The last few years have been quite productive for the software industry and the “software-defined economy”, which led Computer and Communications Industry Association to state that “There is no difference between the digital and the traditional, offline economy anymore. The economy is digital.” That said, to be involved in this software-defined economy, it is not necessary to refer to the coding environment and be a die-hard IT specialist. Such concepts as “no code” and “low code” bring a sort of balance to the IT world and business. This technology provides access to the creation of mobile applications, giving companies the agility and autonomy to solve business problems with their own efforts and without waiting for IT to lead the way or do it for them.
No Code Development Has Offered a Solution to the IT bottleneck
Just 5 years ago, the creation of business apps required code-heavy processes and highly skilled developers. Despite the fact that highly technical software development will always play a key role in business, the growth of no code and low code development has helped to democratize the access to technology for a wide range of business users and to overcome many difficulties, such as high development costs and long time frames, thereby increasing productivity and profits.
No Code Trend Promotes BYOD Approach
No code movement, a trend that recognizes the importance of technology but at the same time makes it more accessible to the ordinary employees, has reinforced the position of BYOD approach in business. (BYOD, Bring Your Own Device, is a popular phenomenon in our days, when employees use their mobile devices at work.) No code and low code movements are helping employees feel more ownership of their work due to the problems they solve and benefits they can achieve thanks to the apps that they created themselves for their work.
Today’s combination of cloud-based computing, no code development, mobile connectivity and an array of device options opens new levels for business. The basic sense is not to introduce new work requirements and skills but rather provide freedom to workers to discover the best and most innovative ways to develop and achieve new horizons.
