What are the most common uses of no-code?
No-code tools are revolutionizing the way professionals tackle difficult challenges, allowing them to quickly and easily create their own software solutions for a variety of projects. From developing websites and applications to streamlining digital processes – all without coding skills – no-code software speeds up development so ideas can come alive faster than ever before. No Code reduces the cost of labor, and eliminates many of the overhead costs too. Additionally, the efficiency and speed of development increases the return on investment by implementing the solution faster.
No-code development empowers teams with incredible agility by taking paperwork-heavy processes and automating them. This invaluable time saved gives the team more opportunities to accomplish meaningful work – rather than become mired in preparation or administration tasks.
What are the most common uses of low-code?
User Interface (UI) design, Platform Integration, API creation, Business Process Management and Containerization are all common uses for low-code development to help speed up the process and reduce the cost needed to create fully functional solutions as opposed to traditional coding methods.
- User Interface (UI) design- In today’s tech landscape, building a user interface can be more challenging than putting together an application. After all, users expect their UI to provide seamless experiences across devices and platforms – from desktops to web-based apps and mobile gadgets. And OSes differ too; what works on one won’t function the same way as another! Fortunately, low-code solutions offer developers the ability to tailor UIs that are quick to update in response to shifting customer demands.
- Platform Integration- with low-code solutions, integrations between applications like CRMs and CMSs can be configured quickly – meaning less manual coding but still plenty of custom configuration options. For instance, Heroku apps can now easily sync with Salesforce in a matter of minutes.
- API- Got legacy apps that need an API? No sweat. With a low-code generator, you can create APIs quickly and easily so your applications are up to speed in no time. Alternatively generating an API manually takes a lot of time, so as with most things, low-code solutions offer you savings of time and allow you an opportunity to integrate the new solutions faster.
- Business Process Management – BPM systems make it easy to create powerful apps for managing or analyzing data. Whether you’re an experienced developer or a newcomer. With their low-code tools and features that can integrate with other systems, let BPMs help speed up your app creation experience.
- Containerization- As businesses embrace the flexibility of deployment environments like Kubernetes, vendors have responded with low-code platforms that can be quickly integrated for applications to run in containers. This option provides an agile and convenient way for companies to deploy their operations across multiple sites – from a private server room all the way out into public cloud infrastructures.
What are the most common benefits of no-code?
With no-code apps, anyone can become a citizen developer – regardless of their technical experience! In a little time and with minimal steps, you can potentially construct your dream app or new software, in as little as just a few hours. So don’t miss out on this revolutionary opportunity to learn something new today. No-code also allows people to save both time and money. It takes much less time to create a no-code app or software solution than with traditional development methods and the labor cost savings can be significant too.
What Industries are most utilizing no-code and low-code solutions?
Publishing, Fixtures Furniture & Equipment, Interior Design, Manufacturing, Logistics, Healthcare, Home Services, Insurance, Retail, Banking, and Marketing.
Will No-Code and Low-Code make learning code obsolete?
These tools are far from detrimental to coders and will absolutely not eliminate the need for code. No-code and Low-code tools are actually beneficial for software engineers as they can help alleviate tedious tasks and free up their time to work on more intricate projects. Not only that but these solutions create jobs that support the IT and DevOps teams – a win-win situation. These tools are time-saving, budget-friendly enhancements to traditional software coding programmers.
What is a Citizen Developer?
Citizen developers are non-code-wielding programmers, who take advantage of no-code and low-code tools to transform their ideas into reality and promote the growth of the business they work for. By utilizing these user-friendly applications, entrepreneurs can discover innovative solutions, empowering them professionally as well as personally.
Can anyone learn to use no-code?
If a person can use a computer, they likely can use no-code tools. There are many different no-code tools out there and some are easier to use than others, however, most no-code platforms have built-in simple-to-use features and when you add the ability to watch how-to videos on YouTube for example, there’s no reason why anyone who wants to use no-code tools cannot do it.
What are the main differences between no-code and low-code?
Not to oversimplify it, but here the names mostly give it away. End users don’t have to know any code at all to use no-code tools, as the coding is built into the tools already. Low-code tools require a bit of coding, to finalize the customization or integration of the software being developed, however, it eliminates the need for coding much of the solution therefore saving a developer a lot of time and helping reduce errors. Building applications without any coding may seem impossible, but that’s where no-code frameworks come into play. With these helpful tools, you can get your app up and running in record time – just be aware that with low-code platforms, some extra knowledge of programming is likely to give it the perfect finishing touch. Ultimately no-code can be used by virtually anyone and low-code tools are designed for those who know some code, so they can build things faster.
Are there limitations to what no-code and low-code tools can develop?
Simply put, yes. Some areas no-code and low-code tools struggle with currently involve Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The bottom line is that businesses require valuable expertise–including knowledge of development and operations–to construct and maintain robust applications. User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) are capable of being created with the no-code/low-code tools for certain, but if a company wants to enhance performance, a developer with custom coding skills might need to be brought in. If a business is looking for any one-of-a-kind solutions, they likely will not find a no-code or low-code solution to build it.
Can I hire Low Code Road to help with my no-code or low-code project?
Yes you can! We are here for that exact purpose. We can help you game plan, then execute on building and ultimately incorporating the new app, program, or software into your environment. Beyond that, we can help maintain the solutions and even work on future updates or add-ons as your business needs evolve.
Are no-code and low-code solutions secure?
There is no singular answer to this, however, there are some things people can keep in mind and do to help make sure their project is more secure. First, as with most technologies, no-code and low-code tools aren’t inherently insecure in and of themselves. The main issue or exposure is more from the wielder of these tools and can be problematic. The process used determines the risk mostly.
Keep these things in mind:
- The platforms you’re using can be risky.
You want to make sure they’re trustworthy, audited, HIPAA, etc.
- Data Governance / Access
People use Low Code and No Code to get stuff done… sometimes meaning they’re going ‘outside’ approved data retention methods, etc. Best solution is to make sure that the citizen developers know why data is managed the way it is. Education so they can keep those policies in mind as they use LCNC to build solutions.
- Loss of Knowledge
If you lose the person who built the app, this can be a problem. This problem is also true for traditional development. Effective documentation is key to addressing this issue. Spreading the knowledge around (partnering with a vendor) also works.
- Many LCNC platforms are built with the expectation that their citizen developers aren’t security experts and therefore built systems to accommodate that.
One thing to remember is that MOST companies are using no-code or low-code to manage processes, systems, and data and aren’t enterprise-level organizations. Instead, they’re small ( <100 employees) and have a felt need for something to manage their systems and data. For these, no-code or low-code is a step up in security from Excel or other high-risk spreadsheets and data repositories.
The security in a no-code or low-code system, along with audit capability, backups, data retention, and logging and the company is lightyears ahead of where they were before implementing no-code or low-code solutions.
Who owns the rights to the data used in a no-code or low-code solution created apps or software: The owner of the data is the company who owns the tool created. In simple terms, if you build a no-code or low-code tool, your data remains your property.
