IT professionals are experiencing increasing challenges around application delivery due to developer and skills shortages. In its 2020 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-code Application Platform report, Gartner compares 19 different Low-Code Application Platforms (LCAPs). These LCAPs can help make application development smoother. Want to know what Low-code means and what the main trends and developers are in the field of LCAPs? Then read on quickly!
Firstly, Low-code is the modern approach to developing, deploying and managing applications. You can characterize a Low-Code Application Platform (LCAP) by the use of model-driven or visual drag-and-drop components. These components free non-technical developers from the need to write code. Develop a new application from scratch in a fraction of the time? Or create a faster, more intelligent version of an existing application? A Low-Code Application Platform makes it possible for all developers of different experience levels to easily and quickly create custom applications for web and mobile.
So what can you use a low-code application platform for? There are three different use cases:
Building line-of-business, web-based, data-oriented applications. Even “ordinary citizens” can develop business applications using no-code.
Building new enterprise applications involving web, mobile, data, business logic and external services, including Software as a Service (SaaS).
Automating long-running, changeable and complex business processes. Think workflows and case management with advanced business logic, external services and multiple end-user roles.
As you can see, an LCAP offers a lot of added value. As a result, Gartner expects that by 2023, more than 50% of medium to large enterprises will have adopted an LCAP.
