🦄 Generative AI has the potential to revolutionize software-based companies’ missions. Companies no longer need to worry about “how to build” their products but only about “what to make.” As a result, they can shift their focus from technology-driven to product-driven development.

👩🏻‍💻 With the help of rapidly evolving advanced AI tools, software engineers can create high-quality code in any language for various tasks and domains. From backend microservices to frontend UIs, databases to data analytics pipelines, infrastructure as code to deployment automation, and security — AI simplifies and streamlines the software architecture, development, configuration, testing, documentation, deployment, and maintenance processes.

📈 Companies can devote more resources to their core business, achieving product-market fit, expanding their customer base, accelerating innovation, developing intellectual property not boilerplate code, and becoming efficient and profitable.
