Technology developments mean that the industry is changing all the time. One reality of a tech-driven world is that there aren’t nearly enough developers to keep up with the demands across industries. In fact, Dice reports projections that overall developer employment will increase 21% over the next eight years. In light of global changes with COVID-19, economic downturn, and political instability, there’s more pressure again to use tech solutions for everything from remote learning, mass conference calls, expanded cloud security, and dramatic uptake in e-commerce. The bottom line here is that it’s likely we’ll see greater pressure in hiring combined with mass skill shortages in terms of supply and demand.
One option for projects that would typically have long lead times of months and even years is low-code rapid application development platforms. These platforms enable organisations — including non-IT staff — to use drag and drop interfaces to develop, deploy and integrate app-based solutions far more quickly. This capacity to deliver required development with far less in the way of developer involvement is truly significant both in the scope of the existing global challenges related to budgets and the shortage of software engineers. Vijay Pullur writes on the subject for Forbes, “For instance, rapid application development platforms are considered a viable solution because they reduce the dependency on technical resources, empower existing teams to upskill and enable development teams to achieve more with a self-service approach to application development.”
So where to from here for implementation? To provide further information as well as analyse the differences between Low Code and No Code RAD Platforms, ERS IT Solutions developed this infographic below. They have outlined more about the specifics of the development process and how this strengthens overall business operations to bridge gaps while also breaking organisational silos. Check out the full graphic below to get started with Low Code development today.
