Low-code development is enabling businesses to create applications faster than ever before. It’s helping them innovate quickly and build a competitive advantage. Low-code development enables the rapid creation of fully functional applications, enabling organisations to create new applications in a more agile and responsive way.
Gartner estimates that low-code development is growing at almost 25% per year. By 2024, low-code development will be the primary approach, responsible for over 65% of application development activity.
At Connectis, we’re passionate about low-code development and promote it to our clients. Why do we do this? Because its development is the future, and we’re helping our clients to embrace it.
What is low-code development?
Low-code application development has agile at its heart. Application development is highly automated, with visual interfaces and embedded functionalities enabling the rapid creation of complex applications. It represents a paradigm shift in the development lifecycle.
Low-code development tools can be used to build a huge range of software. Forrester splits its development into five categories:
- General purpose – website, ecommerce sites and more
- Databases – its systems can automate data processing, cutting development time and complexity
- Request handling– handle processing requests for fixed processes
- Process – applications that run business processes, such as forums and automated workflow processes
- Mobile first – digital development to build apps for tablets and mobiles
In the past, there would be questions about the quality of coding and the robustness of such applications. However, advanced low-code platforms can build highly sophisticated and secure applications faster than ever.
Who can use these development tools?
Low-code development breaks down barriers, enabling almost anyone to create software applications.
For decades software and application development required expert coders with years of experience. But now, these development tools use automated processes coupled with an easy-to-understand, user-friendly interface that simplifies the whole software development process.
It’s transforming the speed of development and its quality. Organisations can rapidly develop, test, iterate and improve their software. This means the UX can be refined more rapidly than ever before.
What are the benefits?
Low-code development offers enormous benefits for all organisations, customers, and stakeholders, including:
- Modern architectures
- Excellence in UX
- Ease of integration
- Fast delivery
- Perfect deployments
- Diverse Workforce
- Innovation and business agility
- Automated deployment and governance
