Modern enterprise software should be user-friendly, seamless, intuitive and feature-packed. The demand for IT solutions that check all these boxes is exactly what makes low-code platforms – modern, innovative, highly functional and standardized IT systems that enable users to develop comprehensive business applications without coding – so popular these days, as they can be easily used and operated by users who do not have any coding knowledge or expertise.
What are low-code platforms and what makes them unique?
The first low-code platforms emerged on the market in the 1970s; however, this paradigm did not see much development until the last decade. What makes them stand out among other solution is the fact that they perfectly respond to the needs of modern companies and organizations, since they can successfully replace the services of developer teams and thus solve the problem of shortage of highly skilled IT experts on the market. A low-code platform is flexible and scalable, enabling you to build solutions that are easy to change and modify, thus effectively supporting your organization in achieving business objectives.
What makes the low-code platform paradigm – sometimes referred to as low-to-no-code or low-to-zero-code – a modern and innovative solution is the fact that it combines the feature sets of numerous solutions, including document management systems (DMS), business process management (BPM) software and business process automation (BPA) suites. All this can be done effectively without writing as much as a single line of code, which is particularly important in the modern world, where the easiest procedures and solutions are key. The software is based on a visual approach to building enterprise applications, which are built in a single, standardized and centralized environment which enables users not only to develop, but also to modify and maintain all their creations.
The best low-code platforms and their powerful feature sets
Deploying a low-code platform enables you to speed up the process of enterprise application development, while ensuring centralization, cohesion and standardization across your company’s IT ecosystem. Onboarding is also made easier thanks to their innovative nature, since low-code software is characterized by a low barrier to entry; as a result, your new employees can spread their professional wings faster than ever, all while delivering significant added value to your organization in less than two weeks – something that is virtually impossible to achieve with traditional enterprise software.
The best low-code platforms currently available on the market go above and beyond the barebones for these solutions by offering easy change management – something that is crucial from a business point of view. All this is possible thanks to the bespoke InstantChange™ technology available in the WEBCON BPS platform, offered by Polish enterprise solution developer whose solutions were chosen by numerous Polish and international companies. This innovative and future-proof technology allows not only to quickly deploy business applications, but also to easily change and customize them with immediate results, which is something that any dynamically growing and developing organization that wants to maintain its competitive edge will certainly appreciate in the digital age.
