Gartner predicts that low / no-code will represent 5% of all app development by 2024. Clearly, this is the future, but what is it and how can you turn your organization into a no-code company to achieve trends? No-code is changing how companies create and manage applications. It democratizes app developers by creating “citizen developers” that can quickly create applications that meet their business needs over time, reuniting IT and business objectives more than ever before.
Using No-Code’s easy-to-use visual interface and drag-and-drop functionality, anyone can now create and modify own tools without complex coding skills. It builds organizational flexibility and agility, addresses growing IT backlogs and budgets, and helps skilled developers fill IT gaps. Despite the many benefits, adopting a non-code platform will not suddenly turn you into a no-code company. This is a process. Here are three steps to help your transfer:
For a long time, the threat of digital disruption and the need for digital transformation in later times has continued IT strategy. The epidemic exacerbated the threat. Most companies forced quickly rethink their technology strategy into the new digital norm. This strategy was effective for many organizations, but it was also responsive in most cases. Companies are struggling to keep up with the pace of digital trends.
The opportunity with no-code, which is still in its early days, makes that technology strategy more active. We have seen that many organizations still think about technology strategies from the IT lens without considering the organizational structural changes that may be cornered. Think about it: within five years, a critical trust of civic developers could dramatically change how your organization allocates resources, organizes departments, and recruits talent.
Do not future-prove your technology strategy for the slightly evolved version of your current organization; it future-proof for a more democratic environment where everyone can create their own application for their own needs.
