Why Low Code Usage Will Accelerate After Pandemic

Low code usage will grow in 2021 and beyondThe use of low-code software received a major boost from the COVID pandemic. It helps companies speed up digital transformation, reinvent their businesses and change the way they interact with their customers. Because of that, use of the platform has skyrocketed.

But now that vaccines are being used around the world, an end to the pandemic is in sight. What will that mean for the use of low-code software – will it continue to thrive, or will its use slowly wither?

To understand the answer, it’s worth first looking at why companies have turned to low-code during the pandemic. The ITProPortal article, “How the pandemic has reignited the use of low-code development tools among software developers” explains it this way: “As continuing waves of the pandemic compound the impact of the original lockdowns and cement more permanent changes to the way the world works, organizations have found that they now have no choice but to reinvent their established practices and client services.”

Why is Low-Code Sofware Important?

Low-code software, the article says, solves those problems. It points out that low-code makes developers more efficient by reusing components and templates. It concludes, “In short, low-code allows IT teams to make smarter and more efficient use of their time and skills, accelerating the delivery of new user experiences.”

In addition, citizen developers and line-of-business experts can use low-code/no-code platforms to write apps themselves, letting IT focus on more complex applications and on improving infrastructure.

All that means that the use of low-code platforms will continue their dramatic growth even after COVID. So concludes the RTInsights article, “Low Code Use Peaked During COVID, But Will it Stick?”

The article notes, “The pandemic may pass, but the potential for disruption never does. Many businesses had to face the fact that they weren’t ready to face even small hiccups in operations, much less months-long global disruption that changes the very nature of work and daily life.”

Digital transformation, the article says, is as important as ever. Businesses still need to get applications built fast. They need to increase the productivity of their IT staff. They need to tap into the expertise of business experts.

Low-code, it says, does all that. It concludes, “As long as companies develop a governance system, utilizing the power of low-code solutions could provide the quickest amount of value and provide an integrated experience without the months-long coding sprint of years past. These solutions have a great chance of sticking around as businesses prepare for the future.”
