Science Slam Final

The Final Battle of Science Slam 2015 Is Coming

During the previous 4 editions of Science Slam Moldova we have witnessed many interesting and creative presentations. DAS Solutions has stayed close to young talents and invested its time and energy to help presenters do their best.

This week, four winners of the previous battles are going to present their works and we will find out who is the Slammer of the Year. The topics vary significantly, which makes the event even more compelling for the general public.

One of the participants, Alexandr Iscenco, is going to talk about 3D printing, robotics, open-source, ecology, and the future. He will present the findings of the research he conducted in Germany on this topic. Primarily, he will discuss the future role of robots and 3D printing in our lives and the progress already made since the invention of 3D printing.

During the Science Slam Final Battle, we will have the opportunity to find out about the influence of contagious diseases on the Moldovan history and about the ways authorities managed to deal with epidemics during the interwar period. The Slammer Alexandru Ghetan will shed light on this and many other things during the Final Battle of the Science Slam.

Another Slammer, Dr. Iulia Iatco, will discuss algae, cyanobacteria, and their structure. The scientist mentions that algae are not currently used at their full capacity around the world. Algae can be used in alimentation (thanks to their vitamins and microelements), but also in waste treatment (wastewaters can be cleaned effectively and responsibly using algae), agriculture (domestic animals can be fed with the biomass from microalgae) and many other industries!

A well-known ethologist, Dr. Dorian Furtuna, will discuss aggression, the reasons that lead to it, and its effects. He has recently published a book that explores the causes of human aggression and the reasons behind wars and explains why military conflicts keep happening around the world.

Science Slam is an event that brings together talented scientists and innovators with the general public and promotes new and exciting topics and ideas. DAS Solutions is proud to be a partner of Science Slam Moldova.

Advantages of Software Development in Moldova

Software development in Moldova is the most dynamic industry in the country. Since 2000, the Moldovan ICT sector has grown faster than the economy as a whole and exerted a positive impact on labor productivity in different sectors. According to the ATIC Policy White Book, in 2012 the IT sector in Moldova represented 8.9% of GDP.

The fact that IT developers from Moldova create software solutions for well-known companies throughout the world speaks to the country’s emerging strengths as an IT nearshoring and offshoring destination.

  1. Moldova is well known for software development quality and competitive prices.

GoalEurope conducted an independent research which demonstrated that software development in Moldova is the most attractive destination from a cost-benefit standpoint when compared to Ukraine or Belarus.

  1. Qualified professionals willing to broaden their knowledge.

Moldova has a strong, Soviet-inherited, technical education system with a very rigorous curriculum in both its vocational schools and universities. Talented IT graduates from universities in Moldova are generally hired even before they finish their studies. Moldovan universities in collaboration with world-famous organizations provide training courses, certification programs, opportunities to run workshops that are becoming more and more popular each year. Employers often send their team members to refresher courses and international summits. Moreover, it is common for Moldovan professionals to speak at least three languages: Romanian, Russian, and English. Frequently professionals from Moldova also speak French, German, Italian or Spanish.

  1. Moldova is well-situated.

Moldova is perfectly situated in the 1-3 hours flying distance from any place in Europe which makes travelling cheap and convenient. The time zone is also suitable for projects in which team members are located in different countries.

Software development in Moldova may not be suited to all organizations looking to design and create software solutions, because the pool of professionals is limited due to the country’s small size. Nonetheless, it is a perfect destinations for most companies interested in smaller, high-end operations. International companies that will spot the benefits of creating cost-effective and high-quality solutions in Moldova early will have the advantage on the market.

 

Most companies turn to DAS when, for one reason or another, they can not find the right people on the ground. For example, the supply of developers in the Western Europe area is rather low, although there are quite a few IT companies there.

However, there are also reasons that aggravate an insufficient supply in other regions of Western Europe – where wages for developers are particularly high. For companies not only the lack but also cost considerations come into play. Above all cost considerations and shortage of skilled labor are the main reasons why companies turn to DAS.

Mobile Applications Used in Business: Convenient and Simple

Mobile applications used in business improve the workflow inside the company, and have a beneficial impact on customer service and customers’ loyalty. More and more small and mid-size businesses understand the mobile trend and the fact that they need more than a website and a profile on social networks. Customers are overloaded with information and you need to add value to catch their attention and win their affection.

Mobile applications used in business are a necessity, because they can:

• provide customer service (e.g., banking or shipment tracking apps)
• give value added benefits (e.g., retail apps can use a reward program)
• bring convenience (airline apps allow you to change your flight or buy another ticket quickly)
• send push notifications to let your customers know about a promotion you are running
• bring additional revenue (your company can sell the premium version of the application)
• accelerate mundane tasks
• provide access to information when the employee is not in the office (e.g., access to CRM and databases).

A survey conducted by Canvas has shown that employees used from 1 to 5 business mobile applications in their work in 2014, while in 20% of the companies surveyed, employees used more than 10 apps in their work. Canvas has found that companies are saving a lot of money by using mobile applications that reduce manual processes. Also they have found that signature and image capture are the most popular features in business.

There are many mobile applications used in business, however if a process has to be simplified then it is close to impossible to find an application for that in an app store. In this case you need a nice and intuitive custom application developed with your process in mind. Let’s say it takes a lot of time to do a certain task, because the employee has to be outside the office and has to fill in a lot of vital, accurate information once he or she is back. If the task is completed on the go then the information stays error-free and it takes less time to complete the task. If your staff uses a custom enterprise application, then you will outperform your competitors.

Your business can streamline business processes, eliminate paperwork and make your customers loyal. Contact us to get an estimation for your custom mobile app.

Moving Forward,
