Demand for applications is far exceeding IT capacity. How to close the App gap?

April 20, 2019

The demand for business applications is growing at a rapid pace; it is significantly faster than the capacity of organizations to deliver them. The cost of traditional coding is high and resource-draining. Organizations that have turned to low-code alternatives in search of a better ROI have now discovered low-code development platforms will also no longer suffice, as software developers will still be required to complete the development.  So where is the majority of software development heading after the Low Code? The answer is No Code.

With the business demand for custom applications soaring, it is clear that the traditional development or Low Code approaches cannot keep pace. According to Gartner, market demand for application development, through to 2021, will grow at least five times faster than the IT capacity can deliver it.

Why will No-Code replace Low Code?  What are the key capabilities of a No-Code dev platform?

The traditional coding methods of Java, C, C#, Python, PHP, Rails, as well as a multitude of others, are gradually decreasing. A No-Code application development platform built on visual drag and drop with intelligent engines that can take care of the software coding, is required for IT and non-technical developers to create powerful applications.

A single No-Code development platform empowers organizations with a new data-driven development environment that is scalable, truly flexible, that has a clean canvas, where individual specifications become powerful business applications, without requiring code developers. Building end-to-end applications on demand on No-Code technology becomes easier, faster, and capable of fulfilling organizational application requirements from SMB to the Enterprise and individual Government agency requirements.

Benefits of a No-Code development platform

By bringing IT and the business together, organizations are entering a new phase where there is a profound shift in the industry that digital technology has created with the “I need it and expect it now!” businessdemands for instant improvements. To fulfill these high expectations, No-Code platforms must provide three fundamental functionalities that are integral for adoption within the business:

  1. User experience: User experience is key for quick adoption and continuous improvement. Complexity must be replaced with simplicity, with the ability to be infinitely configurable.
  2. Speed to market: To address the fast-changing market conditions, software development platforms if they are to survive must have the ability to take app ideas from concept to deployment within hours.
  3. Power of collaboration:To enhance productivity and team collaboration, IT and business units can now work together on a single No-Code platform to develop end-to-end applications and No-Code mobile apps that easily integrate with new technologies, such as AI and IoT. This power fosters collaboration and helps organizations significantly reduce its costs and move with agility towards real digital transformation.
