The low-code advantage, part 1 – A WTMT special podcast mini-series

By Nuria Martin Garcia

Software is taking over the world. Readers will no doubt be familiar with a wide array of software applications, from entertainment, shopping and cooking apps to your favorite mobile games and social media. Software applications are also becoming ubiquitous in business, engineering, industrial and other organizations. As a result, demands on IT departments for business application development and delivery are increasing. At the same time, delivery timelines are becoming shorter.

Fortunately, low-code application development platforms provide a way forward for IT teams and the companies they support.

What is low-code?

The complexities of building an application from scratch can be overwhelming. There are a multitude of technology, user experience and scalability considerations developers must take into account. Just to produce an application that works on today’s tight timelines is often a herculean feat, but application developers will wish to deliver a final product that is also streamlined and professional.

Low-code enables the rapid construction of enterprise-grade applications that can connect databases, automate processes and a whole lot more. What’s more, low-code can greatly reduce the difficulty, stress and time commitment of building a custom application. In fact, it’s almost as easy as building a castle out of LEGO® bricks.

Low-code podcast

In the first episode of this three-part mini-series, we’ll find out what exactly low-code is, how it’s used, who can use it (hint, you don’t have to be a professional software developer), and how it combines data, logic, and a slick user experience to provide rapid solutions to complex problems. Join our host, Ginni Saraswati, as she learns all there is to know about low-code app development and how it can empower companies into the future, faster. You can listen to the first episode below:
