How Coding Has Changed the World and Transformed Our Work

Added: 27th August 2021 by Honeywell

You use coding every day 

Are you reading this blog on a digital device or computer? Have you used Zoom or another video conferencing platform today to speak with a colleague or customer? Did you enjoy a good Netflix series at the weekend? If the answer’s yes’ and you use any kind of modern device in your day-to-day life, then you're using coding every day. Every technology we use relies on coding to perform its functions, and as work becomes more and more focused on digitisation, we would all struggle to do our jobs without it. 

What are the different coding languages?

At the most basic level, coding translates instructions and processes into a computing language. This allows us to create apps and software, build websites and online shops, play video games, publish e-books and much more. Coding is communication - words and phrases just for machines - and all the different languages are no more mysterious than Chinese, English, Portuguese, Spanish or French. 

Different operating systems, platforms, coding styles and intended uses require different coding languages. The most common include JavaScript, Python, SQL, PHP, Ruby, Java, and C#, but there are some more modern ones now, like Rust, Swift, and Hack and plenty more.

The 'internet of things' consists of every connected device: phones, tablets, bread machines, security systems and pressure cookers, amongst many, many others. According to Gartner's data, these 'things' already overtook the world's population in 2020, and we can expect to see over 20 billion devices in use eventually. So why not try to understand the languages of those devices? Understanding them better means we can better teach, develop, design and improve what they do.

Coding skills are helping us transform industries

Here at Honeywell we have a dedicated business unit using technology to help us disrupt the industrial sector. Honeywell Connected Enterprise (HCE) is reinventing how industries measure, analyse, and run their complex operations as we pivot from manufacturing to lead the Internet of Things (IoT) software revolution.  Honeywell Forge, Enterprise Performance Management Software-as-a-service, is one of our applications that is transforming how enterprises unify their data and make operational decisions. Some exciting initiatives that have come from that are already making an impact:

Our collaboration with Microsoft

We can now go to market with domain-specific applications built on the Azure platform to help achieve new productivity levels for our industrial clients. A real-life example of this would be seen in a managed commercial building, where real-time data could drive decision making on how to efficiently maintain the building (lights, energy and so on). Combining Honeywell’s domain expertise with the Microsoft platforms provides an unrivalled experience to our customers. 

Honeywell is a controls company with systems in hundreds of thousands of planes, buildings, industrial plants, and warehouses. That operational history is what separates Forge from other industrial data analysis offerings.

A partnership with Halliburton

This collaboration will provide oil and gas operators the ability to make more informed, data-driven decisions, leading to maximised asset values, improved productivity, enhanced worker safety and lower costs. 

Together, Halliburton Landmark's DecisionSpace 365 E&P cloud applications and Honeywell Forge will combine deep domain expertise and the latest digital innovations to provide unprecedented real-time insights into oil and gas operations.  

Honeywell’s acquisition of Sparta Systems 

Sparta Systems is an AI-enabled SAAS platform that will enhance our value to life sciences customers and increase our software capabilities. The innovation that stems from the union will enable new medical therapies to be brought to market with improved quality assurance, reduced compliance costs, and verified process performance in advance of the manufacturing process.

Put your coding skills to use at Honeywell - become a #futureshaper

If you are passionate about driving digital transformation and energised by building killer apps that meet high expectations for Performance, Scalability and Reliability (PSR), HCE is the next step you should consider.
