Low Code Application Platforms
Businesses today are working with more data than ever before. Data needs to be captured, validated, and integrated with all the other platforms used by the organization. Traditionally, this is where a custom application may be required. However, more and more businesses are now adopting a low code platform solution instead of investing fully into building a custom application for their business-to-employee solutions.
In an ever-changing software landscape, organizations are looking for rapid development and deployment of applications that can be used to quickly reap the benefits. Low Code Application Platforms provide organizations with just the answer because they offer a very low cost of entry and provide much shorter time to build and deploy applications to their users.
As application needs changes, the ability to quickly modify or build a new app allows companies to be more agile and dynamic than ever before. On top of that, low code, doesn’t mean low functionality. In fact, the opposite is quite true. Low code platforms often come with pre-built connectors and components that work with many mainstream applications out there. So there’s no need to recreate what has already been done for you, and it allows developers to focus on the core business logic required rather than spend time trying to figure out how to talk to a variety of different applications.

Low code platforms are made to be development-friendly environments, but there is a direct correlation between complexity and an increase in the number of requirements the application needs to satisfy for your organization (provided these cannot be met through the use of some template).
Although some organization’s needs may be able to be met without the need for any custom code, these are low-code solutions which will require some level of developer expertise and applications design.
