Benefits of Low-Code Software

White Paper Outlines the Advantages of Low-Code App Development

Low-Code Speeds App Development and Improves App Performance

Low-code application development is becoming a favorite among small, medium, and large businesses for building both web and mobile apps because low-code development can drastically cut time to application completion.

 

By using smartphone and tablets to speed the collection and sharing of information, coupled with back end systems for workflow, analytics and reporting, companies can gain significant and crucial competitive advantages.

 

To better utilize mobile devices, these companies must build hundreds of mobile apps to power daily business tasks. Low-code software automates many of the complex and time consuming parts of mobile app development, thereby accelerating development of mobile apps.

 

Low-code development tools automate routine coding so app development of both web and mobile apps is faster and easier.

 

Both developers and business workers can use low-code software to build applications. Business users can create data collection apps with ease. Developers can quickly assemble a wide variety of applications including workflows, reports and analytics from highly configurable components, increasing their productivity - often dramatically

Low-code development, often drag-and-drop tools, increase collaboration between business experts and development teams. They also reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve corporate security.

 

Low-code software helps companies build new, secure web and mobile applications systems. This software can also significantly boost the reliability of apps. Those apps can integrate with existing back-ends, multiple databases and legacy systems. Low-code tools can also easily integrate with the cloud.

Low-Code Enables More People to Build Apps

Low code drag and drop tools enable more people to build apps

Both IT staff and “citizen developers” -- business experts – can use low-code development platforms to write business applications. IT staff can quickly assemble applications from components, increasing their productivity. They can use the time saved to concentrate on higher-value work.

Business users without development experience can quickly craft cross-platform apps that do daily business tasks. Because low-code apps are responsive, they work flawlessly on any iOS and Android device.

As a result, low-code software makes:

  • business users (or citizen developers) proficient at building mobile apps possible for any business users
  • developers incredibly productive at complex mobile app development, including offline apps.

Low-Code Powers Business Agility and Digital Transformation

Low-code application development platforms improve businesses’ efficiency and agility. They can lead the way to digital transformation and answer the demands of a rapidly evolving workplace.

Low code app development platforms drive digital transformation

Low-code processes can improve every aspect of how businesses operate. These apps transform not only the development process, but the entire company allowing everyone to use technology to get work done.

Citizen developers, who best know department needs, can craft applications quickly, without having to ask IT for help. That allows them to immediately conceive and product useful business applications. IT can integrate “shadow IT”, by leveraging reusable code and making sure finished applications follow corporate standards.
