Digital transformation a key driver triggering enterprise low-code adoption
The adoption of enterprise low-code has been growing in popularity with organisations that have been stretched to the brink over the last few years. And, organisations of all sizes have been finding that enterprise low-code rapid development platforms enable new ways of increasing efficiency, saving time and money.
One of the key drivers behind the adoption of enterprise low-code is digital transformation initiatives. We have certainly seen this in the public sector, as local authorities work towards the 2020 goal of digitally transforming their public services. But, with digital transformation, the idea is to use technology not just to replicate an existing service in a digital form but also to use technology to transform that service into something significantly better.
And it’s not just about the technology: changing business processes and corporate culture are just as vital to the success of these initiatives. Again, enterprise low-code comes in to play, as it allows iterative, agile steps to be taken and then enables users to test along the way.
This means that the adoption of technology enhances and supports traditional work patterns and processes, actually enabling—even catalysing—innovative, new work patterns and hybrid, cross-functional processes. Digital transformation initiatives enable employees to drive innovation throughout their ecosystem with tools that empower them to define and redefine their roles.
What are the benefits of enterprise low-code?
The benefits of enterprise low-code platforms are compelling enough to merit widespread adoption for all business sectors. Organisations that are evaluating low-code for their digital transformation initiatives are typically hoping to solve a growing number of problems. Chief among these is the need to rapidly build and manage multiple apps for the business, especially with senior management mandating the use of mobile apps as a competitive advantage. Often, with a backlog of mobile or web apps to build, traditional development can be slow, prone to errors, making development teams unable to respond, or they cannot be as agile and flexible as they might like. Low-code alleviates this pressure.
Other benefits include:
Greater stakeholder engagement and satisfaction. Because low-code platforms build and update apps so quickly, developers can share fully functional features with stakeholders in days or even hours. Maintaining a short, dynamic iteration cycle which fosters more active engagement. In addition, there is a clear, ongoing sense of progress and responsiveness.
Lower risk and higher ROI. All the security, cross-platform support, and data integration capabilities have already been built. And low-code platforms can be customised easily. As a result, developers and others can focus on solving business problems rather than working through mundane, error-prone technical requirements. The risk of catastrophic failure drops significantly, giving organisations more confidence to innovate.
Building once and deploying everywhere. The best enterprise low-code platforms are game-changers for those accustomed to traditional methods. Why? Because you can build apps for multiple platforms simultaneously. Not only that, but it can be done in a fraction of the time needed to hand-code an app for just one.
Innovation and impact. Low-code platforms eliminate time-consuming and labour-intensive hand coding apps. As a result, developers can create innovative new functionality or customise features without mundane coding requirements slowing them down.
