Rapidly build business applications, with low code development

Empower business professionals and specialist teams to create their own tooling and applications using low code development.

What is low code?

Low code optimises software development processes for accelerated delivery and accessibility. It empowers business professionals without a development background to rapidly build their own applications, models, and proof of concepts, with the simplicity of drag-and-drop.

By standardising technology, not business processes, low code enables your business professionals to rapidly build highly customised business applications and portals that meet their specific needs, combining the best of build and buy and improving collaboration across different capabilities within your organisation.

Low code application examples

Popular use cases include using low code approaches to:

  • Digitise critical business processes.
  • Modernise applications to replace legacy applications.
  • Rapidly create new, highly customised, customer-centric solutions.

A low code model puts powerful tools in the hands of business users who don’t have a classical development background, but do have rich expertise in their domain.

This erodes traditional boundaries between business departments and development – for borderless innovation that improves collaboration, creates new value quickly, and frees up IT to focus on high-value opportunities.

Low code platforms

Your platform must be the right fit for your objectives – whether that’s faster application development, or empowering more people to develop business applications.

Mendix, Simplifier, and Microsoft Power Platform are popular low code platforms. Regardless of platform choice, however, your organisation needs to adapt across your people, platforms, and processes to fully realise the low code opportunity. You need a holistic view that takes into account company culture and crucial considerations like governance and security.
