Low-code – Why you need to know about it
Today, everyone is in need of customized software. By digitizing your custom workflows, you can increase productivity and reduce the number of manual tasks.
However, traditional software customization takes too long and requires a special set of skills that are in short supply.
Low-code enables new talent to develop business applications rapidly and efficiently. This allows your business to always stay one step ahead – at a reduced cost.
Low-code development is fast and easy
Low-code is the future! It is a technology that enables you to create applications using visual and model-driven configuration tools. Common features are drag-and-drop tools, reusable components, and process modeling.
Low-code applications are faster and easier to develop and maintain than traditional software. Furthermore, the underlying platform ensures that your applications are supported by the latest technology, providing sustainable solutions.
Low-code development platforms have the potential to make software development 10 times faster than traditional methods. Consequently, you will need fewer resources to develop applications. In turn, this brings down costs drastically.
An innovative approach to business development
Although not all low-code platforms are made the same, some are designed to deliver complex core enterprise applications. Using open standards, they are easy to integrate with existing data streams and applications. Thus, these platforms can provide you with completely tailored solutions specific to your needs.
Yet, the typical low-code applications developer is not the traditional programmer. We call them business engineers. This is as a person with business- or domain expertise combined with engineering competencies. In other words, they have the necessary industry knowledge and strong analytical skills. Usually, they are also more interested in solving business problems than in programming in itself.
By empowering these business engineers with the right tools, you enable more talent, both inside and outside of your business, to participate in your business’ development. This leapfrogging of the IT talent gap can really fuel your digital transformation, boost innovation, and increase your development productivity.
Expect fast results
Within many industries, businesses have made themselves dependent on core enterprise applications made a long time ago. Although these applications still fulfill their purpose, they are often developed using now-outdated technology. Hence, they may no longer be fit for the modernization of your business.
Using low-code, you will see results immediately as you replace and renew your core enterprise applications. Low-code’s fast development speed reduces the risk in IT projects and shortens the gap between IT and business development. Instead of two-three years of software development, it enables you to develop applications when you need them. Thus, low-code brings the waterfall method to an end. No longer will you have to deal with objectives made at the beginning of a project maybe two years ago.
Adaptive and agile solutions
The lifetime costs of IT are under-communicated. Even maintenance is costly. But, in order to not fall behind competitors or to stay in compliance with new industry requirements, change is necessary. Therefore, having an agile and adaptive IT portfolio becomes important – especially for large enterprises. With low-code as a part of your toolbox, the ability to change and adapt can become a competitive advantage.
