Low-code application development is increasingly popular. But when will your organization benefit? Ask yourself the following questions. Is your organization running into IT capacity issues? Do you keep not getting certain things accomplished and want processes to move faster? Then you can benefit from low-code applications! In this blog, we further explain when low-code application development is for you.
Why get a low-code application built?
Low-code, no-code, high-code. All technical terms that may not mean much to you. Low-code simply means that it encompasses a software that requires very little coding. Needless to say, this allows you to build application(s) a lot easier. So this is a lot faster than using a “high-code” programming language.
Moreover, low-code is incredibly accessible, sustainable and you can use it even when you have little to no knowledge of it. In fact, it uses a convenient visual drag-and-drop system. That way you can immediately see what the application will look like. The advantage? It reduces the barrier to becoming a low-code developer.
Scenarios for getting low-code applications developed
So when do you need low-code application development? We outline a number of scenarios. Do you recognize yourself in 1 or more of the following? Then contact us for a no-obligation introductory meeting.
If you have capacity problems
Does your organization want a hope? Like accelerating internal IT processes, improving cybersecurity, approaching new markets and better serving your customers with better working software? But do you keep failing because you lack capacity? With too few developers or or technical staff, there is little time to work on new projects or maintain existing ones. When it comes to these kinds of capacity issues, low-code applications are incredibly useful.
If you want to scale up
After all, you can scale quickly and efficiently with low-code. Even without having to invest in additional hardware or software. With low-code, you can use existing coding frameworks and platforms such as Mendix. That creates more room for other work for people in the department, which in turn increases capacity. In fact, a low-code platform allows people with no or less knowledge to build and maintain applications.
So it gives organizations with limited resources access to high-quality software solutions they need. That way, your IT team can just deal with the day-to-day tasks. Moreover, it allows you to stay ahead of customer demand and thus ensure that all necessary tasks are completed on time.
When there is insufficient realization power
Do you want a lot with your organization and have the capacity? But don’t you get it organizationally to make drastic improvements? Then we speak of insufficient power of realization. A capacity problem may be the cause of that. It may also be that you do not yet know how to increase the power of realization within the organization. Low-code then opens up a whole new world of possibilities for you, AND provides realization power. Read more about how to increase your realization power with low-code here.
It is what Nuhi Stenvers, our COO, often says, “It releases energy.” Low-code takes care of this through its tremendously fast nature, which it owes in part to its visual drag-and-drop features. This frees up time for other things. Moreover, working with low-code is tremendously easy and efficient. And that, of course, is always welcome within an organization. Few people would say “no” to that. Right?
Read tip! Why low-code?
If you want your IT to be faster and more efficient
Do IT processes within your organization take a long time? For example, are you spending a long time creating reports in Excel only to have to link them in another software? With low-code, you can get this done tremendously quickly and efficiently! Moreover, the development of a low-code application also takes 10 times less time than if you were to create an application using a traditional development method.
Tasks and processes can also be completed and completed much faster due to the visual nature of low-code. It also means that fewer mistakes can be made during the development process and the solution can be deployed more quickly once it is ready for launch. Handy!
But even if you are using an application or software that will soon have an End of life, low-code is an ideal solution.
What kind of low-code applications can you have built?
Of everything! But it is mainly about applications that fully meet your needs and requirements. We call that a “100% fit with your organizations.” You can have the applications created entirely to fit your organizational needs perfectly. Moreover, low-code applications no longer need to be maintained by a select group of people who have a lot of expertise.

An example of a low-code application
For example, you can create an on-boarding program for new employees. You can then also immediately link the new employee’s skills and data with the software your HR staff uses.
In short, everything is made a lot easier and faster with low-code.
How can you get low-code applications developed?
Developing a low-code application is not something you do alone. For this, you also need, for example, your colleagues, manager, department head, and the IT department. You want all of your organization to participate.
Just imagine: you work in the Finance department and working in the old excel lists is no longer efficient. Those don’t even work with the accounting package you are using. You think that could be better. But you can’t just go and connect a low-code application to that accounting package. To harness the power of low-code, the organization must also be “ready” for this new and faster way of working. That means mobilizing people and departments to get the most out of it.
