Getting the Lowdown on Low-Code: Who to Follow to be in the Know

On the surface, “Low-Code” development can seem like a no-brainer for a modern organization looking for ways to digitize its business and transform its operations. The new technology promises to speed up the application development process and deliver innovative apps much quicker with better user adoption.

What’s not to like?

Of course, in today’s competitive business with new digital natives, organizations have a lot riding on their app development methods and platforms. They need to have locked-down, reliable DevOps systems in place to deliver many of the apps that run their internal business and, in some cases, provide the actual product customers use (see Netflix, Etsy and Airbnb).

IT departments and business leaders understandably have questions about how low-code development works and whether the new paradigm would work for them. If they’re going to make an investment in a new technology that accelerates their transformation to digital business, they want to be sure they’re asking the right questions and getting detailed answers.

This is creating an active dialogue where experts from various vantage points are sharing their experiences about the ins and outs of low-code.

We’re hearing from developers like Zachary Flower (@ZachFlower), who talks about the need for education, collaboration, communication, delegation and documentation in the low-code process: “While no-code/low-code development platforms might seem like a one-size-fits-all productivity-booster, effectively working them into an organization requires the cooperation of all departments.”

And we’re hearing from CIOs like Isaac Sacolick (@nyike), who argues that low-code has to be seen as more than a DevOps accelerator: “The trick is to use no-code/low-code to improve productivity and usability, not cut corners.”

If you are curious about low-code, we’re hosting a webinar on June 21 to spell out how low-code development can fit into your app dev strategy. The webinar, called “Why Low-Code, Why Now?,” will feature an analyst, an IT leader, and a product expert answering key questions about low-code development.

Forrester principal analyst Jeffrey Hammond (@jhammond), Banco Popular VP of IT Sanjay Shitole, and OutSystems VP Miguel Lopes (@MiguelALopes) will answer the following questions:

  • How low-code development drives speed and agility
  • How to roll out low-code development with your existing team and processes
  • How to leverage low-code platforms to improve digital customer journeys
  • How does low-code address enterprise-grade security, scalability and reliability

The webinar will take place at 2 pm on Wednesday, June 21 and 22 in several time zones. To register for the webinar, click here.
