Companies unable to hire developers—and even businesses with developers that want to free up more of their time—are increasingly turning to low-code or no-code tools. These platforms allow tech and business professionals with no coding experience to build apps and potentially fill talent gaps in their organization and support digital transformation efforts.

p>Low-code platforms can also help bridge the gap between business and IT, as they enable business units to create the apps they need in the way they want them, and the IT team to make any needed coding repairs behind the scenes, without the business unit noticing changes in how the app functions.

These platforms reduce the amount of time it takes to create software, so that business apps can be delivered more quickly, and a wider range of people (sometimes called “citizen developers”) in an organization can contribute to app development.
