The growing need for rapid digital transformation and the shortage of skilled developers to deploy projects at pace is creating a new phenomenon — an industry-wide demand for cost-efficient low-code development platforms. Low-code platforms can help businesses meet their digital transformation goals and increase speed to market.
Companies not only need to address the urgency of digitising workflows but also increase the efficiency of their sales and operation teams. How? By equipping the average business user with the ability to create the apps needed to work better, without waiting on the IT department. Low-code platforms help you create customer-facing apps as well as internal ones for employees; these highly customisable apps with popular features deliver the ideal user experience.
As companies look to turn more of their employees into citizen developers, more IT leaders and businesses are leveraging the potential of low-code tools. According to Gartner, the use of low-code software development platforms is increasing at a rate of over 20% annually. By 2023, more than 50% of medium-sized to large businesses are expected to implement low-code development platforms.
So why is low-code touted as the future of software development?
Time is money when it comes to developing apps. A dynamic low-code platform like Salesforce can speed up the app-development process, letting you save on cost, time, and effort. With the help of the Salesforce suite of low-code tools, users can create apps, monitor and manage changes easily and reimagine business processes with visual workflows and point-and-click tools.
