The UK’s award-winning application development platform KnowledgeKube is set to launch in Asia with partner, Total Integrated Resources (TIR).
Singapore-based TIR – a subsidiary of Oneberry, a leading provider of specialised IT security and facilities management solutions – is headed by Arun Murthy, former Head of Global Commodities at Standard Chartered Bank.
TIR will be unveiling KnowledgeKube at the IoT Asia Show from 1st September 2016, showcasing how businesses can easily connect and harness the value of IoT data.
Developed in the UK by Mercato Solutions, KnowledgeKube is a rapid app development platform that enables users to create enterprise web and mobile apps faster, and at a lower cost, than traditional development methods.
TIR believes the platform will allow Singapore businesses to meet a growing demand for global app development. To encourage adoption TIR will open a training academy in September offering KnowledgeKube courses to companies and their staff. The academy’s goal is to fulfil Singapore’s National Productivity Council’s vision to work on skills development, innovation in industry and productivity in every sector as part of its Smart Nation goal.
Arun Murthy said: “KnowledgeKube is a very significant part of TIR’s vision to empower Singapore – workers and businesses alike – through knowledge and skills enrichment, using inventive technology that will help create a connected Singapore. Truly, this is what’s disrupting the IT industry globally and we hope the successes enjoyed in the UK and Europe, such as addressing the gender imbalance in the IT sector, will be replicated here.”
He added: “We want to enable Singapore to achieve its Smart Nation goal and we have many more exciting developments to share in the next few months.”
Peter Robbins, managing director at Mercato Solutions – creators of KnowledgeKube, said: “Total Integrated Resource is a forward thinking business that is set to fundamentally change the way Singapore goes digital, by upskilling its greatest asset, its people!
“KnowledgeKube is proving to bridge the skills gap and meet demand for digital by enabling all users to rapidly prototype, preview and deploy web and mobile apps quicker, and therefore cheaper, than ever before – all without the need to write code.”
TIR also plans to launch its own App Store by the end of the year, with apps created using KnowledgeKube being made available to several industries including finance, technology, facilities management and FMCG.
