In the fast-growing business scenario, today companies are looking for solutions that can help them deliver their services to customers promptly. Delivering services effectively and efficiently is the key to staying competitive. To improve work productivity and respond to the market quickly, there are only very few organizations that have the luxury to hire well-qualified website developers.
Many IT projects are getting into pending lists due to a shortage of developers with the required skills. Therefore, organizations have been adopting hyper-automation techniques such as the adoption of low-code and no-code platforms to boost their operational efficiencies.
Low code allows professional as well as non-professional developers to build an app using simple interfaces and drag-and-drop features with basic coding knowledge. On the other hand, No-code is one step ahead of low code as it allows even non-developers to build an app with no coding experience, making it a great fit for organizations that need to utilize their in-house talent for simple web projects. Therefore, No-Code has led to an increase in the need for Citizen developers. Who are they?
Citizen developers are non-IT developers who can develop an application with Low Code and No Code Platforms with minimum IT expertise. According to reports of Gartner, it is predicted that by the end of 2026, developers outside formal IT departments will account for at least 80% of the users for low-code development tools, rising from 60% in 2021.
Some of the popular platforms like Mendix, Appian, Microsoft Power Apps, OutSystems, and Zoho Creators help create custom applications without extensive coding knowledge.
Let us check out what benefits companies can reap by leveraging Low-Code and No-Code platforms-
Speed-up Development Process
Low-Code and No-Code platforms allow users to build custom mobile applications with basic to no coding knowledge that too much quicker as compared to traditional coding methods. It allows companies to deploy application-based projects at strict deadlines and respond quickly to the changing business needs of clients.
As low-code and no-code platforms come with default collaboration tools allowing companies to work together on projects. The platforms allow us to share insights, and feedback and create user-friendly dashboards enabling better collaboration. It ensures transparency and authenticity within the organization and thus closely aligns with the client’s requirements.
Time and Cost-effective
Developing applications with traditional coding approaches is time-consuming, but low code platforms streamline the whole process and help in automating tasks, thus freeing up the employees from manual work and helping them focus on strategic tasks. Additionally, by reducing the need for resources, these platforms significantly reduce the hiring cost as well as the cost involved with higher traditional software development methods.
Low-code and no-code platforms are scalable and allow businesses to scale as the demand increases, thus business operations are not halted to upgrade the system as per the increased user base. These platforms can also be suitable for complex projects as these low code platforms have integration capabilities, making it convenient to connect with new systems as the business expands.
Low-code and No-Code platforms offer options to users to tailor the solutions to their needs. For instance, users can drag and drop pre-built elements to design the user interface of the application as per their specific requirements. It aids in the customization of the application’s look and feel without the knowledge of writing code.
As technology and digitalization are growing at unmatched speed, utilization of these platforms is skyrocketing and becoming the future of software development. A low-code or no-code approach can’t replace traditional developers and coders, but it boosts app development in a way that was not previously possible. Additionally, it enjoys the perks of being cost-effective and scalable and streamlines the whole app development process.
We at Canopus Infosystems, by leveraging No-Code and low-code platforms can help you to build applications that are compatible with various devices and platforms by prioritizing the clients’ requirements that can be suitable to reach a broader user base.
