Getting Started With Low-Code

Hello and welcome to yet another blog post from Team Neutrinos.
Today we will touch upon some of the most common low-code myths which remain unaddressed especially in enterprise circles.
Low-Code Platforms are gaining tremendous momentum within enterprises, who took an early plunge into this new category of application development platforms. There are several research reports and constant coverage from analysts and influencers, but this has not helped to influence some of the common beliefs within business and developer communities.
Let us jump right in, shall we?

Old wine in new bottle

Low-Code Platforms have their roots in traditional RAD Platforms as well as BPM Platforms. Though Low-Code Platforms carry some of the legacy from those products, most of the capabilities were never heard of. Be it citizen development, IoT/ AI/ ML or even rapid prototyping and deployment.
Low-Code platforms have taken the enterprise app development game to a totally new level. Thanks to modern technology available at our disposal, they make it possible to develop the most complex software applications with minimal hand-coding and with unprecedented speed of delivery.
Rounding it up, Low-Code Platforms are not a small upgrade to BPM or traditional RAD Platforms. It’s a new product category which will shape the future of enterprise app development.

Can’t do Mobile with Low-Code

Another common belief is that; low-code platforms can only do web applications. For mobile you need a different platform, popularly known as MADP a.k.a Mobile Application Development Platform. While MADP is specifically built for developing mobile apps, low-code platforms are not far behind.
The ideology for modern low-code platforms is to code once and deploy anywhere. Regardless of the platform or device the app is accessed from, the experience for the user should be seamless.
This is a big deal for enterprises, as they do not need to maintain different codebase, resources, infrastructure, etc. They can use one platform to develop their apps and deploy everywhere, where their customers can access it from.

Low-Code = Small Apps

This one is a baggage from early iterations of low-code platforms. When low-code platforms started getting visibility in enterprises, they were most commonly used to experiment with small apps with minimal complexity.
Todaybs low-code platforms are built for scale. We at Neutrinos have used our flagship low-code platform to develop some of the most complex apps for enterprises in diverse industry domains. Be it developing a sensor based IoT billboard app to Delivering a Claims Chat Bot for a large insurer. Low-Code Platforms have been tested for enterprises across the globe.

Low-Code is for Citizen Developers Only

Citizen Development as a concept became popular after low-code platforms made inroads into enterprises.
One of the key benefit of low-code platforms is that it allows non-developers to build business applications with minimum tech knowledge. Though it is a great capability, it does not stop there.
The primary purpose of low-code platforms is to equip professional developers to reduce coding time and create apps faster. Thatbs why the term low-code is commonly adopted by professional developers and no-code is adopted by business people.

Wrapping it up

Low-Code Platforms are a mainstream product category. Enterprises are parking special budgets to implement, adopt and maximize the use of low-code platforms. It is time we let-go of popular beliefs and experience low-code platforms in real-time.
Have you developed any enterprise app using a low-code platform?
