What is low-code software development?

With so many definitions and terminology referring to low-code, there are various ways to describe what low-code software development is. Things can get pretty technical, but since we like to keep things simple, we’re going to compare low-code development to getting a good cup of coffee.

Imagine all the hassle of needing to collect and harvest the coffee beans, roast them, grind them and finally brew the coffee before you’re able to drink it. Nobody wants to go to all that effort to just get a good cup of coffee, and that is why Starbucks is so successful. Coffee is ready to go and you can get a cup at your convenience.  The same could be applied to software, so why must development be so complicated?

Low-code platforms simplify and speed up development times, and make them far less complicated, allowing you to complete tasks easily and efficiently.

Common features of low-code software development platforms

  • Visual UI and design surface where both business and IT can understand the flow of logic
  • Drag and drop capabilities to build applications quickly
  • No specific coding language is necessary – it’s language agnostic making it more accessible to more developers
  • Pre-built tools and connectors for easy integration, harnessing the power of re-use

Where does Warewolf fit into low-code software?

Using Warewolf requires some technical skill, and although you don’t need to be qualified in any specific programming language, good technical knowledge is important. Warewolf is built for real developers, not citizen developers. Yet business stakeholders are still empowered by enabling them to understand how the systems work so they can add value at every step of the way. There is huge value in bringing skilled developers and business experts together to deliver your systems.

Low-code software development enables business and IT to collaborate and make changes to systems dramatically faster than with hand coding. The ability to make these changes quickly is what sets low-code software apart from traditional development methods.

To understand more on how Warewolf can improve your business processes and how you can work together with your developers, it is important for you to understand the benefits of working with low-code and Warewolf.
