Low Code Development- An intro to the future of software development
Let’s dig deep into the future of software.
What exactly is Low code and how it can affect your business, whether you are dealing with the HR and Finance, Digital Marketing or Sales industries?
Low-code enables developers of varying experience levels to create applications for web and mobile, using drag-and-drop components and model-driven logic through a graphic user interface. Low-code platforms enable non-technical developers to write code while still supporting professional developers by abstracting tedious plumbing and infrastructure tasks required in application development.
Some of the technologies like IoT, AI, machine learning, and blockchain following a test and learn approach, which means that Low-Code makes exploring and integrating next-generation technologies accessible for business users and developers with drag and drop ease, enabling them to create functional prototypes and iterate toward their next great application at scale.
Some of the additional benefits of Low Code include the affordability, faster development speeds and bigger business agility.
As a recruiter, I can tell you that hiring experienced software developers is not only costly but demanding and the same goes for onboarding and training them and meeting their needs, especially when you have to all of this remotely. This makes it a very pricey proposition to keep a software developer on staff and hiring a full-time developer may not be cost-effective for organizations that only need to build applications on an as-needed basis. Which is where low code developing saves the day.
Unlike classic software developing that usually never meets the deadline, low-code platforms can intensely speed up the software development process. Low-code platforms make use of boilerplate code, pre-built templates, and other “building blocks” that shorten the development process itself.
By making software development drastically quicker, low-code development platforms also make your business more agile and flexible.
Sometimes making changes to your enterprise software could be a long and costly process as you wait for the project to be completed. Low code enables you to learn how to develop applications yourself with a low-code platform by making changes immediately, saving time and money.
