Low-Code for the Professional Developer

Surveys have shown that professional app developers are skeptical of traditional low-code platforms. Developers fear that low-code platforms will strip them of control, force them to use unfamiliar proprietary tools, and tie them to aging architectures and hybrid mobile containers. Progress takes a different approach to low-code that aims to avoid these pitfalls.

Low-Code Platform Adoption Gets a Boost from Digital Transformation

How do you feel about platforms that promise to deliver apps without coding? If you express some negative sentiment, then you’re like two-thirds of the customers Progress Software surveyed last year. Despite the bad feelings, a review of recent surveys shows that use of low-code platforms has increased and will continue to do so in the near future. The main reason is that the platforms kill two birds with one stone — they address long-standing development challenges that are holding back company-wide digital transformation efforts. However, it is important not to oversell the benefits, which are mostly associated with increasing the speed of development and less about allowing business units to innovate and create code themselves.

Focus on What Matters: Boosting the Productivity of Professional Developers

Low-code platforms have become popular tools for building apps quickly and lots of hype has been created around them. By passing on the keys to app development from the professional developer to the business user, they seem to be opening up new potential to fast-track app delivery. Functionalities such as point-and-click and drag-and-drop have simplified the process, empowering users with a basic understanding of coding to get involved. This might sound like the ideal scenario but reality shows it is not. Simplifying app development and involving business users might result in ending up with generalists unable to perform on either side – business or IT.

When Developers Shouldn’t Trust Low-Code Platforms

The application development world is continuously changing, evidenced by the analyst community’s frequent revisions of their various categories and definitions of application development tools and platforms. The rapid evolution and consequent flux are fueled by organizations clamoring for a single platform and toolset that can help them quickly deliver omnichannel, customer-grade apps spanning desktop, web, mobile, wearables, etc.

The right low-code solution based on open standards can be invaluable in an era of “more apps, faster, that run anywhere.” That said, not all low-code solutions are created equal. Here are three red flags to watch for when evaluating a solution.
