Get ready for the implementation
Low-code platform implementation needs to be carefully planned to make the most of its capabilities. The implementation process can be divided into the following phases to make it smooth and effective:
Gather all the necessary information for the project; set goals of the implementation, business context and motivations behind the need for change.
Divide the business process you want to automate into specific workflows and determine which company departments are involved in this process. Make sure that all technical and specialized vocabulary is understandable to everyone involved in the project.
This is the actual development work, building and setting parameters in workflows. Low-code platforms that enable business applications to be built quickly, using a drag & drop method, are particularly suited to this.
Ensure the testing phase is well-organized. Assign a number of testers and a strict work schedule. Stick to deadlines. This phase is important not only for the technical reasons of identifying errors, but also psychological, because this is the stage where the attitudes of the future users are most strongly shaped.
In order for end users to want to use the new system, they must not only feel confident working with the new tool, but also learn about the real benefits of using it. Training and an internal information campaign will help to achieve that.
