Organizations need more application development and business apps than ever before. Users, partners, suppliers, and customers are all looking to do more business on mobile devices. The backlog of new apps or existing apps needing updates is only growing and IT is strapped to meet demand. Professional developers with mobile experience are hard to find and hire, and the talent doesn't exist in your organization. Well, that's not necessarily true: users who create apps might be living in your business already.
Companies are succeeding with the teams they already have within their organizations. They're using low-code platforms and no-code tools to empower citizen developers to build web and mobile apps. With these solutions, software developers can also build business applications faster.
Citizen developers are non-IT workers who build task-oriented business applications to solve business problems. They use intuitive, low-code app development tools to create new business applications for consumption by other users.
The trend is growing. More users in organizations are becoming tech-savvy and adopting new software and technologies to complete tasks efficiently. IT staff that support these users will be more strategic to their enterprise.
Data governance and citizen developer governance are imperative. Without proper oversight, enterprise standards for app development and security might be at risk.
