Low-Code Revolution:
What Are the Low-Code Benefits

Low-code is a software development approach that allows tech and business professionals to deliver transformative digital solutions faster by minimizing the amount of coding. So what are low-code benefits, and how do low-code automation and digitization offer faster results with less work?
According to the Total Economic Impact study conducted by Forrester Research, digitization speeds up business processes by up to 87%, which can generate millions in savings – and that’s just for starters. Let’s take a look at how this competitive edge is achieved.

Why Low-Code?

So why low-code? Well, every organization has business processes, and not all of them (and in some cases, none of them) are automated. Between unconnected emails, spreadsheets, documents, message chats, entries in line-of-business (LOB) application logs, and so on, most will find that an organization has a very specific way of doing things.

In truth, many of these facets become annoyingly difficult when done manually. On top of that, these processes are often prone to mistakes or missed steps and are usually not being measured, meaning employers have no idea where problems are arising from. To combat these tribulations, we have found it’s best to model certain processes in the form of low-code automation.

Some analysts have referred to processes like expense reporting and vacation requests as “hygiene processes,” meaning that they’re important but not “strategic.” They’re not wrong. But all of those improvements to “hygiene” result in room to breathe, time to think, and opportunity to be a lot more strategic. It’s all about an improvement of outcomes.

Transitioning from tactical to strategic processes becomes a focus with low-code automation. Measurement and auditing matter more, as does a desire to refine and improve processes based on what certain metrics reveal. In a business world filled with never-ending competition, it comes down to finding ways to make your company better.

However, this can’t be achieved without the involvement of processes, whether it’s production, marketing, distribution, or sales; simply put, off-the-shelf software used to manage these processes won’t magically give you a competitive edge. By definition, when you use standard software, you’re doing the same things everyone else is doing. So what do you do? Well, you build it yourself.

When to Use Low-Code Platform

ERP, CRM, MEP, and other line-of-business (LOB) applications are systems of record—they probably have some automation options of their own for tactical assistance, but systems of innovation almost always have to be built, not bought. And this idea, at its very core, is what dictates when to use low-code platforms and low-code automation.

As stated before, low-code automation offers faster results with less work. These environments impose some constraints as a trade-off, but those usually result in greater consistency and greater long-term success. What’s important to remember is that not all low-code platforms are created equal. Having to code like a developer is a burden, and for that reason, the best low-code platforms free you from having to think like one.

To truly bring forth a low-code revolution, it’s important to believe the description — the model — is the application. Low-code automation makes efforts easy to create and even easier to explain. Most importantly, it makes those model-driven applications easier to change — and any organization that listens to employees and customers alike will want to make frequent changes, adjustments, and improvements.

A low-code platform that understands collaboration helps users who understand business processes participate in the development process – without the need for hard technological skills. And it gives those with such skills the capacity to build dozens or even hundreds of applications on a single platform without reinventing architecture or retraining users every time.

“We can make changes to applications that support business processes almost immediately – without waiting. And our clients have plenty of reasons for change: new legislative requirements, reorganization of internal procedures, transformation of business strategy due to market expectations, and changes in the business environment. Their effective response to the challenges resulting from the pandemic was amazing to see,” says Łukasz Wróbel, Vice President and Chief Business Development Officer at WEBCON.
