No Code is the only way forward: How to drive success in 2022 and the years to come?

Gartner a management consultant predicted that in 2022 there would be an increase in the use of no code and low code tech usage owing to the COVID 19 pandemic. After this forecast, the companies have started to consider these opportunities seriously.

This has also resulted in many companies following the path of no code to easily implement the tasks that were considered hard by the end user. It mainly included workflow digitalization and enhancing customer experiences. This has also increased the efficiency of the team of every department.

Harvard Business Review in this regard has stated that the workflow automation lies with the end users if no code is implemented. It means that they can master the art and at the same time their models keep a strong presence in organizational structure.

The Great Resignation has also boosted the use of the no-code platforms as the companies are now aware that the expensive developers are not in the market. There is a need to empower the end users so that the issues could be handled easily. This idea turns the end users into citizen developers.

As the use of No code is being increased so the need is to keep an eye on the following points to get the best out of this framework.

1. Security Concerns in Low and No Code Platforms

Undoubtedly the no and low code platforms have given rise to citizen developers and have opened new avenues for the business. At the same time, the IT executives must remain on their toes so that the guardrails are integrated within the frameworks that are developed by such developers. It will make governance easy and at the same time will also ensure that the IT policies are implemented across the board.

If the companies are integrating the low and no code methodologies into their IT framework then they must get the employees trained on security practices and make sure that the policies are followed flawlessly. This will ensure that the existing cyber security practices are integrated within the organization.

2. No Code Employees Management

If an organization is hiring low code developers then a proper change management plan must be implemented. It also means that the hiring criteria are also to be changed a bit so that the right talent for the right job is hired. At the same time, such developers must be willing to go above and beyond in developing the applications. The pieces of training must be conducted so that the knowledge remains up to the mark.

The entire framework is to be changed so that the employees can develop the applications with ease. At the same time, they must also have access to the training materials so that they get the best possible support in their time of need. In this way, not only do the operations remain aligned but the company at the same time gets developments at almost no cost.

3. Organizational Structuring for Low and No Code

Low and no code solutions make sure that the new software programs are created with ease. At the same time, it is also easy for the organizations to save time and cost as the high-end developers are not involved in the process and the entire process is handled by citizen developers. To succeed the companies must harmonize the workflows.

There are aspects to consider such as departmental communication, information sharing, and standardized IT implementation culture which makes the aspect even more enchanting. The openness in the development culture also means that standard results are driven by such implementations.

4. Hyperautomation and Seamless Progress

In terms of development and investment, Gartner has forecasted that the trends of low and no code will develop rapidly in the coming three years. These will not be the development trends but the strategic trends which make it even more interesting. In terms of hyper-automation, these trends are considered game changers. With hyper-automation, it is easy to find the effectiveness that can directly be integrated with the business models to increase productivity.

5. Less time for completion and increased readiness

The structure of the low and no code once implemented makes sure that the developers take much less time in developing the applications. These are not only usable but also ensure that the best outcome is generated. The app components can be integrated within the frameworks so that the same work and time are saved. It makes it possible for organizations to increase productivity and accelerate timelines for innovation in a highly customizable way.

The composable enterprises are on the rise kudos to the low and no code developments. The IT and the business staff, in general, can make use of the frameworks to make sure that the times are shortened when it comes to development.

We know low-code/no-code platforms will continue to grow in 2022, building on Gartner’s projection of $5.8 billion for the low-code application platform market. However, the extent to which these platforms make a difference will depend on individual approaches and implementations. Successful enterprises will be able to capitalize on emerging opportunities for low-code/no-code applications while simultaneously building the necessary organizational and security structure. The businesses that do so will reap the rewards of increased agility, creativity, and growth, putting them in pole position for years to come.
