‘The Hurdle’

The traditional method of application development acts as ‘the hurdle’ in the path of digital transformation since the conventional way of application development is:

  • painstakingly long and slow
  • prone to human errors
  • complex to understand
  • unscalable and expensive

To enable digital transformation and improve customer experience, enterprises need to rethink their application development methods and upgrade accordingly.

Cometh the “Low Code Platform”

Low code platforms simplify the entire application development cycle by enabling IT professionals and citizen developers to develop business applications rapidly without going through the traditional lengthy methods. This platform employs visual and declarative techniques like drag-and-drop tools, thereby minimizing manual coding.

According to a Gartner study, “Globally, most large organizations will have adopted multiple low-code tools in some form by year-end 2021.” Low code is becoming a mainstream choice in insurance companies, banks, and the public sector to solve complex business needs and enable agility.
