Software start-up Airtable hits $11 billion valuation in latest funding, adds Salesforce, Michael Dell as investors

“Airtable was co-founded by Howie Liu, who sold his other start-up — enterprise software company Etacts — to Salesforce in 2011. As Airtable’s CEO, Liu’s mission is to make the complex world of software more user friendly. Up until companies like Airtable started creating low-code and no-code software, it wasn’t really accessible to most people. Now with no coding background required, workers can build apps and workflows.

The fast-growing code-for-everyone-else approach allows professionals who aren’t fluent in coding languages such as Java or Python, and don’t have their desk buried deep within the stack, to play a part in rethinking and remaking the consumer and client digital experience.”

Council Post: How No-Code AI Is Changing Business

“No-code AI in finance: The financial sector is data-driven. Every decision, from deciding on the target market to creating the right products for the market to customer service comes down to data. In the financial sector, no-code AI tools can be introduced to fulfill a variety of purposes, for example, reducing the risk of bad credit for lenders, choosing where to open or close a bank branch, automating online onboarding forms and much more. All this goes toward making the business not only more effective but cost-effective, too.

No-code AI in marketing: While the marketing world is highly creative, it’s vital that creativity connects with the intended audience. No-code AI modules can be introduced in the marketing sector to target and align marketing campaigns to customer demand more closely. For example, this may involve closely tailoring a Facebook ad to ensure that it finds the potential customer who needs and wants to see it while avoiding inundating those who do not. No-code AI in marketing can better inform current and potential clients about solutions they want and need.”
