The rate at which enterprise organizations are favoring no-code application development over traditional development methods is increasing. There are many benefits afforded by no-code, from the increased speed of delivery to more effective solutions. Let’s look at five benefits of using a no-code platform.
1. Increased speed of app delivery
The potential to increase the development speed of new software is a huge advantage of a no-code platform. With no-code, it’s possible to create software 10 times faster than traditional development methods allow.
The increase in speed comes from no-code’s drag-and-drop functionality, existing models for business processes, pre-built user interfaces, and data models which allow the quick formation of full-stack and cross-platform apps.
No-code platforms generally support simple to implement APIs, along with the ability to connect to third-party tools which developers already employ. Therefore, no time is lost because of a learning curve.
The one-click application delivery is able to automatically keep track of every change. It also handles database scripts and deployment processes, getting rid of time-consuming deployment and operations processes.
2. Internal resources optimization
No-code platforms enable organizations to function effectively without substantial internal resources, and with less experienced developers than traditional development requires. As soon as organizations begin to outsource tasks and hire external developers, costs soon skyrocket. When using a no-code platform, however, business-side employees are able to contribute to building applications that meet their business needs.
3. Achieving business agility
Business agility allows enterprises to adapt, respond to market changes, and capitalize on new opportunities. Today, leading enterprises achieve agility by employing innovative, digital solutions, such as no-code and low-code technology.
The increased agility made possible by no-code enables enterprise organizations to keep up with consumer demand for more digitized services and products. Because it’s possible to deliver applications across many platforms, customers are able to interact with the business the way they expect to.
4. Multi-experience is made simpler
Today, customers expect to interact with companies via an array of channels, and no-code platforms make it easier to facilitate this. This is referred to as multi-experience and it’s a significant advantage of no-code.
No-code enables enterprises to provide omnichannel customer experiences which rival those of smaller, more agile businesses that are not held back by bureaucracy and legacy systems.
Multi-experience development provides pre-built templates, automated refactoring, as well as simple chatbots. It makes it possible for customers to transition between various forms of engagement and interaction, without needing to learn new steps or duplicate data.
With no-code, the process of providing customers with an optimal experience for every interaction is made faster and less complex.
5. The total cost of ownership is reduced
With no-code, organizations can limit the cost of ownership. It is a cost-effective substitute for traditional software development methodologies. Less experienced developers are required, and business-side employees can play an active role in the development process.
Because the business side can take part in the development of applications, the end result is often more closely aligned with requirements, again making for less costly projects.
Choose a no-code or low code platform based on your business needs, or choose a platform that combines both technologies to support citizen development.
