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 the application for your business. So, the time and resources that they are spending on the implementation of the application are saved.
Why organizations are 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 are showing 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 how low-code development is different as compared to traditional development. As more and more organizations are now investing in digital transformation, so they are looking for affordable implementation processes.
Low-code development platforms speed up the implementation process by eliminating the need for manual coding. Considering the fact that organizations need to regularly update the software, using low-code provides a competitive advantage over others.
The adoption of agile methodology ensures that the technology barrier should not hold back the growth of your organization. Low-code enables small teams or individuals to implement, prototype and deliver applications within a short duration of 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 the 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 to perform 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 finding out the best possible ways to solve them.
Furthermore, as we step into the implementation phase, AI is going to 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 the low-code platforms. The low-code development would help them to automate their tasks in 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.
