What is Low Code Technology?
Low-Code/No-Code technology is a method of designing enterprise applications that use innovative and personalized features. In other words, it allows companies to design and develop applications with little or no coding. You can build your application using a visual builder, ready-to-use code snippets, form and report templates, and built-in connectors.
The Future of Low Code
The popularity of low-code platforms is exponential and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. We therefore believe that with the advantages they offer, it would be a wise investment for a company.
“By 2024, low-code app development will be responsible for more than 65% of app development activity.” – Gartner, Inc. “Low-Code Development Technologies Evaluation Guide” February 26, 2019
Companies that have chosen this solution
Large companies such as Zoho, Microsoft, and Odoo have embraced this new technology.
According to Sophie Pietremont, “The advantage of this solution is that it allows for customization and personalization of applications. Whether it’s Microsoft or other companies’ platforms, this type of technology makes it possible to automate certain processes according to needs. Many of our partners, ranging from industry to retail, require custom applications to enable their return to work.”
The Benefits of Low-Code Platforms
The drag-and-drop method and configuration menus allow for minimal coding, resulting in increased agility in the creation of applications.
Faster Time to Market:
Low-code platforms have a faster time to market because they are less complex. Development can be sped up using over 100 pre-built apps, allowing users to start building their app immediately. These platforms eliminate traditional processes such as framework creation, data modeling, and user interface development, saving time on creation and marketing.
Minimum Learning Required:
Low-code means you don’t need the skills of a web developer to create your own application. It’s simple to learn how the platform works and create applications.
Low Maintenance and Deployment Costs:
The initial investment in a low-code platform is typically lower than that of a custom-built app created by developers. Low-code platforms are an affordable way to get the application you need. Whether you decide to do it yourself or work with a professional platform, the cost will be lower through low-code. The same goes for software maintenance, which will be much simpler and cost-effective for the company.
Finally, low-code platforms are ideal for companies seeking to build custom applications with specific requirements. With a bright future ahead, it’s worth exploring this technology further.
