Nowadays, you don’t even need to master sophisticated programming languages or become a development expert to create extravagant applications because there’s a way to create them with minimal coding, via low-code or no-code app development.

What is low code?

Low code refers to an approach to application development that involves little to no coding. It may be necessary to have a basic understanding of coding in this environment but it is far faster than writing entire lines of code from scratch. This method mostly relies on visual interfaces with simple logic and drag-and-drop functionality.

What is no code?

No code is an approach that allows users to develop apps without knowing how to code – in other words, it allows less tech-savvy people to develop apps using simple drag-and-drop building blocks.

Sound simple? Because it is!

In comparison to traditional app development, both low code and no code platforms have gained so much attraction due to their simplicity and flexibility. Hence, people with no coding skills, as well as skilled coders, are using them because they increase productivity, lower costs, and increase business agility.

According to Gartner, 70% of new enterprise applications will use low code or no code technologies by 2025, up from less than 25% in 2020.

Because there are so many to choose from, we’ll look at some of the top low code or no code platforms that may best suit your demands:

It can be challenging to choose the perfect low code platform for your company. Not every platform provides the capabilities and functionality that your business needs. When faced with such a diverse range of options, businesses must first consider what they ultimately want to achieve with a low code platform.

But one thing is certain: Organisations that want to grow must find new ways to increase productivity. Investing in low code platforms could be a contemporary solution to this problem.
