Time to Grow your Low-code Momentum

Organisations are changing their operating models and innovating rapidly to sustain and grow. The demand for rapid application development has always been high, with businesses historically relying on their IT departments to develop and deliver production-ready applications. But demand is outstripping supply which is why now is the time to grow your low-code momentum.

The Essence of Low-code

Low-code development platforms (LCDP), of which Microsoft’s Power Platform is one, represent digital tools that enable building applications with no deep coding knowledge. As a result, these solutions open many doors for non-technical users to contribute to the digital transformation of their organisations.

Microsoft’s Power Platform is a perfect fit for forward-thinking organisations, allowing them to rapidly deploy business apps. With the use of drag-and-drop features, components, and business process maps, everyone can create custom digital tools for their needs.

Benefits of Low-Code Development

With multiple possible advantages available it’s tricky to isolate a top list as the advantages do change depending on your organisations’ requirements and goals. However here are our top 3:


Improved Business Agility

Business agility has never been more important than now – downturn times when a global shift to remote work caused turbulence in the availability of resources. Speeding up project delivery, low-code allows companies to quickly address challenges in a new working environment. For example, it provides tools to build stopgap solutions for effective resource planning, managing remote teams, and monitoring tasks.


Reduced IT Costs

Low-code software is rich in features, drag-and-drop components, and model-driven logic. In combination with the pre-built user interface, they facilitate and reduce the time of production. The use of low-code can reduce the workload of your in-house IT employees. It means that with the right set of tools and guidance almost any member of the company, quite often even without a technical background, can create an app. People without coding experience can create an app in weeks. Professional developers can release it in record time compared with traditional methods. That changes everything.


Acceleration and Invention

With controlled risks and optimised workload, it is now possible for organisations to discover new applications and services to build and deploy with speed. Agility to introduce new products and roll out applications without disrupting business as usual gives organisations room to innovate with confidence and ease.

With multiple advantages and applications, low-code is on the rise across many organisations in various sectors. Gartner highlights this growth by forecasting that low-code platforms will encompass 65% of application development activity by 2024.

Reasons to Adopt Low-Code Development

Among the numerous reasons for using low-code platforms, the acceleration of digital transformation is the top priority for companies. This transformation is a multi-faceted journey that entails scaling opportunities for organisations and businesses alike.

Generally, low-code tools aim to cover such processes as:

  • Customer Experience (CX) improvements
  • Business Process Management (BPM) & Business Intelligence
  • Legacy App Replacement
  • Internal Process Automation & Robotic Process Automation
  • Faster adoption of AI services
  • Meeting security standards

Of course, before growing your low-code momentum, it is important to know all pros and cons. As with any other tool, it has its pitfalls to consider, like security, and user visibility.
