What is low-code? Low-code platforms

What is low-code?

A low-code platform provides users with a development environment where application software can be created.

By using a visual approach and drag-and-drop functionality, low-code platforms encourage rapid development, without the need for traditional computer programming.

Low-code development is ideal for organisations looking to embrace transformation and become more agile.

Top 5 benefits of low-code development

  1. Accelerate digital transformation: Using low-code allows project teams to respond quickly.
  2. Support rapid change: Development allows for rapid change and makes replacing existing systems much easier.
  3. Speed up development: The speed and flexibility of low-code development means delays are a thing of the past.
  4. Improve customer experience: Low-code gives your organisation a competitive edge and the fluidity to adapt to changes in the market or customer needs.
  5. Eliminate resourcing issues: Teams can be quickly trained and deployed, without the heavy costs associated with a sprint team full of back end developers.
