Low-code is a visual approach to software development that requires minimal or even no coding to build powerful enterprise applications and process automations. Instead of complex coding languages, a low-code development platform employs the use of visual interfaces with simple logic and drag-and-drop editors.
Agile was introduced several years before low-code. It was such a game-changing approach to application development that it’s no surprise that the core principles of Agile are currently mirrored in low-code platforms.
Businesses that utilize both Agile and low-code have the advantage of implementing new applications and processes quickly, giving them an edge over their competitors by anticipating market trends and demands. A recent study conducted by Gartner reveals that approximately 65% of all application development activity will be a result of low-code applications by the year 2024.
Low-code platforms enable citizen development teams within large enterprises to meet their enterprise application needs without needing to turn to the software developement department, allowing those software departments to complete complex business processes much more quickly and efficiently, thus increasing overall organizational productivity.
