Why Developers Should Welcome Low-code?
Why developers should welcome low-code? There’s plenty of reasons why low-code should be considered in nowadays development. I’ve read some of the articles about why low-code should be considered, and here I sum it all become three main reasons.
Nearly all developers agree, the number one reason to switch to low-code is speed. Write-once-run-everywhere reduces the amount of work developers must do. Easy integration cuts down the time spent writing boilerplate code, and generated code that performs well and comes bug-free dramatically reduces maintenance requirements and time-to-production. Your team will become more agile with shorter development cycles, their productivity will increase, which enables you to shift resources to more strategic and innovative initiatives. And the business will now be active participants in the application development lifecycle. Quick deployment allows developers to get back to work sooner.
- Easy Intergration and Collaboration
- Build Apps that Meet Business Expectations.
With quick development and the ease to use, low-code might be so flexible as flexible as the business requirements/expectations. Harking back to an earlier point, software projects are highly complex. Equally complex are the deployment processes that allow projects to go live. With low-code, the deployment is way more easy. A best-in-class low-code platform will provide tools for collaboration in four key areas:
- Collaboration portal:
Establish a central place where everyone involved in the application development process — from business analysts to traditional developers– can begin to evaluate the collaboration capabilities of a low-code platform. Features and functions like social feeds, comments, stories and feedback management that provide instant visibility and context into what is happening with the application can provide a deeper, shared understanding of the business goals and requirements.
- Within the development environment:
A best-in-class low-code platform has an integrated development environment that fosters collaboration through integrated communication, like feedback and stories tied to the context of the specific application.
- Mobile App for testing:
A mobile app for testing enables application validation and includes a social feed for users to be able to communicate feedback and make comments.
- In-app feedback:
Each app built on the platform has a built-in feedback mechanism, so users who are interacting with the apps can supply feedback right to the development team in the development.
With low-code, your business development will be more ‘agile’ than before.
