Citizen-Assisted Development is how organizations deliver better business applications quickly and frequently.
It’s faster than custom coding. It’s less risky than citizen development. And at scale, it costs less than SaaS.
It’s a low-code approach that embraces contributions from users, IT, and development professionals – all working together.
Business applications make up the backbone of modern organizations, and telling users “wait” or “don’t” is dangerous to both the organization’s health and one’s own career. If IT wants to retain and/or reclaim application leadership, it has to innovate.
You need to deliver more applications than ever before
It’s difficult for IT to understand what business really needs
Projects get delayed because of scope creep
IT is not able to react as quickly as business requires
Some believed the way to handle increased demand for business applications was to bypass IT with Citizen Development. That seems to have worked for personal task automation, but not so much for solutions that had to be shared, deployed, and managed. Professionals’ skills shouldn’t be bypassed. Citizens’ insight shouldn’t be bypassed either. The key is to change the tone interaction between them from negotiation to collaboration. And to focus on delivering, not just building, applications.
Business asks for things IT can actually deliver, and IT can respond to ever-changing requests.
Shortened design cycles and assisted maintenance cycles free up time to more applications and automate more business processes.
New applications are delivered up to 10 times faster and better address business needs.
IT becomes eager to build new applications, depends on feedback, and responds to requests for further innovations.
Business users gladly cooperate with IT and feel that they are co-authors of the application.
Employees have a better understanding of the processes taking place in the company and can identify new areas that would benefit from digitization.
