What makes a Low-Code platform?

The growth of low-code systems has led to a wider range of stakeholders being able to directly contribute to the build of projects – without requiring prior coding experience.

As they bridge the gap between developer and stakeholder, providing a unified methodology for building and creation, we take a deeper look into what makes a low-code software, what options are available and where they’re suitable for you.

A low-code development platform provides an environment to build fully functional applications fast and with minimal complex coding. Applications can be SaaS products, websites and mobile apps, all using third-party toolkits.

Low code platforms tend to lead with the visual development of an application. Typically using graphical drag and drop user interfaces. These platforms can take an application idea from concept, to design and then to commercialisation faster than traditional coding. 

Low code platforms are designed so anyone can use them. From developers to commercial teams.

Users with no coding experience are considered ‘Citizen Integrators’ or ‘Citizen Developers’, who are able to build applications, websites, and integrations with graphical user interfaces within low code platforms.

By reducing the complexity of creating solutions from scratch, low code tools provide a framework of prebuilt tools which can be used by anyone. So development time can be reduced, enabling companies to ship products and features faster.
