Citizen Development — What is it?

  • The cost benefits of allowing employees to become citizen developers are significant on two fronts:
  • First, there will not be a need to hire many expensive experienced and knowledgeable developers to build extensive enterprise programs.
  • Secondly, when low code or no-code is implemented, enterprises are greatly increasing the number of employees who can contribute immensely to their digital transformation.
  • Low-code/no-code platforms have also been found to foster cooperation and collaboration within departments in an organisation. Using these platforms with their built-in Agile development tools helps the business side of the enterprise collaborate with the IT group and develop and create new functionalities as a team. It is also an ideal way to ensure that the final outcome is exactly what meets the specific requirements of the enterprise.
  • Considering that creating apps using low-code/no-code involves a visual process using pre-built models, citizen developers can build apps in far less time than it would normally take using the traditional methods. This means that the time spent on app testing and development is also reduced considerably, allowing the organisation to respond to changes in the market and business environment quickly and effectively. As a result of this, productivity levels will also improve.
