time, the company was very concerned about the global IT shortage.

SOLUTION:

CREATE THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS PROGRAM WITH SMART, YOUNG ENGINEERS

The company realized that its low-code telecom software didn’t require the traditional software developer, with a background in coding. Instead, it could find talented young professionals from different disciplines – electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, business administration, and others – and teach them the principles of Beesion’s low-code technology, called Swarm. Thus, the Young Professionals Program was born.

Beesion identified the types of skills that most lead to success, and began recruiting graduates – 23-29 years of age – had exceptional analysis abilities and a strong background in technical or business disciplines. Many are pursuing post-graduate degrees.

The company also recruited engineers from multiple Latin American countries to increase the diversity of ideas.

It provided the young professionals with an intensive two-month training program, covering computer science and IT fundamentals, as well as the company’s software approach and philosophy. Then, it assigned them to work groups to develop low-code applications or demos for clients.

RESULTS:

A STRONG WORKFORCE THAT LOVES THEIR JOBS, AND CAN CONFIGURE SOFTWARE

Since the program started in February, it has trained 26 Young Professionals in Argentina and Spain, that now work on the same level as junior development engineers for the company.

feel they have been trained well, and can configure applications for Beesion’s low-code telecom software.

The program also has reinforced Beesion’s ties with universities, generating a steady flow of potential workers, who bring a lot of enthusiasm to the company, and look at processes and ideas with new eyes.
Their different cultures also contribute to a very dynamic, multicultural environment.

A young professional, Víctor Sáinz, joined the program in Spain, and is now working on a point-of-sale application demo, and a pre-paid recharging demo. Prior to Beesion, he had no coding or software development experience. His education was in business administration, and had several internships in Italy and Spain.

“I never did any coding. However, I am now able to understand and modify applications using runtime configuration.” Víctor Sáinz
