Low Code / No Code Development Platform

Low-code development platforms (LCDPs) are also called low-code application platforms (LCAP). They are model-driven development software that provide a visual drag-and-drop- development approach. This facilitates the delivery of applications by reducing time consuming hand-coding as much as possible. These platforms allow organizations to design websites and apps with little knowledge of computer science or software engineering concepts.

To be categorized as a low-code platform, a product must provide an:

  • Interface (code or graphics based) for programming applications
  • Integrations to popular databases and enterprise applications

What are the main types of LCDP solutions?

Gartner identifies these different platforms that feature similar solutions to low-code development technologies. Each platform can meet the different needs of an enterprise. Below is their suggested decision tree for a procurement decision regarding an app development platform.

  • Low-code application platforms(LCAPs) provide a graphical user interface development experience for citizen developers. LCAPs are a solution to the growing application demands from the business and IT budget-related problems.
  • Multiexperience Development Platforms(MXDPs): Low-code development tools are also used in multiexperience development platforms. MXDPs use low-code development to increase the productivity of application development in different touchpoints such as web, mobile, wearables, chatbots, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
  • Process and business rule/decision management systems (BRMS): A BRMS is a low-code technology platform that implements, manages and executes business logic and decision processes.

What are the things to pay attention to while choosing low-code development solutions?

Here are a few questions you need to ask while choosing a low-code development platform:

Is it scalable?

Though the purpose of low-code development is mainly driven by developing relatively smaller and departmental applications, there are enterprise-wide LCDPs as well. As the number of users increases, being able to scale becomes a matter for a company. Therefore an organization should consider a scalable LCPD if they want to integrate low-code technology within the enterprise.

Does it have a no-code option?

Most low code platforms require some input codes for business logic and process flow descriptions that's why enterprises still need developers for low-code development. On the other hand, some platforms in the market have a no-code option which enables citizen developers to build applications with minimal involvement from the tech team.

Does it allow collaboration across business and IT teams?

Developing an application mostly needs teamwork. LCDPs enable users to interact with each other while they’re working on the application. Executives need to pay attention if the platform has collaborative working features.

Is it available on the cloud?

Some platforms took off as on-premise applications and have limited cloud support. It would be great to have a platform with cloud support since most organizations are either on the cloud or plan to be on the cloud soon.

Is it secure?

Security is an important concern for businesses from various industries. The right tool for businesses is the one that has all the required security certifications and is approved by your company's information security team
