Dr. Strangecode, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Low-Code

Low-code? How could something that hid my handcrafted, precious code be good for me? And I just knew it would probably spit out code that was worse than the stuff Frontpage produced — with 10 times more HTML than was ever necessary. I was pretty sure my career as a hardcore coder (a badge I wore proudly) was over.

The Top 7 Benefits of Low-Code Platforms

What do you use to build custom applications? Have you considered the benefits of low-code platforms?

Many organizations find low-code development meets many of their requirements. In traditional app development, programmers write every line of code manually (hand-coding). In contrast, a low-code platform requires very little manual coding, if any. Instead, developers use an intuitive, drag-and-drop editor to create visual models of an app’s business logic, integrations and user interface. If that low-code platform is full-featured, generating, compiling and deploying the necessary code is automatic. (more…)

What Is a Low-Code Development Platform?

Low-code is all about building software without re-inventing the wheel. It provides a set of tools that work together to help skilled people create value faster and more reliably. Because low-code is still a relatively new concept, low-code development platforms can be very different. However, there are some basics they share. I'll take a close look at these while I share what a low code development platform is and what it is not.

Application Development Trends: New Research Highlights Major Challenges Facing Developers, Architects and IT Managers

The age of digital transformation has placed incredible pressure on the shoulders of IT. Application development trends – from integrating existing systems to developing new web apps to the accelerating need for mobile computing – are putting greater demands on IT for custom application development.  

To find out how IT professionals are dealing with this pressure, we surveyed more than 3,200 developers, architects, and IT managers from around the world. We asked them about their biggest challenges and what they’re doing about them.   (more…)

Low-Code Earns High Marks in Survey of Middle East IT Decision Makers

Low-code Earns High Marks Infographic - We talk a lot about the value of low-code development. Low-code platforms help overburdened, under-resourced IT departments build apps fast and drive business results. But it means more when we hear it directly from IT managers who face these problems daily. So, OutSystems commissioned IDG Connect to survey IT decision makers in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE. They provided their views on traditional software development versus modern “low-code” approaches.

Why Your Team Won’t Low-Code: Pandora’s Black Box

When I talk low-code platforms with developers, they assure me that they are treacherous black boxes from hell. And they can't afford to run mission-critical services on something they can't control. This logic seems sound – at first. But, it's really not. I'll explain why by shining a different light on black boxes so your team can take comfort in low-code platforms instead of fearing them.

What Is Low-Code?

"What is low-code?" At a recent software and IT conference, a presenter asked people to raise their hands if they knew the answer. No one did. It’s time to change that. Low-code is the combine harvester of the software industry. It lets us deliver value more quickly and more reliably.

A Custom Physician Portal: Why OutSystems Low-Code Platform Is the Cure

When US Acute Care Solutions (USACS) wanted to replace its legacy physician portal, it looked to OutSystems for help building a new physician portal. USACS is the nation’s leading physician-owned provider of integrated acute care. One of the company’s top priorities was to ensure that its new portal was much more collaborative, allowing physicians to complete more of their work outside of the emergency room. (more…)

Why Your Team Won’t Low-Code: Job Loss

In mid-2016, I evaluated the upcoming OutSystems 10 release as a native mobile developer. I knew little of web development and nothing of low-code platforms. After slogging through tutorials, it hit me. I was creating complex products without as much as a blink. And this tool was significantly easier to learn than traditional software development. I began to get excited! A platform this powerful could accelerate the development process, bring products to market at startling rates, and replace— me!?... Excitement faded. Fear set in.

The Low-Code Development Market: Fragmented and Full of Promise

Google recently announced a new low-code solution for developers and we welcome them to the market! They join OutSystems and other vendors (see Oracle earlier in 2016) who recognize that IT teams are struggling with huge backlogs and resource challenges and need a faster, better way to deliver apps.

As a result, the low-code market is booming, and ZDNet predicts it will be a $10 billion industry by 2019. But let’s not celebrate too quickly. (more…)
