Why low-code?

Low-code makes it easier than ever to create flexible applications to get specific tasks done. Whether you are a business user looking to create your own apps or a developer looking to simplify organizational processes. But besides being easy to use, why is low-code so useful and why is it the future? We’ll tell you about that in this blog.

Read all about what exactly low-code is here.

Visual modeling provides overview

With its convenient drag-and-drop functionality and intuitive visual user interface, you can develop all kinds of applications as a low-code developer. With model-driven development, you can immediately see how the app will work and look as you build it. Moreover, you can launch the application at the touch of a button. Of course, this is ideal in the fast-paced world we live in today.

Components are reusable

Another big advantage of low-code is that it accommodates reusable components. Think pre-built modules, logic, templates, connectors and more apps that work on different platforms. An experienced developer can also customize and extend the components of a low-code app.

Collaboration is easier than ever

Built-in tools allow you to collaboratively develop tools for feedback loops, revision tracking, user stories, messaging and more. The visual nature of low-code ensures that everyone speaks the same development language. After all, we also often see that organizations go through an entire transformation process before implementing the low-code philosophy. In fact, low-code works best when all the relevant stakeholders within an organization are involved!

Scalable environment provides flexibility

A low-code cloud platform offers immense flexibility, support for continuous delivery, and run-time and dev-time scalability on demand. You can implement new apps and quickly extend existing apps to your customer’s requirements and (developing) organizational needs.

Application lifecycle management

Holistic low-code platforms support Agile development techniques and DevOps tools. With this, it supports all phases of the app development lifecycle with tools for streamlining project management, requirements management, versioning, testing, deployment and more.
