What is low code¶
Low-code is an application development method that elevates coding from textual to visual.
Rather than a technical coding environment, low-code operates in a model-driven, drag-and-drop interface. All development skill levels — professional developers, novice developers, subject matter experts, business stakeholders, and decision makers — can use low-code to build value-driven enterprise business applications.
Low Code Features and Benefits¶
Low-code application development platforms abstract and automate every step of the application lifecycle.
Development is more accessible to users without technical expertise, with features that accelerate the development process.
With separate integrated development environments (IDEs) catered to both business users and professional developers, anyone with an idea can use low-code to tackle today’s business challenges.
Low-code provides developers with a dedicated IDE and a sophisticated toolbox tailored to support client-side, server-side, and integration development.
With low-code, professional developers can extend apps with custom code, integrate data from multiple sources, build mobile apps, leverage microservices, and translate business needs into custom solutions.
Rather than wait for IT, non-technical business users can use low-code’s simplified development environment to build their own apps.
Governance cuts down on shadow IT and empowers anyone to build basic apps while IT still maintains visibility and control of the organization’s app landscape.
