A product that today supports more than 10 thousand salaries processed every month and supports compliance recoveries for over 35 Million euros in consumer credit, every year.

Business requirements are growing

With business requirements growing and shifting at “warp speed”, together with a hype in hyper automation and hyper personalization, business solutions and Apps interfaces must change and adapt also at “warp speed”. This reality is crashing the traditional DevOps operations and technologies. Legacy systems are too heavy and too slow to change, also consuming huge amounts of money.

That’s why the no / low-code platforms gather a huge attention and investments in current corporate business strategies and operations, reducing costs and time to market, representing a strategic option or even more, it can mean survival against competition in the short term.

Low-code development is a solution for companies in all industries, who want to create integrated applications from the ground up with pre-existing management software and databases.

With a small effort and just using drag and drop, with some practice, even those who are not software programmers, can create an application in the blink of an eye. With accumulated experience, the most agile users may even end up developing applications in real-time, at the limit, while participating in the meeting where the same app is discussed.

Alternatively, to applications developed from scratch, whose programming takes a lot of time and involves the hiring of often very specialized labor, the development with a low code platform is more accessible in all aspects. After all, it speeds up the process and reduces development costs. It is necessary to overcome the barriers of learning curves, but this is no longer a problem in a short time. The shortage of software developers that Europe currently experiences (more than 2 million professionals are missing) forces organizations to search for alternative solutions because waiting for resources is certainly not an option.

And don’t think that low code is only used by small businesses. Multinationals from different industries including car manufacturers, banking, and governments are just a few examples of organizations that are leveraging the low code to improve their business processes.

Forrester Research estimated about a year ago that low-code platforms could account for 75% of application developments by 2021, up from 44% by 2020. The same analysts, in a study conducted with global business and IT decision-makers, published in March last year, say that 84% of companies have already adopted low-code platform or tool, and are very pleased to have had a positive and rapid return on investment.

On the other hand, Gartner has designed that the low-code development market should grow 22.6 percent to $13.8 billion by 2021. Previously, that organization had anticipated that by the end of 2024, 65% of all application development functions will be done through low code. The effect of the pandemic is felt in this growth because remote work has led to greater use of this alternative route for the creation of solutions.
