There was no break in the Energize momentum as Day 4 dove into technical advancements at ANB Systems. The Deep Dives and Lightning Talks highlighted ANB’s digital marketing strategy, product development, enhancements to EEPM, and augmentation to DRM. The technical innovations demonstrated will help build the path to scale up implementations this year.
The day’s session began with a discussion on digital marketing strategy and how it will drive growth this year. The talk generated a good conversation on how to tell ANB Systems’ success stories to our current clients and new customers. Next up was a presentation on the work going on in the product development area. Innovations will enhance the user experience and make building new solutions easier. These developments are in the early stage but will bear fruit soon. Next, the EEPM team gave insights into their work. EEPM is a custom solution for a utility client, but the functionality they are building is being adopted in eTRACK+ that will streamline data input and a new system for building ad hoc user surveys. The last presentation of the day examined DRM Augmentation and how machine learning is being incorporated to enhance error and image detection as well as data extraction. ANBites voted that the Product Development presentation was the best of the day.
Day 5 will move into Technology and Tooling with discussions on the many support tools that are available along with new developments in analytics, serverless computing, API testing, and mobile automation. A slight change in plan has our added Day 6 with a speaker from PotHoleRaja®, where they are to make roads in India safer by repairing any reported potholes in just 3-5 days. Energize 2022 continues to drive forward.
