The topic of Low Code is historically controversial and usually excites two main reactions among IT professionals. Some see Low Code as a problem, others see it as a solution.
Low code can be seen as the next evolution of the developer’s role. This methodology has the ability to supplement human labor while facilitating the automation of what is already being done, reducing errors while elevating the role of the developer in innovation.
Read more to understand how a Low Code platform and approach can work for your organizations and how others have adopted this methodology.
What is Low Code
Low Code is a methodology focused on creating an architecture that requires significantly less coding than other approaches and focuses on reusability as a means to drive innovation of new processes, products or services.
Low Code delivers more value than a rigid, out of the box solution, but still delivers speed and gives developers the ability to customize, transform, and orchestrate complex end-to-end business processes.
Will Low Code replace developers’ work?
Prioritization of projects is directly related to time and resources. In other words, the amount of coding required for development. When more code is needed, there is greater risk and more opportunity for problems.
Coding demands a team to write, test, debug, deploy, manage test and production environments and more. The diligence required in this process means that any problem will cause delays. Delays in delivery can cause delays in business results and missed revenue.
Low Code promotes the acceleration of the development process by simplifying the work and enabling IT to deliver greater business results while still allowing for the customization and innovation of processes using manual code.
Benefits of Low Code for developers:
- Higher productivity and improved agility;
- functional risk management & governance;
- innovation for everyone;
- accelerated decision making and process optimization
Why are organizations adopting low code platforms?
Increasing delivery of key projects drives business results. These results include the predictable and strategic delivery of digitally driven outcomes to customers and partners in an evolving ecosystem.
The pressure to deliver outcomes is higher than ever and this demand often falls on the IT project backlog. It is no secret that the IT project backlog is growing due to resource constraints, process / systems complexity, and a digital ecosystem that is changing at an exponential rate.
These complexities can cause key business initiatives to take too long and consume so many resources that other important projects may have to be pushed aside.
A Low Code methodology leaves room for these projects that have historically lost priority while preparing you for the future of a certain increase in the amount of data generated and consumed by your organization.
What are the benefits of Low Code for organizations?
A Low Code approach unleashes countless benefits for companies that decide to adopt this methodology. These include:
In an older model, old systems and processes would undergo changes over a very long period of time with forced freezing, lack of continuity, and downstream compatibility issues because of the need for coding and specialized knowledge.
The Low Code solution offers flexibility by enabling you to connect systems and processes in a modular, simplified way. This simple approach promotes the adoption of new processes and technologies enabling your employees to adapt better to modernization initiatives.
Low Code is considered an optimizer promoting greater speed with improved results. Reusability and embedded governance immediately accelerates your development process.
Handling code starting with a visual model saves time while still allowing for the manual use of coding and also bridges the communication gap to increase understanding among non-IT stakeholders.
More features and possibilities
Promote innovation using Low Code to elevate the role of more experienced developers to more strategic projects, new products or services, or AI. Empower less experienced developers to build and maintain key integrations leveraging a reusable foundation.
Experienced developers are in high demand and are often a costly resource for organizations. Low Code allows your team to deliver the highest level of impact for the business.
Low Code promotes greater democratization of processes, favoring IT teams and simplifying the developers lifecycle, speeding up individual contribution. It also enables professionals with a less-technical background to contribute to less-complex projects.
Low Code improves the communication and collaboration of business and IT professionals by providing a common method for understanding the holistic view of each project.
Is it worth investing in a low code platform?
Low Code platforms are the perfect solution for organizations seeking to embed agility into their processes while enhancing security, accelerating delivery all with a lower total cost of ownership.
Are you interested in how Low Code can help you? Check out this message from Digibee CTO and Co-founder, Peter Kreslins:
“You, the developer, have a lot to do. For the company, it has been increasingly difficult to attract talent like you. So, having something that pushes you, that speeds you up, that helps you on a daily basis, allows you to increase your focus on the important things. The rest, which can be automated in a very intelligent way, leave it to Digibee because we will speed you up.”
