The Rise of No-Code Development Platforms
One of the most talked-about topics in technology these days is how to deal with IT skills shortages. With the world’s seemingly exponential digitisation of services, social lives, and businesses, finding solutions to skill and knowledge gaps is more important than ever. Citizen developers can create viable apps rapidly and economically utilising Rapid Application Development (RAD) Platforms, such as No Code and Low Code, which enable anybody with little to no experience or understanding to make them. With the future of coding rumoured to be in the hands of these regular people, this technology is expected to rise in use and value.
According to ZDNet, “Forrester Research expects that the low-code market would expand 40% annually to $21 billion by 2022, while Gartner predicts that low-code application platforms will account for 65% of all app development by 2024.”
From RAD Platforms, it’s No Code that offers a particularly rich opportunity for organisations short on IT expertise or who have limited budgets to still have high-impact tech solutions. No Code, as a tech niche, requires no prior expertise and may be used equally well in a small business setting as it can in a larger corporation with an overworked IT team. No Code development systems provide a drag-and-drop user-friendly interface that can quickly generate ready-to-use apps in a variety of settings, from HR organisations to retail businesses. “As long as your requirements are basic and fit within the capabilities of the vendor you choose, this no-code solution is a good method to overcome human and legacy system error,” Declan Healey writes for Codebots. The results of automating operations like data collecting and order management can have a big impact on how well they fit into business processes and how well they improve overall workflows.
