How to achieve Digital Transformation using Low Code

low code, neutrinos,platform,solutions

There isn’t a single industry that isn’t affected by digitalization in one way or the other. It, in turn, increases the demand for custom business applications. Businesses across all industries hope to simplify work processes, provide better services, and increase their profitability with digital transformation. The race for digitized business processes means that conventional approaches to development can no longer keep up with the pace. IT and development departments have to develop and provide user-defined web applications rapidly. According to the market analysis from Gartner and Forrester, the hour of low-code development platforms has come for precisely this reason.

It’s becoming increasingly difficult for companies to find suitably skilled personnel for their IT. By the end of 2017, the trade group Bitkom counted 55,000 vacant positions for IT specialists. That represents a growth of 8 percent in comparison to the year before. Application advisors and administrators are the most sought-after positions in companies, followed by software developers and IT security experts. Due to the lack of skilled personnel, the IT departments in user companies are often now fully stretched.

In addition to these, the user demands are higher than ever before. From their private lives, employees are used to applications that are mobile, straightforward, and quick. Long loading times leave people feeling frustrated just as long waiting times for orders. The German term “Sofortness” (immediateness) coined by journalist and blogger Peter Glaser signifies society’s demand to expect everything immediately. This immediateness is the “technological side of impatience” or “digital impatience.” It is especially true for employees from the millennial generation. Amazon is their department store, Spotify is their record store, and Netflix is their video store. The constant interaction with digital services at home creates high expectations for company processes concerning their speed and immediacy. These factors mean that “prompt development of business applications” is the biggest challenge for IT teams.

Low-code development platforms promise substantial acceleration in the development of applications. And according to the heads of IT and development departments interviewed by Forrester Wave, they are also honoring this promise. More than 50 percent of interviewees stated that their situation “improved significantly” by implementing a low-code platform. Read what constitutes a low-code platform and what advantages it offers beyond the conventional approach to development.

Today, there are a plethora of different low code development platforms. Even though they have certain similarities and sometimes have very similar functions, the concepts behind them are often very different. The key to successfully evaluating the various solutions is carefully examining the case studies. When you select your low-code platform, you should have the confidence that the low-code platform has proven efficacy in real-life customer use cases. Building a comprehensive reference document of low-code platform options that contain detailed project briefings is essential. The ability to contact current customers for reference is also a requirement to ensure that you arrive at the right decision.

Implementing a low-code platform is the right choice if one or more of the following statements are true for your company:

  • Your IT department is almost always overloaded and finds it tough to manage all the requests from business units and departments.
  • Your company faces difficulties in identifying and retaining suitable and talented software developers.
  • There is more time spent on maintenance of the IT infrastructure rather than improving your IT systems.
  • Your company is predominantly dependent on legacy systems that are operational with a lot of time and effort.
  • Many of your employees deploy their applications as they do not want to wait for the IT department to action their requests. The shadow IT thus created is a serious threat to your data security.
  • The IT landscape can no longer meet emerging demands on digital tools and makes it increasingly difficult for your employees to complete their tasks and sign new customers coupled with a negative impact on sales and the business.

Things to Consider While Finalizing Your Low-Code Platform Provider

The maxim “mobile first” is perceived in the digital age to a greater extent than was first envisaged. It means that business applications need to be developed specifically for mobile devices. The requirement for low-code platforms is to provide the ability to create applications that function on a range of different device types. Field personnel and sales representatives should also easily and quickly access information about products, spare parts, and service schedules to resolve customer concerns in real-time. 

Here are some critical aspects that you need to address: 

  1. Is the design a fit for your particular requirements? 
  2. Does the low code platform under consideration meet your usability expectations? 
  3. Is the solution robust in the areas of process management and data integration?
  4. Does the solution have ready-made connectors to SAP or various CRM systems? 

If this is the case, then applications that access data on these third-party systems can be developed much faster. A future-proof solution also distinguishes itself in that comprehensive support and consulting services are on offer as well.

And finally, you should ensure that the low-code provider has a transparent update policy.  The platform should serve you long-term, so you will need to confirm the frequency of software updates with the provider.
