In today’s digital era, organizations are rapidly embracing new tools and applications to combat and improve outdated processes. For many companies, switching to a low code or no code approach is the solution.
So what are the factors driving this transition?
1. A Push for Digital Transformation
While the traditional approach to application development was already outdated and unable to keep pace with the push for digital transformation, COVID-19 has only exacerbated the issue further.
The pandemic has placed a big spotlight on organizations that were behind or who had not yet started serious digital transformation initiatives.
These organizations have struggled to maintain their level of customer engagement and operational excellence in a highly interactive, yet remote workforce world.
All of this has further accelerated the demand for low code application development.
2. Outdated Siloed Applications
Most traditional developers are consumed with maintaining the complex siloed applications that have grown and evolved across an organization over several years.
Low code application development platforms, like Pega, can help organizations bridge the gap between outdated siloed and heavily coded applications, and the low code/no code applications required in today’s constantly changing environment.
With their visual drag-and-drop functionality and intuitive process flow capabilities, these applications do not require hundreds of developers. They can be supported by fewer software developers who are certified in the Pega application suite.
And because they are easy to build and deploy, they allow the business users to collaborate with IT in real-time to stand up an application in a matter of days verse months and years for traditional application development.
In fact, any requirements or feedback from the business stakeholders can be directly captured within the Pega application.
