Insight: Low-code

In this insight, we analyse what to make of low-code. Low-code technology is becoming increasingly popular within organisations, due to the fact that software can be developed in a relatively simple way. With low-code users get building blocks and drag-and-drop mechanisms to create apps much faster than before.

Not everyone is familiar with low-code. That is why, we analyze the different low-code solutions and strategies, we will look at the questions of what it is and what exactly you need to take into account. In principle, there are two different kinds of low-code which you can use: a pure low-code platform on which you build standalone applications which operate independently and a low-code platform solution from an IT supplier which adds functionality or extend the platform.

Low-code development versus low-code platform


Various players on the market are working on such a pure low-code platform. Mendix and OutSystems are examples of this. They are used to fasten application development. On the other hand, you have the SaaS suppliers such as Salesforce, Oracle, SAP, ServiceNow and Microsoft, which also offer low-code possibilities but from within a platform. We will explain what these different vendors do and what makes them unique.

There are also more and more vendors combining low-code with other technologies, such as integration platforms, business process management and robotic process automation. The merge of such technologies is also referred to as hyper-automation.

Sapient.ai CEO: Let developers develop, not test

Despite the rise of automation accelerators and all forms of Artificial Intelligence (AI) - generative or otherwise - software application developers still love to develop, the clue is quite definitely in the name. But the recent popularisation of programming bots has not been without its consequen... Read more

Why lower-code automation needs governance

Why lower-code automation needs governance

With the undeniable rise of low-code helping to fuel the dual-carriageway of software application development that is no-code, the spectre of so-called ‘citizen developers’ has arguably given these practitioners a bad rap overall. Given the rise of both disciplines (sometimes in scenarios where... Read more

A new first-line for developers: Hello Automation World

Hello World! It’s not going away, but soon, this rite of passage first-line of code that every developer writes when they first cut code might change. Rather than programming an instruction to display those two time-honoured words on screen, fledgling developers could be instructing a bot, callin... Read more

Appian paves way to low-code process automation

Low-code is evolving. With new developments in no-code (NC) travelling in the same direction as low-code (LC) and both disciplines now aiming to extend their influence into wider process automation technologies across both human and machine workflows, there is much to keep track of. In its posit... Read more

Software’s post-pandemic recessionary lag factor 

Knowledge is power. But further than any mere level of learning by rote understanding, we use the term ‘savvy’ to denote a particular level of practical knowledge and ability. Coming out of the post-pandemic period of preparation for the ensuing recession will (arguably) require more savvine... Read more
