We have witnessed a true surge of “Do It Yourself” (DIY) technologies in recent years, allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to create their own solutions without the need for extensive technical knowledge.
The undeniable impact of technology on our personal and professional lives has made its presence essential. Lacking digital tools such as software, applications, websites, or social media translates into difficulties in carrying out our daily tasks with organization and efficiency.
Technological advancements not only transform our way of life but also improve our working conditions. Thanks to platforms like ChatGPT or Google, we can instantly access the information we need. However, we sometimes come across specialized software designed for users with in-depth knowledge or requiring a considerable learning curve. In the business world, this can entail million-dollar investments, as seen in the implementation of an ERP, which involves costly licenses and related expenses like infrastructure, training, and maintenance.
Do It Yourself
In this context, we have witnessed a true surge of “Do It Yourself” (DIY) technologies in recent years, allowing entrepreneurs and small businesses to create their own solutions without the need for extensive technical knowledge. Some notable and popular examples include:
- Canva: A platform that enables users to create designs for various purposes, such as social media, presentations, posters, and videos. With this tool, companies can produce their own content without relying on a marketing department or investing in expensive specialized design software licenses.
- Wix: You’ve likely come across their ads while browsing the internet. This platform allows individuals to create websites (and logos) without the need for technical expertise. Using pre-designed templates, users can quickly build a website at a lower cost compared to hiring an agency.
- AppSheet: A platform recently acquired by Google, focused on creating mobile and web applications from spreadsheets. It allows people to digitize their processes without requiring programming skills or additional infrastructure.
While these mentioned platforms have their pros and cons, they all share a common element: empowering users to create solutions easily, affordably, and quickly. Through these platforms, individuals can utilize technology that, until recently, required specialized personnel and tools. With millions of monthly active users, these platforms have achieved widespread adoption by individuals and businesses worldwide. Furthermore, they leverage advanced technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and prioritize user-friendliness, which we can refer to as the democratization of technology.
