What you need to know about the no-code / low code landscape

No code and low code platforms have lately triggered a lot of excitement

social media

Among other things, they are considered as a means of providing business users the opportunity to create their own internal software solutions – and they themselves eliminate bottlenecks, technological gaps, excessively high IT requirements, app-sprawl, and even shadow-it, told the bone one day No -Code / Low code for software provide true promise: the company’s full digital transformation? asked the Venturebeat

The appetite on it is real. My team asked 500 IT and company professionals in the US in the first half of last year, and 95% of them stated that they have already been or accepted will incorporate no-code / low code tools shortly. According to Grand View Research by 2027, the value of the low code / no-code market is expected to reach $ 86.9 billion, with a number of start-ups and large companies – from Microsoft to SAP to Salesforce – invest in.

Or construct your own NO code / low code platforms. What is a little lost in Hype but is that “No-Code / Low Code” is actually a multi-faceted and technologically versatile category of software? The solutions vary greatly in capacity, functionality, and purpose. To fully understand the current and potential usefulness of no-code / low-code, you need a basic understanding of the layout.

‘Low-code’ versus ‘no-code’

Low-code and no-code tools The tools are noticeably different. They serve two different purposes and create different types of value. They also require different strategies to implement.

At a basic level, most low-code platforms require users to know how to code and no-code platforms do not.

Low-code tools are great for accelerating development speed between technical teams, but if you’re not an engineer, creating a solution using a low-code tool, or making changes to the solution, you’ll have to go through the same hoops you have to do for any other piece of technology: contact IT or an in-house developer, wait for the problem to be resolved, or undergo intensive training yourself.

This is important to note because unless you have a plan to involve your entire company in the implementation of the low-code tools, the tools may not do what you thought they could do in terms of freeing up users. commercial users to create their own technology or process solutions.

No-code platforms, on the other hand, are generally accessible via drag-and-drop functionality. They typically don’t require end-users to understand how things work “under the hood.” “They have their own limitations, however: no-code tools that are not extensible or not approved by IT, for example, create limitations for business teams who still need other solutions to improve business processes or solve operational problems in other ways.

Adoption Trends

No-Code / Low-Code Tools are designed for a variety of use cases. Here are just a few of the most popular applications to date:

Web Development. The initial wave of no-code / low-code tools was specifically focused on helping individuals and small businesses build websites. Until recently, it was impossible to do this without at least knowing how to write HTML.

But thanks to the then-innovative drag-and-drop functionality (and the use of plugins), these tools are still popular with individuals and small businesses today and have made it possible to build working websites even if you don’t HTML capable.

App development. A number of no-code / low-code platforms have been developed to make this easier and are widely used to reduce the workload of IT teams that might otherwise be hooked for manually creating this type of functionality.

They can generally be divided into three categories: 1) low-code tools to accelerate IT control of app development, 2) true no-code tools that enable business-oriented app development with minimal to no IT effort, and 3) tools that enable vendor-driven, low-code app development and are generally used to extend the functionality of existing apps on application platforms.

Task automation – Many no-code / low-code platforms are specifically designed to automate tasks and processes, such as tasks related to updating data in cloud systems, which are becoming increasingly popular in the enterprise, although these solutions tend to be “low-code” in terms of the level of technical competence they require.

System integration. There is another category of low code / no code that focuses on systems integration (Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).) As Gartner puts it, these are “cloud services that enable the governance of integration flows that they connect any combination of local and cloud-based processes, services, applications and data within individual or multiple organizations. “

Enterprise Considerations

The no-code / low-code opportunity is to fundamentally change the paradigm in which IT and business teams operate, turning IT from an in-house service provider responsible for creating custom technology solutions into a capable body However, enabling such a change will require the involvement of not just IT, but also the business.

That is far from a sure thing. While the appetite for low / no-code in most companies is strong, many early adopters have faced adoption challenges due to implementation errors and unrealistic expectations. To mitigate that risk, there are a few important things to keep in mind.

First, the goal of no-code adoption should not be to foster full operational independence of IT. IT should maintain governance and awareness of the company’s technology stack.

On the one hand, to mitigate risk and ensure that commercial teams are supported when necessary. d) Business teams using no-code tools to create their own unapproved and ultimately unsupported tools create even more shadow IT, adding more complexity and inefficiency to the business. delivery does not deliver on the full promise of technology, which must include business empowerment. In the survey my team conducted, we found that 86% of companies see their plans being delayed due to a lack of technical resources.

The best no-code / low-code implementation strategy follows a specific pattern. First, a tool or toolkit is discovered and recommended by the business or recommended, it establishes a model for business LED development using the no-code / low-code tools by simultaneously creating the governance, enablement, and solution delivery support. 

In this structure, I’ve seen dozens of organizations going through just delivering a handful of large projects a year, to hundreds of people. of projects spawned, in fact, across multiple departments.

The promise of democratized development

With the right strategies, structures, and models, no-code / low-code tools will unlock a new era of enterprise innovation. will do on your own; Technology is not a silver bullet. To use it effectively, your organization must collectively commit to all aspects of the endeavor, from research to adoption to embracing a democratized technology development culture.
