Appsmith November Newsletter

Hello Appsmiths, 👋

In this monthly edition, we are excited to share some inspiring success stories that highlight the value and impact of using Appsmith for businesses.

Let us introduce you to Duarte Carreira, the Data Analysis & Visualization Director at EDIA. Duarte shares how Appsmith accelerated their app development and maintenance, allowing them to build 80% faster. With Appsmith, they were able to rebuild a collaborative platform, a legacy internal ticketing app, and even complete a regulatory impact simulator project in just one week.

We also had the opportunity to connect with Oscar Santana, CTO at ART Fertility Clinics. They were facing challenges with decentralized and unreliable data management. By building custom extensions to their clinical management software with Appsmith, they were able to integrate their existing systems, improve operations, and gain control over their data.

If you're curious to learn and discover the best value you can achieve with your Appsmith apps, we invite you to watch our latest talk with Abhishek Nayak, CEO and Co-Founder of Appsmith.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming soon! 🫰
