We believe low-code is the Future of Software

The health, economic and business challenges of the 2020s mean digital transformation and automation are no longer projects – they’re survival tools.

Yet many organisations are still struggling with the basics

  • Their current technology can’t keep up with business change
  • They can’t access all the information they need
  • They’re still using manual methods to handle operations.

Building Software vs Buying Software

For businesses that make the commitment to change, the implementation quickly becomes a binary choice – build or buy? Building software using traditional software development methods is slow, labour intensive and expensive. The risks are high – and you carry all the risk.

Buying big-vendor software brings its own problems. You can’t differentiate yourself from the competition by buying the same software package. Moreover, you end up paying for features that you don’t need, missing features that you do need. Try to customise your package and you can quickly end up with the worst of both worlds – you compromise the integrity of the package and take on traditional software development problems.

Low-code is the solution

According to Gartner, by 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity. Many organizations have already moved their primary application development from traditional coding to low-code.
Here’s why.

Simplification

Lower time to competence, stack simplification, reduced development requirements

Higher Productivity

Rapid application development (8-12 weeks on average)
