Your business users have brilliant ideas. Unfortunately, your IT resources are limited to convert those ideas to digital and transform processes. The pace of digital is accelerating and there is no time to wait. This is where Low Code Application Development steps in empowering everyone to develop applications in minutes. So, what then are the building blocks of low code application development?
Low code application development is powered by a platform that enables the following functionality:
1. Design and Develop Apps: Model-driven apps can be developed from scratch, or from an underlying dataset, or various templates. There is Drag and Drop functionality that enables the creation of screens, forms, drop-down menus, labels, buttons, and more. Mobile data entry can be facilitated by the use of forms as the UI in many cases. Build an app for your salespeople to collect account data and integrate with Salesforce or Microsoft Dynamics or perhaps, build an Inspections app and send the data to SAP Plant Maintenance, or maybe convert your paper-based Work Permit to an app for your mobile devices.
2. Manage Data: Various data sources can be managed. Out of the Box Connectors to systems like SAP, Salesforce, Oracle, SharePoint, OpenText, and ServiceNow make it easy to exchange data using a few clicks. Additionally, custom connectors can be developed. Connecting to both cloud and non-cloud systems is made possible.
3. Workflow: Workflow needs to be embedded with just a few clicks by providing webhooks and other mechanisms. Business process workflows and UI workflows both need to be automated. For example, the collaboration between two team members can be enabled by allowing the exchange of data between them or multiple levels of approval can be enabled.
4. Manage: The app lifecycle should be managed easily. Admins should be able to deploy to different environments for example easily with a few clicks.
