Why Low Code development should be on your radar

Posted:

Technology is moving faster than ever before and it’s more important than ever to stay ahead of the curve if you want to stand out. In this digital age, technology innovation is the key to staying at the top of your game. However, innovation can be achieved with application development but anyone in tech will tell you it’s not easy.

When it comes to enterprise, there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution that solves a business problem. Every company has its own unique problems that unified, generic solutions simply can’t fix. This is where a customised solution can really make an impact.

That solution is low code applications. Low code allows organisations to develop applications faster, using more capabilities with less dependency on standard developers.

According to Gartner, by 2024, three-quarters of large enterprises will be using at least four low-code development tools for both IT application development and citizen development initiatives.

For organisations looking to become agile, low code applications could be the way forward to improve efficiency by allowing them to build just what they need and make sure each teams’ requirements are met. Let’s take a look at what low code is exactly and it can benefit organisations in any industry..

 

What is Low Code?

Low code applications allow non-technical people to create their own applications without an extensive knowledge of programming. It involves dragging and dropping pre-defined blocks of code, or functionality, on a graphical interface with user-friendly structures to create apps for their particular needs.

It can be used to replace some traditional methods of hand-coding a full app, which allows coders and software developers to focus on software improvements. This enables them to work smarter and faster without spending long hours resolving issues or writing repetitive code.

 

How can it benefit my organisation?

It saves time

Less time spent writing lines of complex code means developers can focus on making the app the best it can be for the user. Low code means change happens as soon as it’s needed. Time is no longer a barrier to innovation.

It saves money

More apps built in less time means reduced costs. Low code applications come with 80% of the advanced functionality built in, the idea is your internal team can design the app and, once deployed, update it whenever necessary.

It increases agility

Creating an app using visual design instead of writing code is what we would call super speedy development. Low code gives your organisation the flexibility and scalability it needs to automate business processes end to end. Together with the fact low code provides automated testing, you’re onto a winner.

Your customers and employees will love it

Design by your people, for your people, low code applications are often deployed across the whole organisation, meaning employees need little to no training.  The speed and agility low code has to offer means you’ll always be ahead of customers’ changing needs.

It has power

In many cases, low-code development creates an easier way to build business applications. It can be a powerful tool for organisations that want to reengineer business processes without embarking on a sizeable, costly project.

With these low-code benefits, organisations are well equipped to quickly adapt and respond to fast-changing business needs and market trends.
