Properly implementing low-code

Shorten time to market and reduce IT departments’ workloads

WHAT LOW-CODE OFFERS YOUR COMPANY

Low-code offers you many advantages: You can deliver functionality faster, invest less work in technical basics, support agile working methods and benefit from close cooperation between departments.

  • These advantages are primarily used to
  • optimise inefficient, manual and paper-based processes,
  • modernise organically grown IT landscapes and
  • deliver digital experiences with the shortest possible time to market.

To properly take advantage of the listed benefits, choosing the right platform for low-code is not all that needs to be done. Instead, a number of preparations need to be made in terms of the process models, responsibilities, quality assurance and integration in order to ensure that the low-code promises are kept.

The low-code paradigm addresses two challenges: On the one hand, there are the frequent capacity bottlenecks in IT departments resulting from the wide range of tasks, for example, IT strategy and governance, new developments, supplier management and operations. On the other hand, speed is a success factor, for example, in order to be able to react quickly to market changes, customer requests or regulatory requirements. There are some disadvantages resulting from this conflict:

  • The digitalisation of business ideas takes too long
  • High IT costs for basic functionalities
  • Permanent overburdening of the IT department leads to frustration

In response to this situation, the low-code paradigm aims to make the development of applications accessible to people with no or little engineering background – known as ‘citizen developers’ – and ensure that the greater part of their working time is used for functional purposes rather than technical basics. To make this happen, low-code platforms provide four components in a homogeneous and perfectly integrated environment: drag-and-drop development for the interfaces, graphical modelling of (business) logic, application generation and one-click deployment as well as standardisation, reuse and integration. When correctly used, there can be significant benefits:

  • Shorter time to market
  • Greater cost-effectiveness and focus on core business
  • Less pressure on IT capacity and expertise
  • Satisfaction thanks to more effective collaboration
  • Improved end result quality

Make fact-based and solid decisions – To do this, we jointly consider business issues that would benefit from low-code, the maturity of your IT landscape and the human resources necessary for low-code deployment. We also create the first production-ready applications.

Start small and celebrate your first successes – After a positive evaluation, we integrate the chosen low-code platform into your IT landscape, use the first applications in your day-to-day business and set up a Centre of Excellence.

Apply to other areas, departments and cases – The solid foundation that has been created is now fully utilised and applications are used for other business areas and business issues. The Centre of Excellence makes you autonomous.

USING LOW-CODE SUCCESSFULLY IS NOT A SURE THING

Application developers are known to be in short supply. A new recipe, however, is low-code - a new trend in the ICT scene, which also has the potential to "democratise" application development.
