In an article, entitled The Rise of Low-Code App Development, Forbes discusses the growing trend among businesses to employ low code solutions to business problems. Well, why wouldn’t they? For every 100 people, 99 of them can’t code, and technology is not going to become less prevalent in our lives any time soon. In this study, Gartner imagines that low/no-code apps will comprise 65% of all app development by 2024. This is not simply a trend; it’s the new norm, and will only spread.
Throughout time, as advances in technology make tasks easier to complete, or even redundant, businesses have used these technologies to advance too. From the printing press, to canned foods, telegrams to motor cars, and the mass adoption of the internet, new technology has paved the way for new gains.
Competitors compound the prospect of failing to upgrade, too. Your own inertia is to the gain of everyone else; not only will the technologies they adopt save money in costs, it will increase output, raise productivity, and put them ahead without changing their business structure, model, or products.
Game Theory aside, the adoption of low & no code in business is inevitable. Businesses that do not operate in ways that are cost effective, and able to bring about goals in a reasonable time scale, are not in business for long, and certainly not profitable. To adopt a no-code platform for your business is to bring home the golden fleece of business; agility. Respond to any operational or procedural change, or a need to change, in a scale of days, rather than months, or years, as with traditional business software.
Gone are the days of expensive consultants who charge too much and take too long to make changes you could, with a no-code platform, have made yourself. How do we know? Well, for every 100 people, 99 can’t code, and we know those 99 rather well. Softools’ global app builder community comprises interns & graduates all the way to executives, all of whom have embraced the ability to improve their day-to-day processes on demand, and in exactly the ways they see fit. There are even a few coders that use Softools, simply because it’s quicker, easier, and just as versatile.
No-code is to business processes as Excel used to be. The empowering aspects of Excel - the ability to create your own sheet with its own purpose and functions, tailored to your needs and data, are the same benefits that No-code now holds over business.
