Crush your digitalization challenges with low-code solutions

By Carly Cohen

Digital transformation, a necessary burden

To meet the needs of customers and stay competitive, companies need to take advantage of digitalization efforts and move their production lines into the future. This is, of course, a huge undertaking. Not only can updating your systems be expensive, but these changes also require creating new processes, cross-department collaboration, and a seemingly endless cycle of updating, reconfiguring and analyzing. Low-code solutions can ease this burden.

Why move into the digitalization future?

The demands of consumers are reaching new heights, and so is the speed required to meet productions needs. Businesses must be more agile than ever, and with the amounts of data and devices being used, they need to be more connected than ever. Products require speedy manufacturing and online capabilities. This means digital solutions like the industrial Internet of Things need to be implemented in order to reach quotas and goals. Businesses can no longer rely on the analog; they must move into the digital future in order to meet demand.

Closing technological gaps in digitalization

This digital future presents many challenges for many manufacturers. In a recent survey by independent research firm Tech-Clarity, gaps in companies’ software ecosystems included issues like connecting legacy systems, accessing and analyzing data from multiple systems, and supporting a variety of platforms and devices.

Since digitalization involves both technological updates and process updates, another big challenge companies face is bringing together people from all sides of the business – it’s not just a technological solution that you need, it’s a people solution.

But there’s good news! With low-code solutions, you can close these gaps and ease your digitalization transformation. By implementing low-code solutions as part of your digitalization efforts, you can optimize your experience and take the pressure off your IT departments. Built by using a drag-and-drop program through a graphical user interface, low-code solutions accelerate app development while enabling collaboration at each step. Developers of varying experience levels can create enterprise applications without writing a single line of code. Users can update programs without submitting an IT ticket and seamlessly collaborate with their coworkers. Low-code solutions make digitalization a possibility, on both the technological side and the people side.
