Today almost all businesses are using applications to automate their tasks. However, the development of custom applications can be an expensive task, especially for small businesses. This is the point where no code applications come to the rescue. The low code platforms make it possible for you to configure the functionality of custom applications.
It means that you no longer need to hire a costly developer to develop your business application. So, the time and resources that they are spending on the implementation of the application are saved.
Why are organizations increasingly adopting low-code platforms?
Notably, the popularity of low-code/no-code development platforms is constantly growing amongst businesses. According to Forrester, since businesses show a lot of interest in the low-code development platforms, it has raised their annual growth to around 50%. Moreover, the growth is expected to touch the $15 billion mark by 2021.
The statistics forced many other businesses to think that low-code development is different from traditional development. As more and more organizations are investing in digital transformation, they are looking for affordable implementation processes.
Low-code development platforms speed up the implementation process by eliminating the need for manual coding. Because organizations need to update the software regularly, using low-code provides a competitive advantage over others.
The adoption of agile methodology ensures that the technology barrier should not hold back your organization’s growth. Low-code enables small teams or individuals to implement, prototype, and deliver applications within a short time.
Besides, it helps the organizations to reduce extra costs that are required to hire trained developers. A person with minimal coding knowledge can easily develop new applications main maintain them.
Will Low-code development surpass traditional coding in the future?
No doubt, AI can’t need for human beings for essential jobs, but it allows you to automate the process to some extent. If we observe the entire software development life cycle, low-code can’t help to produce innovative ideas. Still, it enables you to test them.
Thus, the technology can replace humans with repetitive tasks, allowing you to focus on tasks that matter the most for your business. Human intervention is needed to focus on business problems and find the best possible ways to solve them.
Furthermore, as we step into the implementation phase, AI will localize, internationalize, internationalize, test and deploy the applications in the future. To make it possible for businesses to focus on important and interesting tasks that require human intervention.
It is worth noting that many small businesses are still not aware of the technology, and there is a need to create awareness to switch to low-code platforms. The low-code development would help them to automate their tasks on a limited budget. As for the need for IT experts, organizations will be hiring them to work on custom workflows and complex integrations. But they are only required when an organization lacks internal resources to perform this job.
