Technology is spreading its wings to provide a profusion of opportunities. We have millions of smart, interconnected devices and complex systems that are enabling us to do much more than human potentiality. But the hard fact is, these systems are not foolproof and highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

At an enterprise level, security breaches are unacceptable. That is why Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) is the watchword amongst enterprises to create a shield of safety around their network of devices, servers, and systems.

What exactly is Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT)? How does it enable enterprises to identify and…


The COVID-19 pandemic has put tremendous pressure on the healthcare system, globally. Hospitals have experienced a surge in the volume of patients. The hospital staff has been asked to perform roles they were unfamiliar with. Many hospitals even stopped elective procedures and consultations to ensure that COVID-affected patients are attended well.

It has been challenging for healthcare organizations to manage a massive change in their system and deal with it while ensuring that patient care remains unaffected. Clearly, the pandemic has emphasized better communication, collaboration, and innovation.

For hospitals to ensure seamless care delivery, it is important to manage routine…


According to the ergonomics of human-system interaction, User Experience (UX) is a person’s perceptions and responses that result from the use or anticipated use of a product, system, or service.

In simple words, User Experience (UX) is everything that a user experiences while he/she is associated with a product, system, service, or brand. That is why every entrepreneur who plans to create the next big thing pays attention to the UX details.

At Daffodil, we use the Design Thinking approach to build user experience for software applications. …


There are Yottabytes of sensitive data being generated from the interfacing of humans with machines. For cost-effective and optimal enrichment of this data, Machine Learning (ML) algorithms are our best bet. One of the most reliable categories of ML algorithms is clustering algorithms, irrespective of the complexity of data.

There are three different machine learning frameworks, classified based on the data you are working with — supervised learning, semi-supervised learning, and unsupervised learning. In supervised learning, the machine is trained with labeled data. The correct input and output data are provided to the machine.

Unsupervised learning works with data that…


Requirement gathering, design, development, testing, deployment, and maintenance. While an ideal software development process looks something like this, it is not the same in the real world. A development team encounters a number of roadblocks and technical debt is one of them.

In a Statista survey, 52% of respondents stated that the maintenance of legacy systems and technical debt hinders developer productivity in their company.

The IT Operations team capture, analyze, and act upon large volumes of data. To prevent, identify, and resolve the high-severity outages associated with this data, businesses these days are turning to Artificial Intelligence for IT Operations (AIOps).

AIOps is an umbrella term given to the usage of machine learning, big data analytics, and AI technologies for automating the identification of IT-related issues and their resolution. AIOps utilizes the data collected from application and infrastructure to monitor assets and have visibility into dependencies within or outside of the IT systems.

What’s Driving the AIOps Adoption?

Speed, scalability, and complexity are three…


The ever-growing array of digital channels has made it imperative for businesses to create omnichannel experiences for their customers. To reach out to a larger customer base, delivering content across multiple channels, such as a web page, mobile app, IoT devices, and even AR, VR devices have become critical.

This rising demand for creating unified UX with faster time-to-market has to lead to the adoption of headless CMS- the “API First” approach to application development.

Content Management Systems (CMS) have been there for almost two decades now. These traditional CMS are for web offers a CRUD UI, a way to…


In a survey conducted by 451 Research, 69% of the respondents said that they are planning to have a multi-cloud environment by 2019; highlighting that multi-cloud and hybrid is the future of IT.

“A multi-cloud strategy involves the use of two or more cloud computing services, such as AWS, Google Cloud, or Microsoft Azure. On the other hand, a multi-cloud deployment refers to the implementation of multiple SaaS or PaaS offerings for an application, offered by different cloud computing service.”

While businesses swear by the benefits of the cloud, they are acknowledging the added advantages that multi-cloud adoption offers. Vendor…


Software is a great combination of artistry and engineering. Thus, when hiring a software developer, it is important to look for traits that are a blend of technical proficiency and creativity.

Meeting project deadlines, new technology adoption, team collaboration- a software development engineer is generally expected to possess essential qualities like these. And, irrespective of the technology that a developer masters in, the regular habits of a professional developer are the same. Here, we are going to talk about three such critical traits in a developer that set them apart from the rest and successful.
