In recent years, IT workers have become increasingly in demand. However, the supply of IT workers has not risen evenly along with it. Are you also struggling with insufficient IT capacity within your organization? Can’t find the right IT specialists to fix your IT infrastructure or make it work more efficiently?
Then you have a good solution on your hands with low-code. Why this is a good solution? We’ll tell you about that in this blog!
Reasons why you can’t find the right IT specialists
- The main reason you probably can’t find the right IT professionals is the current scarcity in the job market. IT specialists are currently in high demand, while the supply of qualified candidates is limited.
- Market competition also plays a big role. After all, you’re not the only one looking for IT workers. But of course, it could also be that you just really can’t find that one IT specialist you need for your IT job.
So what can you do? Because with a shortage of IT professionals within your organization, your IT projects can be delayed, innovation becomes more difficult, you can fall behind your competition and productivity within your organization is lower.
Low-code as a solution to insufficient IT capacity
Why can low-code be a solution if you don’t have enough IT capacity or can’t find the right IT specialist for your IT challenges?
Low-code is a way to build sustainable software applications without extensive knowledge of programming. This means that without that IT capacity and specialists, you can still develop software and solve IT problems.
Are you running into something else? Perhaps your IT department does not sufficiently understand your organizational needs, you work with multiple IT vendors or you have an End of life application. We have written blogs about that, too.
Read tip! Here’s how to get started with low-code
Citizen development with low-code
So with low-code, you are less dependent on trained IT professionals. In fact, with low-code, your employees can get to work building applications and automating processes themselves. We call this
. This is possible, for example, because low-code uses visual modeling with drag-and-drop elements.
Using low-code allows organizations to build custom solutions that meet your specific needs, rather than having to rely on off-the-shelf software that may not meet all your requirements.
You really develop from the core of your organization: you adapt the low-code application entirely to your organization, rather than having to adapt your organization to IT capabilities.
Benefits of low-code
In addition, low-code offers other benefits that make it an attractive solution as a solution to your IT problems. Some of these benefits include:
Faster development times
With low-code, applications can be developed faster than with traditional software development methods. This is because most elements are already available in the platform and less code needs to be written.
Because less time is required for development, the cost of developing software can be lower than traditional methods. In addition, there is no need to hire a full team of IT specialists, which also reduces costs.
Low-code platforms provide an easier way to develop and deploy software, increasing employee productivity.
With low-code, applications can quickly adapt and adjust to an organization’s changing needs because you are working from the core of the business. Especially when you apply citizen development.
Need help with your low-code solution?
Low-code is thus an ideal solution if you are struggling to find IT specialists or capacity. Indeed, it allows you to develop and implement software quickly and cost-effectively without the need for extensive IT knowledge. This can lead to faster development times, lower costs and higher productivity for the organization.
