Drag-and-drop platforms enable developers to assemble applications without manual programming. Toyota, ConocoPhillips, and GlobalTranz are among those enterprises leveraging low-code to create business value.From the article
Low-Code/No-Code seems to be the buzz word of the current industry. There are virtually no product releases anymore recently, that don’t include features from this category. Every vendor is aiming to push something with this label.
Only, the idea is about as old as the software industry itself.
The sole purpose of software is to make technology available to people with less technical background. Software, in particular enterprise software, is meant to scale. To enable large scale processes to work. These processes most often require diverse backgrounds and experiences to work together.
Standardised software products, rolled out across entire companies, if not value chains, promises to allow exactly that. With no coding required. At least not, after the integration project finished.
What is different though, is the rapid speed of change. And low-code is the key to enable virtually everyone. The entire concept is about democratising technology a lot further. The big bet is to shorten integration projects and enable business users to innovate. With no IT-Department in the middle. Asking for huge budgets and long delivery periods.
Low Code, after all, is a very old idea, but with a new, much larger, audience for enterprise software. And that’s why it’s such a game changer for the industry.
