Still, you may still have doubts about getting started with low-code. Because how do you actually do that? You may then run into a number of issues that may keep you from taking the plunge. While it brings enormous benefits to your organization. In this blog, we’ll tell you what you might run into and how to really get started with low-code. Read on quickly!

Lack of space and realization power

More and more organizations want to grow, speed up all business processes and stay innovative. In addition to this desire to innovate, as an organization you must also maintain all daily processes and operations. That work, unfortunately, often leaves insufficient space and realization power to achieve new goals. There is simply no time. Low-code can help you with this!

Low-code makes your IT accelerate. In fact, you can use low-code to develop sustainable applications with a 100% fit with your organization without you or your employees needing much IT knowledge. Ideal if, for example, you are using an application that will soon have an End of life, working with multiple IT vendors or if you have insufficient IT capacity. Moreover, the development process of low-code is 10 times faster than using a traditional development method. So more time for daily work and new goals.

So what makes the choice to start with low-code so difficult?

Even though low-code has so many advantages, getting started can sometimes be difficult. We outline below some of the questions or scenarios you may run into:

Does low-code fit my needs?

Perhaps your organization needs a link between two types of software to work more efficiently? Or do you want to build an application for your customers to track their usage? You might then wonder if you can achieve this with low-code.

As we mentioned above, low-code allows you to develop applications that fit your organizational needs 100%. You are not dependent on an off-the-shelf software that you can only customize to your needs to a certain extent. For example, consider an accounting software. If you subscribe to this with a provider, this software will always allow you to adjust only a limited number of settings. With low-code, you could build certain features from the accounting software entirely to your organizational needs.

Which platform should I choose?

When it comes to low-code platforms, there are many different options available. So which platform should you choose? The most popular platform is Mendix. Mendix is a Dutch platform which started in 2005 in Rotterdam and it is currently used by more than 4,000 organizations. But, of course, there are other options: such as SalesForce, which is a cloud-based platform for customer relationship management (CRM), among others. Especially if you are new to low-code development, you may not know what to look for when choosing the right platform. Which makes getting started with low-code difficult.

To help you decide, it is important to have a good understanding of what level of customization you need and what your budget is. At ChangeMakers, we’d love to help you make the right choice with our low-code consulting!

Can low-code be integrated with other applications?

Once a low-code application is developed, you encounter other questions. After all, how does low-code work with the current applications within your organization? Can you link the different types of software? So how does that work? Are people needed to implement low-code within your organization?
