Learning a programming language is similarly complex and time-consuming as learning a foreign language. No-code & low-code solutions provide quick help without programming knowledge.
The path of the no-code and low-code approach
First ideas for programming without programming languages existed in the 1990s. However, the technology was still in its infancy at the time and so the approach disappeared into obscurity for decades. An enormous multiplication of computing power with simultaneously falling prices, ubiquitous Internet and the advance of graphical user interfaces are now giving the idea a tremendous renaissance.
Modern software draws additional layers between the actual source code and the user interface, which simplifies the operation for the user and does not require any programming know-how. These types of IT solutions, which do not require knowledge of text-based programming languages, are now known as no-code or low-code solutions.
The No-Code & Low-Code Functionality
True to the motto “lots of graphics, little code”, No-Code and Low-Code rely on a graphical modular principle. In traditional software development, programmers write code to create desired functionality and capabilities in a computer program or application. This process requires programmers to have in-depth knowledge of programming languages as well as development environments, deployment processes, and test protocols.
No-code platforms encapsulate all that goes on behind the scenes and instead give platform users visual tools that you can easily use to build and configure applications. The platforms usually have reusable components, drag-and-drop tools and clickable switches that realize the certain functions and features. Users can use it to create and administer applications without having any technical knowledge.
Areas of application for no-code & low-code solutions
No-code & low-code are on their way to revolutionize business application development. The spectrum of no-code applications is broad. Some vendors target one industry, other no-code players offer a solution to a specific task, and still others aim to cover all areas of the business if possible. The big dynamic, however, is in the market for specialists. For example, there are no-code providers that are better suited for certain categories or are limited to very specific options.
The major players such as Microsoft, Dell, SAP or Oracle offer back-end integrations to enable thedevelopment, control and operation of applications. This is referred to as Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS). They are cloud-based solutions for integrating applications and data from cloud and on-premise environments. The use of no-code and low-code technologies can also be aimed at optimizing business processes. Intelligent Business Process Management(IBPM) applications are specialists for complex requirements around workflow management, case management and decisions. Furthermore, no-code and low-code application platforms take place in the provision of tools for internal processes and data management (LCAP).
