A press release by our Platinum sponsor Webcon

 

A recent study by Foundry (formerly IDG) showed that 79% of companies that use low-code technology to create applications, deliver a maximum of one solution a year. It’s not even close to what a low-code platform is capable of. How to properly leverage low-code technology, and become an application factory that delivers dozens of solutions a year?

Low-code plays a key role now and will continue to do so in the future

Low-code development’s popularity has been steadily increasing for years now, with no signs of slowing down. Its appeal is that it gives users the ability to create software applications through a graphical interface, with little or no need for programming in the traditional sense.

According to the study published by Foundry (formerly IDG), which summarizes the results of a comprehensive survey of over 600 companies of all sizes on the use of no-code/low-code in a wide range of industries, 71% of companies see a pivotal role for no-code/low-code tools. At the same time, 65% say their use will increase over the next 3 years. This undoubtedly indicated the huge potential of no-code/low-code platforms. But low-code is not without a significant downside if it’s adopted without a long-term strategy in place.

How to make sure low-code will work long term

Low-code tools and platforms offer a faster and more inclusive development process. Business owners can create applications on their own, without waiting and without having to explain their requirements to someone else. What’s more, low-code is great for professional developers, too. Mature low-code solutions can make developers become considerably more productive – producing more applications faster and with smaller teams. Gartner predicts that low-code will make up 65% of application activity by 2024 – low-code is a true game-changer.

But as a recent study by Foundry showed, good, future-proof, and functional tool is not enough. Organizations need a certain strategy for long-term success. Without it, organizations end up with a host of orphaned apps and broken workflows. Long-term planning for low code requires thinking about things like durability, reusability, scalability, and agility.

During our session “It is not about making one application – it’s about becoming an application factory” we’ll cover the dos and don’ts of low-code application development, and explain how to ensure your organization is utilizing its full potential.

 

The presentation will take place on Tuesday September 27, 15:15-15:35, in room Apptio (4).
