Low-code app development is the hot new technology that’s creating a buzz in the tech arena. Forecasts state that it will grow and transform the market over the next couple of years rapidly. So, many companies are investing in low code and looking to reap its benefits in the coming years.
As with any new technology in the market, many are talking about low code. But what is the reality? Are the returns going to be as predicted? Will this technology truly deliver as promised and succeed? Let’s find out.
Low-Code Expectations vs. Reality
The Buzz: With multiple features on low-code platforms helping to create fully functional applications, the promise is to deliver these apps in half the time and half the effort – all of this without coding.
The Fact: While it is true that the model-based app development with various functionalities simplifies the process, it is possible to develop only simple apps with ease. In case of complex functionality requirements, developers will need to build outside the low-code environment.
That is why it is vital to evaluate low-code application vendors to check how well their platform can handle complex requirements. While some platforms require you to build externally and integrate, others deal with complexities on their own.
The Buzz: If new solutions cannot connect and operate with existing systems, they won’t be of much use to enterprises. Low code promises easy integration with existing systems to ensure seamless operation.
The Fact: Integration is possible, but via web services in most low-code solutions. So, integration would not be possible in cases without any web service interfaces in the existing system. It may require additional development effort, making it more expensive as well.
The Buzz: As against long and tedious software development procedures, low-code simplifies the application development process, ensuring faster release cycles that help businesses get to market faster.
The Fact: Low-code platforms do help enterprises get their applications to market faster. But this holds good as long as everything from prototyping to integration is possible on the platform itself, with no need to go elsewhere to create something. Limitations that require developers to move out of the low-code platform will naturally require more time.
Multi-Experience Development Platform – The Future
Today, enterprises are going beyond just web and mobile application development. The next big thing is the Multi-Experience Development Platform (MXDP) powered by low code. Multi-Experience Development Platforms help enterprises develop innovative omnichannel experiences using AI, ML, and IoT. Read more about the capabilities and benefits of MXDP here.
