Saving time with Low-code development
By13 Dec 2022
In the 21st century, also known as the digital era, more than ever, there is a need for speed in every area of our daily lives. We want high-speed cars, supersonic technology, fast food, and better ways to exchange information and get the job done more quickly. High speed is becoming a must in development and that is where Low-Coding comes in. Low-Code is a method that delivers quick actions when it comes to building software applications.
What is a low-code?
To put it shortly, low-code development is a way to build software applications and processes faster by reducing the need to write code. Instead of creating new, custom codes and syntaxes from scratch and using complex programming languages, low-code developers use ready-to-go, user-friendly UI components and visual development tools, such as drag-and-drop models and point-and-click interface creation to create, deploy and maintain powerful, efficient, complete applications with up-to-date user interfaces, data and logic.
Low-code development techniques
Low-code automates workflows across the company using capabilities like component-guided, solution blueprints, and other visual workflow automation tools such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Artificial Intelligence, Business Process Management (BPM), Decision Rules and Case Management.
Some of the low-code platforms include OutSystems, Mendix, Appian, WordPress and so on.
Benefits of low-coding
Customer demand and expectations in the IT world are already reaching their limits and are still increasing rapidly. A lot of times developers are having a hard time keeping up with work without decreasing the level of quality. Sophisticated apps require time, but like in any business, time is money.
Even though low-code will never replace tech developers, it allows them to deliver higher efficiency, productivity, creativity, and more work with less effort and time.
According to a Censuswide survey, in 2022 most CIOs demonstrated that learning how to weather the storm, respond to shifts, and remain flexible are the keys to resilience.
Moving into 2023, companies are starting to face new challenges. Because of that, they are increasingly turning to alternative solutions to help them plan and prepare for future uncertainties with security, talent shortage, and potential global recession.
