Low code technology allows us to quickly and easily design and build your software. This streamlined process enables us to deliver better solutions faster helping our clients move from idea to prototype quickly and cost effectively.
Conventional application development requires the use of highly skilled code-writing practitioners and often involves getting in a long queue in the IT department to get new applications developed or updated.
Low-code development platforms (LCDPs) and no-code development platforms (NCDPs) are based on the principles of model-driven design, automatic code generation, and visual programming. These platforms are intentionally designed to target users that are familiar with processes and workflows within their business department, regardless of their coding experience. And once again, not only does this empower non-technical users, it matches them with experienced developers.
Below are some of the fundamental steps in the LCNC development journey: Define your needs and the desired outcome: Whether you are working on a customer-facing application or an internal business process, it’s essential to identify the business needs and the desired outcomes of your project at the outset. What is the problem this app needs to solve? Who will be using it? What information and data will it need to function?
Draw a business process or workflow: Using LCNC business process management (BPM) and development tools, users specify and document the desired processes and workflows. This is often achieved by identifying modules – by purpose – within the application and developing them as independent entities. For example, some modules may gather data, others may trigger an action or event. At this stage, the citizen developer can first build, then integrate the modules to achieve the desired outcome.
Test and deploy your project as an LCNC application: With a couple of clicks, the LCNC platform resolves all the back-end complexity of the process for users. When it is ready, IT specialists and/or beta testers can evaluate the application, and once their recommendations are implemented, the app can be deployed for general use.
