Low-Code is defined as a visual approach to application software development that enables citizen developers with little to no traditional coding experience to create complex and high-functioning enterprise applications. Low-code platforms allow users to utilize visual user interfaces and pre-made templates to create code instead of writing repetitive lines of code.
According to Gartner, low-code development will be responsible for more than 65% of all application development activity by 2024. Low-code platforms can increase productivity, reduce wastage of financial resources, and faster digital transformation.
Why Is Working With Low-Code Easy?
Low-code application development can enable citizen developers with limited traditional coding knowledge to create and support complex enterprise applications and support source code throughout the application’s life cycle. Low-Code also provides users with a wide variety of customizable and personalizable pre-made user interface templates.
80% of organizations have stated that citizen development initiatives have provided their IT departments with more breathing room.
2) Visual User Interface and Drag-And-Drop Editors
Visual elements are a crucial factor in how customers and clients perceive your business. Therefore, your business’s website and enterprise applications need to have an attractive and ergonomic user interface. Low-code platforms can allow your business to create visually rich user interfaces using visual editors such as drag-and-drop editors.
Drag-and-drop editors allow developers to simply ‘drag and drop’ any visual elements they want to be included in their software, with the associated source code automatically being supported. Corteza, Planet Crust’s digital work platform, is equipped with a low-code drag-and-drop page builder. It can make application development more accessible than ever before.
3) Customizable Pre-Built Modules
Low-code application development platforms eliminate the need for businesses to create core application modules from scratch. Furthermore, low-code technology can provide businesses with ready-made modules for customer service management, sales process management, data collection and analysis, and much more. These customizable, pre-built application modules contain core functions that can be reused to create multiple enterprise applications.
Low-code application development platforms can help businesses automate various repetitive, time-consuming business processes that would otherwise have to have been performed manually by an organizational sales representative.
This can allow your business to increase organizational productivity, facilitate cross-departmental collaboration, minimize potential errors and automate customer service procedures.
